lightdm (1.18.3-0ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release:
    - Fix error that caused stdin to be closed. This seems to have lots of bad
      side effects (greeter not working correctly, multi-seat failing).
    - Add support for greeters running inside sessions. This is enabled by
      setting X-LightDM-Allow-Greeter inside the session .desktop file.
      The session can then use liblightdm to connect one greeter to the
      daemon. The communication is done using a socket
      (/var/run/lightdm/<user>/greeter-socket) that is accessible to any
      process run by that user. Consider controlling access to this socket
      using a MAC system such as AppArmor. (LP: #1582242)
    - Fix various memory management issues exposed by the use of in-session
  * debian/patches/lp1605117.patch:
    - Applied upstream
