rhythmbox (0.11.6svn20080805-0ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low

  * New upstream snapshot:
    - correctly use uris unscaping and fix a crasher (lp: #254255)
  * debian/control.in:
    - updated libmtp requirement
  * debian/patches/80_new_libmtp_build.patch:
    - change to build using the new libmtp version
