Updates for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx: wget, aptdaemon, python, libgudev, libudev, usb creator and mountall.

Wget.

1.12-1.1ubuntu2
1.12-1.1ubuntu2.1

 1.12-1.1ubuntu2.1:

  * SECURITY UPDATE: arbitrary file overwrite via 3xx redirect
    - debian/patches/CVE-2010-2252.dpatch: don't use server names in
      doc/wget.texi, src/{http.*,init.c,main.c,options.h,retr.c}.
    - This update changes previous behaviour by ignoring the filename
      supplied by the server during redirects. To re-enable previous
      behaviour, see the new --trust-server-names option.
    - CVE-2010-2252

Wget is a network utility to retrieve files from the Web using http(s) and ftp, the two most widely used Internet protocols. It works non-interactively, so it will work in the background, after having logged off. The program supports recursive retrieval of web-authoring pages as well as ftp sites -- you can use wget to make mirrors of archives and home pages or to travel the Web like a WWW robot.

Wget works particularly well with slow or unstable connections by continuing to retrieve a document until the document is fully downloaded. Re-getting files from where it left off works on servers (both http and ftp) that support it. Both http and ftp retrievals can be time stamped, so wget can see if the remote file has changed since the last retrieval and automatically retrieve the new version if it has.
Wget supports proxy servers; this can lighten the network load, speed up retrieval, and provide access behind firewalls.

aptdaemon.

0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4
0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1
 0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1:

  * debian/patches/06_rosetta_po_update.patch:
    - updated translations from LP: #445603 to get updated
      translations for the policy.in file (that is not
      supported by language packs)

Aptdaemon allows normal users to perform package management tasks, e.g. refreshing the cache, upgrading the system, installing or removing software packages.

Currently it comes with the following main features:

* Programming language independent D-Bus interface, which allows to
write clients in several languages
* Runs only if required (D-Bus activation)
* Fine grained privilege management using PolicyKit, e.g. allowing all
desktop user to query for updates without entering a password
* Support for media changes during installation from DVD/CDROM
* Support for debconf (Debian's package configuration system)
* Support for attaching a terminal to the underlying dpkg call This package contains the aptd script and all the data files required to run the daemon. Moreover it contains the aptdcon script, which is a command line client for aptdaemon.


libgudev.

1:151-12
1:151-12.1
151-12.1:

  * Pull latest keymaps from trunk. These include the following LP bugs:
    - Toshiba Satellite U300 volume keys (LP: #271706)
    - Samsung N220 and many other models (LP: #554066)
    - Acer travelmate 4720 (LP: #569815)
    - Logitech Cordless Wave Pro (LP: #592371)

This library makes it much simpler to use libudev from programs already using GObject. It also makes it possible to easily use libudev from other programming languages, such as Javascript, because of GObject introspection support.

This package contains the shared libraries.


libudev.

151-12
151-12.1
151-12.1:

  * Pull latest keymaps from trunk. These include the following LP bugs:
    - Toshiba Satellite U300 volume keys (LP: #271706)
    - Samsung N220 and many other models (LP: #554066)
    - Acer travelmate 4720 (LP: #569815)
    - Logitech Cordless Wave Pro (LP: #592371)

libudev provides a set of functions for accessing the udev database and querying sysfs.


mountall.

2.15
2.15.1
2.15.1:

  * conf/mountall.conf: set $LANG so that messages appearing in plymouth are     translated (LP: #569365); this is a temporary workaround until upstart is     fixed to pass the appropriate env vars to all init scripts


mountall mounts filesystems when the underlying block devices are ready, or when network interfaces come up, checking the filesystems first.


python apt daemon.

0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4
0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1
0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1:

  * debian/patches/06_rosetta_po_update.patch:
    - updated translations from LP: #445603 to get updated
      translations for the policy.in file (that is not
      supported by language packs)

Aptdaemon is a transaction based package management service. It allows normal users to perform package management tasks, e.g. refreshing the cache, upgrading the system, installing or removing software packages.

This package provides the Python modules required to run aptdaemon and to implement a client.


python apedaemon-gtk.

0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4
0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1
0.11+bzr345-0ubuntu4.1:

  * debian/patches/06_rosetta_po_update.patch:
    - updated translations from LP: #445603 to get updated  translations for the policy.in file (that is not  supported by language packs)


Aptdaemon is a transaction based package management daemon. It allows normal users to perform package management tasks, e.g. refreshing the cache, upgrading the system, installing or removing software packages.
This package provides the Python GTK+ widgets to implement a fully working graphical client. The widgets can be used to initiate, to monitor and to control a transaction.


udev.

151-12
151-12.1
151-12.1:

  * Pull latest keymaps from trunk. These include the following LP bugs:
    - Toshiba Satellite U300 volume keys (LP: #271706)
    - Samsung N220 and many other models (LP: #554066)
    - Acer travelmate 4720 (LP: #569815)
    - Logitech Cordless Wave Pro (LP: #592371)


udev is a collection of tools and a daemon to manage events received from the kernel and deal with them in user-space.

Primarily this involves creating and removing device nodes in /dev when hardware is discovered or removed from the system.

Events are received via kernel netlink messaged and processed according to rules in /etc/udev/rules.d and /lib/udev/rules.d, altering the name of the device node, creating additional symlinks or calling other tools and programs including those to load kernel modules and initialise the device.


usb creator.

0.2.22
0.2.22.1
0.2.22.1:

  * Mangle whether the 'ui' keyword is in syslinux.cfg based on the OS version.
    (LP: #608382)


This is a simple utility designed to make startup disks from Ubuntu CDs.

This package is a transitional package, to allow moving from usb-creator to usb-creator-gtk, now that we have more than one frontend. This package can safely be removed after upgrade.
