tails (2.9) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy entry.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.0.8 based on Firefox 45.6. (Closes:
- Upgrade Icedove to 45.5.1-1~deb8u1+tails1. (Closes: #12029)
* Minor improvements
- Switch to DuckDuckGo as the default search engine in the tor
Browser. This is what Tor Browser has, and (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:
- Improve the display name for the Wikipedia search plugin.
- Enable contrib and non-free for our own APT repos.
- Upgrade Tor to (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outdated thanks to our donation campaign.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:
- Resolve instead of picking a static address.
Just hours after updating the 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)
