tails (3.0~beta1) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
* Dummy entry.
* All changes brought by Tails 2.7.1, 2.9.1 and 2.10.
-- intrigeri <> Sat, 19 Nov 2016 20:30:16 +0000
* Major new features and changes
- Redesigned Tails Greeter.
- Upgrade to a new snapshot (2017013002) of the Debian and Torproject
APT repositories.
- Upgrade Linux to 4.9.0-1.
* Security fixes
- Reject packets sent on the LAN to the NetBIOS name service
(Closes: #11944).
- Seahorse: use the Tor OnionBalance hidden service pool,
which provides transport encryption and authentication of the keyserver.
* Minor improvements
- Include adwaita-qt* and enable it by default, so that Qt applications
integrate nicely into a GNOME environment (Closes: #11790).
- Add support for the TREZOR hardware wallet in Electrum (Closes: #10964).
- AppArmor: allow all programs to read /etc/tor/torsocks.conf via
abstractions/base, to ease maintenance.
- Don't (try to) bind the Power button to the shutdown action
(Closes: #12004).
- Enable natural scrolling (Closes: #11969).
- Update uBlock Origin patterns + settings file.
- live-persist: remove Squeeze → Wheezy migration code.
- Update pre-existing persistent GnuPG configuration on login
(Closes: #12201).
- Upgrader: use the alpha channel when the next version will be an
alpha, beta, or RC. This will allow users of 3.0~betaN to upgrade to
the next beta or RC, without having to type any command-line
(Closes: #12206).
* Bugfixes
- Fix "upgrade from ISO" when run from a 32-bit system,
such as Tails 2.x (Closes: #11873).
- Fix ability to read videos over HTTPS with Totem (Closes: #11963).
- Re-introduce default directories in $HOME, which fixes
Spice file transfers (Closes: #11968).
- Re-enable tap-to-click (Closes: #11993).
- Lower systemd's DefaultTimeoutStopSec, to get rid of a long delay
before memory wiping starts. This also prevents shutdown from ever
being blocked by any buggy service that takes a while to stop
(Closes: #12061).
- Drop Jessie APT sources.
- Re-add VirtualBox DKMS modules.
- Fix GnuPG communication with keyservers, by using the Tor OnionBalance
hidden service pool (Closes: #12202).
- Fix Enigmail communication with keyservers, by teaching Torbirdy
not to break it (Closes: #11948):
· Patch Torbirdy to allow not breaking keyserver communication when
using GnuPG v2.1+, and to use a better default keyserver.
· Torbirdy: enable the new behaviour made possible by the aforementioned
patch (extensions.enigmail.already_torified).
· Torbirdy: drop our custom keyserver configuration, since the
aforementioned patch makes it the default.
* Removed features
- Don't install gnome-system-log anymore (Closes: #12133).
It's deprecated in GNOME, and mostly useless anyway as it's not
Journal-aware. It's replacement (gnome-logs) is not usable
enough in the context of Tails, and most users who can read logs
should manage to do it with journalctl, so don't install it either.
- Drop multiarch handling: Tails 3.0 will be amd64-only (Closes: #11961).
* Build system
- Disable eatmydata usage and caching: in current Stretch, debootstrap fails
if we use eatmydata + the operation mode picked by live-build when caching
is enabled (Closes: #12052).
- Bump disk space (and memory for in-RAM builds) requirements.
- Follow replacement of python-reportbug with python3-reportbug.
- Don't try to deinstall packages that are unknown on Stretch.
- Move AppArmor aliases to a dedicated file, and include it.
This will avoid maintaining these settings as a patch.
- Don't attempt to remove the usr.bin.chromium-browser AppArmor profile:
it's not shipped in Debian anymore.
* Test suite
- Add optional pause() notification (Closes: #12175).
- Make the remote shell's file operations robust (Closes: #11887).
- Update a number of test cases for Stretch, sometimes by converting
them to Dogtail.
- Drop usage and tests of read-only persistence.
We won't have this option anymore, and it's not even sure we'll
reintroduce it (Refs: #12093, Closes: #12055).
- Adjust CONFIGURED_KEYSERVER_HOSTNAME to match current settings.
- Test suite: clean up disks between features.
* Adjustments for Debian 9 (Stretch) with no or very little user-visible impact
- Adjust dpkg-divert path: it has moved.
- Replace xfonts-wqy with fonts-wqy-microhei + fonts-wqy-zenhei.
The former was removed from Debian testing, and the latter are recommended
by task-chinese-s-desktop and task-chinese-t-desktop.
- Install virtualbox* from sid.
It was removed from testing due to
- Drop deprecated settings from org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power.
- Update settings name in org/gnome/desktop/peripherals/touchpad, and drop
deprecated ones.
- Adjust to changed Liferea's .desktop filename.
- Also torify Liferea when started via its (new) D-Bus service.
- Install hunspell-pt-br instead of hunspell-pt-pt.
Tor Browser 6.5 moved from pt-PT to pt-BR, which is fine vs
spellcheckers in Jessie since its hunspell-pt provides both -pt and
-br, but in Stretch they are separate packages.
- AppArmor: adjust usr.sbin.cupsd profile so it loads successfully
(Closes: #12116).
- Migrate from netstat to ss.
- Update extensions.enigmail.configuredVersion.
- Remove the jessie-proposed-updates APT sources.
