[[!meta  title="Tails report for January 2017"]]
[[!meta   date="XXX"]]

[[!toc ]]

Releases
========

* [[Tails 2.10 was released on January 24th|news/version_2.10]] (minor release).

* Tails 2.11 is [[scheduled for March 7th|contribute/calendar]].

The following changes were introduced in Tails 2.10:

  - We installed [[*OnionShare*|doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare]],
    a tool for anonymous file sharing.

  - Enable the [[circuit view|doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser/index.en.html#circuit_view]] in Tor Browser.

  - Replace *AdBlock Plus* with *uBlock Origin*.

  - Configure the *APT* package manage to use Debian's Onion services.

  - Install the *AMDGPU* display driver. This should improve the
    support for newer AMD graphics adapters.

  - Renamed the *Boot Loader Menu* entries from "Live" to "Tails", and
    replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting
    Mode".

  - Add support for [[!wikipedia exFAT]].

  - Remove *Nyx* (previously called *arm*).

  - Rewrite *Tor control port filter* entirely. Now Tails can safely
    support *OnionShare*, the circuit view of *Tor Browser*, and
    similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar
    piece of software with this one.

Code
====

* We've issued a [[call for testing for Tails 3.0 beta|news/test_3.0-beta1/]], which is based on Debian Stretch.

XXX: List important code work that is not covered already by the Release
     section (for example, the changes being worked on for the next version).

Documentation and website
=========================

* We documented how to use [[*OnionShare*|doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare]],
  a tool for anonymous file sharing.

User experience
===============

* We've been working on [improving the user experience of Tails Installer](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-January/003333.html)
* For the Tails 3.0 test images, in Tails Greeter we will [drop the read-only persistence option](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2017-January/003320.html). We don't know yet if we will be able to re-add this option to Tails 3.0 once we release it, but we are worlking on it.

Infrastructure
==============

XXX: Count the number of tests in /features at the beginning of next month

         git checkout `git rev-list -n 1 --before="June 1" origin/devel`
         git grep --extended-regexp '^\s*Scenario:' -- features/*.feature | wc -l

XXX: Report only if more scenarios have been written and add the diff from the previous month, for example:

       - Our test suite covers SCENARIOS scenarios, DIFF more that in May.

Funding
=======

* [LinuxFr: Tails, nous avons besoin de vos dons](https://linuxfr.org/news/tails-nous-avons-besoin-de-vos-dons) was published as a follow-up on our call for donations.

Outreach
========

Upcoming events
---------------

* We have a booth at [FOSDEM](https://fosdem.org/2017/) in Brussels.
* Tails will be presented in a [cryptoparty](http://biblio.insa-rennes.fr/crypto) on march 4th 2017 in Rennes, France.

On-going discussions
====================

* We've been discussing how to [improve our memory erasure process](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-dev/2017-January/011128.html).
* We've announced that [[Tails 3.0 will require a 64-bit processor|news/Tails_3.0_will_require_a_64-bit_processor/]].
