   [ Raphaël Hertzog ]
   * Officially adopt the package. Closes: #808048
   * Better handle empty package lists.
   * Drop ixp4xx from available armel flavors, the image has been gone since
     linux 3.17.
   * Add symlinks for libgpl.c32 and libmenu.c32 which are required by
     the "Hardware Detection Tool (HDT)" menu entry that live-build adds
     in the advanced menu.
   * Add EFI boot support with grub-efi, thanks to Adrian Gibanel Lopez.
     Closes: #731709
   * Fix usage of config/packages.chroot/*.deb that has been broken by the
     switch to GnuPG2 by default by no longer using GnuPG but relying
     on APT's trusted=yes attribute instead.
     Thus we no longer have remaining key in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg
     after building. Closes: #816204
   * Try to reuse /isolinux/splash.png in default grub configuration.
   * Drop debian/source/{local-options,options} as they are no longer needed.
   * Pass components to debootstrap --second-stage. Closes: #806782
     Thanks to Sjoerd Simons <> for the patch.
   * Fix behaviour of (undocumented) "#nif" conditional test. Closes: #801379
     Thanks to Erik Cumps <> for the patch.
   * Export SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH when running chroot commands. Closes: #832998
     Thanks to Chris Lamb <> for the patch.
   * Set xorriso's "modification time" to SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH. Closes: #831379
     Thanks to Chris Lamb <> for the patch.
   * Support “lb config --debootstrap-script <script>” to use an alternate
     bootstrap script when running debootstrap. Thanks to Sjoerd Simons
     <> for the initial patch. Closes: #790033
   * Manual pages updates by jnqnfe. Closes: #774730
   * Drop left-over translation files for removed lb_testroot command.
   * Get rid of useless bootstrap_archive-keys script. Closes: #773775
   * Drop an optimization in chroot_archives that has undesired side-effects.
     Thanks to jnqnfe for the patch. Closes: #775989
   * Drop gpgv and debian-keyring from Suggests.
   * Fix Check_installed function when checking against host. Thanks to jnqnfe
     for the report. Closes: #774807
   * Bump debhelper compat level to 10.
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8.
   * Use a grub theme that integrates reasonably well with the current
     background picture.
   * Default for LB_UNION_FILESYSTEM is now "overlay" just like in live-boot.
   * Update the way we generate the version of live-build that is displayed by
     lb --version.
   * Instead of renaming kernel for syslinux, create hardlinks.
   * Simplify grub configuration code to use only long kernel names. Put
     advanced options in a submenu. Use distro-agnostic labels.
   [ Kristian Klausen ]
   * Include ext{3,4} journal size when calculating image size. Closes: #801712
   * Switch URIs from http to https. Closes: #809699
   * Fix typo in binary_syslinux. Closes: #818916
   * Correct syslinux/extlinux mbr.bin path. Closes: #773833
