ubufox (3.4-0ubuntu1.17.10.1) artful-security; urgency=medium
* Don't install the extension and make xul-ext-ubufox an empty package
for now, as there's no functionality we need to keep post-Firefox 57.
This may be resurrected in the future for restart notifications.

ubufox (3.0-0ubuntu1) vivid; urgency=medium
* New upstream release
- Delete the plugin installer wizard implementation and associated code.
Upstream have disabled PFS and removed their plugin installer wizard now

(LP: #1398174)
2014-05-23 - Chris Coulson <chris.coulson@canonical.com>
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
(LP: #1320485)

ubufox (2.8-0ubuntu1) saucy; urgency=low

2012-10-03 - Chris Coulson <chris.coulson@canonical.com>
ubufox (2.4.1-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low
* New upstream release v2.4.1
- Fix a crash that occurs when the apt cache is broken
- Fix a whole bunch of memory leaks in the plugin installer

2012-08-16 - Chris Coulson <chris.coulson@canonical.com>
ubufox (2.4~r353-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low
