 xen-tools (4.4~beta1-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream beta release
     - Code deduplication to unify the xen-*-image scripts
     - Moves /usr/lib/xen-tools/ to /usr/share/xen-tools/
     - Use as default Debian mirror if no mirror is given
       and xt-guess-suite-and-mirror is not used.
     - Fix symbolic link hooks/centos-6/15-setup-arch (Closes: #690299)
     - Execute END block not on --version/--help/--manual (Closes: #684346)
     - Move code for --boot feature to END block. Fixes missing SSH
       fingerprint display if --boot was used. (Closes: #679183)
     - Correctly handle aborts in END block. (Closes: #704882)
     - Use local parameter instead of global variable in unMountImage.
     - Also recognize "M" and "G" instead of "MB" and "GB" as size unit for
       --memory. (Closes: #691320) Document the recognized units.
     - Default DomUs to use the noop scheduler (Closes: #693131)
     - Overwork TLS disabling on Debian and Ubuntu
     - xen-list-images now also outputs the file name of the config file.
     - xen-list-images and xen-delete-image now understand --extension.
     - Fixes "--extension=" with empty parameter.
     - Sarge amd64 case handle properly
     - Remove CVS revisions from --version output
     - Support for Debian Jessie, Ubuntu Raring and preliminary support for
       Ubuntu Saucy (debootstrap doesn't have support for Saucy at the time
       of writing)
     - Preliminary support for xl toolstack
     - xen-create-image: Consistently use runCommand() instead of system()
     - xt-install-image: Don't bail out if only cdebootstrap is installed
       but not debootstrap (Thanks Elmar Heeb!)
     - Makefile accepts DESTDIR=…
     - Move examples from debian/examples to examples.
     - Uses File::Which exclusively (no more findBinary, no more `which`),
       added (build-) dependency on libfile-which-perl
     - Knows about module-init-tools → kmod transition in wheezy/raring.
     - Adds default mount options for ext4, identical to ext2/ext3.
     - Ships /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/xen-tools for generating Dom0
       initrds also suitable for DomU usage. Trigger update-initramfs.
     - By default install linux-image-virtual instead of linux-image-server
       on Ubuntu Intrepid and newer (Hopefully closes: #640099, LP #839492)
     - Installs a legacy grub in all pygrub based Debian/Ubuntu DomUs to be
       able to update the menu.list automatically.
     - hooks/ installDebianPackage no more installs recommends.
     - hooks/ Rename installCentOS4Package to installRPMPackage.
       Add installCentOS4Package wrapper for backward compatibility.
     - Fix filesystem tools installation in 91-install-fs-tools (which was
       broken since 4.3~rc1-1) by merging 91-install-fs-tools back into
       90-make-fstab. (Closes: #715340) Also supports RPM-based
       distributions now.
     - Fixes export of environment variables. Previously they could contain
       dashes and then were only accessible from within Perl, but not from
       within Bash.
     - Fixes creation of "ARRAY(0x…).log" named log files.
     - Makes some options (like --pygrub) negatable.
     - Uses Test::NoTabs; add according build-dependency.
     - Removes unused Perl modules Xen::Tools and Xen::Tools::Log from
       source code. Also removes the according tests from the test suite.
       → Remove no more needed build-dependency on Moose.
     - Better documents and checks requirements for the --apt_proxy
       value. (See #623443 for the corresponding apt issue.) Add (build-)
       dependency on libdata-validate-uri-perl.
     - Use Data::Validate::{Domain,IP} for IP addresses and hostname checks.
       Add corresponding (build-) dependencies on
     - Fixes broken quoting in list of required binaries
     - Declares POD encoding. Fixes FTBFS with Perl 5.18. (Closes: #720519)
   * Add debian/gbp.conf to be able to to build xen-tools with
   * Clean up debian/rules:
     - Don't mention (generated) upstream changelog explicitly,
       dh_installchangelogs finds it by itself if it exist. That way
       building out of a freshly clone git repository does not fail due to
       a missing upstream changelog.
     - Use dh_auto_{install,clean}; use "$(MAKE)" instead of "make" where
       dh_auto_* can't help. No more explicitly call "make manpages", it's
       a depedency of "make install" in the next line anyway.
     - Finally switch to a minimal dh style debian/rules.
   * Bump debhelper compatibility to 9
     - Update versioned debhelper build-dependency
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.4 (no changes)
   * Add dependency on ${perl:Depends} to fix dpkg-gencontrol warning.
   * Bump copyright years in debian/copyright.
   * Apply wrap-and-sort.
