Update changelog for 4.3.

parent 4904a1fd
tails (4.3) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy entry for next release.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 9.0.5-build2 (Closes: #17469).
- Update Linux kernel to linux-image-5.4.0-3-amd64, currently at
5.4.13-1 (Closes: #17443).
- Upgrade Thunderbird to 1:68.4.1-1~deb10u1
* Bugfixes
- live-persist: don't backup empty configuration files (Closes:
#17112). In some cases, the previous code would overwrite a
non-empty backup file with an empty one, making it harder to
recover from the already painful #10976.
- create-usb-image-from-iso: Run syslinux within proper chroot
(Closes: #17179). Previously we ran syslinux from the host,
which can lead to bugs if its versions differs from the one
inside the chroot (which is what Tails will use later). Thanks
to Johan Blåbäck for the patch!
- Tails Upgrader: Fix progress bar not pulsating and hide useless
OK button (Closes: #16603).
* Minor improvements and updates
- Upgrade tor to (Closes: #17059).
- Install the trezor package, which adds a command-line (only)
tool for managing Trezor devices (Closes: #17463). Thanks to
Pavol Rusnak for the patch!
- As a consequence of the Linux kernel upgrade we also:
* Upgrade aufs to 5.4.3 20200127.
* Install VirtualBox guest tools and kernel modules from sid.

* Build system
- Upgrade snapshot of the Debian archive to 2020020302, including
the 10.3 point release of Debian Buster (Closes: #17458).
- Add opt-in caching of the wiki (Closes: #15342).
- Use mksquashfs' -no-exports option even when the fastcomp build
option is set. "fastcomp" is supposed to only tweak SquashFS
compression settings, but so far it was also disabling the
-no-exports option that we set for our release builds.
- Drop a bunch of packages installed for ikiwiki for various
(obsoloete) resons:
* libfile-chdir-perl, libyaml-perl and libxml-simple-perl which
was needed back when we built our own ikiwiki from Git a
looong time ago.
* libtext-multimarkdown-perl used multimarkdown ikiwiki which
its doubtful we ever will use.
* libhtml-scrubber-perl, libhtml-template-perl,
libhtml-parser-perl, libyaml-libyaml-perl and liburi-perl
which are already installed as ikiwiki dependencies.
- Install libimage-magick-perl instead of the perlmagick
transitional package.
- Don't install obsolete dependencies whois and eatmydata.
- Consistently validate individual build options as we parse them.
This is consistent with how we handled "fastcomp" already. Only
compatibility checks between multiple build options really need
to happen later, once we've parsed all build options.
- Remove 5 years old transition code
- Fully provision the Vagrant box every time it starts, and
partially re-provision it for every build.
- Behave correctly when disabling a previously set "offline" or
"vmproxy+extproxy" build option. Previously, setting one of
these build options *once* would taint the Vagrant box forever
with the resulting apt-cacher-ng configuration.
- Shrink the apt-cacher-ng cache after a successful build too
(Closes: #17288).
- Set up infrastructure to retrieve log file from the VM even on
build failure (Closes: #7749).
- Always build from a fresh Git clone.
- Set the permissions that Vagrant needs inside the source tree
(Closes: #11411, #16607, #17289).
* Test suite
- Remove Seahorse key synchronization scenarios. These 2 scenarios
never pass due to #17169, so currently:
* They don't teach us anything new → no benefit.
* Every time a developer looks at test suite results,
they need to filter out this known problem, which takes time
and trains us to ignore problems.
