  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-security; urgency=medium

  * Drop the cpu-microcode.py detection plugin, as exposing microcode
    packages will not be necessary once kernel metapackages have a hard
    dependency on them
    - remove detect-plugins/cpu-microcode.py
    - update UbuntuDrivers/detect.py

  ubuntu-drivers-common (1: xenial-proposed; urgency=medium

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Fix memory leak in get_alternatives(). Make sure to always free
      alternatives->current_core and alternatives->current_egl.
    - Partially drop the drm code, and get information about connectors
      from sysf. This fixes a long standing performance issue (LP: #1586933).
    - Disable persistence mode before powering down the dGPU.
      If persistence mode is not disabled, gpu-manager will not be able to
      unload the nvidia module (LP: #1619306).
    - Make sure to load and unload nvidia-drm. This fixes a problem that
      prevents the dGPU from being powered off in hybrid systems with
      recent nvidia drivers (LP: #1619306).

  [ Ying-Chun Liu (PaulLiu) ]
  * Quirks/quirkinfo.py:
    - Catch and ignore UnicodeDecodeErrors in dmi info, as some machines
      may report board_name as ffffffffffff0a to mean empty, and this
      causes an error in python 3 (LP: #1320868).

  * gpu-manager.c:
    - Pass the arguments in the correct order when getting
      the list of alternatives (LP: #1575960).
      Thanks to Rafał Cieślak for the fix.
