* Tue Dec 10 2019
  - Update to version 2.5.4:
    + Plug a leak that becomes pretty huge after a while of running
    + Fix a buffer-overflow.
* Tue May 28 2019
  - Update to version 2.5.3:
    + Fix a crash.
    + Support for GGA messages from more NMEA sources.

    + Allow multiple clients on the same D-Bus connection and add API
      for it. This is mainly targetted for Flatpak location portal.
    + Add API for apps to explicitly delete their client objects.
      Long running apps, like gnome-settings-daemon and Flatpak
      location portal, should use that to ensure Geoclue knows when
      these apps are not actually using it and hence it doesn't need
      to keep running needlessly.

    + Update location on connectivity actually changing.
    + Try not spamming Mozilla Location Service.
    + Fix unexpected exit when non-active clients are connected.

    + Don't crash on invalid accuracy level request.
    + The demo agent now watches for geoclue on D-Bus if it's not
      running already, instead of giving up. This solves a
      race-condition, which makes geoclue completely unusable.

  - Add vala BuildRequires: New optional dependency, build vala
  - No longer nuke during build geoclue-demo-agent.desktop files,
    upstream wants us to package them.
* Tue May 08 2018
  - Add geoclue2-Fix-safety-header-name.patch: public-api: Fix safety
    header name. It should be based on the filename.

* Thu May 03 2018
  - Update to version 2.4.10:
    + Fix issues introduced by last release 2.4.9:
    - A crash on startup.
    - Revert the new desktop ID detection code as that turned out
      to not work for non-root user that geoclue is supposed to be
      run as.

      stop eventual security problems.
* Wed May 02 2018
  - Update to version 2.4.9:
    + Modem GPS refresh rate is now based on the location refresh
      rate of apps.
    + Refuse location access if no app-auth agent is registered. This
      fixes a security hole where an app requests location access
      before the agent gets to register itself and we end up giving
      out location access even though user has disabled it.
    + Port desktop ID detection to Flatpak >= 0.6.10.
    + The default timeout on the service binary is now the same as
      the service itself: 5 seconds.
    + Demo applications:
    - where-am-i now allows setting location refresh-rate.
    - Only install demo agent's desktop file if it's enabled.
    - Build and install demo agent unless disabled explicitly.
    - Autostart the demo agent by default on non-GNOME platforms,
      since an agent is required now and no one other than GNOME
      yet provides one.
  - Add pkgconfig(libnotify) BuildRequires: New dependency.
* Thu Apr 12 2018
  - Update to version 2.4.8:
    + Fix threshold for detecting too old location update.
    + Explain in the configuration what the applications white-list
      is meant for.
    + Allow instant location updates from modem-based GPS.
    + Fix a deadlock case in the helper library.

    + Fix a potential crash.
    + More verbose warning on invalid accuracy from NMEA source.
* Fri Apr 07 2017
  - Drop practically empty %pre section (because of the shell comment,
    it was non empty and would needlessy spawn /bin/sh).
  - RPM group corrections.
* Tue Mar 28 2017
  - Update to version 2.4.6:
    + Add to white-list:
    - gnome-color-panel for "Night Light" functionality.

    + Other minor fixes.
  - Drop geoclue2-permit-Night-Light.patch: Fixed upstream.

    changes in location settings in gnome.
* Wed Mar 15 2017
  - Split out new package system-user-srvGeoClue: create a user that
    can be required by different package (e.g. NetworkManager has a
    rule based on the user account. With the user created separately,
    NM can now require the user even without geoclue2 being
* Wed Mar 01 2017
  - Add geoclue2-permit-Night-Light.patch: Add "Night Light"
    functionality to the whitelist (bgo#779343, fdo#100008).
* Thu Feb 02 2017
  - Drop convenience shortcut for rcgeoclue, as this is a dbus
    activated service, there is no point in that shortcut, no human
    should ever manually call it. Following this, filter warning now
    produced via rpmlintrc.
* Fri Jan 27 2017
  - Update to version 2.4.4:
    + Fix a potential crash.
* Wed Sep 07 2016

    + Add a TimeThreshold property that allows clients to limit
      location updates by time.
    + Annotate default value of DistanceThreshold property.

    + Reliable desktop ID detection for xdg-app. This together with
      latest gnome-shell and gnome-control-center, allows for
      per-application geolocation access controls.
    + Don't require xdg-app applications to pass a valid desktop ID
      since Geoclue can automatically detect it.
    + Don't allow xdg-app application to become user-authorization
    + Correct introspection namespace version for libgeoclue.
    + Option to disable the backend build.
    + Demo: Provide reason to access location data.
    + Demo agent:

    * Make use of compass device if available, through iio-proxy.
    * Fix a hang on client starting twice.
    * More helpful error on agent rejection.
    * Improved documentation.
    * Do not ship generated D-Bus service files in the tarball.
    * Only allow the geoclue user and root to call methods on agents.
    * Fix ignoring of valid location updates due to comparison of
      stances in different units.
    * Correctly handle two consecutive location updates with same
      mestamp on them.
    * Correctly handle late location update.
    * Build system fixes:

    + Avoid a crash by ensuring requested max accuracy is within
    + Fix GPS coordinates parsing.
    + Fix GeoIP on machines without WiFi hardware.
    + Gracefully handle inexistent agent.
    + Stop sources whose accuracy level becomes higher, rather than
      lower, than the requested level.
    + Keep old location object alive on D-Bus for a bit longer to
      ensure applications are not accessing it still after it is
    + Don't enable the modem. Seems at least GNOME takes care of
      modem enabling for us and besides this shouldn't be done by
      geoclue anyway (fdo#85040).
    + Wait for modem to be enabled before checking availability of
      location capabilities and using them. This is particularly
      important for pin-enabled modems.
