tails (3.13.2) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy entry for next release.
* Major changes
- Replace all locale-specific fonts and standang X.Org fonts with
the Noto fonts collection (Closes: #9956).
- Install localization support packages for all tier-1 supported languages,
and only those (Closes: #15807). Current tier-1 supported languages are:
Arabic, German, English, Spanish, Farsi, French, Italian, Portuguese
(Brazil), Russian, Turkish, Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian.
- Disable the TopIcons GNOME Shell extension (Closes: #16608).
This extension causes crashes (#11188), does not work on Wayland
(#8309, #12213) so long-term, we need to remove it anyway.
In order to learn how much our users rely on this extension and
on OpenPGP Applet, let's disable this extension for one Tails release.
While TopIcons is disabled (by default):
· Users can still use OpenPGP Applet via the system tray in the bottom
left corner of the desktop.
· Users who do need TopIcons for other reasons can enable it again
with 1 command line.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 8.0.9 (Closes: #16694).
- Upgrade to Debian Stretch 9.9 (Closes: #16670).
- Upgrade Thunderbird to 60.6.1 (Closes: #16641).
* Bugfixes
- Fix Thunderbird account setup wizard (Closes: #16573).
- Display poweroff and reboot buttons even when locked (Closes: #15640).
- Disable emergency shutdown during suspend (Closes: #11729).
- Provide feedback while starting Onion Circuits (Closes: #16350).
- Associate .key files with Seahorse (Closes: #15213).
This partially fixes importing OpenPGP keys from GNOME Files.
- Don't show spurious notification about "TailsData" while setting
up a persistent volume (Closes: #16632).
* Minor improvements and updates
- Add a suspend button to status-menu-helper (Closes: #14556).
- status-menu-helper: clean up and refactor.
- Drop CSS hacks for the uBlock log window (Closes: #16206).
- Polish 04-change-gids-and-uids code style (Closes: #16322).
- Create persistence.conf backup in a more robust manner (Closes: #16568).
- Make the WhisperBack .desktop file translatable in Transifex
(Closes: #6486).
* Build system
- Don't fail the build if Tor Browser supports new locales that we don't ship
a spellchecking dictionary for (#15807).
- Fix apt-cacher-ng cache shrinking (Closes: #16020).
- Remove obsolete usr.bin.onioncircuits AppArmor profile (Closes: #12170).
All Tails current branches now install onioncircuits 0.6-0.0tails1,
which ships a more current AppArmor profile than the one we
have in our own Git tree.
- Install Electrum from sid (Closes: #16642).
- Avoid new "render" group stealing a GID we have already statically
allocated to another group (Closes: #16649).
* Test suite
- Disable tests about notifications in case of MAC spoofing failure:
we have a well-known bug here and these tests do nothing but confirm
it again and again, which brings no value and has a cost (#10774).
- Clarify what WebM scenarios are fragile (#10442).
- Avoid zombies by waiting for killed child processes to exit (#14948).
