      the Noto fonts collection (Closes: #9956).
    - Install localization support packages for all tier-1 supported languages,
      and only those (Closes: #15807). Current tier-1 supported languages are:
      Arabic, German, English, Spanish, Farsi, French, Italian, Portuguese
      (Brazil), Russian, Turkish, Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian.
    - Disable the TopIcons GNOME Shell extension (Closes: #16608).
      This extension causes crashes (#11188), does not work on Wayland
      (#8309, #12213) so long-term, we need to remove it anyway.
      In order to learn how much our users rely on this extension and
      on OpenPGP Applet, let's disable this extension for one Tails release.
      While TopIcons is disabled (by default):
      · Users can still use OpenPGP Applet via the system tray in the bottom
        left corner of the desktop.
      · Users who do need TopIcons for other reasons can enable it again
        with 1 command line.

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 8.0.9 (Closes: #16694).
    - Upgrade to Debian Stretch 9.9 (Closes: #16670).
    - Upgrade Thunderbird to 60.6.1 (Closes: #16641).

  * Bugfixes
    - Fix Thunderbird account setup wizard (Closes: #16573).
    - Display poweroff and reboot buttons even when locked (Closes: #15640).
    - Disable emergency shutdown during suspend (Closes: #11729).
    - Provide feedback while starting Onion Circuits (Closes: #16350).
    - Associate .key files with Seahorse (Closes: #15213).
      This partially fixes importing OpenPGP keys from GNOME Files.
    - Don't show spurious notification about "TailsData" while setting
      up a persistent volume (Closes: #16632).

  * Minor improvements and updates
    - Add a suspend button to status-menu-helper (Closes: #14556).
    - status-menu-helper: clean up and refactor.
    - Drop CSS hacks for the uBlock log window (Closes: #16206).
    - Polish 04-change-gids-and-uids code style (Closes: #16322).
    - Create persistence.conf backup in a more robust manner (Closes: #16568).
    - Make the WhisperBack .desktop file translatable in Transifex
      (Closes: #6486).

  * Build system
    - Don't fail the build if Tor Browser supports new locales that we don't ship
      a spellchecking dictionary for (#15807).
    - Fix apt-cacher-ng cache shrinking (Closes: #16020).
    - Remove obsolete usr.bin.onioncircuits AppArmor profile (Closes: #12170).
      All Tails current branches now install onioncircuits 0.6-0.0tails1,
      which ships a more current AppArmor profile than the one we
      have in our own Git tree.
    - Install Electrum from sid (Closes: #16642).
    - Avoid new "render" group stealing a GID we have already statically
      allocated to another group (Closes: #16649).

  * Test suite
    - Disable tests about notifications in case of MAC spoofing failure:
      we have a well-known bug here and these tests do nothing but confirm
      it again and again, which brings no value and has a cost (#10774).
    - Clarify what WebM scenarios are fragile (#10442).
    - Avoid zombies by waiting for killed child processes to exit (#14948).

      menu.
    - Rename HTP pools to avoid confusion (Closes: #15428).

      the build, with the APT_SNAPSHOTS_SERIALS build option (Closes: #15107).
    - Fix more GIDs and display more information when changing UIDs or GIDs
      fails (Closes: #16036).
    - Remove obsolete patches, refresh remaining ones to apply on top
      of currently installed packages version.
    - Disable irrelevant recurring jobs in Vagrant build box (refs: #16177)
      that increase the chance of FTBFS due to mksquashfs being reaped
      by the OOM killer.
    - Adjust for recent GnuPG error'ing out when it has no controlling terminal.

  * Test suite
    - Adjust test suite for USB image:
      - Add tests that exercise behavior on first boot from a device
        installed using the USB image (Closes: #16003).
      - Drop tests for use cases we don't support anymore with the introduction
        of the USB image (refs: #16004).
      - Adjust remaining tests to focus on main supported use cases,
        i.e. Tails installed from a USB image (refs: #16004.
    - In scenarios where we simulate MAC spoofing failure, test safety-critical
      properties even if the desktop notification is buggy (refs: #10774).
    - Update expected title for our Redmine (Closes: #16237).
    - Update expected image for OpenPGP key search.

    - Tails Upgrader:
      · Improve support for incremental upgrades to avoid issues with
        partially applied upgrades (Closes: #14754).
      · Add a prompt after the IUK has been downloaded so the user can

        done without users having a say, possibly leading to confusion and
        lost work (Closes: #15282).

    - Tor Browser AppArmor profile patch: update to apply cleanly on top
      of torbrowser-launcher 0.2.9-5.
    - Additional Software: fix issues spotted during the code review
      (Closes: #15838).
312
313

    - Improve button labels in confirmation dialogs of the Tails installer

    - Hardcode User Agent in htpdate.user-agent (Closes: #15912), as the
      Tor Browser doesn't expose it anymore.
    - Fix encoding-related crashes in Tails Installer (Closes: #15166).
    - Set the Firefox preferences to spoof English, to avoid leaking
      information about locale settings (Closes: #16029).
321
322
323
324
    - VeraCrypt: Hide PIM entries in GNOME Shell and Disks, since a newer
      cryptsetup would be needed (Closes: #16031).
    - VeraCrypt: Fix support for multiple encryption, by iterating over
      all children in the device-mapper tree (Closes: #15967).
325

330
331

334
    - Let AppArmor allow access to /usr/local/share/mime, reducing noise
      in logs due to many DENIED entries (Closes: #15965).
    - Use proper stem.connection module in onion-grater instead of trying
      to read the auth cookie manually: that's fragile and breaks some use
      cases (e.g. custom auth cookie).
335
    - Unlock VeraCrypt Volumes: Improve internationalization support.

    - Upgrade OpenSSH to 1:7.4p1-10+deb9u4 (DSA-4280).

  * Bugfixes
    - Fix Totem on Intel graphics cards by inlining the backported mesa
      and dri-enumerate abstractions into its AppArmor profile: they are needed
      with recent Mesa and libdrm (Closes: #15821). Regression introduced
      in 3.9~rc1.
    - Fix unlocking "hidden" TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt volumes via GNOME Shell

      is worse than the improvements reported after our call for testing.
      Regression introduced in 3.9~rc1.
    - Use the intel X.Org driver for Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620.
    - Fix regressions introduced in 3.9~rc1 in/by Additional Software Packages:

      bootstrap more robust (Closes: #15799).
    - Update the Tor Launcher binary path.

      Notable user-visible changes and relevant details:

      (DSA-4265).

  * Bugfixes
    - Don't display the Enigmail configuration wizard in every Tails session
      (Closes: #15693, #15746). Fix against Tails 3.8.
    - Make the torstatus GNOME Shell extension actually translatable
      (Closes: #15715). Fix against the first Tails release that included
      this extension.
    - Drop Icedove  Thunderbird migration code which started causing trouble.
    - Tails Installer:
      · Link to upgrade documentation when upgrading (Closes: #7904).
      · Show the reinstall option only when the device is big enough to make
        a full reinstallation (Closes: #14810).
      · Make the main window fit in a 600px-high screen (Closes: #14849).
      · Show the correct device size in the reinstall confirmation dialog
        (Closes: #15590).
    - Tails Greeter: don't display file:/// URLs to users (Closes: #15582).

  * Minor improvements and updates
    - Install Mesa and libdrm* from stretch-backports and upgrade the Nouveau
      X.Org video driver to 1.0.15. This improves support for some graphics
      cards such as NVIDIA Pascal series (Closes: #14910)
    - htpdate: improve diagnostics output when the date header can't be fetched.
    - Onion Grater: support named AppArmor profiles.
    - Update Onion Grater's config for new Tor Browser AppArmor profile name.
    - Enable e10s in the Unsafe Browser.
    - Delete all search plugins for the Unsafe Browser (Closes: #15708).
    - Display a deprecation warning when starting Liferea (#11082).
    - Upgrade VirtualBox guest modules to 5.2.16-dfsg-3~bpo9+2.
    - Use Tor Browser for browsing the documentation even when offline
      (Closes: #15720).
    - Provide feedback while Tor Browser, "Tails documentation"
      or "Report an error" are starting (Closes: #15101).
    - WhisperBack: remove the right pane (Closes: #7180).
    - tails-debugging-info: return machine-readable, structured data.
      Adjust WhisperBack accordingly (Closes: #8514). This paves the way
      towards more usable bug reports (#8722).
    - Port lots of our Perl code to more lightweight libraries.
511
512
      This decreases the amount of memory used by the persistence
      configuration interface.

    - Do not hide applications that require an admin password (Closes: #11013).
    - Try unlocking every persistent volume when multiple ones are
      available (Closes: #15653).
    - Upgrade Electrum to 3.1.3-1~bpo9+1.
    - Upgrade most firmware to 20180518-1.
    - Upgrade Intel microcode to 3.20180703.2~bpo9+1.
    - Upgrade AMD microcode to 3.20180524.1.

  * Build system
    - Drop AppArmor feature set pinning: this is now done in Debian Stretch
      (Closes: #15341).
    - Remove the now unused deb.torproject.org sid APT source (Closes: #15638).
    - Install OnionShare from our custom APT repo instead of from sid.
      We've mistakenly tracked sid for a while and it has become a problem,
      so stick to the version that works for us until Tails 4.0.
    - Fix building the ISO on zfs by dropping the cache=none setting for
      vmproxy's storage (Closes: #14404).
    - Update the Vagrant basebox for any change under vagrant/.
      Previously, some relevant changes were not effective until something under
      vagrant/definitions/tails-builder/ was changed.
    - Make intltool ignore .py files: `intltool-update --maintain` seems to be
      buggy with .py files.
    - Refresh our CUPS AppArmor profile patch to apply on 2.2.1-8+deb9u2.
    - Make it more obvious that the .orig file check is fatal (Closes: #15727).
    - Delete baseboxes once they're 6 months old instead of 4.
      This is more in line with the delay between our major releases these days.
    - Rename /usr/share/amnesia to /usr/share/tails. It was about time.
    - Abort the build if /etc/{passwd,group} has changed (Closes: #15419).
      Such changes can break Tails after an automatic upgrade was applied
      so let's detect it ASAP. Consequently, ensure a few GIDs — that wanted
      to play musical chairs — are the same as in Tails 3.8 (Closes: #15695).
544
545
    - Don't fail the build if the APT lists don't include any package
      whose name matches ^geoclue.

  * Test suite
    - Adjust to the new tails-persistence-setup API.
    - Update the Tor Browser's AppArmor profile name.
    - Re-enable the "I can print the current page […]" test.
    - Update tests wrt. the fact tails-upgrade-frontend-wrapper was ported
      to Python (Closes: #15379).
    - Make a test more robust by waiting for the page to have loaded.
    - Adjust to the fact the WhisperBack debugging info is now configured
      in a machine-readable file.
    - Remove test for tails-debugging-info, that has been a no-op for a while.
    - Adjust for Tor Browser 8.
    - Make the "I open the address" step more robust and accordingly
      stop marking the tests that use it in the Unsafe Browser
      as fragile (refs: #14771).
    - De-duplicate a number of images of standard GTK+ 3 widgets.
    - Make the audio and WebM tests more robust.
    - Make the "I start the Tor Browser in offline mode" step more robust.
    - Make the "AppArmor has (not )? denied" step more robust.
    - Don't try and use XVFB_PID if it's not set (Closes: #15730).
    - Adjust Pidgin test to use a certificate that's still in Debian
      (Closes: #15762).
    - Use a hopefully more reliable public GnuPG key and make tests
      more robust against new subkeys being added (Closes: #15771).
    - Stop hard-coding the list of RTL Tor Browser locales.
    - Fix the "Unsafe Browser can be used in all languages supported in Tails"
      test for locales that have a translated homepage (Closes: #11711).
    - Take into account that apt(8) won't return when run in the remote shell
      with the ASP hooks enabled.

    - Move Thunderbird's default userChrome.css to /etc/thunderbird, just like
      we do for Tor Browser, for easier upgrade handling.

    - Upgrade libxml2 to 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.2+deb9u2.

  * Minor improvements
    - Upgrade Linux to 4.14.13, which is the first kernel that has the
      "[x86] microcode/AMD: Add support for fam17h microcode loading"
      commit, that's needed to load the AMD fam17h microcode for
      mitigating the Spectre vulnerability (CVE-2017-5715).

  * Bugfixes
    - Drop Claws Mail persistence setting migration. Whenever
      persistent Claws Mail setting is enabled, this creates an empty
      ~/.icedove/ directory, that prevents Thunderbird from starting
      (Closes: #12734).

      (Closes: #13403, #15024).

  * Build system
    - Fix option passed to cmp: -q is not supported but --quiet is.
      Spotted on feature/buster that's the first branch that exercises
      this code, but there's no reason to fix it only there.

  * Test suite
    - Adapt tests for Tor Launcher 0.2.14.3, i.e. the one shipped with
      Tor Browser 7.5 in Tails 3.5 (Closes: #15064).

    - Upgrade tor to 0.3.1.9-1~d90.stretch+1.

  * Minor improvements
    - Display TopIcons systray on the left of the system menu. This
      fixes #14796 (on Buster, it is displayed in the middle of the
      screen, on the left of the clock) and an annoying UX problem we
      have on Stretch: OpenPGP applet is in the middle of icons that
      share the exact same (modern, GNOME Shell-like) behaviour, which
      is disturbing when opening one of the modern menus and moving
      the mouse left/right to the others, because in the middle one
      icon won't react as expected, and the nice blue bottom border
      continuity is broken.
    - Use the "intel" X.Org driver for integrated graphics in Intel
      i5-7300HQ (Closes: #14990).
    - Enable HashKnownHosts in the OpenSSH client (Closes: #14995).
      Debian enables HashKnownHosts by default via /etc/ssh/ssh_config
      for good reasons, let's not revert to the upstream default.
    - Pin the AppArmor feature set to the Stretch's kernel one. Linux
      4.14 brings new AppArmor mediation features and the policy
      shipped in Stretch may not be ready for it. So let's disable
      these new features to avoid breaking stuff: it's too hard to
      check if all the policy for apps we ship (and that users install
      themselves) has the right rules to cope with these new mediation
      features.

  * Bugfixes
    - Don't delete downloaded debs after install (Closes: #10958).
    - Install xul-ext-ublock-origin from sid to make the dashboard
      work again(Closes: #14993). Thanks to cacahuatl
      <cacahuatl@autistici.org> for the patch!
    - Additional software feature: use debconf priority critical to
      prevent failure when installing packages otherwise requiring
      manual configuration (Closes: #6038)
    - Don't include anything under /lib/live/mount/medium/ in the
      readahead list (Closes: #14964). This fixes the boot time
      regression introduced in Tails 3.3.

  * Build system
    - Display a more helpful error message when the 'origin' remote
      does not point to the official Tails Git repository. This task
      calls git_base_branch_head() which relies on the fact 'origin'
      points to our official repo.
    - Vagrant: never build the wiki early. This has caused several
      issues throughout the years, the lastest instance being the
      reopening of #14933. (Closes: #14933)
    - Install libelf-dev during the time we need it for building DKMS modules.
    - Make the DKMS build hook verbose, and display DKMS modules build
      logs on failure. This hook is a recurring cause of headaches,
      let's simplify debugging.
    - Remove obsolete duplicate build of the virtualbox-guest DKMS
      module.

  * Test suite
    - Log the list of systemd jobs when systemctl is-system-running
      fails (Closes: #14772). Listing the units is not enough: in most
      cases I've seen, is-system-running returns "starting" which
      means the job queue is not empty, and to debug that we need the
      list of jobs.
    - Only support SikuliX; drop support for Sikuli.
    - Disable SPICE clipboard sharing in the guest. It could only mess
      things up, and in fact has confused me by suddenly setting my
      *host's* clipboard to "ATTACK AT DAWN"... :)
    - Decode Base64.decode64 return value appropriately; it returns
      strings encoded in ASCII-8bit.
    - Don't flood the debug logger with the journal contents.
    - Handle case where $vm is undefined during an extremely early
      scenario failure.
    - Allow more time for 'systemctl is-system-running' to
      succeed. (Refs: #14772)
    - Make Sikuli attempt to find replacements on FindFailed by
      employing fuzz, or "lowering the similarity factor". The
      replacements (if found) are saved among the artifacts, and
      serves as potential drop-in-replacements for outdated
      images. The main use case for this is when the font
      configuration in Tails changes, which normally invalidates a
      large part of our images given that our default high similarity
      factor. We also add the `--fuzzy-image-matching` where the
      replacements are used in case of FindFailed, so the tests can
      proceed beyond the first FindFailed. The idea is that a full
      test suite run will produce replacements for potentially *all*
      outdated images.
    - Fix our findAny() vs findfailed_hook. For findAny() it might be
      expected that some images won't be found, so we shouldn't use
      our findfailed_hook, which is about dealing with the situation
      where images need to be updated.
    - Make sure Pidgin's D-Bus policy changes are applied (Closes:
      #15007). Without the HUP there's a race that we sometimes lose.
    - Nump the Unsafe Browser's start page image (Closes: #15006).
    - Hot-plug a 'pcnet' network device instead of 'virtio' on Sid,
      since the latter is not detected on Sid (Closes: #14819).

  * Major changes
    - Upgrade the base system to the Debian Stretch 9.2 point-release
      which gives us tons of bugfixes (Closes: #14714).
    - Install Linux 4.13.0-1 (Closes: #14789).

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Thunderbird to 52.4.0 (Closes: #14963).
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0.10 (Closes: #14940).
    - Upgrade gdk-pixbuf to 2.36.5-2+deb9u1.0tails1 (Closes: #14729).

  * Minor improvements
    - Upgrade to Tor 0.3.1.8-2~d90.stretch+1, a new stable Tor series.
    - tails-documentation: rewrite in Python + use WebKit for display
      instead of the Tor Browser. Since Tor Browser 7.0.8 rendering of
      local pages (like our docs) fail (#14962) so this is probably a
      temporary workaround of that.
    - Replace the Unsafe Browser's warning pages with static,
      pure-HTML versions. This is truly a *temporary* workaround for
      #14962.
    - Update deb.tails.boum.org APT repo key (Closes: #14927)
    - Refresh Tor Browser AppArmor profile patch to apply on top of
      torbrowser-launcher 0.2.8-4's (Closes: #14923).
    - Drop obsolete manual enabling of AppArmor on the kernel
      command-line: it's now enabled by default, so the (Tails -
      Debian) delta gets smaller. :)

  * Bugfixes
    - Install Tails Installer 5.0.2. Fixes:
      * Most notably, fix an issue preventing Tails Installer from
        installing to drives containing a non-Tails partition that
        (obviously) has affected a lot of users. (Closes: #14755).
      * Fix an issue that made the resulting installations unbootable
        if Tails Installer was using a too recent udisks2, e.g. the
        one currently in Debian Sid (Closes: #14809).
      * Code clean-ups (Closes: #14721, #14722, #14723).
    - Fix UEFI boot for USB sticks installed with Universal USB
      Installer (Closes: #8992).
    - Force Tor Browser and Thunderbird to enable accessibility
      support even if no a11y feature is enabled in GNOME yet (Closes:
      #14752, #9260).
    - Mark our custom Desktop launchers as trusted (Closes: #14793,
      Refs: 14584).
    - Add a systemd --user target for bits of GNOME
