+tails (2.0~rc1) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
- * Dummy entry for next release.
+ * Major new features and changes
+ - Remove Claws Mail: Icedove is now the default email client
+ (Closes: #10167).
+ - Upgrade Tor Browser to 5.5a6 (Closes: #10858).
+ Note: we partially, and temporarily, disabled the Tor Browser window
+ resizing feature; it interferes with the automated test suite
+ by causing misclicks, and will supposedly appear in a different form
+ in the final Tor Browser 5.5 release anyway.
+ * Security fixes
+ - Upgrade Linux to 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u2.
+ - Upgrade Icedove to 38.5.0-1~deb8u1.
+ - Upgrade Git to 1:2.1.4-2.1+deb8u1.
+ - Upgrade libxml2 to 2.9.1+dfsg1-5+deb8u1.
+ - Upgrade Samba-related packages to 2:4.1.17+dfsg-2+deb8u1.
+ - Upgrade libldb1 to 2:1.1.17-2+deb8u1.
+ * Bugfixes
+ - Don't offer the option, in Tor Browser, to open a downloaded file with
+ an external application (Closes: #9285). Our AppArmor confinement was
+ blocking most such actions anyway, resulting in poor UX; bugfix on 1.3.
+ Accordingly, remove the now-obsolete exception we had in the Tor
+ Browser AppArmor profile, that allowed executing seahorse-tool.
+ - Fix performance issue in Tails Upgrader, that made it very slow to apply
+ an automatic upgrade; bugfix on 1.7 (Closes: #10757).
+ - Use our wrapper script to start Icedove from the GNOME menus.
+ - Make it possible to localize our Icedove wrapper script.
+ - List Icedove persistence option in the same position where Claws Mail
+ used to be, in the persistent volume assistant (Closes: #10832).
+ - Fix Electrum by installing the version from Debian Testing
+ (Closes: #10754). We need version >=2.5.4-2, see #9713;
+ bugfix on 2.0~beta1. And, explicitly install python-qt4 to enable
+ Electrum's GUI: it's a Recommends, and we're not pulling it ourselves
+ via other means anymore.
+ - Restore default file associations (Closes: #10798);
+ bugfix on 2.0~beta1.
+ - Update 'nopersistent' boot parameter to 'nopersistence'; bugfix on 0.12
+ (Closes: #10831). Thanks to live-media=removable, this had no security
+ impact in practice.
+ - Repair dotfiles persistence feature, by adding a symlink from
+ /lib/live/mount/persistence to /live/persistence; bugfix on 2.0~beta1
+ (Closes: #10784).
+ - Fix ability to re-configure an existing persistent volume using
+ the GUI; bugfix on 2.0~beta1 (Closes: #10809).
+ - Associate armored OpenPGP public keys named *.key with Seahorse,
+ to workaround https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93656;
+ bugfix on 1.1 (Closes: #10889).
+ - Update the list of enabled GNOME Shell extensions, which might fix
+ the "GNOME Shell sometimes leaves Classic mode" bug seen in 2.0~beta1:
+ · Remove obsolete "Alternative Status Menu", that is not shipped
+ in Debian anymore.
+ · Explicitly enable the GNOME Shell extensions that build
+ the Classic mode.
+ - Make _get_tg_setting() compatible with set -u (Closes: #10785).
+ * Minor improvements
+ - Let the Pidgin wrapper pass through additional command-line arguments
+ (Closes: #10383)
+ - Move out of the $PATH a bunch of programs that users should generally
+ not run directly: connect-socks, end-profile, getTorBrowserUserAgent,
+ generate-tor-browser-profile, kill-boot-profile, tails-spoof-mac,
+ tails-set-wireless-devices-state, tails-configure-keyboard,
+ do_not_ever_run_me, boot-profile, tails-unblock-network,
+ tor-controlport-filter, tails-virt-notify-user, tails-htp-notify-user,
+ udev-watchdog-wrapper (Closes: #10658)
+ - Upgrade I2P to 0.9.23-2~deb8u+1.
+ - Disable I2P's time syncing support.
+ - Install Torbirdy from official Jessie backports, instead of from
+ our own APT repository (Closes: #10804).
+ - Make GNOME Disks' passphrase strength checking new feature work,
+ by installing cracklib-runtime (Closes: #10862).
+ - Add support for Japanese in Tor Browser.
+ - Install xserver-xorg-video-intel from Jessie Backports (currently:
+ 2.99.917-2~bpo8+1). This adds support for recent chips such as
+ Intel Broadwell's HD Graphics (Closes: #10841).
+ - Improve a little bit post-Greeter network unblocking:
+ · Sleep a bit longer between deleting the blacklist, and triggering udev;
+ this might help cure #9012.
+ · Increase logging, so that we get more information next time someone
+ sees #9012.
+ · Touch /etc/modprobe.d/ after deleting the blacklist; this might help,
+ in case all this is caused by some aufs bug.
+ * Test suite
+ - Update I2P tests for Jessie, and generally make them more robust.
+ - Update Electrum tests for 2.5.4-2 (Closes: #10758).
+ - Add workaround for libvirt vs. guestfs permissions issue, to allow
+ running the test suite on current Debian sid.
+ - Fix buggy code, that happened to work by mistake, in the Seahorse
+ test cases; bugfix on 1.8.
+ - Update test suite images due to CSS change on Tails' website.
+ - Adapt Tor Browser tests to work with the 5.5 series.
+ - Automatically test downloading files in Tor Browser.
+ - Remove obsolete scenario, that tested opening a downloaded file with
+ an external application, which we do not support anymore.
+ - Improve robustness of the "Tails OpenPGP keys" scenario (Closes: #10378).
+ * Build system
+ - Bump amount of disk space needed to build Tails with Vagrant.
+ The addition of the Japanese Tor Browser tarball made up reach
+ the limit of the previous value.
+ * Adjustments for Debian 8 (Jessie) with no or very little user-visible impact
+ - I2P: switch from 'service' to 'systemctl' where possible.
