parent fab4ec41
tails (3.0) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy entry for next release.
* Major changes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0.1 (Closes: #12635, #12657).

(Closes: #12609).

* Minor improvements
- Tor Browser: enable Electrolysis (e10s), i.e. render content in a separate
child process, which will allow to improve performance and security
further along the road. This required us to drop our branding add-on
and re-implement its functionality in our Tor Browser wrapper
(Closes: #12569).
- Clean obsolete cached packages when using the Additional Software Packages
feature (Closes: #12400).
- Improve KeePassX database migration handling (Closes: #12375).
- Upgrade OnionShare to 0.9.2, from Debian sid as it has been removed
from Stretch (Closes: #12610).
- Upgrade Tor to (Closes: #12656).
- Drop obsolete bilibop patch, that was applied in
- Include disk space usage information in the WhisperBack bug reports.
- Reorder technical details in WhisperBack bug reports in way that makes
more sense when reading them.
- Convert to Python 3.
- Simplify some Python code thanks to subprocess.check_ouput.
- Set the initial keyboard focus on the "Start Tails" button
in Tails Greeter (Closes: #12509).
- Convert Tails Greeter's Debian packaging to current best practices.
* Bugfixes
- Fix persistent Thunderbird configuration migration when there is
a mimeTypes.rdf, that doesn't contain any associations to "icedove"
or "/usr/bin/iceweasel" (Closes: #12580).
- Fix persistent browser bookmarks, by generating them from an sqlite dump
(Closes: #12568).
- Use the "intel" X.Org driver for Intel Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor
x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller.
- `exec' from our Thunderbird wrapper so it doesn't remain running.
- Tails Installer: don't allow installing on non-removable drives
(Closes: #10731).
- Fetch the torbrowser-launcher sources from Debian sid:
it's been removed from Debian testing.
Refresh torbrowser-AppArmor-profile.patch accordingly.
- Unsafe Browser: remove the search bar, that's currently buggy
and its presence only encourages unsupported usage (Closes: #12573).
- Unsafe Browser: disable searching in the address bar. It can result
in leaking hostnames and credentials to the default search
engine operator (Closes: #12540).
- Make our omni.ja modifications reproducible (Closes: #12620).
- Generate the fontconfig cache in a reproducible manner (Closes: #12567).
- Don't include torrents/rss.html in the ISO. It's not generated
in a deterministic manner and is worthless in the ISO (Closes: #12619).
- Improve the language → default keyboard layout mapping
in Tails Greeter (Closes: #12547).
- Don't close Tails Greeter's main window when Alt-F4 is pressed
(Closes: #12462).
* Test suite
- Run emergency_shutdown.feature after usb_*.feature, to reduce disk
space requirements (Closes: #12565).
- Deal with server messages in Pidgin.
- Improve Pidgin connectivity check robustness.
- Flag the Synaptic test as fragile (i.e. #12586).
- Optimization: only test once that Tails, booted on DVD, eventually
shuts down after wiping memory.
- Move tests about the shutdown applet to a dedicated feature,
as they have nothing to do with Tails' "emergency" shutdown feature.
- Adapt the network connectivity check to Stretch, and improve it to check
both link and IP connectivity (Closes: #12602).
- Apply a fix from upstream Git to mutter, to fix some of its interactions
with dogtail (Closes: #11718).
- Mark "Scenario: Watching a WebM video" as fragile (i.e. #10442).
* Build system
- Set create_box -e, to make the vagrant box generation a bit more robust.
(Closes: #12578).
- Install kernel from backports and Tails build deps before performing
APT upgrade, to avoid useless bandwidth usage (Closes: #12529).
- Update submodules after merging the base branch (Closes: #12556).
- Rakefile: fix date comparison in basebox:clean_old (Closes: #12575).
- Rakefile: have basebox:clean_old delete baseboxes more than 4 months old
(refs: #12576).
- Also check for fuzzy patches' .orig files at the end of our build hooks,
so we detect any fuzzy patches applied by hooks (Closes: #12617).
- Remove .orig files for patches we allow to be fuzzy.
- Don't pre-build the wiki when mergebasebranch is enabled.
When pre-building the wiki, we modify the PO files which results in a
conflict from the base branch merge in case it modifies the same
files, which breaks the build (Closes: #12611).
- Rakefile: add a task that removes all tails-builder-* libvirt volumes
(Closes: #12599).
