    - 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).

  * 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.

    - Upgrade to Thunderbird 52.3.0 (Closes: #12639).
    - 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
      block Bluetooth devices with rfkill (Closes: #14655).
    - Add localhost.localdomain to the hosts file to prevent loopback
      leaks to Tor circuits (Closes: #13574). Thanks to tailshark for
      the patch!

  * Minor improvements

    - Upgrade to Tails Installer 5.0.1 (Closes: #8859, #8860, #12707). This

      version gets rid of the splash screen, detects when Tails is already
      installed on the target device (and then proposes to upgrade),
257
258
      and generally improves the UX. It also increases the Tails partition
      size and refuses to install to devices smaller than 8 GB.

    - 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.
304
    - Update the Tails signing key. (Closes: #11747)

      * 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.

        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).

      sometimes fails to tell the session manager about the correct
      SSH_AUTH_SOCK, and thus GNOME Terminal hasn't this variable set
      and any ssh process started in there won't use the (perfectly
      working) SSH agent (Closes: #12481).

  * 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).

      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.

    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0a4 based on Firefox 52.1.1esr (Closes:

      * Unfortunately persistent bookmarks created for the first time
        in Tails 3.0~rc1 is broken (#12568).

    - Merge the code that makes Tails almost build reproducibly (Refs:

      · 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).
629

    - Fix automatic upgrades when one is already applied (Closed:
      #12501).

  * 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.

  * 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.
689
690
691
    - 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.

      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: #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
      (Closes: #12051).
    - Clean up libdvd-pkg build files, again (Closes: #11273).
    - 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.

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.5.1 based on Firefox 45.8. (Closes:
      #12283)
    - 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.
    - Upgrade imagemagick to 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u7.
    - Upgrade libevent-2.0-5 to 2.0.21-stable-2+deb8u1.
    - Upgrade libgd3 to 2.1.0-5+deb8u9.
    - Upgrade libjasper1 to 1.900.1-debian1-2.4+deb8u2.
    - Upgrade liblcms2-2 to 2.6-3+deb8u1.
    - Upgrade libxpm4 to 1:3.5.12-0+deb8u1.
    - Upgrade login to 1:4.2-3+deb8u3.
    - Upgrade ntfs-3g to 1:2014.2.15AR.2-1+deb8u3.
    - Upgrade openjdk-7-jre to 7u121-2.6.8-2~deb8u1.
    - Upgrade openssl to 1.0.1t-1+deb8u6.
    - Upgrade tcpdump to 4.9.0-1~deb8u1.
    - Upgrade vim to 2:7.4.488-7+deb8u2.
    - Upgrade libreoffice to 1:4.3.3-2+deb8u6.

  * 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)

  * Major new features and changes
    - Redesigned Tails Greeter.
    - 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).
    - Fix ability to read videos over HTTPS with Totem (Closes: #11963).
    - Re-introduce default directories in $HOME, which fixes
      Spice file transfers (Closes: #11968).
    - Re-enable tap-to-click (Closes: #11993).
    - Lower systemd's DefaultTimeoutStopSec, to get rid of a long delay
      before memory wiping starts. This also prevents shutdown from ever
      being blocked by any buggy service that takes a while to stop
      (Closes: #12061).
    - Drop Jessie APT sources.
    - Re-add VirtualBox DKMS modules.
    - Fix GnuPG communication with keyservers, by using the Tor OnionBalance
      hidden service pool (Closes: #12202).
    - Fix Enigmail communication with keyservers, by teaching Torbirdy
      not to break it (Closes: #11948):
      · Patch Torbirdy to allow not breaking keyserver communication when
        using GnuPG v2.1+, and to use a better default keyserver.
      · Torbirdy: enable the new behaviour made possible by the aforementioned
        patch (extensions.enigmail.already_torified).
      · Torbirdy: drop our custom keyserver configuration, since the
        aforementioned patch makes it the default.

  * Removed features
    - Don't install gnome-system-log anymore (Closes: #12133).
      It's deprecated in GNOME, and mostly useless anyway as it's not
      Journal-aware. It's replacement (gnome-logs) is not usable
      enough in the context of Tails, and most users who can read logs
      should manage to do it with journalctl, so don't install it either.
    - Drop multiarch handling: Tails 3.0 will be amd64-only (Closes: #11961).

  * Build system
    - Disable eatmydata usage and caching: in current Stretch, debootstrap fails
      if we use eatmydata + the operation mode picked by live-build when caching
      is enabled (Closes: #12052).
    - Bump disk space (and memory for in-RAM builds) requirements.
    - Follow replacement of python-reportbug with python3-reportbug.
    - Don't try to deinstall packages that are unknown on Stretch.
    - Move AppArmor aliases to a dedicated file, and include it.
      This will avoid maintaining these settings as a patch.
    - Don't attempt to remove the usr.bin.chromium-browser AppArmor profile:
      it's not shipped in Debian anymore.

  * Test suite
    - Add optional pause() notification (Closes: #12175).
    - Make the remote shell's file operations robust (Closes: #11887).
    - Update a number of test cases for Stretch, sometimes by converting
      them to Dogtail.
    - Drop usage and tests of read-only persistence.
      We won't have this option anymore, and it's not even sure we'll
      reintroduce it (Refs: #12093, Closes: #12055).
    - Adjust CONFIGURED_KEYSERVER_HOSTNAME to match current settings.
    - Test suite: clean up disks between features.

  * Adjustments for Debian 9 (Stretch) with no or very little user-visible impact
    - Adjust dpkg-divert path: it has moved.
    - Replace xfonts-wqy with fonts-wqy-microhei + fonts-wqy-zenhei.
      The former was removed from Debian testing, and the latter are recommended
      by task-chinese-s-desktop and task-chinese-t-desktop.
    - Install virtualbox* from sid.
      It was removed from testing due to https://bugs.debian.org/794466.
    - Drop deprecated settings from org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power.
    - Update settings name in org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/touchpad, and drop
      deprecated ones.
    - Adjust to changed Liferea's .desktop filename.
    - Also torify Liferea when started via its (new) D-Bus service.
    - Install hunspell-pt-br instead of hunspell-pt-pt.
      Tor Browser 6.5 moved from pt-PT to pt-BR, which is fine vs
      spellcheckers in Jessie since its hunspell-pt provides both -pt and
      -br, but in Stretch they are separate packages.
    - AppArmor: adjust usr.sbin.cupsd profile so it loads successfully
      (Closes: #12116).
    - Migrate from netstat to ss.
    - Update extensions.enigmail.configuredVersion.
    - Remove the jessie-proposed-updates APT sources.

  * Major new features and changes
    - Upgrade the Linux kernel to 4.8.0-0.bpo.2 (Closes: #11886).
    - Install OnionShare from jessie-backports. Also install
      python3-stem from jessie-backports to allow the use of ephemeral
      onion services (Closes: #7870).
    - Completely rewrite tor-controlport-filter. Now we can safely
      support OnionShare, Tor Browser's per-tab circuit view and
      similar.
      * Port to python3.
      * Handle multiple sessions simultaneously.
      * Separate data (filters) from code.
      * Use python3-stem to allow our filter to be a lot more
        oblivious of the control language (Closes: #6788).
      * Allow restricting STREAM events to only those generated by the
        subscribed client application.
      * Allow rewriting commands and responses arbitrarily.
      * Make tor-controlport-filter reusable for others by e.g. making
        it possible to pass the listen port, and Tor control
        cookie/socket paths as arguments (Closes: #6742). We hear
        Whonix plan to use it! :)

  * Minor improvements
    - Enable and use the Debian Jessie proposed-updates APT
      repository, anticipating on the Jessie 8.7 point-release
      (Closes: #12124).
    - Enable the per-tab circuit view in Tor Browser (Closes: #9365).
    - Change syslinux menu entries from "Live" to "Tails" (Closes:
      #11975). Also replace the confusing "failsafe" wording with
      "Troubleshooting Mode" (Closes: #11365).
    - Make OnionCircuits use the filtered control port (Closes:
      #9001).
    - Make  tor-launcher use the filtered control port.
    - Run OnionCircuits directly as the Live user, instead of a
      separate user. This will make it compatible with the Orca screen
      reader (Closes: #11197).
    - Run tor-controlport-filter on port 9051, and the unfiltered one
      on 9052. This simplifies client configurations and assumptions
      made in many applications that use Tor's ControlPort. It's the
      exception that we connect to the unfiltered version, so this
      seems like the more sane approach.
    - Remove tor-arm (Nyx) (Closes: #9811).
    - Remove AddTrust_External_Root.pem from our website CA bundle. We
      now only use Let's Encrypt (Closes: #11811).
    - Configure APT to use Debian's Onion services instead of the
      clearnet ones (Closes: #11556).
    - Replaced AdBlock Plus with uBlock Origin (Closes: #9833). This
      incidentally also makes our filter lists lighter by
      de-duplicating common patterns among the EasyList filters
      (Closes: #6908). Thanks to spriver for this first major code
      contribution!
    - Install OpenPGP Applet 1.0 (and libgtk3-simplelist-perl) from
      Jessie backports (Closes: #11899).
    - Add support for exFAT (Closes: #9659).
    - Disable unprivileged BPF. Since upgrading to kernel 4.6,
      unprivileged users can use the bpf() syscall, which is a
      security concern, even with JIT disabled. So we disable that.
      This feature wasn't available before Linux 4.6, so disabling it
      should not cause any regressions (Closes: #11827).
    - Add and enable AppArmor profiles for OnionCircuits and OnoinShare.
    - Raise the maximum number of loop devices to 32 (Closes: #12065).
    - Drop kernel.dmesg_restrict customization: it's enabled by
      default since 4.8.4-1~exp1 (Closes: #11886).
1272
    - Upgrade Electrum to 2.7.9-1.

    - Make the Electrum proxy configuration apply after upgrading to
      2.7.9-1. These changes incidentally makes Electrum behave nicer:
      users will now not be presented the network configuration part
      of the setup wizard -- a server will be picked randomly, and
      Electrum will auto-connect. The automated test suite is adjusted
      accordingly (Closes: #12140).
    - Remove unused Browser profile seed file localstore.rdf which was
      made obsolete in Firefox 34.
    - Tor Browser: switch from pt-PT to pt-BR langpack. The upstream
      Tor Browser did this in version 6.5 (Refs: #12159).

  * Bugfixes
    - Tails Greeter:
      * use gdm-password instead of gdm-autologin, to fix switching to
        the VT where the desktop session lives on Stretch (Closes:
        #11694)
      * Fix more options scrolledwindow size in Stretch (Closes:
        #11919)
    - Tails Installer: remove unused code warning about missing
      extlinux in Tails Installer (Closes: #11196).
    - Update APT pinning to cover all binary packages built from
      src:mesa so we ensure installing mesa from jessie-backports
      (Closes: #11853).
    - Install xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu. This should help supporting
      newer AMD graphics adapters. (Closes #11850)
    - Fix firewall startup during early boot, by referring to the
      "amnesia" user via its UID (Closes: #7018).
    - Include all amd64-microcodes.

    - refresh-translations: ignore
      config/chroot_local-includes/usr/share/doc/tails/website/.
      Otherwise, if the website has been built already, PO tools
      complain that there are files with translatable strings in
      there, which are not listed in POTFILES.in.
    - Make uBlock Origin's button appear on first run. Otherwise it
      will only appear on browser runs after the first one. This bug
      also affected Adblock Plus (Closes: #12145).

  * Build system
    - Be more careful when unmounting the tmpfs used as workspace
      during builds, fixing an issue that made Jenkins' ISO builders
      prone to failures (Closes: #12009).
    - Upgrade the Vagrant basebox to 20170105. The only big change is
      that we now install the backported kernel in the builder VM, to
      make building possible on Debian Sid (Closes: #12081).

    - Ensure the VirtualBox guest DKMS modules are built for the
      kernel we want them for. In some situations, depending on the
      version of the running kernel, the modules would not be built
      for the 686 kernel, which is the one that needs the VirtualBox
      guest modules.  This commit ensures the VirtualBox guest modules
      are built and installed regardless of the how the build
      environment looks like (Closes: #12139).

  * Test suite
    - Replace the filesystem shares support with a helper for easily
      sharing files from the host to the guest using virtual disks
      (Closes: #5571).
    - Do not test sending email when testing POP3. We cannot clean
      that email up (easily) since when we use POP3 deletions won't
      affect the remote inbox, only our local one, resulting in the
      quota being reached eventually (Closes: #12006).
    - Have APT tests configure APT to use non-onion sources. Our test
      suite uses Chutney to create a virtual, private Tor network, and
      thus doesn't support connections to Onion services running in
      the real Tor network (Refs: #11556).
    - Allow connections to Tor's control port during stream isolation
      tests, but only for those applications where we expect that.

    - Fix Electrum tests after upgrading to 2.7.9-1.
    - Make encryption.feature pass for Tails 2.10~rc1.
    - Adapt tests after the Donation campaign was disabled (Refs:
      #12134).
    - Fix 'The "Tails documentation" link on the Desktop works'
      scenario. The TailsOfflineDocHomepage.png image doesn't match
      what we see any more (I have no clue why), so let's use Dogtail
      and solve this once and for all, hopefully.
    - Work around Tails freezing during memory wiping. These
      workarounds should be reverted once #11786 is fixed
      properly. (Refs: #10776, #11786)
    - Support both xtigervncviewer and xtightvncviewer for --view.
      xtightvncviewer is a transitional package in Sid, which depends
      on tigervnc-viewer (which ships xtigervncviewer), so by keeping
      the dep and supporting both binaries, --view will work on both
      Sid and Jessie (Closes: #12129).
    - Test suite: bump image after upgrading to Tor Browser 6.5 (Refs:
      #12159).
    - Add debugging info for when PacketFu misbehaves, and be more
      careful when to save pcap artifacts (Refs: #11508).

    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.0.8 based on Firefox 45.6. If you pay
      close attention you'll see that we import -build1 but there was
      a -build2. The only change is Tor Button 1.9.5.13 which makes
      some changes to the donation campaign banner in `about:tor`,
      which we safely can skip. (Closes: #12028)

  * Minor improvements
    - Switch to DuckDuckGo as the default search engine in the tor
      Browser. This is what Tor Browser has, and Disconnect.me (the
      previous default) has been re-directing to DDG for some time,
      which has been confusing users. In addition, we localize the DDG
      user interface for the locales with availablelangpacks. (Closes:
      #11913)
    - Improve the display name for the Wikipedia search plugin.
    - Enable contrib and non-free for our own APT repos.
    - Upgrade Tor to 0.2.8.10. (Closes: #12015)
    - Upgrade obfs4proxy to 0.0.7-1~tpo1.

  * Bugfixes
    - AppArmor Totem profile: add permissions needed to avoid warning
      on startup. (Closes: #11984)
    - Upgrade the VirtualBox Guest additions and modules to version
      5.1.8. This should prevent Xorg from crashing unless the video
      memory for the VMs are significantly bumped. (Closes: #11965)
      Users will still have to enable I/O APIC due to a bug in Linux.
    - Drop unwanted search plugins from the Tor Browser langpacks.
      Otherwise they are only removed from English locales. Note that
      the langpacks contain copies of the English plugins, not
      localized versions, so we actually lose nothing.

  * Test suite
    - Add support for SikuliX, which recently hit Debian Unstable,
      while still supporting Sikuli for Jessie users. (Closes: #11991)
    - Fix some instances where we were trying to use the mouse outside
      of the Sikuli screen.
    - Use "TorBirdy" instead of "amnesia branding" as the "anchor"
      addon.  I.e. the addon that we use to find the other ones. The
      "amnesia branding" addon has been removed, so we must use
      something else. (Fixup: #11906)
    - Dogtailify "the support documentation page opens in Tor Browser"
      step. We previously relied on Sikuli, and the image was made
      outdated thanks to our donation campaign. No more! (Closes:
      #11911)
    - Resolve dl.amnesia.boum.org instead of picking a static address.
      Just hours after updating the dustri.org IP address, its web
      server went down => test suite failures. Let's make this test as
      robust as actually downloading the Tails ISO image -- if that
      fails, we probably have more serious problems on our hands than
      a failing test suite. (Closes: #11960)
    - Switch MAT scenario from testing PDFs to PNGs. Also add
      anti-test and test using using a tool *different* from MAT, the
      tool being tested here. (Closes: #11901)

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.0.7 (build3) based on Firefox 45.5.1.
    - Upgrade gstreamer0.10-based packages to 0.10.31-3+nmu4+deb8u2.
    - Upgrade imagemagick-based packages to 8:6.8.9.9-5+deb8u6.
    - Upgrade libicu52 to 52.1-8+deb8u4.
    - Upgrade vim-based packages to 2:7.4.488-7+deb8u1.

  * Minor improvements
    - Reserve 64 MiB for the kernel and 128 MiB for privileged
      processes before the memory is wiped. We hope that this might
      help (but not solve, sadly) some crashes experienced while
      wiping the memory.

  * Build system
    - Make the wiki shipped inside Tails build deterministically
      (Closes: #11966):
      * Enable ikiwiki's "deterministic" option, and require it when
        building.
      * Use our custom backport of discount (2.2.1-1~bpo8+1~0.tails1),
        to fix reproducibility issues (Debian#782315). This can be
        dropped once our ISO builders use Stretch.
      * Install ikiwiki from our builder-jessie APT suite, to make the
        pagestats plugin output deterministic.
    - refresh-translations: don't update PO files unless something
      other than POT-Creation-Date was changed. (Closes: #11967)
    - Fix Vagrant's is_release? check. Per auto/build, we consider it
      a release when we build from detached head, and HEAD is tagged.
    - Enforce `cleanall` when building a release. I.e. don't allow the
      user supplied options to override this behaviour. This is
      important since Vagrant caches wiki builds, and we do not want
      leftovers from a previous builds ending up in a release. Also,
      this is required for making Tails images build reproducibly.
    - Make the build system's `cleanall` option really clean
      everything.  At the moment it doesn't clean the cached wiki
      build (which basically was its only job).
    - import-package: support contrib and non-free sections.

  * Test suite
    - Wait a bit between opening the shutdown applet menu, and
      clicking one of its widgets. (Closes: #11616).
    - Adapt Icedove test after removing the amnesia branding add-on.
      (Closes: #11906)
    - Replace --pause-on-fail with --interactive-debugging. It does
      the same thing, but also offers an interactive Ruby shell, via
      pry, with the Cucumber world context.

    - Switch userpace from 32-bit to 64-bit (Closes: #8183), and accordingly:
      · Memory erasure: drop the "one instance of sdmem per 2 GiB of RAM" tweak,
        that is not needed on x86-64.
      · Display a "sorry!" message when trying to boot on a 32-bit BIOS system
        (refs: #11638).
    - Switch GNOME Shell to its default black theme (Closes: #11789).

  * Minor improvements
    - Install the cirrus and modesetting X.Org drivers (Closes: #10962).
    - Install the 'amdgpu' driver for the AMD Radeon cards (refs: #11850).
    - Stop disabling kernel modesetting for QXL (refs: #11518).
    - Replace TopIcons with gnome-shell-extension-top-icons-plus.
      The former causes plenty of trouble and is apparently abandoned
      upstream. The latter is actively maintained upstream, and packaged
      in Debian. (refs: #10576)
    - Use torsocks to torify Git, and drop tsocks entirely. tsocks has been
      unmaintained for years in Debian, and was removed from testing
      for a while (Closes: #10955).
    - Replace Florence's "systray" icon with the Florence Indicator GNOME Shell
      extension (refs: #8312). And then, don't automatically start Florence:
      the Florence Indicator GNOME Shell extension will start it the first time
      one tries to display it. This should save a tiny bit of RAM.
    - Harden AppArmor Totem profiles.
    - Switch to the Debian-packaged aufs kernel module (Closes: #11829).
    - Configure the firewall to not allow root to connect to Tor at all,
      which is possible now that APT uses a dedicated user for network
      operations.
    - Fix firewall startup during early boot, by referring to the "amnesia"
      user via its UID (refs: #7018).
    - Install hunspell dictionaries instead of myspell ones, for a few more
      languages: Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Russian. Only Farsi keeps
      using a myspell dictionary for now.

  * Removed features
    - Stop installing BookletImposer PDF imposition toolkit.
      It's unmaintained upstream and thus won't be part of Debian Stretch.
    - Stop installing ekeyd:  it's unmaintained, very rarely used, poorly
      designed (dedicated daemon), and security sensitive (Closes: #7687).
    - Stop shipping ttdnsd. It was only useful for developers and power-users
      who can install it themselves as needed. It's been unmaintained upstream
      for many years. It's very buggy so we had to remove it from the DNS
      resolution loop years ago. It's not in Debian. And it's one of the only
      two bits of Tails that still relied on tsocks, that is RC-buggy,
      unmaintained in Debian, and not in Stretch at the moment. So it has
      become clear that the cost of keeping ttdnsd now outweighs the benefits
      it brought (refs: #10959).

  * Build system
    - Bump disk space (and memory for in-RAM builds) requirements.
    - Support new live-config configuration directory naming, again and again.
    - Use the lowest compression level for the SquashFS when compressing it
      with gzip. This makes our development builds faster, and the resulting
      ISO image only a little bit bigger (Closes: #9788).
    - Configure initramfs compression later, to make the build faster.

  * Test suite
    - Various refactoring while we were at it.
    - Port tests to Dogtail: installation, upgrade, notification detection,
      Synaptic, Gobby, and some of Tor Browser.
    - Workaround GNOME Shell being buggy for Dogtail (refs: #11718).
    - Update a bunch of test suite images for Stretch.
    - Mark created disk as temporary when we don't need to keep it around.
    - Simplify adding NetworkManager connections, and rely more on the defaults.
      Not providing the complete configuration file makes us test something
      closer to what happens when a user adds a Wi-Fi connection themselves.
    - Adjust the minimum allowed memory pattern coverage before wiping.
    - Always sync the time from the host when restoring from a snapshot.
      Previously we wouldn't do it when the network was plugged but Tor wasn't
      running, which can cause issues if we *then* start Tor since the time
      may be off.
    - Adjust to the fact that we now support running as a 64-bit guest
      in VirtualBox, and simplify code since we now include a 64-bit userland.
    - Improve how we restart Tor/I2P after restoring from a snapshot.
    - Adjust PolicyKit tests for Stretch.
    - Work around Tails stopping on shut down due to #11730.
      This should be reverted once #11730 is fixed properly.
    - Update the screenshot scenario.
    - Fix pcap file saving on MAC spoofing failure (Closes: #11698).
    - Test that notifications are actually shown.
    - Drop obsolete workaround for Florence sometimes not being hidden
      on startup (#11398).
    - Avoid remote shell deadlock.
    - Install at-spi2-core from Debian Sid.
      With the current version in Stretch, at-spi-bus-launcher crashes on
      start, breaking parts of GNOME's accessibility, and Dogtail.
      For details, see https://bugs.debian.org/840618.
    - Check that the MAC address is spoofed for manually added persistent
      NetworkManager connections created on Jessie and Stretch (refs: #11931).
    - Use nc.traditional in tests that rely on its behaviour.
    - Adjust expected notification text to cope with #11941.

  * Adjustments for Debian 9 (Stretch) with no or very little user-visible impact
    - Adjust APT sources and pinning for Stretch.
    - Don't install gnome-media, which is not part of testing/sid anymore.
      We already install the only bits it was providing or depending on.
    - Don't install gnome-themes: it's gone in Stretch.
    - Stop installing GStreamer 0.10 explicitly: it won't be in Stretch,
      and some bits are gone already.
    - Refresh and unfuzzy patches for Stretch. Replace some of them with
      programmatic patching, as patches break the build whenever
      they become fuzzy.
    - Drop start_AppArmor_earlier.diff: on Stretch, AppArmor starts much earlier
      already.
    - Accept iceweasel-l10n-* that don't provide any search engine:
      on Stretch, at least iceweasel-l10n-ar_1%3a43.0.4-1_all.deb doesn't.
    - Stop deleting 75-persistent-net-generator.rules: obsolete in Stretch.
      It was removed in systemd (220-7).
    - Tell live-boot we're still using aufs: recent live-boot defaults
      to overlayfs, which we don't use yet.
    - Don't remove imagemagick in 11-localize_browser: cups-filters depends on it
      (Closes: #10960).
    - Explicitly install bc: needed by our 2010-pidgin live-config hook.
    - Remove gcc-4.9-base and gcc-5 via a chroot hook, taking into account
      that GCC 5 is the default on Stretch.
    - Switch to openjdk-8-jre: openjdk-7-jre is not in Stretch anymore.
    - gcalctool was renamed to gnome-calculator.
    - Don't try to delete non-existing AppArmor profile for ntpd: it was moved
      to the ntp package in Stretch.
    - Build DKMS modules with GCC 5: Stretch hasn't 4.8 anymore.
    - Don't try to reload or disable an initscript that we don't patch,
      and that doesn't exist anymore.
    - Support the case when /usr/src/libdvd-pkg does not exist.
      Apparently this can happen on Stretch.
    - Adjust to the move of /etc/gnome/defaults.list in Stretch
      (Closes: #11440).
    - Stop installing xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse. It's obsolete and conflicts
      with recent kernels: https://bugs.debian.org/831420
    - Install open-vm-tools from sid: it's been removed from testing.
    - Install the gobby package, instead of the (now gone) transitional
      gobby-0.5 one.
    - apparmor-adjust-tor-profile.diff: drop bits that are useless, and
      prevent Tor from starting, on Stretch.
    - Tor Daemon Status: declare compatibility with GNOME Shell 3.20.
    - Shutdown helper: declare compatibility with GNOME Shell 3.20.
    - Drop 43-adjust_path_to_ibus-unikey_binaries hook: it was a workaround
      for a bug (Debian#714932) that was fixed.
    - Use netcat-openbsd instead of connect-proxy for torifying SSH.
      connect-proxy seems barely maintained in Debian and was removed from
      testing due to https://bugs.debian.org/830423.
    - Don't disable gdomap service: we don't include it anymore.
      unar in Jessie depended on gnustep-base-runtime (that ships gdomap),
      but this is not the case in Stretch anymore.
    - Install system-config-printer-common instead of system-config-printer,
      and drop customization that were needed only for the latter:
      system-config-printer (1.5.7-2) extracts into a new -common package
      the bits needed by gnome-control-center (Closes: #11505).
    - Adjust haveged AppArmor profile to work with Linux 4.x on Stretch.
    - cupsd AppArmor profile: update list of backends, and add aufs-specific
      tweak that Stretch needs (refs: #11699).
    - Revert to GNOME's default font antialiasing/hinting.
      We fixed on rgba/slight when converting some manual fontconfig stuff
      to GNOME's layer on top of it, but at least from a fresh Stretch
      install (2016-08-24) we got grayscale/slight. It could be that some
      auto-detection is involved, so the values would be different depending
      on the actual hardware. Any way, let's try to decrease our delta here.
    - Adjust haveged arguments customization for Stretch (Closes: 11522).
    - Display the date in the desktop top bar, as we did in Jessie and older.
      (Closes: #11696)
    - Drop patch to keep haveged, saned, spice-vdagent and laptop-mode running
      on shutdown. These patches are no-ops on Stretch, where these services
      have native systemd unit files. It's not worth porting these patches:
      saned is socket-activated so in most cases it does not have to be shut
      down, and we expect that the other ones can be stopped pretty quickly.
      Let's bring back this kind of optimization if, and only if, we identify
      an actual problem to fix in this area :)
    - Don't delete downloaded debs after install: apt(8) >= 1.2~exp1 deletes
      them by default, which is not nice for users who use it to preseed
      their persistent APT cache. (Closes: #10958)
    - Hide "OpenJDK Java 8 Policy Tool" from the Applications menu.
    - Don't ship GCC 6: we don't ship compilers in Tails usually.
    - Don't ship gcc-5-base: on Stretch we ship gcc-6-base instead.
    - Don't start shipping libdvdcss2-dbgsym nor paxctld.
    - Adjust default web browser customization: GNOME in Debian now defaults
      to Firefox ESR (refs: #11440).
    - Install libreoffice-gtk3: on Stretch this is needed to have Gtk+ 3 widgets
      and a Gtk/GNOMEish print dialog.
    - Explicitly install gtk2-engines-pixbuf, as it's not pulled automatically
      on Stretch, and it's needed to theme GTK+ 2 applications in a nice way
      (Closes: #11715).
    - AppArmor gnome abstraction: allow reading /etc/xdg/*-mimeapps.list
      (refs: #11440).
    - Drop obsolete disabling of GNOME Keyring's GnuPG agent feature.
      That feature was removed upstream.
    - Explicitly select pinentry-gtk2 as our preferred pinentry program.
      On Stretch, gnome-keyring depends on pinentry-gnome3, and then that one
      is selected by default. It does not feel worth it to introduce a hackish
      solution such as a fake pinentry-gnome3 package, so let's ignore it and
      just make sure we are using the pinentry program we prefer
      (Closes: #11713).
    - Drop keep_memlockd_on_shutdown.diff: it's been a no-op since Tails 2.0
      (Closes: #11708).
    - Drop custom NetworkManager plugin configuration: these tweaks are not
      needed on Stretch anymore.
    - Disable new style network interface naming scheme.
      It has little value for a live system, so let's stick to what we are
      used to, and avoid having to adjust code/config/test suite
      (Closes: #11721).
    - Drop obsolete NM configuration wrt. sending hostname in DHCP requests
      (Closes: #11720).
    - Update APT pinning to cover all binary packages built from src:mesa
      (refs: #11853).
    - Don't try to install gnupg-curl: it doesn't exist anymore in Stretch.
    - Install seahorse-nautilus from sid. It's been removed from testing.
    - Drop workaround for Debian bug #645466, that was fixed in 2014
      (Closes: #11534).
    - Allow the "_apt" user to use Tor: in Stretch, APT network operations
      are performed with the "_apt" user and not root.
    - Make sure that 'localhost' points to the IPv4 loopback address.
    - Make desktop launchers executable (Closes: #11927).
    - Disable Wayland usage in GDM (Closes: #11923).
    - Fix AppArmor profile for gst-plugin-scanner (Closes: #11928).
    - Change Nautilus' default zoom level to 'small' (Closes: #11716).
      The icons in GNOME Files and on the desktop are too huge otherwise. With
      this new setting, they are similar in size to what we had in Jessie.
    - Fix broken symlink preventing Enigmail from being enabled.
    - Configure NetworkManager to not touch MAC addresses (refs: #11931).
      Its default behaviour on Debian Stretch is to reset the MAC address to the
      permanent one, and we did not make up our mind yet wrt. replacing
      our custom MAC spoofing system with NM's own one (refs: #11293).
    - Patch NetworkManager so that it does not leak the hostname in DHCP
      requests (Closes: #11720).
    - Deal with the fact that the NetworkManager dispatcher scripts are now
      sometimes called with an empty first argument (Closes: #11938).
    - Upgrade to GnuPG 2.1.15-9, and accordingly:
      · Remove the CA certificate for sks-keyservers.net, that we installed
        in the system-wide CAs directory: it is now included in the dirmngr
        package. Stop trusting it for non-GnuPG operations.
      · Make dirmngr use the sks-keyservers.net CA certificate from Debian.
      · Move keyserver proxy configuration to dirmngr.conf, and drop the
        keyserver-options that are obsolete or now the default.
