  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Handle the keyboard query window closed callback being fired twice
    (LP: #865493).
  * Allow focusing of labels when we're in the screen reader
    acessibility profile, so that Orca can read them
    (LP: #856782, LP: #856773).
  * Make sure we account for the size of the installation and swap
    partition when calculating the bounds for the partition resizer
    (LP: #769350).

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Don't install duplicate copies of console-setup-apply,
    localechooser-apply, and netcfg-wrapper.
  * Bump fallback Ubuntu version number in ubi-language to 11.10.
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * For cases where selecting a different location may imply a different
    dialect of the language, i.e. Portuguese and Chinese, take care to set
    LANG to something reflecting the location and
    LANGUAGE/LC_MESSAGES/LC_CTYPE/LC_COLLATE to something reflecting the
    language (LP: #590108). This roughly matches the behaviour of
    language-selector.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: localechooser 2.37ubuntu2,
    partman-partitioning 81ubuntu3.

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * Update ubiquity-dm to export self.username as SUDO_USER.
    Make gsettings work properly later on during the install.
  * Whenever we call wget, set --tries=1 instead of the default
    of 20.
  * If we think we're offline, don't try to contact geoip or run
    rdate. (LP: #868668)
