* Major new features and changes
+ - Upgrade to Debian 8 (Jessie).
+ - Migrate to GNOME Shell in Classic mode.
+ - Use systemd as PID 1, and convert all custom initscripts to systemd units.
+ - Remove the Windows camouflage feature: our call for help to port
+ it to GNOME Shell (issued in January, 2015) was unsuccessful.
- 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.
+ - Upgrade Tor Browser to 5.5 (Closes: #10858, #10983).
* Security fixes
- - Upgrade Linux to 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u2.
+ - Minimally sandbox many services with systemd's namespacing features.
+ - Upgrade Linux to 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u3.
- 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.
- Upgrade KeePassX to 0.4.3+dfsg-0.1+deb8u1.
- - Upgrade Perl to 5.20.2-3+deb8u2.
+ - Upgrade Perl to 5.20.2-3+deb8u3.
+ - Upgrade bind9-related packages to 1:9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u5.
+ - Upgrade FUSE to 2.9.3-15+deb8u2.
+ - Upgrade isc-dhcp-client tot 4.3.1-6+deb8u2.
+ - Upgrade libpng12-0 to 1.2.50-2+deb8u2.
+ - Upgrade OpenSSH client to 1:6.7p1-5+deb8u1.
* Bugfixes
+ - Restore the logo in the "About Tails" dialog.
+ - Don't tell the user that "Tor is ready" before htpdate is done
+ (Closes: #7721).
+ - Upgrader wrapper: make the check for free memory more accurate
+ (Closes: #10540, #8263).
+ - Allow the desktop user, when active, to configure printers;
+ fixes regression introduced in Tails 1.1 (Closes: #8443).
+ - Close Vidalia before we restart Tor. Otherwise Vidalia will be running
+ and showing errors while we make sure that Tor bootstraps, which could
+ take a while.
+ - Allow Totem to read DVDs, by installing apparmor-profiles-extra
+ from jessie-backports (Closes: #9990).
+ - Make memory erasure on shutdown more robust (Closes: #9707, #10487):
+ · don't forcefully overcommit memory
+ · don't kill the allocating task
+ · make sure the kernel doesn't starve from memory
+ · make parallel sdmem handling faster and more robust
- 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.

- · Increase logging, so that we get more information next time someone
- sees #9012.
- · Touch /etc/modprobe.d/ after deleting the blacklist; this might help,

- * 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.
