  87.  
  88. * Bugfixes
  89. - Hide "Laptop Mode Tools Configuration" menu entry. We don't
  90. support configuring l-m-t in Tails, and it doesn't work out of
  91. the box. (Closes: #11074)
  92. - WhisperBack:
  93. * Actually write a string when saving bug report to
  94. disk. (Closes: #11133)
  95. * Add missing argument to OpenPGP dialog so the optional OpenPGP
  96. key can be added again. (Closes: #11033)
  97.  
  98. * Minor improvements
  99. - Upgrade I2P to 0.9.24-1~deb8u+1.
  100. - Add support for viewing DRM protected DVD videos using
  101. libdvdcss2. Patch series submitted by Austin English
  102. <austinenglish@gmail.com>. (Closes: #7674)
  103. - Automatically save KeePassX database after every change by default.
  104. (Closes: #11147)
  105. - Implement Tor stream isolation for WhisperBack
  106. - Delete unused tor-tsocks-mua.conf previously used by Claws
  107. Mail. (Closes: #10904)
  108. - Add set -u to all gettext:ized shell scripts. In gettext-base <
  109. 1.8.2, like the one we had in Wheezy, gettext.sh references the
  110. environment variable ZSH_VERSION, which we do not set. This has
  111. prevented us from doing `set -u` without various hacks. (Closes:
  112. #9371)
  113. - Also set -e in some shell scripts which lacked it for no good
  114. reason.
  115. - Make Git verify the integrity of transferred objects. (Closes:
  116. #11107)
  117. - Remove LAlt+Shift and LShift+RShift keyboard layout toggling
  118. shortcuts. (Closes: #10913, #11042)
  119.  
  120. * Test suite
  121. - Reorder the execution of feature to decrease peak disk
  122. usage. (Closes: #10503)
  123. - Paste into the GTK file chooser, instead of typing. (Closes:
  124. #10775)
  125. - Pidgin: wait a bit for text to have stopped scrolling before we
  126. click on it. (Closes: #10783)
  127. - Fix step that runs commands in GNOME Terminal, that was broken
  128. on Jessie when a Terminal is running already. (Closes: #11176)
  129. - Let ruby-rjb guess JAVA_HOME instead fixing on one jvm
  130. version. (Closes: #11190)
  131.  
  132. * Build system
  133. - Upgrade build system to Debian Jessie. This includes migrating to a
  134. new Vagrant basebox based on Debian Jessie.
  135. - Rakefile: print git status when there are uncommitted
  136. changes. Patch submitted by Austin English
  137. <austinenglish@gmail.com>. (Closes: #11108)
  138. - .gitignore: add .rake_tasks~. Patch submitted by Austin English
  139. <austinenglish@gmail.com>. (Closes: #11134)
  140. - config/amnesia: use --show-field over sed filtering. Patch
  141. submitted by Chris Lamb <lamby@debian.org>.
  142. - Umount and clean up leftover temporary directories from old
  143. builds. (Closes: #10772)

  150. What is Tails?
  151.  
  152. "Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly.
  153.  
  154. It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux.
  155.  
  156. Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor, etc."
