tails (3.2~rc1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Major changes
- Upgrade Linux packages to the Debian kernel 4.12.0-2, based on
mainline Linux 4.12.12 (Closes: #12732, #14673).
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0.6-build3 (Closes: #14696).
- Upgrade to Thunderbird 52.3.0 (Closes: #12639).
- Deny access to Pidgin's D-Bus service (Closes: #14612). That D-Bus
interface is dangerous because it allows _any_ application running

* Minor improvements
- Upgrade to Tails Installer 4.4.19 (Closes: #8859, #8860). This
- Upgrade to Tails Installer 5.0.1 (Closes: #8859, #8860). This
version gets rid of the splash screen, detects when Tails is already
installed on the target device (and then proposes to upgrade),
and generally improves the UX.
- Deprecate Thunderbird's preferences/0000tails.js (Closes: #12680).
- Install the BookletImposer PDF imposition toolkit (Closes: #12686).
- Tor Browser: fallback to ~/Tor Browser for uploads (Closes: #8917).
- Tor Browser:
* Fallback to ~/Tor Browser for uploads (Closes: #8917).
* Silence some common operations that always are denied and
otherwise would spam the journal (Closes: #14606)
- Shell library: remove now unused functions (Closes: #12685).
- Add pppoe to the installed packages (Closes #13463). Thanks to geb
for the patch!

- Merge base branch earlier, i.e. in auto/config instead of
auto/build (Closes: #14459). Previously, a given build from a topic
branch would mix inconsistent versions of things.
- Fail builds started before SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH (Closes:
#12352). Such builds would not be reproducible, and this is an
assumption (a reasonable one!) that we do all over the place, so
let's fail early. While we're at it, let's fail if
SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is not set as well. Actually we would fail any
way if that was the case when reaching our
99-zzzzzz_reproducible-builds-post-processing build hook, but
let's fail early.
* Test suite
- Test the GNOME Root Terminal.
- Take into account that Tails Installer 4.4.19 refuses to install
- Take into account that Tails Installer 5.0.1 refuses to install
Tails to devices smaller than 8 GiB. It'll still allow *upgrading*
such sticks though.
- Use 7200 MiB virtual USB drives when we really mean 8 GiB. In the

- Have unclutter poll every 0.1s instead of continuously. On current
sid, virt-viewer eats a full CPU and doesn't do its job when
"unclutter -idle 0" is running.
- Adapt tests for Tails Installer 4.4.19.
- Adapt tests for Tails Installer 5.0.1.
- Workaround Pidgin's DBus interface being blocked since we actually
depend on it for some tests.
- Test that Pidgin's DBus interface is blocked.

- Save more data on test suite failures (Refs: #13541):
* When Tor fails to bootstrap, save Tor logs and chutney nodes
* When Htpdate fails to synchronize the clock, save its logs.
* Always save the systemd journal on failure.
- When testing emergency shutdown, wait longer for Tails to tell
us it has finished wiping the memory. The goal here is to help
us understand whether (Refs: #13462) is a bug in the emergency
shutdown feature or in our test suite.
- Restart nautilus-desktop if Desktop icons are not visible
(Closes: #13461).
- Test suite: fix assert_raise() when using ruby-test-unit >=
3.2.5 (Closes: #14654). ruby-test-unit 3.2.5 added native Java
exception support for JRuby. The fact we defined the :Java
constant was enough to trigger that JRuby-specific code, which
- Test suite: take into account that click-to-play is not required
anymore for WebM videos in Tor Browser (Closes: #14586).
