  apt (0.8.16~exp12ubuntu10.27) precise; urgency=low

  * When using the https transport mechanism, $no_proxy is ignored if apt is
    getting it's proxy information from $https_proxy (as opposed to
    Acquire::https::Proxy somewhere in apt config). If the source of proxy
    information is Acquire::https::Proxy set in apt.conf (or apt.conf.d),
    then $no_proxy is honored. This patch makes the behavior similar for
    both methods of setting the proxy. (LP: #1575877)

  * Backport patches from David Kalnischkies to fix crashes with dynamic
    cache remapping (LP: #957231):
    - Do not dereference the storage for the unique strings as the pointer
      can change at the time of writing the strings, so first store it
      temporary and then save the index in the (possibly new) pointer
    - Handle moved mmap after UniqFindTagWrite call (Closes: #753941)
