---------------
unity (3.8.16-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream version:
    - Unable to load icon text-x-preview at size 48 in a loop (lp: #794556)
    - Display garbled upon restoring original resolution (lp: #795454)
    - Display garbled upon connecting external displays (lp: #795458)
    - Panel disappears after resolution change (lp: #795459)
    - Dragging the launcher with right mouse button is
      confusing as menu pops up (lp: #735031)
    - In a double monitor setup the Unity top panel in the second screen is
      cut at the right (lp: #750481)
    - Launcher tooltips sometimes don´t show (lp: #769335)
    - Menu key should open quicklist for the selected item in the launcher
      (lp: #750778)
    - unity is spamming ~/.xsession-errors when windows are closed
      (lp: #767642)
    - Dash button ignores transparency when clicked. (lp: #767733)
