        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

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

      information about locale settings (Closes: #16029).

      in logs due to many DENIED entries (Closes: #15965).

      to read the auth cookie manually: that's fragile and breaks some use

  * Major changes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 8.0 (Closes: #15803, #15907).
      Notable user-visible changes and relevant details:

      · Switch back to 128px icons (Closes: #15081).
      · AppArmor profile: take into account new Firefox binary path.

    - 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
      (Closes: #15843).

    - Revert to Stretch's X.Org nouveau video driver (Closes: #15833).
      It seems that the regression brought by the upgraded one
      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:

        for a given package in their live-additional-software.conf
        (Closes: #15822).

    - Make the Chutney nodes use a higher V3AuthVotingInterval to make client
      bootstrap more robust (Closes: #15799).
    - Update the Tor Launcher binary path.
    - Adjust to the fact "New Circuit for this Site" is now in the site
      information and not under the Torbutton anymore.
    - Delete unused images.

      (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.
446
447
      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).
479
480
    - 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.

      we do for Tor Browser, for easier upgrade handling.

  * Security fixes
    - Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.5.3 (MFSA 2018-10, Closes: #15459).
    - Upgrade Thunderbird to 1:52.7.0-1~deb9u1.0tails1 (DSA-4155,
      Closes: #15471).
    - Upgrade libicu to 57.1-6+deb9u2 (DSA-4150).
    - Upgrade intel-microcode to 3.20180312.1~bpo9+1. Implements
      IBRS/IBPB/STIPB support, Spectre-v2 mitigation for: Sandybridge,
      Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake
      (Closes: #15173).

  * Bugfixes
    - Tor Browser AppArmor profile:
     * Grant the main Firefox process access to machine-id: needed for
       IBus support (Closes: #15437).
     * Allow access to extensions installed by the user such as Tails
       Verification (Closes: #15434).
    - Remove packages needed to support Video Acceleration API
      (VA-API) because they breaks opening GNOME Settings and Totem in
      Tails 3.6 on some computers (only NVIDIA for now but perhaps
      other hardware is affected). (Closes: #15433, #15449)
    - Upgrade Linux to 4.15.11-1 and bump the aufs submodule (Closes:
      #15456, #15457).
    - tails-documentation script:
      * open translated documentation page in Tor Browser when online
        (Closes: #15371).
      * use documented syntax for os.execv (Refs: #15332)
      * re-add support for passing a HTML anchor as the second
        argument.
    - Fix issue where the tails-persistence-setup user's guid would be
      changed when it was the uid that was intended (Closes: #15422).

    - 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).

      Spotted on feature/buster that's the first branch that exercises
      this code, but there's no reason to fix it only there.

      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
      EarlyInitialization managed by systemd, and make the keyboard
      layout configuration as part of it. This fixes an issue where
      the layout chosen in the Greeter sometimes wasn't applied in the
      GNOME session (Closes: #12543).

  * Build system
    - auto/{build,clean,config}: run with `set -eu`.
    - Add script to sanity check the website. Currently it ensures all
      blog posts and security advisories have valid Ikiwiki 'meta
      date' directives, since we depend on it for reproducibility.
      Also make passing this sanity check a pre-condition for building
      the website (Closes: #12726, #14767).
    - Abort the ISO build when DKMS modules were not built.
    - Take into account where DKMS modules get installed nowadays.
    - auto/build: normalize file timestamps in wiki/src before
      building. The copy of the website included in the ISO image has
      "Posted" timestamps that apparently match when we cloned the Git
      repository, which affects reproducibility. (Closes: #14933).
    - Fix reproducibility of builds of topic branches that lag behind
      their base branch with the mergebasebranch build option enabled.
      Two otherwise identical merge commits done at different times
      get different IDs, and we happen to embed in the ISO the ID of
      the commit we're building from. (Closes: #14946)

  * Test suite
    - Bump timeout for "I can save the current page as", otherwise the
      "The Tor Browser directory is usable" scenario fails randomly
      when the system is under load.
    - New scenario: installing Tails to an eligible drive with an
      existing filesystem. This is a regression test for #14755.
    - New scenario: re-installing over an existing Tails installation.

    - Upgrade to Thunderbird 52.3.0 (Closes: #12639).
    - Deny access to Pidgin's D-Bus service (Closes: #14612). That D-Bus
      interface is dangerous because it allows _any_ application running
      as `amnesia' that has access to the session bus to extract
      basically any information from Pidgin and to reconfigure it:
      https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/DbusHowto
    - Block loading of Bluetooth kernel modules (Closes: #14655) and
      block Bluetooth devices with rfkill (Closes: #14655).
    - Add localhost.localdomain to the hosts file to prevent loopback
      leaks to Tor circuits (Closes: #13574). Thanks to tailshark for
      the patch!

      and generally improves the UX. It also increases the Tails partition
      size and refuses to install to devices smaller than 8 GB.
