# Changes
Notable user-visible changes include:
* New features
- Install Linux kernel 3.10.3-1 from Debian unstable.
- Iceweasel 17.0.8esr + Torbrowser patches.
* Bugfixes
- Prevent Iceweasel from displaying a warning when leaving HTTPS web sites.
- Make Iceweasel use the correct, localized search engine.
- Fix Git access to https:// repositories.
* Minor improvements
- Install Dasher, a predictive text entry tool.
- Add a wrapper around TrueCrypt which displays a warning about it soon
being deprecated in Tails.
- Remove Pidgin libraries for all protocols but IRC and Jabber/XMPP.
Many of the other protocols Pidgin support are broken in Tails and
haven't got any security auditting.
- Disable the pre-defined Pidgin accounts so they do not auto-connect
on Pidgin start.
- Include information about Alsa in WhisperBack reports.
- Explicitly restrict access to ptrace. While this setting was enabled
by default in Debian's Linux 3.9.6-1, it will later disabled in 3.9.7-1.
It's unclear what will happen next, so let's explicitly enable it ourselves.
- Do not display dialog when a message is sent in Claws Mail.
- Sync iceweasel preferences with the Torbrowser's.
* Localization
- Many translation updates all over the place.
- Merge all Tails-related POT files into one, and make use of intltoolize
for better integration with Transifex.
