Version: 2.0.6 2021-07-02 00:06:29 UTC

  apt (2.0.6) focal; urgency=medium

  * RunScripts: Do not reset SIGQUIT and SIGINT to SIG_DFL (LP: #1898026)
  * test suite fix: Check for and discard expected warning from MaybeAddAuth
  * Fix downloads of unsized files that are largest in pipeline (LP: #1921626),
    and warn about packages without size (option Acquire::AllowUnsizedPackages)
  * JSON hooks 0.2 and assorted JSON bugfixes (LP: #1926150)
    - encoder fixes:
      + json: Escape strings using \u escape sequences, add test
      + json: Actually pop states
      + json: Encode NULL strings as null
    - json: Flush standard file descriptors before calling hooks
      (this avoids output from hooks in middle of apt output)
    - non-code changes:
      + test/json: Make the test hook more reliable
      + Fix a typo in json-hooks-protocol.md (thanks to Brian Murray)
    - semantic changes (new fields, hooks, and protocol 0.2):
      + json: Add origins fields to version
      + upgrade: Add JSON hook support (AptCli::Hooks::Upgrade)
      + json: Add `package-list` and `statistics` install hooks
      + json: Hook protocol 0.2 (added upgrade,downgrade,reinstall modes)
    + Fix a typo in json-hooks-protocol.md (thanks to Brian Murray)
  * Avoid infinite loop on EOF on media change prompt (LP: #1928687)

Version: 2.0.4 2021-01-21 18:06:18 UTC

  apt (2.0.4) focal; urgency=medium

  [ Julian Andres Klode ]
  * Merge 2.0.2ubuntu0.1 and 2.0.2ubuntu0.2 security updates with 2.0.3
    release.
  * pkgnames: Correctly set the default for AllNames to false, and do not
    exclude virtual packages if --all-names is specified (LP: #1876495)
  * Remove expired domain that became nsfw from debian/changelog
  * patterns: Terminate short pattern by ~ and ! (LP: #1911676)
  * Improve immediate configuration handling (LP: #1871268)
    - Do not immediately configure m-a: same packages in lockstep
    - Ignore failures from immediate configuration. This does not change the
      actual installation ordering - we never passed the return code to the
      caller and installation went underway anyway if it could be ordered at a
      later stage, this just removes spurious after-the-fact errors.
