Bug Description

PAM can request more than one input in a translations, e.g. requesting both the username and password at the same time. This needs to be supported in the daemon and the greeter.

lightdm (1.3.3-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  [ Robert Ancell ]
  * New upstream release:
    - Add a new remote session type. These sessions create a temporary local
      account and authenticate against a remote server. The session is an
      application that accesses that remote session (e.g. VNC, RDP etc)
    - Support multiple simultaneous PAM prompts (LP: #1043593)
    - Set utmp ut_host field to the X display address (LP: #1027760)
    - Correctly reap unused authentication sessions (LP: #990661)
  * debian/liblightdm-gobject-1-0.symbols:
    - Updated

  [ Michael Terry ]
  * debian/patches/06_disable_remote_login.patch:
    - Always return an error when trying to log in to remote sessions,
      until the FFe is granted (which is bug 1040221)
