mate-desktop-environment (1.20.0+5) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Alex ARNAUD ]
* debian/20_mate-debian.gschema.override:
+ Restore switch-panels function to make it possible to use panels only with
keyboard, for example for blind users (follow-up change for #892748).
[ Mike Gabriel ]
* debian/control:
+ Update Vcs-*: fields. Package has been migrated to
+ Bump Standards-Version: to 4.1.4. No changes needed.

mate-desktop-environment (1.20.0+4) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/control:
+ Recommend mate-tweak and mate-menu in m-d-e--extras bin:pkg. Suggest
m-d-e-extras by m-d-e bin:pkg. (Closes: #895788).
+ Drop D (m-d-e-core): gvfs-bin. Deprecated in Debian. For this, various
gfvs-open calls got replaced in other MATE packages (i.e. caja, mate-menu,
mate-notification-daemon). (Closes: #877742).
+ Bump versioned D on caja to 1.20.2-2~ (part of gvfs-bin deprecation).
+ Bump versioned D on mate-notification-daemon to 1.20.0-2~ (part of
gvfs-bin deprecation).
+ Note on mate-menu: mate-menu had gvfs-bin dependency in its control file,
so no version bump is required here. Whereas caja and m-n-d did not
reference gvfs-bin in their control files, so explicit version bumping
in m-d-e-core is our way to address that flaw.
