Changelog

2017-03-06 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <cyphermox@ubuntu.com>
os-prober (1.74ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=medium
* Merge from Debian unstable. (LP: #1664731)  Remaining changes:
- Mount btrfs subvolume @ when present to access a btrfs formatted
rootfs.
- When called with WINOSDATA, return the list of Windows partitions
containing the system instead of only listing these containing the
bootrecord.
- Sort detected kernels by modification time, if possible.
2017-02-01 - Cyril Brulebois <kibi@debian.org>
os-prober (1.74) unstable; urgency=high
[ Ivo De Decker ]
* os-probes/common/50mounted-tests: Skip partition when FS type is
LVM2_member, since one isn't supposed to touch physical volumes
directly. This avoids hanging during “dmcreate setup” with
unencrypted LVM setups (Closes: #853277).
2017-01-31 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <cyphermox@ubuntu.com>
os-prober (1.73ubuntu3) zesty; urgency=medium
* Think-o; re-add the is_dos_extended() function in common.sh which went
missing. This is the right fix for the removal of the test in main
os-prober, but is still required elsewhere in os-prober. (LP: #1660159)
2017-01-27 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <cyphermox@ubuntu.com>
os-prober (1.73ubuntu2) zesty; urgency=medium
* Remove is_dos_extended test in main os-prober; this was a left-over from
the merge in previous upload; extended partitions should already be
skipped for the mount tests as per 1.72. (LP: #1659837)
2017-01-26 - Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre <cyphermox@ubuntu.com>
os-prober (1.73ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=low
* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- Mount btrfs subvolume @ when present to access a btrfs formatted
rootfs.
- When called with WINOSDATA, return the list of Windows partitions
containing the system instead of only listing these containing the
bootrecord.
- Sort detected kernels by modification time, if possible.
* debian/control: Drop Vcs-Bzr; it's hugely out of date.
2017-01-21 - Christian Perrier <bubulle@debian.org>
os-prober (1.73) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Cyril Brulebois ]
* Add support for Mageia, thanks to Neal Gompa (Closes: #851983).
2017-01-20 - Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>
os-prober (1.72) unstable; urgency=medium
* Improve logging of mounting and setting partitions to ro/rw (thanks, Ivo
De Decker).
* Use a read-only device-mapper entry if possible rather than setting the
underlying device to read-only (thanks, Ivo De Decker; closes: #701814).
Note that this introduces a dependency on dmsetup on Linux
architectures.
* Remove the "blockdev --setro" code path entirely, since the read-only
device-mapper arrangement supersedes it and should be safer (closes:
#648208).
* Make os-prober-udeb depend on grub-mount-udeb on all Linux and kFreeBSD
architectures, now that it's available on them all (thanks, James
Cowgill; closes: #776275).
* Make os-prober depend on grub-common on Linux and kFreeBSD, in order
that grub-mount is consistently available.
* Fix detection of /usr/ partition as a GNU/Linux root partition when
/lib* directories are moved to /usr/ completely (thanks, Hedayat
Vatankhah; closes: #698733).
* Make the yaboot parser more tolerant about the syntax of "append"
options (thanks, Hedayat Vatankhah; closes: #674561).
* Disable debugging if OS_PROBER_DISABLE_DEBUG is set (thanks, Hedayat
Vatankhah; closes: #698598).
* Replace basename/dirname with shell string processing (thanks, Hedayat
Vatankhah; part of #694668).
* Call dmraid only once (thanks, Jeff Mahoney).
* Fix typos in README (thanks, Nyav; closes: #803155).
* Add os-release support (based loosely on a patch by Török Edwin; closes:
#794409).
* Add Devuan detection (thanks, David Hare; closes: #801631).
* Work harder to avoid trying to mount extended partitions (thanks,
Philippe Coval; closes: #784709).
* Drop " (loader)" suffixes on Microsoft operating systems (thanks, Chris
Lamb; closes: #787418).
