ubufox (2.9-0ubuntu1) utopic; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- Don't cap the Ubuntu version number used in the startpage URL to a hard
coded value. Although we build the URL using system information, we
always had a hardcoded maxium value for the Ubuntu version in order to
prevent the startpage being broken in the development release. However,
the 14.10 startpage already exists, and there will be a server-side
change to make this unnecessary in future development cycles
