  ubuntu-drivers-common (1:0.5.2.4) bionic; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * UbuntuDrivers/detect.py,
    UbuntuDrivers/kerneldetection.py,
    tests/ubuntu_drivers.py,
    ubuntu-drivers:
    - Provide DKMS fallback for the "install --gpgpu" case
      when no linux-modules-nvidia are available for the driver
      and for a specific kernel (LP: #1843796).
      We have new tests to cover this scenario now.
    - Show provider of kernel modules in list --gpgpu
    - Fix linux metapackage detection.
      This was meant to be driven by the latest kernel version
      But it was only partially implemented.
      Complete the implementation and update the relevant tests.
    - Make sure to install the linux-modules-nvidia package for the
      kernel flavour in use, when passing the --gpgpu argument, so
      that we can deliver a working NVIDIA installation, provided
      that the EULA was accepted.

  [ Jean-Baptiste Lallement ]
  * ubuntu-drivers,
    UbuntuDrivers/detect.py,
    tests/ubuntu_drivers.py:
    - Add a --free-only parameter, so as to allow installing only the
     available free drivers. This is a backport of only the
     ubuntu-drivers-common specific part of LP: #1819207, since
     it is tied to the rest of the changes to the test suite.
    - Add support for testing against a fake archive with free and
      non-free components.
    - Add static code checker.
  * debian/control:
    - Add pycodestyle and pyflake8 to build depends.

      we recommend the latter.
