* Bugfixes
- Add a temporary workaround for an issue in our code which checks
whether i2p has bootstrapped, which (due to some recent change
in either I2P or Java) could make it appear it had finished
prematurely. (Closes: #10185)
- Fix a logical bug in the persistence preset migration code while
real-only persistence is enabled. (Closes: #10431)
* Minor improvements
- Rework the wordings of the various installation and upgrade
options available in Tails installer in Wheezy. (Closes: #9672)
- Restart Tor if bootstrapping stalls for too long when not using
pluggable transports. (Closes: #9516)
- Install firmware-amd-graphics, and firmware-misc-nonfree instead
of firmware-ralink-nonfree, both from Debian Sid.
- Update the Tails signing key. (Closes: #10012)
- Update the Tails APT repo signing key. (Closes: #10419)
- Install the nmh package. (Closes: #10457)
- Explicitly run "sync" at the end of the Tails Upgrader's upgrade
process, and pass the "sync" option when remounting the system
partition as read-write. This might help with some issues we've
seen, such as #10239, and possibly for #8449 as well.
* Test suite
- Add initial automated tests for Icedove. (Closes: #10332)

run. (Closes: #10151)
- Log all useful information via Cucumber's formatters instead of
printing to stderr, which is not included when logging to file
via `--out`. (Closes: #10342)
