* Dummy changelog entry for next major release.
* Major new features
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 4.5, which introduces many major new
features for usability, security and privacy. Unfortunately its
per-tab circuit view did not make it into Tails yet since it
requires exposing mor Tor state to the user running the Tor
Browser than we are currently comfortable with.
- Upgrade Tor to Like in the Tor
bundled with the Tor Browser, we patch it so that circuits used
for SOCKSAuth streams have their lifetime increased indefinitely
while in active use. This currently only affects the Tor Browser
in Tails, and should improve the experience on certain web sites
that otherwise would switch language or log you out every ten
minutes or so when Tor switches circuit.

* Bugfixes
- Fix set_simple_config_key(). If the key already existed in the
config file before the call, all other lines would be removed
due to the sed option -n and p combo. (Closes: #9122)

(Closes: #9138)

if access to assistive technologies in its Apparmor

ClientTransportPlugin hacks are not needed any more. (Closes:

LibreOffice. (Closes: #8996)

specific to Jessie, migrating from ffmpeg to libav, and
similar. (Closes: #8165)
