These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2017-6507: Preserve unknown profiles when reloading
apparmor.service (lp#1668892, boo#1029696)

- boo#1017260: Migration to apparmor.service accidentally
disable AppArmor. Note: This will re-enable AppArmor if
it was disabled by the last update. You'll need to
'rcapparmor reload' to actually load the profiles, and
then check aa-status for programs that need to be
restarted to apply the profiles.

These non-security issues were fixed :

- Fixed crash in aa-logprof on specific change_hat events

- boo#1016259: Added var.mount dependeny to
apparmor.service

The aa-remove-unknown utility was added to unload unknown profiles
(lp#1668892)
