* debian/control:
- bump Standards-Version

maximus (0.4.14-1ubuntu1) maverick; urgency=low
* Give back some ubuntu changes as alpha1 will still be netbook-launcher:
- debian/patches/01_change_autostart_for_une.patch:
Move autostart phase from desktop to applications, so that it doesn't
block the startup of other programs, and the scheduler can sort out
which program to give the CPU to. This compacts the CPU usage on
- debian/rules: move autostart .desktop file to etc/xdg/xdg-une/
(start only in une session)
- debian/{pre,post}inst: handle conffile move
