Changelog

* Wed Sep 21 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Update to version 8.8.0 (Stable series):
    + This release of open-vm-tools matches the VMware Tools package
      released with Workstation 8.0 and Fusion 4.0.
      It's targeted at desktop users who want the latest features in
      (VMware's) Unity, HGFS and drag & drop support.
  - Add open-vm-tools-vmxnet+kernel-3.0.patch: HAVE_NETDEV_PRIV is
    gone in kernel 3.0 and netdev_priv is in kernel since 2.6.6.
  - use set_permissions instead of run_permissions on 11.4+
* Thu Jul 21 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Update to version 2011.07.19:
    + Fix an issue in the HGFS driver that could lead to a kernel
      panic.
    + Update some code to support new compiler and kernel versions.
    + Minor bug fixes and code cleanup.
  - Changes from version 2011.06.27:
    + A few enhancements to Unity: XFCE support, better interaction
      with "the other" (Ubuntu's) Unity and compositing window
      managers, better X error handling, and a few bug fixes.
    + few bug fixes in HGFS, and minor bug fixes in other components.
    + Otherwise, mostly code cleanup.
* Thu Jun 02 2011 prusnak@opensuse.org
  - updated to 2011.05.27:
    + Mostly cleanups and a few bug fixes.
  - fixes [bnc#673267] [bnc#690491]
* Tue May 31 2011 prusnak@opensuse.org
  - use -Wno-unused-but-set in optflags so it will not fail build
    while using -Werror
* Wed May 25 2011 prusnak@opensuse.org
  - added check in initscript whether VMTOOLSUSER_BIN exists
* Fri Apr 29 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Udpate to version 2011.04.25:
    + Mostly cleanups and small bug fixes in this release.
    + Logging is enabled by default in vmtoolsd, writing to syslog.
      The default log level is not chatty, so few messages should
      make it to syslog during normal operation.
    + The GUI version of the toolbox was removed.
* Wed Apr 27 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Extend the init script to detect the name of the balloon driver,
    which changed several times in the kernel.
* Thu Apr 14 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Update to 2011.03.28:
    + HGFS mounter and vmusr's suid wrapper were changed to avoid
      issues with symlink attacks. A new mount utility for vmblock on
      Solaris and FreeBSD was added.
    + The VMCI driver was thoroughly reworked so that it can serve as
      both the host and guest VMCI driver. This is mostly targeted at
      supporting nested VMs.
    + vmusr got better integration with X's session manager,
      including proper cleanup during session teardown.
    + Unity has been enhanced to better handle some desktop
      environments.
    + Many small bug fixes in other areas, including updates for
      newer Linux kernels.

    + Some copy & paste issues with KDE were fixed.
    + Mostly cleanups and bug fixes, with a few build enhancements.
  - Changes from 2011.01.24:
    + Mostly cleanups and bug fixes.

    a few weeks. As a consequence, remove the sources (they are in
    current kernels):
    + pvscsi.tar.bz2
    + vmxnet3.tar.bz2
    + vmemctl.tar.bz2
  - Fix some lint warnings: obsolete only <, not <=, Add PreReq:
    permissions to the -gui package.
* Thu Apr 14 2011 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Fix build with Factory: verify the list of modules that are not
    yet merged into the main kernel.
* Wed Dec 22 2010 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Update to version 2010.12.19:
    + New version of DnD code lands in open-vm-tools. The host part
      of the new DnD protocol is not available yet in VMware
      products, though.
    + vmtoolsd gets some new functionality to support new features
      being developed internally.
    + vmxnet driver for FreeBSD fixed to allow changing the MAC
      address.
    + lots of bug fixes and other cleanups in various areas.
  - Re-enable building of X dependenices (with_X 1)
  - Disable unity on openSUSE < 11.4. It requires glib >= 2.24.

  - Add vmmemctl.tar.bz2, extracted from open-vm-tools 2010.02.23.
* Mon May 31 2010 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Better logic to easily disable modules that got inlcluded in the
    Linux Kernel, for bnc#605085.
* Thu Apr 22 2010 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Re-introduce vmxnet3 on openSUSE <= 11.2. Up to then we have
    kernel 2.26.31, which does not bring the vmxnet3 driver yet.
    The driver itself is the last one shipped with open-vm-tools,
    version 2009.12.16.
* Wed Apr 21 2010 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Send SIGUSR1 to vmware-user process when the services are being
    stopped. This possibly solves bnc#544400.

    + Bug fixes in several areas (DnD, backup support, thread safety)
    + Updates in Linux kernel modules for compatibility with newer
      kernels.
    + New functionality in the Unity support code.
* Tue Mar 23 2010 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Disabled vmxnet3 building. this only did not give an error anyhow
    as there was a typo, thus having the module already disabled for
    quite some time.
  - bnc#590329: Re-add lost 50-vmnics.conf file.

    + some fixes in configure.ac to try to correctly support newer
      distros.
    + vsock/vmci improvements.
    + bug fixes in the vmxnet / vmxnet3 drivers, and FreeBSD's

    + vmxnet3 for Linux is now upstream (as of Linux 2.6.32), and
      will be removed from later releases of open-vm-tools.
    + pvscsi will be available upstream starting with Linux 2.6.33
      and at that time will be removed from open-vm-tools.
  - Disable building of vmxnet3 if kernel is 2.6.32 or newer.
* Mon Nov 23 2009 dimstar@opensuse.org
  - Update to 2009.11.17
    + Lots of refactoring and cleanup in the code, mainly targeting
      the definition of a set of public APIs.

  - Remove the autoreconf call. We do not patch any Makefiles anymore.
  - Require libvmtools0 from the -devel package.
  - Drop the rpmlintrc file. Permissions are correctyl set, devel

    * This will be the last release with support for Linux
      kernels < 2.6.9.
  - fix compatibiliy update script to redirect stderr to /dev/null
    (in case the script is not found, do not scare the user)
* Tue Jul 21 2009 prusnak@suse.cz
  - added || : to modprobe -r and umount calls in vmtoolsd [bnc#523342]
* Fri Jun 19 2009 dominique-obs@leuenberger.net
  - Updated to 2009.06.18
    * Mostly a bug fix release.
    * vmhgfs now is able to use vsock as a transport (although
      backend support for HGFS over vsock is not yet released in
      VMware products).
  - Removed patch open-vm-tools-wiperPosix.patch. An alternative
    solution was integrated upstream
  - Dropped patch open-vm-tools-rpath.patch: merged upstream
* Sat May 23 2009 dominique-obs@leuenberger.net
  - Updated to 2009.05.22
    * Mostly a cleanup and bug fix release.
    * Fix a build issue where a symlink attack could cause the
      open-vm-tools build to overwrite data (by placing a symlink in
      /tmp).
    * Second (and last?) batch of changes to clean up duplicate files
      in the source tree, including Solaris and FreeBSD kernel
      modules andother module-specific shared files.
    * Plugins now are properly built using plugins_LTLIBRARIES so
      that "-rpath" doesn't need to be used (this would cause an
      RPATH entry to be added to the final binary, which some tools
      didn't like).
    * open-vm-tools now properly detects PAM and enables PAM support
      in the code.
  - Removed -rpath.patch. Variation of it integrated upstream
  - Added patch to consume (-wiperPosix.patch) the result of fgets
  - BuildRequires pam-devel
  - The pam miss-naming on x86_64 has been fixed upstream
  - Add a new -rpath patch. Not everything is solved upstream.
  - Delete arch dependent files from /usr/share (not yet needed)
* Sat Apr 25 2009 dominique.leuenberger@tmf-group.com
  - Upgrade to snapshot 2009.04.23
    * Implemented copy & paste support for RTF data and file contents.
    * guestd has been removed from open-vm-tools; vmtoolsd is now the only
      option for the main tools service.
    * Added vmblock and vmmemctl modules for Solaris (under the CDDL).
    * vmware-user can now work with both vmblock-fuse and vmblock.
    * Linux HGFS now has a stream-based (TCP, vsock) transport, still under
      development.
    * First batch of changes to cleanup duplicated files in the source tree.
      Most duplicated files in the Linux kernel modules have been cleaned up.
  - Extensive rewrite of the spec file:
    * make use of the now upstream provided make install
    * configure --no-root-privileges, to not install mount.vmhgfs as suid
  - Add patch open-vm-tools-2009.04.23-rpath.diff: removes the rpath logic
    which was introduced for the vmusr and vmsvc plugins. libtools is broken
    in this respect. (patch submitted upstream for review)
  - Extend preun section with  service rename (vmware-guest -> vmtoolsd)
    (patch provided by prusnak)
  - forcibly activate vmtoolsd service also on update.
  - fix up the KMP rename: for this to work we need to provide / obsolete
    vmware-kmp and vmware-kmp-<kernelflavor>; otherwise, zypper starts pulling
    in other kernels.
* Fri Mar 20 2009 dominique@leuenberger.net
  - rename vmware-KMP to vmware-guest-KMP for easier identification
    of the use and to avoid confusion (users installing the KMP on the
    vmware hosts) (bnc#481137)
  - create subpackage libvmtools0
* Thu Mar 19 2009 dominique@leuenberger.net
  - Upgrade to snapshot 2009.03.18
    * Mostly a bug fix release.
    * The new DnD V3 protocol is now available in open-vm-tools.
    * vmtoolsd is now preferred instead of vmware-guestd
    - vmware-guestd will most probably be completely removed in the next release.
    - > vmtoolsd is not yet standard enabled in openSUSE packages.
  - Obsolete merged patches vmxnet and vmxnet3.patch.
* Mon Mar 09 2009 mmarek@suse.cz
  - renamed modprobe config to /etc/modprobe.d/50-vmnics.conf
    (required by new module-init-tools).
