* Dummy changelog entry for the next point release.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade linux-image-3.16.0-4-* to version 3.16.7-ckt2-1.
- Install Tor Browser 4.0.3 (based on Firefox 31.4.0esr) (Closes:
- Fail safe by entering panic mode if macchanger exits with an
error, since in this situation we have to treat the
driver/device state as undefined. Also, we previously just
exited the script in this case, not triggering the panic mode
and potentially leaking the real MAC address (Closes: #8571).
- Disable upgrade checking in the Unsafe Browser. Until now the
Unsafe Browser has checked for upgrades of the Tor Browser in
the clear (Closes: #8694).
* Bugfixes
- Wait for notification-daemon to run before showing the MAC
spoofing panic mode notifications. Without this, the "Network
card disabled" notification is sometimes lost when MAC spoofing
fails. Unfortunately this only improves the situation, but
doesn't fix it completely (see #8685).
- Log that we're going to stop NetworkManager before trying to do
it in the MAC spoofing scripts. Without this we wouldn't get the
log message in case stopping NetworkManager fails (thanks to
`set -e`).
- Set gnome-screenshot preferences to save the screenshots in
/home/amnesia (Closes: #8087).
- Do not suspend to RAM when closing lid on battery power (Closes:
- Properly update the Tails Installer's status when plugging in a
USB drive after it has started (Closes: #8353).
- Make rsync compare file contents by using --checksum for more
reliable generation of the squashfs filesystem in
IUKs. Previously it used the default, which is checking
timestamps and file size, but that doesn't play well with some
of the Tor browser files, which could result in updated files
not ending up in the IUK.
* Minor improvements
- Finish migrating tails-security-check and tails-iuk to our
website's new X.509 certificate authority (Closes: #8404).
* Build system
- Update to vagrant build box tails-builder-20141201. The only
change is the removal of a reference to an ISO image which
doesn't exist (except on the system that generated the build
box) which causes an error for some users (Closes: #7644).
- Generate the list of packages used during build, after building
with Jenkins (Closes: #8518).

* Automated test suite
- Check PO files (Closes: #8359).
- Fix the expected image of a failure. Previously we
looked for the "Sorry. You are not using Tor." text, but it
seems it recently changed enough for Sikuli to not find it. To
prevent future errors of the same kind we'll look for the
crossed-over onion icon instead (Closes: #8533).
- Bump timeout when waiting for Tor to re-bootstrap. We have a
dreaded issue with timeouts that are multiple of 2 minutes, and
then Tor succeeds soon after, so in order to allow for this
timeout to be reached twice, and then possibly succeed, let's
use N*2 minutes + 30 seconds, with N=2.
