    - Upgrade Thunderbird to 1:52.5.2-2~deb9u1.0tails1 (Closes: #15033)
    - Upgrade gdk-pixbuf to 2.36.5-2+deb9u2.0tails1 (Closes: #15177).
    - Upgrade bind9 to 1:9.10.3.dfsg.P4-12.3+deb9u4.
    - Upgrade libxml2 to 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.2+deb9u2.

  * Minor improvements
    - Upgrade Linux to 4.14.13, which is the first kernel that has the
      "[x86] microcode/AMD: Add support for fam17h microcode loading"
      commit, that's needed to load the AMD fam17h microcode for
      mitigating the Spectre vulnerability (CVE-2017-5715).

  * Bugfixes
    - Drop Claws Mail persistence setting migration. Whenever
      persistent Claws Mail setting is enabled, this creates an empty
      ~/.icedove/ directory, that prevents Thunderbird from starting
      (Closes: #12734).

      time syncing resulted in a shift back in time (Closes: #14250).
    - Tails Installer: when cloning Tails to another USB drive, check
      if the target device has enough space *before* any destructive
      actions are made (Closes: #14622).
    - Tor Browser: make "Print to file" work again, for all locales
      (Closes: #13403, #15024).

  * Build system
    - Fix option passed to cmp: -q is not supported but --quiet is.
      Spotted on feature/buster that's the first branch that exercises
      this code, but there's no reason to fix it only there.

  * Test suite
    - Adapt tests for Tor Launcher 0.2.14.3, i.e. the one shipped with
      Tor Browser 7.5 in Tails 3.5 (Closes: #15064).
    - Add support for creating arbitrarily sized partitions.
    - Add a "Try cloning Tails to a too small partition" scenario
      (regression test for #14622).

    - Upgrade tor to 0.3.1.9-1~d90.stretch+1.

  * Minor improvements
    - Display TopIcons systray on the left of the system menu. This
      fixes #14796 (on Buster, it is displayed in the middle of the
      screen, on the left of the clock) and an annoying UX problem we
      have on Stretch: OpenPGP applet is in the middle of icons that
      share the exact same (modern, GNOME Shell-like) behaviour, which
      is disturbing when opening one of the modern menus and moving
      the mouse left/right to the others, because in the middle one
      icon won't react as expected, and the nice blue bottom border
      continuity is broken.
    - Use the "intel" X.Org driver for integrated graphics in Intel
      i5-7300HQ (Closes: #14990).
    - Enable HashKnownHosts in the OpenSSH client (Closes: #14995).
      Debian enables HashKnownHosts by default via /etc/ssh/ssh_config
      for good reasons, let's not revert to the upstream default.
    - Pin the AppArmor feature set to the Stretch's kernel one. Linux
      4.14 brings new AppArmor mediation features and the policy
      shipped in Stretch may not be ready for it. So let's disable
      these new features to avoid breaking stuff: it's too hard to
      check if all the policy for apps we ship (and that users install
      themselves) has the right rules to cope with these new mediation
      features.

  * Bugfixes
    - Don't delete downloaded debs after install (Closes: #10958).
    - Install xul-ext-ublock-origin from sid to make the dashboard
      work again(Closes: #14993). Thanks to cacahuatl
      <cacahuatl@autistici.org> for the patch!
    - Additional software feature: use debconf priority critical to
      prevent failure when installing packages otherwise requiring
      manual configuration (Closes: #6038)
    - Don't include anything under /lib/live/mount/medium/ in the
      readahead list (Closes: #14964). This fixes the boot time
      regression introduced in Tails 3.3.

  * Build system
    - Display a more helpful error message when the 'origin' remote
      does not point to the official Tails Git repository. This task
      calls git_base_branch_head() which relies on the fact 'origin'
      points to our official repo.
    - Vagrant: never build the wiki early. This has caused several
      issues throughout the years, the lastest instance being the
      reopening of #14933. (Closes: #14933)
    - Install libelf-dev during the time we need it for building DKMS modules.
    - Make the DKMS build hook verbose, and display DKMS modules build
      logs on failure. This hook is a recurring cause of headaches,
      let's simplify debugging.
    - Remove obsolete duplicate build of the virtualbox-guest DKMS
      module.

  * Test suite
    - Log the list of systemd jobs when systemctl is-system-running
      fails (Closes: #14772). Listing the units is not enough: in most
      cases I've seen, is-system-running returns "starting" which
      means the job queue is not empty, and to debug that we need the
      list of jobs.
    - Only support SikuliX; drop support for Sikuli.
    - Disable SPICE clipboard sharing in the guest. It could only mess
      things up, and in fact has confused me by suddenly setting my
      *host's* clipboard to "ATTACK AT DAWN"... :)
    - Decode Base64.decode64 return value appropriately; it returns
      strings encoded in ASCII-8bit.
    - Don't flood the debug logger with the journal contents.
    - Handle case where $vm is undefined during an extremely early
      scenario failure.
    - Allow more time for 'systemctl is-system-running' to
      succeed. (Refs: #14772)
    - Make Sikuli attempt to find replacements on FindFailed by
      employing fuzz, or "lowering the similarity factor". The
      replacements (if found) are saved among the artifacts, and
      serves as potential drop-in-replacements for outdated
      images. The main use case for this is when the font
      configuration in Tails changes, which normally invalidates a
      large part of our images given that our default high similarity
      factor. We also add the `--fuzzy-image-matching` where the
      replacements are used in case of FindFailed, so the tests can
      proceed beyond the first FindFailed. The idea is that a full
      test suite run will produce replacements for potentially *all*
      outdated images.
    - Fix our findAny() vs findfailed_hook. For findAny() it might be
      expected that some images won't be found, so we shouldn't use
      our findfailed_hook, which is about dealing with the situation
      where images need to be updated.
    - Make sure Pidgin's D-Bus policy changes are applied (Closes:
      #15007). Without the HUP there's a race that we sometimes lose.
    - Nump the Unsafe Browser's start page image (Closes: #15006).
    - Hot-plug a 'pcnet' network device instead of 'virtio' on Sid,
      since the latter is not detected on Sid (Closes: #14819).

  * Major changes
    - Upgrade the base system to the Debian Stretch 9.2 point-release
      which gives us tons of bugfixes (Closes: #14714).
    - Install Linux 4.13.0-1 (Closes: #14789).

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Thunderbird to 52.4.0 (Closes: #14963).
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0.10 (Closes: #14940).
    - Upgrade gdk-pixbuf to 2.36.5-2+deb9u1.0tails1 (Closes: #14729).

  * Minor improvements
    - Upgrade to Tor 0.3.1.8-2~d90.stretch+1, a new stable Tor series.
    - tails-documentation: rewrite in Python + use WebKit for display
      instead of the Tor Browser. Since Tor Browser 7.0.8 rendering of
      local pages (like our docs) fail (#14962) so this is probably a
      temporary workaround of that.
    - Replace the Unsafe Browser's warning pages with static,
      pure-HTML versions. This is truly a *temporary* workaround for
      #14962.
    - Update deb.tails.boum.org APT repo key (Closes: #14927)
    - Refresh Tor Browser AppArmor profile patch to apply on top of
      torbrowser-launcher 0.2.8-4's (Closes: #14923).
    - Drop obsolete manual enabling of AppArmor on the kernel
      command-line: it's now enabled by default, so the (Tails -
      Debian) delta gets smaller. :)

  * Bugfixes
    - Install Tails Installer 5.0.2. Fixes:
      * Most notably, fix an issue preventing Tails Installer from
        installing to drives containing a non-Tails partition that
        (obviously) has affected a lot of users. (Closes: #14755).
      * Fix an issue that made the resulting installations unbootable
        if Tails Installer was using a too recent udisks2, e.g. the
        one currently in Debian Sid (Closes: #14809).
      * Code clean-ups (Closes: #14721, #14722, #14723).
    - Fix UEFI boot for USB sticks installed with Universal USB
      Installer (Closes: #8992).
    - Force Tor Browser and Thunderbird to enable accessibility
      support even if no a11y feature is enabled in GNOME yet (Closes:
      #14752, #9260).
    - Mark our custom Desktop launchers as trusted (Closes: #14793,
      Refs: 14584).
    - Add a systemd --user target for bits of GNOME
      EarlyInitialization managed by systemd, and make the keyboard
      layout configuration as part of it. This fixes an issue where
      the layout chosen in the Greeter sometimes wasn't applied in the
      GNOME session (Closes: #12543).

  * Build system
    - auto/{build,clean,config}: run with `set -eu`.
    - Add script to sanity check the website. Currently it ensures all
      blog posts and security advisories have valid Ikiwiki 'meta
      date' directives, since we depend on it for reproducibility.
      Also make passing this sanity check a pre-condition for building
      the website (Closes: #12726, #14767).
    - Abort the ISO build when DKMS modules were not built.
    - Take into account where DKMS modules get installed nowadays.
    - auto/build: normalize file timestamps in wiki/src before
      building. The copy of the website included in the ISO image has
      "Posted" timestamps that apparently match when we cloned the Git
      repository, which affects reproducibility. (Closes: #14933).
    - Fix reproducibility of builds of topic branches that lag behind
      their base branch with the mergebasebranch build option enabled.
      Two otherwise identical merge commits done at different times
      get different IDs, and we happen to embed in the ISO the ID of
      the commit we're building from. (Closes: #14946)

  * Test suite
    - Bump timeout for "I can save the current page as", otherwise the
      "The Tor Browser directory is usable" scenario fails randomly
      when the system is under load.
    - New scenario: installing Tails to an eligible drive with an
      existing filesystem. This is a regression test for #14755.
    - New scenario: re-installing over an existing Tails installation.

    - Deny access to Pidgin's D-Bus service (Closes: #14612). That D-Bus
      interface is dangerous because it allows _any_ application running
      as `amnesia' that has access to the session bus to extract
      basically any information from Pidgin and to reconfigure it:
      https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/DbusHowto
    - Block loading of Bluetooth kernel modules (Closes: #14655) and

    - Shell library: remove now unused functions (Closes: #12685).
    - Add pppoe to the installed packages (Closes #13463). Thanks to geb
      for the patch!
    - Replace syslinux:i386 with syslinux:amd64 in the ISO9660
      filesystem (Closes: #13513).
    - htpdate: fix date header regexp (Closes: #10495). It seems that
      some servers (sometimes) do not send their headers with first
      letter uppercased, hence a lot of failures to find the date in it.
    - Install aufs-dkms from Debian unstable (Closes: #12732).
    - Install vim-tiny instead of vim-nox (Closes: #12687). On Stretch,
      vim-nox started pulling ruby and rake in the ISO. I think vim-tiny
      would be good enough, and would save a few MiB in the ISO. Those
      who use vim more intensively and want another flavour of vim are
      likely to need persistence anyway, and can thus install a more
      featureful vim with the additional software packages feature.
    - Remove gksu and its and gconf's dependencies (Closes: #12738). We
      use pkexec instead of gksudo. gksu is unmaintained, buggy
      (e.g. #12000), and it is the only reason we ship GConf, which we
      want to remove. The other removals are:
      * libgnomevfs2-extra, which was previously used for SSH/FTP support in
        Nautilus, but isn't needed for that any more.
      * libgnome2-bin which provides gnome-open, which isn't required by
        any application in Tails (as far as we know).
      * Configurations and scripts that become obsolete because of these
        removals.
    - Refresh torbrowser-AppArmor-profile.patch to apply cleanly on top
      of torbrowser-launcher 0.2.8-1 (Closes: #14602).
    - Switch from Florence to GNOME's on-screen keyboard (Closes: #8281)
      and incidentally improve accessibility in GTK+ 2.0 and Qt
      applications. This drops Florence and the corresponding GNOME
      Shell extension.
    - Make ./HACKING.mdwn a symlink again (Closes: #13600).
    - Implement refresh-translations --force .
    - Rework how we handle the individual POT files of our applications.
      Comparing the new temporary POT files we generate with the
      temporary POT files we generated last time (if ever, and if we
      did, for which branch?) is not relevant; these POT files are only
      used for merging into a new tails.pot and *that* one is relevant
      to diff against the old tails.pot.

    - Update the Tails signing key. (Closes: #11747)

    - Reproducibility:
      * Ensure reproducible permissions for /etc/hostname (Closes:
        #13623).
      * Patch desktop-file-utils to make its mimeinfo.cache reproducible
        (Closes: #13439).
      * Patch glib2.0 to make its giomodule.cache reproducible (Closes:
        #13441).
      * Patch gdk-pixbuf to make its loaders.cache reproducible (Closes:
        #13442).
      * Patch gtk2.0 and gtk3.0 to make their immodules.cache
        reproducible (Closes: #13440).
      * Remove GCconf: it is a source of non-determinism in the
        filesystem (element order in /var/lib/gconf/defaults/%gconf-tree-*.xml)
        which made Tails unreproducible.
      * Ignore comment updates in POT files, which was a source of
        non-determinism and therefore prevented Tails from being
        reproducible (Closes: #12641).
    - Kernel hardening:
      * Increase mmap randomization to the maximum supported value
        (Closes: #11840). This improves ASLR effectiveness, and makes
        address-space fragmentation a bit worse.
      * Stop explicitly enabling kaslr: it's enabled by default in
        Debian, and this kernel parameter is not supported anymore.
      * Disable kexec, to make our attack surface a bit smaller.

  * Bugfixes
    - Start Nautilus silently in the background when run as root
      (Closes: #12034). Otherwise, after closing Nautilus one gets the
      prompt back only after 5-15 seconds, which confuses users and makes
      our doc more complicated than it should.
    - Ensure pinentry-gtk2 run by Seahorse has the correct $DISPLAY set
      (Closes: #12733).

  * Build system
    - build-manifest-extra-packages.yml: remove squashfs-tools version
      we don't use anymore (Closes: #12684). Apparently our
      apt-get/debootstrap wrapper tricks are enough to detect the
      version of squashfs-tools we actually install and use.
    - Merge base branch earlier, i.e. in auto/config instead of
      auto/build (Closes: #14459). Previously, a given build from a topic
      branch would mix inconsistent versions of things.

    - Fail builds started before SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH (Closes:
      #12352). Such builds would not be reproducible, and this is an
      assumption (a reasonable one!) that we do all over the place, so
      let's fail early. While we're at it, let's fail if
      SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is not set as well. Actually we would fail any
      way if that was the case when reaching our
      99-zzzzzz_reproducible-builds-post-processing build hook, but
      let's fail early.

      Tails to devices smaller than 8 GiB. It'll still allow *upgrading*
      such sticks though.
    - Use 7200 MiB virtual USB drives when we really mean 8 GiB. In the
      real world, USB sticks labeled "8 GB" can be much smaller, so
      Tails Installer will accept anything that's at least 7200 MiB.
      This commit makes us exercise something closer to what happens in
      the real world, and incidentally it'll save storage space on our
      isotesters and improve test suite performance a bit. :)
    - Have unclutter poll every 0.1s instead of continuously. On current
      sid, virt-viewer eats a full CPU and doesn't do its job when
      "unclutter -idle 0" is running.

    - Save more data on test suite failures (Refs: #13541):
      * When Tor fails to bootstrap, save Tor logs and chutney nodes
        data.
      * When Htpdate fails to synchronize the clock, save its logs.
      * Always save the systemd journal on failure.
    - When testing emergency shutdown, wait longer for Tails to tell
      us it has finished wiping the memory. The goal here is to help
      us understand whether (Refs: #13462) is a bug in the emergency
      shutdown feature or in our test suite.
    - Restart nautilus-desktop if Desktop icons are not visible
      (Closes: #13461).
    - Test suite: fix assert_raise() when using ruby-test-unit >=
      3.2.5 (Closes: #14654). ruby-test-unit 3.2.5 added native Java
      exception support for JRuby. The fact we defined the :Java
      constant was enough to trigger that JRuby-specific code, which
      failed.
    - Test suite: take into account that click-to-play is not required
      anymore for WebM videos in Tor Browser (Closes: #14586).

  * Major changes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0.1 (Closes: #12635, #12657).
    - Upgrade to a new snapshot of the Debian and Torproject
      APT repositories: respectively 2017060904 and 2017060903
      (Closes: #12609).

  * Minor improvements
    - Tor Browser: enable Electrolysis (e10s), i.e. render content in a separate
      child process, which will allow to improve performance and security
      further along the road. This required us to drop our branding add-on
      and re-implement its functionality in our Tor Browser wrapper
      (Closes: #12569).
    - Clean obsolete cached packages when using the Additional Software Packages
      feature (Closes: #12400).
    - Improve KeePassX database migration handling (Closes: #12375).
    - Upgrade OnionShare to 0.9.2, from Debian sid as it has been removed
      from Stretch (Closes: #12610).
    - Upgrade Tor to 0.3.0.8 (Closes: #12656).
    - Drop obsolete bilibop patch, that was applied in 0.5.2.1.
    - Include disk space usage information in the WhisperBack bug reports.
    - Reorder technical details in WhisperBack bug reports in way that makes
      more sense when reading them.
    - Convert lc.py to Python 3.
    - Simplify some Python code thanks to subprocess.check_ouput.
    - Set the initial keyboard focus on the "Start Tails" button
      in Tails Greeter (Closes: #12509).
    - Convert Tails Greeter's Debian packaging to current best practices.

  * Bugfixes
    - Fix persistent Thunderbird configuration migration when there is
      a mimeTypes.rdf, that doesn't contain any associations to "icedove"
      or "/usr/bin/iceweasel" (Closes: #12580).
    - Fix persistent browser bookmarks, by generating them from an sqlite dump
      (Closes: #12568).
    - Use the "intel" X.Org driver for Intel Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor
      x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller.
    - `exec' from our Thunderbird wrapper so it doesn't remain running.
    - Tails Installer: don't allow installing on non-removable drives
      (Closes: #10731).
    - Fetch the torbrowser-launcher sources from Debian sid:
      it's been removed from Debian testing.
      Refresh torbrowser-AppArmor-profile.patch accordingly.
    - Unsafe Browser: remove the search bar, that's currently buggy
      and its presence only encourages unsupported usage (Closes: #12573).
    - Unsafe Browser: disable searching in the address bar. It can result
      in leaking hostnames and credentials to the default search
      engine operator (Closes: #12540).
    - Make our omni.ja modifications reproducible (Closes: #12620).
    - Generate the fontconfig cache in a reproducible manner (Closes: #12567).
    - Don't include torrents/rss.html in the ISO. It's not generated
      in a deterministic manner and is worthless in the ISO (Closes: #12619).
    - Improve the language → default keyboard layout mapping
      in Tails Greeter (Closes: #12547).
    - Don't close Tails Greeter's main window when Alt-F4 is pressed
      (Closes: #12462).

  * Test suite
    - Run emergency_shutdown.feature after usb_*.feature, to reduce disk
      space requirements (Closes: #12565).
    - Deal with server messages in Pidgin.
    - Improve Pidgin connectivity check robustness.
    - Flag the Synaptic test as fragile (i.e. #12586).
    - Optimization: only test once that Tails, booted on DVD, eventually
      shuts down after wiping memory.
    - Move tests about the shutdown applet to a dedicated feature,
      as they have nothing to do with Tails' "emergency" shutdown feature.
    - Adapt the network connectivity check to Stretch, and improve it to check
      both link and IP connectivity (Closes: #12602).
    - Apply a fix from upstream Git to mutter, to fix some of its interactions
      with dogtail (Closes: #11718).
    - Mark "Scenario: Watching a WebM video" as fragile (i.e. #10442).

  * Build system
    - Set create_box -e, to make the vagrant box generation a bit more robust.
      (Closes: #12578).
    - Install kernel from backports and Tails build deps before performing
      APT upgrade, to avoid useless bandwidth usage (Closes: #12529).
    - Update submodules after merging the base branch (Closes: #12556).
    - Rakefile: fix date comparison in basebox:clean_old (Closes: #12575).
    - Rakefile: have basebox:clean_old delete baseboxes more than 4 months old
      (refs: #12576).
    - Also check for fuzzy patches' .orig files at the end of our build hooks,
      so we detect any fuzzy patches applied by hooks (Closes: #12617).
    - Remove .orig files for patches we allow to be fuzzy.
    - Don't pre-build the wiki when mergebasebranch is enabled.
      When pre-building the wiki, we modify the PO files which results in a
      conflict from the base branch merge in case it modifies the same
      files, which breaks the build (Closes: #12611).
    - Rakefile: add a task that removes all tails-builder-* libvirt volumes
      (Closes: #12599).

731 732 733 734 735 736 737 738 739 740 741 742 743 744 745 746
  * Major changes
    - Install Thunderbird 1:45.8.0-3+tails2 and handle the Icedove  Thunderbird
      migration, including wrt. persistent data (Closes: #11712, #12242).
      This package also has the patch from
      https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1281959 applied,
      to ease future integration of the Thunderbird AppArmor profile.
      Also, drop the Claws  Icedove migration path.
    - Upgrade to a new snapshot of the Debian and Torproject
      APT repositories: 2017051803 (Closes: #12554).
    - Upgrade Linux packages to the Debian kernel 4.9.0-3, based on
      mainline Linux 4.9.25.
    - Replace the kexec-based memory erasure feature with the Linux kernel's
      memory poisoning (Closes: #12354, #12428). The kexec-based implementation
      was not reliable enough and provided a poor UX. Instead, we now return
      to the initramfs on shutdown and unmount all filesystems there, so their
      content and corresponding caches are erased.
747 748 749 750 751 752
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0a4 based on Firefox 52.1.1esr (Closes:
      #12115, #12464):
      * Unfortunately e10s (multi-process Firefox) is disabled (#12569).
      * Unfortunately persistent bookmarks created for the first time
        in Tails 3.0~rc1 is broken (#12568).
      * Adds exceptions for the extensions Tails installs on top of
753
        the vanilla Tor Browser (Closes: #11419).
754 755 756 757 758
    - Upgrade tor to 0.3.0.7-1 (Closes: #12485) and log both to the
      usual file and the journal (Closes: #12412).
    - Merge the code that makes Tails almost build reproducibly (Refs:
      #5630); we still have issues with the fontconfig cache (Refs:
      #12567).
759 760

  * Minor improvements
761 762 763 764 765
    - Add a HACKING document for new code contributors (Closes:
      #12164).
    - Rename tor-controlport-filter to onion-grater (Closes: #12394)
      and import patches killing the delta against Whonix version
      (Closes: #12173).
766 767 768 769 770 771 772 773 774 775 776 777 778 779 780 781 782 783 784 785 786 787 788 789 790 791 792 793
    - Improve onion-grater; thanks to Joy SN <joysn1980@yahoo.com>
      for the original patches (Closes: #12173):
      · add --listen-interface
      · make stdout/stderr unbuffered to ensure Python exceptions are logged
      · use yaml.safe_load()
    - Improve KeePassX database migration handling (refs: #12375).
    - Electrum: set coin selection strategy to 'Privacy' (Closes: #12177).
    - Allow Onion Circuits to access /proc/pid/status.
    - Make gdm-shell-tails.desktop more similar to the one shipped
      in gnome-shell 3.22.3-3 (refs: #12364).
    - Greeter: have the help window point to updated documentation,
      use WebKit2 instead of the deprecated WebKit, and hide the sidebar
      and banner.
    - Use exec to start KeePassX, i.e. avoid leaving the wrapper running.

  * Bugfixes
    - Install xserver-xorg-legacy, to fix support for various graphics
      adapters that still don't work with rootless X.Org (Closes: #12542).
    - Use the "intel" X.Org driver for Intel Q35 and Intel Atom
      D4xx/D5xx/N4xx/N5xx graphics controllers (refs: #12219).
    - Give UEFI bootloaders upper-case filenames (Closes: #12511).
      Some UEFI firmware, such as the one in the ThinkPad X220, only recognize
      them if they have an upper-case name.
    - KeePassX: enable "Automatically save after each change" again,
      like we did in Tails 2.x (fixes a regression introduced
      in 3.0~beta3).
    - Install packages needed by the "Test speakers" functionality
      (Closes: #12549).
794 795
    - Fix automatic upgrades when one is already applied (Closed:
      #12501).
796
    - When generating the network device blacklist, also blacklist
intrigeri's avatar
intrigeri committed
797
      network drivers from the staging directory (Closes: #12362).
798 799 800
    - htpdate pool: replace www.sarava.org with leap.se. The former
      has been down for a while and it's not clear when it's going to
      be stable again. The latter should be reliable.
801 802 803 804 805 806 807 808 809 810 811 812 813 814 815

  * Test suite
    - Check that dirmngr used the configured keyserver (Closes: #12371).
    - Sanity check that Chutney starts all nodes in the network.
    - Disable the Sandbox option for all nodes, until Tor#21943
      is fixed (Closes: #12512).
    - Wait for the desktop icons to be displayed in the "Tails desktop is ready"
      step. Let's not try interacting with the desktop earlier.
    - Add tests for memory erasure on "normal" shutdown (refs: #12428).
    - Add tests for memory erasure on "emergency" shutdown, and run some
      with network enabled (refs: #12354).
    - Have eject_cdrom run eject(1) like it used to do in the past.
      Otherwise the machine is immediately halted and we cannot test
      whether memory has been erased.
    - Pass mount_USB_drive structured data instead of free-form text.
816 817
    - Test that MAC spoofing and "Disable network" works for
      hotplugged networking devices (Refs: #12362).
818 819 820 821 822 823 824 825 826 827 828 829 830 831 832 833 834 835 836 837 838 839 840 841 842 843 844 845 846 847 848 849 850 851 852 853

  * Build system
    - Generate the Vagrant base box locally as part of the build process,
      instead of downloading it: one less binary blob as input in the build
      process (refs: #12409).
    - Use Vagrant for builds on Jenkins too (Closes: #11972).
    - Tell build script to be more verbose.
    - Respect the 'ARTIFACTS' environment variable if set.
    - Add a second disk to handle the apt-cacher-ng cache, and store
      the corresponding logs in there (Closes: #11979).
    - Use APT snapshots in Vagrant build VMs, create/use a basebox that matches
      the branch/tag/commit being tested, and provision a new VM for each build
      (Closes: #11980, #11981).
    - Ship all build dependencies in the Vagrant basebox, to save some
      time when building ISOs.
    - Make basebox generation compatible with both GnuPG 1.x and 2.x.
    - Set LC_ALL=C, mostly to suppress some warnings.
    - Support forcing VM cleanup before/after build.
    - Add tasks for cleaning up old or all base boxes (refs: #12409).
    - Add build option useful for debugging build failures.
    - Remove obsolete build options.
    - Make auto/scripts/utils.sh more reusable, use it in Rakefile,
      auto/build and setup-tails-builder.
    - Add an option controlling whether to merge the base branch.
    - Add "rake test" target and import logics from puppet-tails'
      wrap_test_suite script.
    - Build Tails as a release simply when HEAD is tagged, i.e. we do not
      require building from a detached head any more.
    - Sanity check compression choice when building a release.
    - Use the host's resolv.conf when building the Vagrant base box.
      Since systemd-networkd is used to manage resolv.conf inside the base box,
      and it hasn't been initialized yet (we are not booting it, just chrooting
      into it) DNS is broken otherwise.
    - Release process: "release" a new base box when freezing.
    - Chown/scp artifacts with a single command to limit overhead and warnings
      noise caused by repeated SSH calls.
854 855 856
    - Add a build options to use a custom CPU model, and custom
      machine type, for reproducibility testing (refs: #12345).
    - Add support for installing Tor Browser nightly builds.

  * Minor improvements
    - Firewall: forbid the _apt user to talk to DNS ports. APT works very well
      without DNS access since we only have Onion APT sources, so let's silence
      the logs.
    - Replace Pidgin's "systray" icon with the guifications plugin
      (Closes: #11741). We're trying to remove as much as we can from
      the set of icons managed by TopIcons extension flavours, in the hope
      it's enough to cancel the problems we've seen with them (#10576, #11737).
    - Disable apt-daily.timer, that can only cause problems in our context
      (Closes: #12390).
    - Do not let pppd-dns manage /etc/resolv.conf (Closes: #12401).
    - Ensure rootless X.Org can access /dev/fb0 when started by GDM.
    - Include the amdgpu module in the initramfs (refs: #12218).
    - Tails Greeter: don't mention 'firewall' anymore (#12382).
    - Tails Greeter: avoid the popover menu for Formats being cut,
      in most cases (Closes: #12249).
    - Tails Greeter: disable the screensaver (Closes: #12370).
    - Tails Greeter: fix behavior when pressing Enter in the language selection
      menu (Closes: #12359).

  * Bugfixes
    - Install speech-dispatcher-espeak-ng to fix the Orca screen reader
      (Closes: #12389).
    - Install xserver-xorg-video-intel and use it on a few graphics adapters
      that are not supported correctly by the modesetting driver (refs: #12219).
      More PCI IDs will be added as new affected hardware is reported.

  * Test suite
    - Run on a Q35 2.8 machine (Closes: #11605).
    - Deprecate xtightvncviewer in favor of tigervnc-viewer.
    - Test the Unsafe Browser in 3 random supported languages, not all.
      This should be enough to identify most future regressions in this area,
      and will be much faster than testing them all.
    - Pidgin tests: switch to an image that doesn't depend on the
      topic of tails@conference.riseup.net.
    - Fix a problematic use of try_for.
    - Fix VM.select_virtual_desktop() and VM.do_focus().
    - Random Gherkin improvements.
    - Fix a focus issue for GNOME Terminal vs. Tails Installer.
    - Adjust to kernel memory poisoning being enabled, which breaks the way
      we used to test memory erasure (refs: #12354):
      · Drop "no memory erasure" and "memory erasure" tests, that can't work
        anymore.
      · Test erasure of memory freed by a killed userspace process.
      · Test that memory poisoning applies to unmounted tmpfs.
      · Test that memory poisoning applies to read and write cache
        for unmounted vfat and LUKS-encrypted ext4.
      · Run erase_memory a bit later, it requires less disk space nowadays.

    - Mount a dedicated filesystem on /var/tmp, to mitigate the
      hardlinks permissions open by the user-tmp abstraction. See
      https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/9949#note-23 for details
      (Closes: #12125).
    - Protect against CVE-2017-2636 by disabling the n-hdlc kernel
      module (Closes: #12315).
    - Ensure /etc/resolv.conf is owned by root:root in the SquashFS.
      lb_chroot_resolv will "cp -a" it from the source tree, so it
      inherits its ownership from the whoever cloned the Git
      repository. This has two problems. First, this results in unsafe
      permissions on this file (e.g. a Vagrant build results in the
      'amnesia' user having write access to it).

  * Minor improvements
    - Don't add the live user to the "audio" group. This should not be
      needed on a modern Linux desktop system anymore (Closes:
      #12209).
    - Install virtualbox-* 5.1.14-dfsg-3~bpo8+1 from our custom APT
      repository (Closes: #12307).
    - Install virtualbox-guest-* from sid. The version currently in
      jessie-backports is not compatible with Linux 4.9, and there's
      basically no chance that it gets updated (the maintainer asked
      for them to be *removed* from jessie-backports) (Closes:
      #12298).
    - Pull ttdnsd from our custom APT repository. It's gone from the
      TorProject one. We removed ttdnsd on feature/stretch already, so
      we'll need to pull it from our custom APT repository only for
      the next 3 months.
    - Clean up libdvd-pkg build files, again.  This cleanup operation
      was mistakenly removed in commit c4e8744 (Closes: #11273).
    - Install gnome-sound-recorder (Closes #10950). Thanks to Austin
      English <austinenglish@gmail.com> for the patch!
    - Stop restarting tor if bootstrapping stalls. It seems tor might
      have fixed the issues we used (see: #10238, #9516) to experience
      with the bootstrap process stalling and requiring a restart to
      kickstart it (Closes: #12411).
    - tor.sh: communicate via the UNIX socket instead of TCP port.
      This makes the library usable when run inside systemd units that
      have `PrivateNetwork=yes` set.
    - Get tor's bootstrap progress via GETINFO instead of log
      grep:ing.

    - Retry curl and APT operations up to 20 times to make the ISO
      build more robust wrt. unreliable Internet connectivity. Thanks
      to Arnaud <arnaud@preev.io> for the patch!
    - Install ikiwiki from jessie-backports, instead of our patched
      one. Our changes were merged in 3.20161219, and jessie-backports
      now has 3.20170111~bpo8+1 (Closes: #12051).
    - Fix FTBFS when installing a .deb via config/chroot_local-packages
      by being more flexible when matching local packages in the apt
      list file (Closes: #12374). Thanks to Arnaud <arnaud@preev.io>

  * Test suite
    - Try possible fix for #11508. IPv6Packet:s' source is accessed by
      `.ipv6_saddr`, not `ip_saddr` (that's for IPv4Packet). So, let's
      just try and see which one of the two each packet has, because
      one of them must be there! Also, given that UDPPacket can be
      either IPv4 or IPv6 it seems safest to try to parse each packet
      as IPv6Packet first -- that way we keep looking at transport
      layer protocols for IPv4 only, and treat everything IPv6 as the
      same, which makes sense, since we should block all IPv6, so
      everything should be treated the same at all times.
    - Changes due to #12411:
      * Raise special exception for Tor bootstrap failures.
      * Remove obsolete debug logging now that we don't log anything
        interesting for `restart-tor` any more.

      (Closes: #12343).
    - Protect against CVE-2017-2636 by disabling the n-hdlc kernel module
      (Closes: #12315).

  * Minor improvements
    - Reintroduce the X11 guest utilities for VirtualBox (regression
      introduced in 3.0~beta2).
    - Upgrade X.Org server and the modesetting driver (hopefully helps
      fixing #12219).
    - Automate the migration from KeePassX databases generated on Tails 2.x
      to the format required by KeePassX 2.0.x (Closes: #10956, #12369).
    - Add keyboard shortcuts in Tails Greeter (Closes: #12186, #12063).
    - Install dbus-user-session (regression introduced in 3.0~beta2).
    - Manage temporary directories in a declarative way (tmpfiles.d).
    - Replace references to the /var/run compatibility symlink
      with the canonical /run.
    - Update our Torbirdy patchset to the latest one sent upstream.
    - Install mesa-utils, so that Qt 5 can detect whether software based
      rendering is needed.
    - Have Tails Greeter honor the "debug" kernel command-line option,
      for easier debugging (Closes: #12373).
    - Refactor Tails Greeter to reduce code duplication (Closes: #12247).

  * Bugfixes
    - Fix sizing of zenity dialogs (Closes: #12313, regression introduced
      in 3.0~alpha1).
    - Fix confusing, spurious error messages in command-line applications
      wrapped with torsocks:
      · Ship a /etc/mailname file with content "localhost".
        Otherwise something (Git? libc6?) tries to resolve the "amnesia" host
        name, which fails, and a confusing error message is displayed
        (Closes: #12205, regression introduced in 3.0~alpha1).
      · Have torsocks allow UDP connections to the loopback interface,
        with AllowOutboundLocalhost 2 (Closes: #11736).

  * Test suite
    - Improve debugging info logging for PacketFu parsing issues,
      and implement a plausible fix (refs: #11508).
    - Try to make "double-click on desktop launcher" more reliable.
    - Fix selection of ISO in Tails Installer.
    - Re-enable the GnuPG tests that require a keyserver, pointing them
      to an Onion service we run on Chutney, that redirects all TCP traffic
      to a real, clearnet keyserver (Closes: #12211).
    - Implement a workaround for checking the configured keyserver in GnuPG,
      until a better fix is implemented (refs: #12371).
    - Fix the "Report an Error launcher" scenario in German.

  * Build system
    - Retry curl and APT operations up to 20 times to make the ISO build
      more robust wrt. unreliable Internet connectivity.
      Thanks to Arnaud <arnaud@preev.io> for the patch!
    - Install ikiwiki from jessie-backports, instead of our patched one

    - Rakefile: fix TAILS_OFFLINE_BUILD exported variable name.
    - Adjust apt-mirror to support branches based on feature/stretch
      that don't use frozen APT snapshots.

    - Fix CVE-2017-6074 (local root privilege escalation) by disabling
      the 'dccp' module. (Closes: #12280)
    - Disable kernel modules for some uncommon network protocol. These
      are the ones recommended by CIS. (Part of: #6457)
    - Disable modules we blacklist for security reasons. Blacklisted
      (via `blacklist MODULENAME`) modules are only blocked from being
      loaded during the boot process, but are still loadable with an
      explicit `modprobe MODULENAME`, and (worse!) via kernel module
      auto-loading.
    - Upgrade linux-image-4.8.0-0.bpo.2-686-unsigned to 4.8.15-2~bpo8+2.
    - Upgrade bind9 to 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u10.

  * Minor improvements
    - import-translations: also import PO files for French from
      Transifex. The translation team for French switched to Transifex
      even for our custom programs:
      https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-l10n/2016-November/004312.html
    - Notify the user, if running on a 32-bit processor, that it won't
      be supported in Tails 3.0 anymore. (Closes: #12193)
    - Notify I2P users that I2P will be removed in Tails
      2.12. (Closes: #12271)

  * Bugfixes
    - Disable -proposed-updates at boot time. If a Debian point
      release happens right after a freeze but we have decided to
      enable it before the freeze to get (at least most of) it, then
      we get in the situation where -proposed-updates is enabled in
      the final release, which we don't want. We only want it enabled
      at build time. (Closes: #12169)
    - Ferm: Use the variable when referring to the Live user. The
      firewall will fail to start during early boot otherwise since
      the "amnesia" user hasn't been created yet. (Closes: #12208)
    - Tor Browser: Don't show offline warning when opening local
      documentation. (Closes: #12269)
    - tails-virt-notify-user: use the tails-documentation helper to
      improve UX when one is not connected to Tor yet, and display
      localized doc when available.
    - Fix rare issue causing automatic upgrades to not apply properly
      (Closes: #8449, and hopefully #11839 as well):
      * Allow the tails-install-iuk user to run "/usr/bin/nocache
        /bin/cp *" as root.
      * Install tails-iuk 2.8, which will use nocache for various file
        operations, and sync writes to the installation medium.
    - Install Linux 4.8.15 to prevent GNOME from freezing with Intel
      GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics. (Closes: #12217, but fixes tons
      of other small bugs)

  * Build system
    - Add 'offline' option, making it possible to build Tails offline
      (if all needed resources are present in your cache). (Closes:
      #12272)

  * Test suite
    - Encapsulate exec_helper's class to not "pollute" the global
      namespace with all our helpers. This is an example of how we can
      work towards #9030.
    - Extend remote shell with *safe* file operations. Now we can
      read/write/append *any* characters without worrying that it will
      do crazy things by being passed through the shell, as was the
      case before.  This commit also:
      * adds some better reporting of errors happening on the server
        side by communicating back the exception thrown.
      * removes the `user` parameter from the VM.file_* methods. They
        were not used, any way, and simply do not feel like they
        fit. I think the only reason we had it initially was because
        it was implemented via the command interface, where a user
        concept makes a lot of sense.
    - debug_log() Dogtail script content on failure.
    - Add a very precise timestamp to each debug_log().
    - Make robust_notification_wait() ensure the applet is closed. In
      robust_notification_wait() when we close the notification
      applet, other windows may change position, creating a racy
      situation for any immediately following action aimed at one such
      window. (Closes: #10381)
    - Fix I2P's Pidgin test. The initial conversation (that determines
      the title of the conversation window) is now made by a different
      IRC service than before.
    - Use lossless compression for the VNC viewer with --view.
      Otherwise the VNC viewer is not a good place to extract test
      suite images from, at least with xtigervncviewer.
    - Add optional pause() notification feature to the test suite. It
      will run a user-configurable arbitrary shell command when
      pause() is called, e.g. on failure when --interactive-debugging
      is used. This is pretty useful when multitasking with long test
      suite runs, so you immediately are notified when a test fails
      (or when you reached a temporary pause() breakpoint).  (Closes:
      #12175)
    - Add the possibility to run Python code in a persistent session
      in the remote shell and use this for Dogtail to significantly
      improve its performance by saving state and reusing it between
      commands. This changes the semantics of the creation of Dogtail
      objects. Previously they just created the code that then would
      be run once an actionable method was called (.wait, .click etc),
      but now it works like in Python, that Dogtail will try to find
      the graphical element upon object creation. (Closes: #12059)
    - Test that we don't ship any -proposed-updates APT sources.
      (Closes: #12169)
    - Make force_new_tor_circuit() respect NEWNYM rate limiting.
    - Add retry magic for lost click when opening Tails' documentation
      from the desktop launcher. (Closes: #12131)

    - Upgrade to a new snapshot (2017013002) of the Debian and Torproject
      APT repositories.
    - Upgrade Linux to 4.9.0-1.

  * Security fixes
    - Reject packets sent on the LAN to the NetBIOS name service
      (Closes: #11944).
    - Seahorse: use the Tor OnionBalance hidden service pool,
      which provides transport encryption and authentication of the keyserver.

  * Minor improvements
    - Include adwaita-qt* and enable it by default, so that Qt applications
      integrate nicely into a GNOME environment (Closes: #11790).
    - Add support for the TREZOR hardware wallet in Electrum (Closes: #10964).
    - AppArmor: allow all programs to read /etc/tor/torsocks.conf via
      abstractions/base, to ease maintenance.
    - Don't (try to) bind the Power button to the shutdown action
      (Closes: #12004).
    - Enable natural scrolling (Closes: #11969).
    - Update uBlock Origin patterns + settings file.
    - live-persist: remove Squeeze → Wheezy migration code.
    - Update pre-existing persistent GnuPG configuration on login
      (Closes: #12201).
    - Upgrader: use the alpha channel when the next version will be an
      alpha, beta, or RC. This will allow users of 3.0~betaN to upgrade to
      the next beta or RC, without having to type any command-line
      (Closes: #12206).

  * Bugfixes
    - Fix "upgrade from ISO" when run from a 32-bit system,
      such as Tails 2.x (Closes: #11873).
