tails (1.2.1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
tails (1.2.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Dummy changelog entry for next point release.
* Security fixes
- Upgrade Linux to 3.16.0-4, i.e. 3.16.7-1.
- Install Tor Browser 4.0.2 (based on Firefox 31.3.0esr).
* Bugfixes
- Install syslinux-utils, to get isohybrid back (Closes: #8155).
- Update xserver-xorg-input-evdev to 1:2.7.0-1+tails1 which
includes a patch that restores mouse scrolling in KVM/Spice
(Closes: 7426).
- Set Torbutton logging preferences to the defaults (Closes:
#8160). With the default settings, no site-specific information is
- Use the correct stack of rootfs:s for the chroot browsers (Closes:
#8152, #8158). After installing incremental upgrades Tails' root
filesystem consists of a stack squashfs:s, not only
filesystem.squashfs. When not stacking them correct we may end up
using the Tor Browser (Firefox) from an older version of Tails, or
with no Tor Browser at all, as in the upgrade from Tails 1.1.2 to
1.2, when we migrated from Iceweasel to the Tor Browser. Based on
a patch contributed by sanic.
- Use the Tor Browser for MIME type that GNOME associates with
Iceweasel (Closes: #8153). Open URLs from Claws Mail, KeePassX
etc. should be possible again.
- Update patch to include all Intel CPU microcodes (Closes: #8189).
- AppArmor: allow Pidgin to run Tor Browser unconfined, with
scrubbed environment (Closes: #8186). Links opened in Pidgin are
now handled by the Tor Browser.
- Install all localized Iceweasel search plugins (Closes: #8139).
- When generating the boot profile, ignore directories in
process_IN_ACCESS as well (Closes: #7925). This allows ut to
update the squashfs-ordering again in Tails 1.2.1.
- gpgApplet: Don't pass already encoded data to GTK2 (Closes:
#7968). It's now possible to clearsign text including non-ASCII
- Do not run the PulseAudio initscript, neither at startup nor
shutdown (Closes: #8082).
* Minor improvements
- Upgrade I2P to 0.9.17-1~deb7u+1.
- Make GnuPG configuration closer to the best practices one
(Closes: #7512).
- Have GnuPG directly use the Tor SOCKS port (Closes: #7416).
- Remove TrueCrypt support and documentat how to open TrueCrypt
volumes using cryptsetup (Closes: #5373).
- Install hopenpgp-tools from Debian Jessie.
* Build system
- Add gettext >= 0.18.3 as a Tails build dependency. We need it for
xgettext JavaScript support in feature/jessie.

* Automated test suite
- Don't click to open a sub-menu in the GNOME applications menu
(Closes: #8140).
- When testing the Windows camouflage, look for individual systray
applets, to avoid relying on their ordering (Closes: #8059).
- Focus the Pidgin Buddy List before looking for something
happening in it (Closes: #8161).
- Remove workaround for showing the TBB's menu bar (Closes #8028).
