* Dummy changelog entry.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 5.0.3. (Closes: #10223)
- Upgrade bind9-based packages to 1:9.8.4.dfsg.P1-6+nmu2+deb7u7.
- Upgrade libldap-2.4-2 to 2.4.31-2+deb7u1.
- Upgrade libslp1 to 1.2.1-9+deb7u1.
* Bugfixes
- Fix a corner case for the MAC spoofing panic mode. If panic mode
failed to disable the specific device that couldn't be spoofed
(by unloading the module) we disable networking. Previously we
only stopped NetworkManager. The problem is that NM isn't even
started at this time, but will specifically be started when
we're done with MAC spoofing. Therefore, let's completely
disable NetworkManager so it cannot possibly be
started. (Closes: #10160)
- Avoid use of uninitialized value in restricted-network-detector.
If NetworkManager decides that a wireless connection has timed
out before "supplicant connection state" has occued, our idea of
the state is `undef`, so it cannot be used in a string
comparison. Hence, let's initialize the state to the empty
string instead of `undef`. Also fix the state
recording. Apparently NetworkManager can say a few different
things when it logs the device state transitions. (Closes:

* Minor improvements
- Remove workaround for localizing search engine plugins. The
workaround has recently become unnecessary, possibly due to the
changes made for the seach bar after the Tor Browser was rebased
on Firefox 38esr. (Closes: #9146)
- Refer to the I2P Browser in the I2P notifications. Instead of
some obscure links that won't work in the Tor Browser, where
users likely will try them, and which I believe will open them
by default. (Closes: #10182)
- Upgrade I2P to 0.9.22. Also set the I2P apparmor profile to
enforce mode. (Closes: #9830)
* Test suite
- Test that udev-watchdog is monitoring the correct device when
booted from USB. (Closes: #9890)
- Remove unused 'gksu' step. This causes a false-positive to be
found for #5330. (Closes: #9877)
- Make --capture capture individual videos for failed scenarios
only, and --capture-all to capture videos for all scenarios.
(Closes: #10148)
- Use the more efficient x264 encoding when capturing videos using
the --capture* options. (Closes: #10001)
- Make --old-iso default to --iso if omitted. Using the same ISO
for the USB upgrade tests most often still does what we want,
e.g. test that the current version of Tails being tested has a
working Tails installer. Hence this seems like a reasonable
default. (Closes: #10147)
- Avoid nested FindFailed exceptions in waitAny()/findAny(), and
throw a new dedicated FindAnyFailed exception if these fail
instead. Rjb::throw doesn't block Ruby's execution until the
Java exception has been received by Ruby, so strange things can
happen and we must avoid it. (Closes: #9633)
- Fix the Download Management page in our browsers. Without the pref set, the progress being made
will not update until after the browser has been restarted.
(Closes: #8159)
- Add a 'pretty_debug' (with an alias: 'debug') Cucumber formatter
that deals with debugging instead of printing it to STDERR via
the `--debug` option (which now has been removed). This gives us
the full flexibility of Cucumber's formatter system, e.g. one
easy-to-read formatter can print to the terminal, while we get
the full debug log printed to a file. (Closes: #9491)
- Import logging module in Our does not use
logging but the jabberbot library makes logging calls, causing a
one-off message “No handlers could be found for logger
"jabberbot"” to be printed to the console. This commit
effectively prevents logging/outputting anything to the terminal
which is at a level lower than CRITICAL. (Closes: 9375)
- Force new Tor circuit and reload web site on browser
timeouts. (Closes: #10116)
- Focus Pidgin's buddy list before trying to access the tools
menu. (Closes: #10217)
- Optimize IRC test using waitAny. If connecting to IRC fails,
such as when OFTC is blocking Tor, waiting 60 seconds to connect
while a a Reconnect button is visible is sub-optimal. It would
be better to try forcing a new Tor circuit and clicking the
reconnect button. (Closes: #9653)
- Wait for (and focus if necessary) Pidgin's Certificate windows.
(Closes: #10222)
