The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.7, is out. It is built on
top of [Debian Squeeze](https://www.debian.org/).
Notable changes include:
* Tor 0.2.1.30
* Protecting against memory recovery: new, safer way to wipe memory on
shutdown which is now also used when the boot media is physically
* Hardware support
- printers: install more printer drivers, allow the default user to
manage more kinds of printers
- 3G: support mobile broadband devices such as 3G USB dongles
- wireless: install Atheros and Broadcom firmwares
- scanner and multi-function peripherals: better support
- install the HTTPS Everywhere extension
- many Anonymity Set preservation enhancements, mostly inspired by
the Tor Browser Bundle configuration
- support FTP, thanks to FoxyProxy
* Other software
- user-friendly encryption support: install gnome-disk-utility
(Palimpsest) and Seahorse plugins
- add opt-in i2p support with Iceweasel integration through FoxyProxy
- optionally install TrueCrypt at boot time to allow users of the
(old and now unsupported) *Incognito* live system to access the
data on previously created media; this is *not* meant to be used to
create new TrueCrypt media ([[more information|doc/encryption_and_privacy/truecrypt]])
- make better use of battery-powered hardware
- replace xsane with simple-scan which is part of GNOME and way
easier to use
- install scribus-ng instead of scribus: more features, less bugs
- drop incoming packets by default
- [[!tails_ticket 5852 desc="forbid queries to DNS resolvers on the LAN"]]
- set output policy to drop (defense-in-depth)
- fromiso= bugfixes
- configure keyboard layout accordingly to the chosen language for
Italian and Portuguese
- more robust HTP time synchronization wrt. network failures;
display the logs when the clock synchronization fails
- disable automatic media mounting and opening to protect against
a class of attacks that was recently put under the spotlights
- GnuPG: default to stronger digest algorithms
Plus the usual bunch of minor bug reports and improvements.

for technical details.
# I want to try it!

# Can I use it on a pre-Intel Mac computer?
Tails images with *i386* in their name work on the Intel x86
architecture only. However, we've been working towards releasing a
Tails image suitable for the pre-Intel Macs hardware (PowerPC
architecture). Stay tuned, it will be prepared and made available
