parted (2.3-8ubuntu5) precise; urgency=low

  * Backport from upstream:
    - HFS/HFS+ probe: don't let a corrupt FS evoke failed assertion
      (LP: #796891).

parted (2.3-8ubuntu4) precise; urgency=low

  * At least some Intel Macs get rather upset if we revert to a protective
    MBR, so try harder to avoid this and to do a better job of writing a
    hybrid MBR:
    - Write a type code of 0x83 for more filesystems, and 0xda for
      non-filesystem partitions.
    - Do not rely on filesystem probing to recognise EFI System Partitions.
    - Write a protective partition starting at LBA 1 if we find an EFI
      System Partition or BIOS Boot Partition in the first position, even if
      it does not really begin at LBA 1 (LP: #856826).
    - Ensure that protective partitions corresponding to an ESP or BBP
      always have starting cylinder 0, head 0, sector 1.
    - Don't revert to a protective MBR just because the first GPT partition
      wasn't recognised as anything in particular.
    - Add tests for hybrid MBR syncing.

parted (2.3-8ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Add 16-dos-partitions.patch: Fix parted to correctly handle
    more than 16 partitions on dos partition tables.
  * Add dm-part-sync.patch: Backport fix to allow modifying partitions
    on dmraid disks while other partitions are in use.
  * Replace dmraid.patch: Reimplemented and forwarded upstream,
    allows dmraid raid10 disks to show up (LP: #311179)
  * Replace loop-partitions.patch: this patch used to make sure that
    we don't try to partition loop devices. Now it backports a few
    upstream changes to allow partitioning loop devices since that is
    supported on Linux since 3.0. It includes a change that also fixes
    support for > 16 partitions.
  * Add skip-floppy.patch: don't probe floppy drives. (LP: #910379)
