 x2goserver ( RELEASED; urgency=medium
   [ Mihai Moldovan ]
   * New upstream version (
     - x2goserver/sbin/x2gocleansessions: don't overzealously try to remove old
       nxagent sockets. If the nxagent process already vanished, simply forget
       the remembered session. Otherwise we might delete sockets that have been
       re-assigned to other sessions in the meantime.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gostartagent: convert X2GO_PORT searching algorithm to
       pure bash and let script fail if no display port is available.
     - x2goserver/sbin/x2gocleansessions: fix syntax error introduced in last
       change to this file.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: make compatible with changes in
       Arctica's nxagent. Also change to an all-bash algorithm. Fixes: #1151.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: fix a typo that caused the script to not
       work properly - with or without Arctica's nx-libs.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: rename ${setxkbcomp_opts} to
       ${setxkbmap_opts}, that's what it really is.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: setxkbmap expects a parameter called
       "-option", but nxagent uses the key "options". Make setxkbmap happy.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: $BASH_REMATCH is tricky, actually fetch
       the first match. In the $BASH_REMATCH array, index 0 contains the *full*
       match, while indices 1+ only contain the partial matches. We're only
       interested in the first partial match.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gosetkeyboard: only match up the first ending quote
       character in a non-greedy way. This will not support nested quotes
       within values, but we probably don't need this feature anyway.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gostartagent: try to enable lingering via systemd's
       loginctl utility before calling x2goagent. Fixes: #1198.
     - x2goserver-xsession/etc/Xsession: support Devuan just like Debian, give
       useful error message in case the OS is unknown.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gostartagent: fetch hostname via "hostname -s" and do
       not rely on the HOSTNAME variable. The latter is only set automatically
       by bash if it's not already part of the environment. We might get
       "garbage" in this way (and one user actually did.)
     - x2goserver/bin/x2golistshadowsessions: whitespace only.
     - x2goserver/sbin/x2gocleansessions: close syslog at program exit.
     - x2goserver/sbin/x2gocleansessions: whitespace only.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2golistshadowsessions: copy and use a few needed utility
       functions from x2gocleansessions.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2golistshadowsessions: mark unavailable functionality
       with FIXME comments.
     - x2goserver-xsession/etc/Xsession: add support for OS RT via
       /etc/os-rt-release (file needs to be created by upstream first, bug
     - x2goserver/{bin/x2golistshadowsessions,
       lib/x2go{dbwrapper.pm,sqlitewrapper.pl}}: backport listshadowsessions*
       DB functions and unmark them as FIXME entries.
     - x2goserver/lib/x2go{sqlitewrapper.pl,utils.pm}: allow arbitrary-length
       user names, user names starting with digits and drop $ as a valid user
       name character. Fixes: #1229.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2goruncommand: use dbus-run-session to start a new dbus
       user session if available. Only for full desktop sessions. Backported
       from a Debian patch.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2goresume-session: backport HOSTNAME changes from
     - x2goserver/bin/x2go{resume-session,startagent}: catch errors while
       inserting values into database more gracefully. Fixes: #1230.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gostartagent: write hostname errors to stderr to make
       X2Go Client (and maybe PyHoca?) fail.
     - x2goserver/{bin/x2go{runcommand,suspend-session},
       sbin/x2gocleansessions}: remove hopefully redundant HOSTNAME export
     - x2goserver/etc/x2goagent.options: remove file, moved to x2goagent.
     - x2goserver/Makefile: actually unreference x2goagent.options file as
     - x2goserver/bin/x2go{resume-session,startagent}: revert error catching
       while inserting values into database. The current code structure relies
       on ignoring failures and retrying until an operation succeeded, which
       may eventually happen or just as well may never happen. We need
       something smarter here.
     - x2goserver/bin/x2gostartagent: log x2goagent startup command to syslog
       in debug mode.
   * x2goserver.spec:
     - Add mandatory perl-generators Build-Requires as per
     - Correct usage of mime and desktop database upgrade scriptlets and
       dependencies. Fedora mandates to not depend upon shared-mime-info, even
       not for the scriplets. Additionally, FC24 has deprecated usage of the
       mime database update scriptlet and FC25 has deprecated usage of the
       desktop database update scriptlet. (Open)SUSE mandates to pull in
       shared-mime-info and desktop-file-utils as post/postun scriptlet
       dependencies and provides special macros since 11.4. Older versions are
       handled via the usual commands.
     - Simplify systemd usage a bit and make sure that it's restarted on Fedora
       and RHEL-based distros. FIXME: Not enabled by default on FC/RHEL/*SuSE.
     - Use Suggests instead of Recommends, as an even weaker dependency. We can
       live just fine without printing or fmbindings and no functions of the
       x2goserver package as well will be impacted. The DEB control file also
       uses "Suggests" for this.
     - Fix RPM spec syntax error in shared-mime-info dependency section.
     - Fix %{?fedora} macro usage.
     - Add the correct package name to the %posttrans scriptlet, we only need
       it for x2goserver-fmbindings.
     - Make sure that we don't go into branches just because a macro is not
       defined on our platform.
     - Work around a bug in SuSE's mime DB update script...
     - Make sure that there's always at least one (nil) command in the if
       command list.
     - Break older SLES builds on purpose to see what branch is *actually*
       taken. Will be reverted shortly.
     - Fix typo in %if condition (0%?{?fedora} instead of 0%{?fedora}.)
     - Contrary to other information that says "brackets" and consistent with
       RPM's source code, grouping is done via "(" and ")" in conditions.
     - More platform-specific condition fixup.
     - Pull in shared-mime-info as a build requirement only on *SuSE and add
       comment regarding why desktop-file-utils is always needed.
     - Also add a trans(action)-requirement on shared-mime-info for older
       RHEL-based distros.
     - RPM spec does not allow %elif or %elseif, which lead to all weird kinds
       of errors. Split these up into nested conditions.
     - There is no %trans scriptlet, we're using %posttrans, so the dependency
       should be specified as Requires(posttrans) as well.
     - Pull in dbus-run-session if possible. Only available on Fedora, SLE12+
       and OpenSuSE 13+.
     - Pull in x2goagent >= explicitly, first version that reflects
       the x2goagent.options file move.
   * debian/po:
     - Tiny fixup on author name.
   * debian/control:
     - Whitespace fixes.
     - Add BD on dh-systemd. We'll need it for systemd integration.
     - Depend upon dbus for dbus-run-session.
     - Pull in x2goagent >= explicitly, first version that reflects
       the x2goagent.options file move.
   * debian/rules:
     - Call the systemd addon to process and install the systemd service file.
     - Don't fail if we don't have the systemd addon. Systems that don't have
       that will likely not use systemd in the first place.
   [ Martti PitkƤnen ]
   * debian/po:
     - Translate DebConf templates to Finnish.
   [ Orion Paplowski ]
   * x2goserver.spec:
     - Requires(post) does not imply Requires, and missing ones on grep and the
       SQLite perl module.
     - Fedora >= 21 and (Open)SUSE >= 11 now allow Recommends.
     - perl(:MODULE_COMPAT...) is only needed for perl modules. Drop from
       x2goserver-printing and x2goserver-xsession.
     - Delete .packlist which may be in different locations.
     - Sort some %files entries.
   [ Mike Gabriel ]
   * New upstream version (
     - x2goserver/bin/x2goruncommand: stop exporting LD_LIBRARY_PATH when using
       Arctica's nx-libs and its new Xinerama feature. Fixes: #1153.
     - Make x2goruncommand aware of the LXQt desktop shell.
     - x2goserver/x2gosqlitewrapper.c: fix implicit declaration of execv().
     - x2goserver/: backport x2golistshadowsessions.
