- Upgrade Tor to
- Confine several important applications with AppArmor.
* Bugfixes
- Install Linux 3.16-3 (that is 3.16.5-1) from Debian unstable.
* Minor improvements
- Upgrade I2P to 0.9.15, and isolate I2P traffic from the Tor
Browser by adding a dedicated I2P Browser. Also, start I2P
automatically upon network connection, when `i2p` is present on
the kernel command line.
- Make it clear that TrueCrypt will be removed in Tails 1.2.1
([[!tails_ticket 7739]]).
- Enable VirtualBox guest additions by default ([[!tails_ticket
5730]]). In particular this enables VirtualBox's display
management service.
- Make the OTR status in Pidgin clearer thanks to the formatting
toolbar ([[!tails_ticket 7356]]).
- Upgrade syslinux to 6.03-pre20, which should fix UEFI boot on
some hardware.
