  livecd-rootfs (2.525.20) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * Drop /etc/update-motd.d/51-cloudguest from cloud images; this is not
    consistent with current Ubuntu Advantage product language. Any future
    customizations to update-motd for cloud images should be done via a
    package instead.

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * Minimize the number of manually installed packages in images by marking
    dependencies of metapackages as automatically installed. (LP: #1800610);
    but do not mark direct dependencies of ubiquity as auto installed. This
    caused cryptsetup to remain auto on the installed system in bionic (see
    LP #1801629)

  livecd-rootfs (2.525.18) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Michael Hudson-Doyle ]
  * Changes to kernel handling for live-server: do not include kernel/initrd
    in filesystem.squashfs but rather install it in a throwaway layer on top
    of installer.squashfs and fish kernel, initrd and modules out of that with
    an initrd hook that records kernel metapackage name in /run and mounts
    /lib/modules from a squashfs on the ISO.
  * Do no install openssh-server in the base filsystem for the live server
  * A few simple tweaks to reduce size of live servers installer.squashfs:
    - Do not run apt-get update (which can bring in package lists if we are
      unlucky wrt publisher schedules).
    - Run apt-get clean to clear out downloaded debs of curtin/casper and
    - Do not install user-setup.
    - Use the core snap from the base filesystem if present.
  * Do not include curtin in the live-server installer.squashfs as the
    version of subiquity that includes it in the snap has now been released to

  * lubuntu: Select lubuntu-gtk-core task as well, so we get the HWE filter
    applied to the explicit dependencies it has on Xorg-recommended packages.
  * lubuntu: Manually install some packages that fall out due to the above.

  * More changes for raspi3 build support (LP: #1805668):
    - Fix 100-purge-grub-legacy-ec2-arm.chroot to not gate on ARCH as that's
      not defined in .chroot hooks.
    - Use the new linux-firmware-raspi2 for boot binary blobs as
      raspi3-firmware includes upgrade hooks that conflict with our image
