Update changelog for 0.19~rc1.

parent 7df334ad
tails (0.18.1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
tails (0.19~rc1) unstable; urgency=low
* Upcoming release
* Major new features
- Install Linux kernel 3.9.5-1 from Debian unstable.
Features of particular interest for Tails are the Yama LSM
(ptrace scope restrictions) and improved hardware support.
As a corollary, install initramfs-tools from there too.
- Unblock Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, WWAN and WiMAX; block every other type of
wireless device. Next steps are described on the
todo/protect_against_external_bus_memory_forensics ticket.
* Bugfixes
- Fix write access to boot medium at the block device level,
by installing bilibop-udev. Thanks to quidame for his support.
- tails-greeter l10n-related fixes, thanks to winterfairy:
· Fix so translations is applied on password mismatch messages.
· Separate forward and login buttons and make them translatable.
- Fix link to documentation when no sudo password is set.
- gpgApplet: partial fix for clipboard emptying after a wrong passphrase
was entered.
* Minor improvements
- Drop GNOME proxy settings: we did not find any use of it we were keen
to support, other than two programs (Seahorse, Pidgin) that are now run
with torsocks.
- Format newly created persistent volumes as ext4.
- GnuPG: don't connect to the keyserver specified by the key owner.
This feature opens the door to a variety of subtle attacks.
- GnuPG: locate keys only from local keyrings.
This is probably the default, but better safe than sorry.
- Install virt-what from Wheezy.
The version from Squeeze does not detect at least Parallels for Mac v.8.
- Upgrade live-boot and live-config to the 3.0.x final version from Wheezy.
· Remove /live and /lib/live/image compatibility symlinks.
· Add /live/overlay -> /lib/live/mount/overlay symlink.
The live-boot changes (commit d2b2a461) brought to fix Debian bug
#696495 revert some of our previous changes (commit 77dab1cb), and as
a result, at the time live-persist runs, no tmpfs is mounted on
/live/overlay, which breaks the aufs mount. So, let's just ensure
/live/overlay points to a tmpfs.
* Localization
- Many translation updates all over the place.
* Test suite
- Re-enable previously disabled boot device permissions test.
