tails (0.18~rc1) unstable; urgency=low
* Upcoming release
* New features
- Support obfs3 bridges.
- Automatically install a custom list of additional packages chosen by
the user at the beginning of every working session, and upgrade them
once a network connection is established (technology preview).
* Iceweasel
- Update Torbrowser patches to current maint-2.4 branch (567682b).
- Isolate DOM storage to first party URI, and enable DOM storage.
- Isolate the image cache per url bar domain.
- Torbutton 1.5.2, and various prefs hacks to fix breakage:
· Add .saved version of the Torbutton preferences the TBB also sets.
· Move some prefs (network.proxy.*, extensions.autoDisableScopes,
extensions.foxyproxy.last-version) to user.js.
Else, with Torbutton 1.5.x, these ones are not taken into account.
· Set network.proxy.socks_version.
Else we get the meaningless user_pref("network.proxy.socks_version", 9063);
in prefs.js after the initial startup.
· Set extensions.foxyproxy.socks_remote_dns to true.
Else, it overrides the various ways we set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns,
which in turn makes Torbutton think it should start in non-Tor mode.
- Update prefs to match the TBB's, fix bugs, and take advantage of the latest
Torbrowser patches:
· Increase pipeline randomization.
· Fix @font-face handling of local() fonts.
Also disable fallback font rendering.
· Explicitly disable SPDY v2 and v3.
· Update http pipelining prefs.
- Make prefs organization closer to the TBB's:
· Remove Torbutton prefs that we set at their default value.
· Import Torbutton preferences from the TBB.
· Organize iceweasel config files in sections the same way as the TBB.
- Cleanup prefs:
· Don't set extensions.torbutton.clear_cookies nor
we don't care about toggling anymore.
· Don't set extensions.torbutton.saved.download_retention nor
these settings are not used in Torbutton anymore.
- Update unsafe browser prefs mangling accordingly.
* Bugfixes
- Fixed swapped filenames of tails-{reboot,shutdown}.desktop.
Thanks to Mikko Harhanen for the patch.
- Only add ClientTransportPlugin to torrc when bridge mode is enabled.
This should bring back support for proxies of type other than obfsproxy.
* Minor improvements
- Set kernel.dmesg_restrict=1, and make /proc/<pid>/ invisible
and restricted for other users. It makes it slightly harder for an attacker
to gather information that may allow them to escalate privileges.
- Install gnome-screenshot.
- Don't disable IPv6 on all network interfaces anymore.
It turns out the IPv6 leaks we wanted to fix actually don't exist.
- Add a "About Tails" launcher in the System menu.
- Install GNOME accessibility themes.
- Use 'Getting started...' as the homepage for Tails documentation button.
- Stop relying on the obsolete /live/image compatibility symlink.
- Disable audio preview in Nautilus.
* Localization
* Build process
- Make Vagrant's build-tails script support Jenkins too.
* Test suite
- Fix Unsafe Browser test broken by hidepid.
