-tails (0.18.1) UNRELEASED; urgency=low
+tails (0.19~rc1) unstable; urgency=low
- * Upcoming release
+ * Major new features
+ - Install Linux kernel 3.9.5-1 from Debian unstable.
+ Features of particular interest for Tails are the Yama LSM
+ (ptrace scope restrictions) and improved hardware support.
+ As a corollary, install initramfs-tools from there too.
+ - Unblock Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, WWAN and WiMAX; block every other type of
+ wireless device. Next steps are described on the
+ todo/protect_against_external_bus_memory_forensics ticket.
+
+ * Bugfixes
+ - Fix write access to boot medium at the block device level,
+ by installing bilibop-udev. Thanks to quidame for his support.
+ - tails-greeter l10n-related fixes, thanks to winterfairy:
+ · Fix so translations is applied on password mismatch messages.
+ · Separate forward and login buttons and make them translatable.
+ - Fix link to documentation when no sudo password is set.
+ - gpgApplet: partial fix for clipboard emptying after a wrong passphrase
+ was entered.
+
+ * Minor improvements
+ - Drop GNOME proxy settings: we did not find any use of it we were keen
+ to support, other than two programs (Seahorse, Pidgin) that are now run
+ with torsocks.
+ - Format newly created persistent volumes as ext4.
+ - GnuPG: don't connect to the keyserver specified by the key owner.
+ This feature opens the door to a variety of subtle attacks.
+ - GnuPG: locate keys only from local keyrings.
+ This is probably the default, but better safe than sorry.
+ - Install virt-what from Wheezy.
+ The version from Squeeze does not detect at least Parallels for Mac v.8.
+ - Upgrade live-boot and live-config to the 3.0.x final version from Wheezy.
+ · Remove /live and /lib/live/image compatibility symlinks.
+ · Add /live/overlay -> /lib/live/mount/overlay symlink.
+ The live-boot changes (commit d2b2a461) brought to fix Debian bug
+ #696495 revert some of our previous changes (commit 77dab1cb), and as
+ a result, at the time live-persist runs, no tmpfs is mounted on
+ /live/overlay, which breaks the aufs mount. So, let's just ensure
+ /live/overlay points to a tmpfs.
+
+ * Localization
+ - Many translation updates all over the place.
+
+ * Test suite
+ - Re-enable previously disabled boot device permissions test.
