+tails (0.9~rc1) unstable; urgency=low
+
+ ** SNAPSHOT build @bbb1224071060e8d60bbd867bff8c8e2b68098df **
+
+ * Iceweasel
+ - Upgrade FireGPG to 0.8-1+tails2: notify users that the FireGPG Text
+ Editor is the only safe place for performing cryptographic operations,
+ and make it impossible to do otherwise. Other ways open up several
+ severe attacks through JavaScript (e.g. leaking plaintext when
+ decrypting, signing messages written by the attacker).
+ - Install Cookie Monster extension instead of CS Lite.
+ - Always ask where to save files.
+ - Support Torbutton "New identity" feature.
+
+ * Software
+ - Install MAT, the metadata anonymisation toolkit.
+ - Upgrade TrueCrypt to 7.1.
+ - Upgrade WhisperBack to 1.5~rc1 (leads the user by the hand if an error
+ occurs while sending the bugreport, proposes to save it after 2 faild
+ attempts, numerous bugfixes).
+
+ * Miscellaneous
+ - Fully rework date and time setting system.
+ - Remove the htp user firewall exception.
+ - Saner keyboard layouts for Arabic and Russian.
+ - Use Plymouth text-only splash screen at boot time.
+ - Color the init scripts output.
+ - Suppress Tor's warning about applications doing their own DNS lookups.
+ This is totally safe due to our Tor enforcement.
+ - Disable hdparm boot-time service.
+ We only want hdparm so that laptop-mode-tools can use it.
+ - Run Claws Mail using torify.
+ It's not as good as if Claws Mail supported SOCKS proxies itself,
+ but still better than relying on the transparent netfilter torification.
+ - Install HPLIP and hpcups for better printing support.
+
+ * Erase memory at shutdown
+ - Run many sdmem instances at once.
+ In hope of erasing more memory until we come up with a proper fix for
+ [[bugs/sdmem_does_not_clear_all_memory]].
+ - Kill gdm3 instead of using its initscript on brutal shutdown.
+ - Use absolute path to eject for more robust memory wipe on boot medium removal.
+
+ * Space savings
+ - Exclude kernel and initramfs from being put into the SquashFS.
+ Those files are already shipped where they are needed, that is in the ISO
+ filesystem. Adapt kexec and memlockd bits.
+ - Do not ship the GNOME icon theme cache.
+ - Do not ship .pyc files.
+ - Do not ship NEWS.Debian.gz files.
+
+ * Build system
+ - Re-implement hook that modifies syslinux config to make future
+ development easier.
