tails (0.7.1~1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
** SNAPSHOT build @736bd763dce037d96696c7cafabedd7daff7e318 **
* Vidalia: new 0.2.12-2+tails1 custom package.
* Iceweasel
- Don't show Foxyproxy's status / icon in FF statusbar to prevent users
from accidentaly / unconsciously put their anonymity at risk.
- "amnesia branding" extension: bump Iceweasel compatibility to 4.0 to ease
development of future releases.
* Software
- Upgrade Linux kernel to Debian's 2.6.32-33: fixes tons of bugs,
including the infamous missing mouse cursor one. Oh, and it closes
a few security holes at well.
- Install unrar-free.
- Do not install pppoeconf (superseeded by NetworkManager).
- Upgrade macchanger to Debian testing package to ease development of
future Tails releases.
- Debian security upgrades: x11-xserver-utils (DSA-2213-1), isc-dhcp
(DSA-2216-1), libmodplug (DSA-2226-1).
* Protecting against memory recovery
- Add Italian translation for tails-kexec. Thanks to Marco A. Calamari.
- Make it clear what it may mean if the system does not power off
- Use kexec's --reset-vga option that might fix display corruption issues
on some hardware.
* WhisperBack (encrypted bug reporting software)
- Upgrade WhisperBack to 1.4.1:
localizes the documentation wiki's URL,
uses WebKit to display the bug reporting help page,
now is usable on really small screens.
- Extract wiki's supported languages at build time, save this
information to /etc/amnesia/environment, source this file into the
Live user's environment so that WhisperBack 1.4+ can make good use
of it.
* Miscellaneous
- Install mobile-broadband-provider-info for better 3G support.
- Add back GNOME system icons to menus.
- tails-security-check: avoid generating double-slashes in the Atom
feeds URL.
- Remove "vga=788" boot parameter which breaks the boot on some hardware.
- Remove now useless "splash" boot parameter.
- Fix a bunch of i386-isms.
- Pass the noswap option to the kernel. This does not change actual Tails
behaviour but prevents users from unnecessarily worrying because of
the "Activating swap" boot message.
* Build system
- Enable squeeze-backports. It is now ready and will be used soon.
- Install eatmydata in the chroot.
- Convert ikiwiki setup files to YAML.
