-tails (0.17) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
+tails (0.17~rc1) unstable; urgency=low
- * Upcoming release
+ * New features
+ - Install the KeePassX password manager, with a configuration and
+ documentation that makes it easy to persist the password database.
- -- Tails developers <amnesia@boum.org> Thu, 10 Jan 2013 12:47:42 +0100
+ * Iceweasel
+ - Ugrade to Iceweasel 17.0.2esr-1+tails2~bpo60+1.
+ - Install xul-ext-adblock-plus from squeeze-backports.
+ - Do not allow listing all available fonts.
+ Set browser.display.max_font_attempts and browser.display.max_font_count
+ to enable the Torbrowser Limit-the-number-of-fonts-per-document patch.
+ - Set default spellchecker dictionary to English (USA),
+ and localize it according to locale with our custom branding extension.
+ - Disable the add-ons automatic update feature.
+ - Make the generated profile world-readable.
+ - Remove NoScript click-to-play confirmation.
+ - Sync some prefs set by Torbutton, to be ready when it stops setting these.
+ - Disable navigation timing.
+ - Disable SPDY. It stores state and may have keepalive issues.
+ - More aggressive iceweasel HTTP pipelining settings.
+ - Enable WebGL (as click-to-play only).
+ - Disable network.http.connection-retry-timeout.
+ - Disable full path information for plugins.
+ - Remove NoScript blocks of WebFonts.
+ - Disable DOM storage in Torbutton.
+ Since we don't apply the 0026-Isolate-DOM-storage-to-first-party-URI.patch
+ Torbrowser patch yet, and still disable DOM storage, we need to tell
+ Torbutton not to use it.
+ - Synchronize iceweasel's general.useragent.override with TBB based on FF17.
+ The User-Agent settings are not kept up-to-date anymore in Torbutton, so
+ we have to keep in sync manually with TBB's settings.
+ - Remove obsolete APT pining for Torbutton.
+ It's not maintained in Debian anymore, so we now fetch it from our own
+ APT repository.
+ - Fetch FoxyProxy from Debian experimental and libnspr4-0d from
+ squeeze-backports, for compatibility with Iceweasel 17.
+ - Rebase bookmarks file on top of the default iceweasel 17 one.
+ - Explicitly disable AdBlock Plus "correct typos" feature.
+ This feature connects to http://urlfixer.org/.
+ It is disabled by default in 2.2-1, but let's be careful.
+
+ * Minor improvements
+ - Upgrade to live-boot 3.0~b11-1 and live-config 3.0.12-1.
+ Accordingly update the 9980-permissions hook, live-persist,
+ unsafe-browser and boot-profile.
+ Add compatibility symlinks from /live to /lib/live, and from /live/image
+ to /lib/live/mount/medium, to ease the transition.
+ - Check for errors when sourcing live-boot files, e.g. to detect when
+ they have been renamed upstream.
+ - Don't add "quiet" to the kernel command-line ourselves.
+ Else, it appears twice as live-build's lb_binary_syslinux adds it too.
+ Historically, we've been adding it ourselves on top of that because
+ lb_binary_yaboot does not add it, but since we gave up the PowerPC support
+ attempt, we're now only interested in syslinux, so let's make it easier
+ for the general case, e.g. when one wants to remove the "quiet" parameter
+ as suggested by our "Tails does not start" debugging documentation.
+
+ * Bugfixes
+ - Use the regular GnuPG agent + pinentry-gtk2 instead of Seahorse
+ as a GnuPG agent. This fixes usage of OpenPGP in Claws Mail,
+ and brings support for OpenPGP smartcards.
+ - Enable I2P hidden mode.
+ Else, killing I2P ungracefully is bad for the I2P network.
+ - live-persist: move error() function before the first potential usecase.
+ - Add missing executable bit on restart-tor and restart-vidalia.
+
+ * Hardware support
+ - Install recent Intel and AMD microcode from squeeze-backports,
+ explicitly excluding the iucode-tool package that's not a good idea
+ for Live systems.
+ - Install firmware loader for Qualcomm Gobi USB chipsets.
+ This is needed to have various mobile broadband chipsets work.
+ - Upgrade barry to 0.18.3-5~bpo60+1.
+ This much improved new version supports more hardware & ISP,
+ and does not display dozens of spurious error messages at boot time.
+
+ * Build system
+ - Remove APT local cache (/Var/cache/apt/{,src}pkgcache.bin).
