tails (1.1~beta1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Rebase on Debian Wheezy
- Upgrade literally thousands of packages.
- Migrate to GNOME3 fallback mode.
- Install LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.
- Install systemd. It is not enabled by default, but having it
around will help doing the migration work.
- Enable AppArmor on the kernel command-line. This is a no-op
without the userspace tools and with no profile shipped, but it
will make it easier to fix this part of the situation.
- Remove custom LSB logging: Wheezy has fancy colored init
* Dummy entry for next release.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor to
- Fix write access to boot medium via udisks (#6172).
* Major new features
- Replace the Windows XP camouflage with an experimental Windows 8
- UEFI boot support.
- Install Linux 3.14 from Debian unstable.
- Bring back VirtualBox guest modules, installed from Wheezy
backports. Full functionality is only available when using the
32-bit kernel.

* Minor improvements
- Install seahorse-nautilus, replacing seahorse-plugins (Closes #5516).
- Install hledger (custom backport, for now): our accountant needs this.
- Install stable Scribus instead of scribus-ng.
- Install the printer driver for Epson Inkjet that use ESC/P-R.
- Install the BookletImposer PDF imposition toolkit. It's tiny,
and really helpful e.g. when producing booklets.
- Install gtkhash and nautilus-gtkhash (Closes #6763).
- Import new version of Tor Launcher:
· Now based on upstream Tor Launcher
· Tor bug #11772: Proxy Type menu not set correctly
· Tor bug #11699: Change &amp;#160 to &#160; in network-settings.dtd
· Correctly handle startup paths that contain dot.
- Upgrade to Torbutton
- Upgrade the web browser to 24.5.0esr-1+tails1~bpo60+1
(Firefox 24.4.0esr + Iceweasel patches + Torbrowser patches).
- Avoid shipping python2.6 in addition to python2.7.
- Don't install Gobby 0.4 anymore. Gobby 0.5 has been available
in Debian since Squeeze, now is a good time to drop the obsolete
0.4 implementation.
- Require a bit less free memory before checking for upgrades with
Tails Upgrader. The general goal is to avoid displaying "Not
enough memory available to check for upgrades" too often due to
over-cautious memory requirements checked in the wrapper.
- Make Tails Greeter's help window resolution-aware. Previously it
used a static 800x600 which was problematic on lower resolutions,
and sub-optimal on higher resolutions. Now it adapts itself
according to the screen resolution.
- Whisperback now sanitizes attached logs better with respect to
DMI data, IPv6 addresses, and serial numbers (Closes #6797,
#6798, #6804).
- Integrate the new logo in Tails Installer (Closes #7095)
* Build system
- Bump Vagrant builder's memory for RAM builds. Wheezy requires
more space to build, and the resulting image is larger.
- Fix Vagrant compatibility issue. Some classes' methods/fields
have been renamed between Vagrant versions, so we need a simple
compatibility layer to support all versions. Without this, it's
not possible to issue e.g. a `build` command to an already
running (i.e. `vm:up`:ed) Vagrant instance.
- Move cpu and mem checks to the `build` task. Previously, when
they were checked in `vm:up` *only* when issued while the VM
already is up, so these checks weren't run if one issues a
`build` when the VM is off. Now we'll fail earlier with a more
informative error message, and it looks like a more logical home
for them too.
- Fix buggy memory checks for RAM building. We have to take into
account which state the Vagrant VM is in for determining *where*
we check if enough memory is available for a RAM build. If it's
off, we check the host; if it's on we check the VM. Previously
we always checked the host, which doesn't make sense when the VM
is already started.
* Test suite
- Bump the tester VM's RAM by 256 MiB. There is not enough free
RAM to run Tails Upgrader with just 1 GiB of RAM after the
migration to Wheezy.
- Always adjust OOM and memory overcommit settings.
The kernel freezes seem to also happen for the amd64 kernel when
filling the memory.
- Add option to make Sikuli rety on FindFailed.
This makes it possible to update manu images for Sikuli in just *one*
test suite run, by continuously updating outdated pictures as we go.
