releasing version 0.4

parent 44c75967
amnesia (0.4) unstable; urgency=low
* We now only build and ship "Hybrid" ISO images, which can be either
burnt on CD-ROM or dd'd to a USB stick or hard disk.
* l10n: we now build and ship multilingual images; initially supported
(or rather wanna-be-supported) languages are: ar, zh, de, en, fr, it,
pt, es
- install Iceweasel's and OpenOffice.org's l10n packages for every
supported language
- stop installing localized help for OpenOffice.org, we can't afford it
for enough languages
- when possible, Iceweasel's homepage and default search engine are localized
- added Iceweasel's "any language" Scroogle SSL search engine
- when the documentation icon is clicked, display the local wiki in
currently used language, if available
- the Nautilus wipe script is now translatable
- added gnome-keyboard-applet to the Gnome panel
* software
- replaced Icedove with claws mail, in a bit rough way; see
https://amnesia.boum.org/todo/replace_icedove_with_claws/ for best
practices and configuration advices
- virtual keyboard: install onBoard instead of kvkbd
- Tor controller: install Vidalia instead of TorK
- install only chosen parts of Gnome, rather than gnome-desktop-environment
- do not install xdialog, which is unused and not in Squeeze
- stop installing grub as it breaks Squeeze builds (see Debian bug #467620)
- install live-helper from snapshots repository into the Live image
* Iceweasel
- do not install the NoScript extension anymore: it is not strictly
necessary but bloodily annoying
* Pidgin
- use "guest" as realname and username as well, so as to avoid
advertising amnesia usage
* Provide WhisperBack 1.2 for anonymous, GnuPG-encrypted bug reporting.
- added dependency on python-gnutls
- install the SMTP hidden relay's certificate
* amnesia-security-check: new program that tells users that the amnesia
version they are running is affected by security flaws, and which ones
they are; this program is run at Gnome session startup, after sleeping
2 minutes to let Tor a chance to initialize.
Technical details:
- Perl
- uses the Desktop Notifications framework
- fetches the security atom feed from the wiki
- verifies the server certificate against its known CA
- tries fetching the localized feed; if it fails, fetch the default
(English) feed
* live-initramfs: new custom package built from our own live-initramfs
Git repository (commit 40e957c4b89099e06421)
- at shutdown time, ask the user to unplug the CD / USB stick, then run
smem, wait for it to finish, then attempt to immediately halt
* build system
- bumped dependency on live-helper to >= 2.0a6 and adapted our config
- generate hybrid ISO images by default, when installed syslinux is
recent enough
- stop trying to support building several images in a row, it is still
broken and less needed now that we ship hybrid ISO images
- scripts/config: specify distribution when initializing defaults
- updated Debian Live APT repository's signing key
* PowerPC
- disable virtualbox packages installing and module building on !i386
&& !amd64, as PowerPC is not a supported guest architecture
- built and imported tor_0.2.1.20-1~~lenny+1_powerpc.deb
* Squeeze
- rough beginnings of a scratch Squeeze branch, currently unsupported
- install gobby-infinote
* misc
- updated GnuPG key with up-to-date signatures
- more improvements on boot time from CD
- enhanced the wipe in Nautilus UI (now asks for confirmation and
reports success or failure)
- removed the "restart Tor" launcher from the Gnome panel

Highlighted changes:
* We now ship "Hybrid" ISO images, which can be either

* We now ship multilingual ISO images; initially supported (or rather
wanna-be-supported) languages are: ar, zh, de, en, fr, it, pt, es.

[[todo/replace_icedove_with_claws]] for best practices and
configuration advices.
* Virtual keyboard: kvkbd was replaced with onBoard.
* Tor controller: TorK was replaced with Vidalia.
* Anonymous, GnuPG-encrypted bug reporting is now made easy, thanks to

* Users are now warned at runtime when the amnesia version they are
running is affected by security flaws, and which ones they are.
