Tails 1.1 is out
Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.1, is out.
Notable user-visible changes include:
- Rebase on Debian Wheezy
- Upgrade literally thousands of packages.
- Migrate to GNOME3 fallback mode.
- Install LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice.
- Major new features
- UEFI boot support, which should make Tails boot on modern hardware and Mac computers.
- Replace the Windows XP camouflage with a Windows 8 camouflage.
- Bring back VirtualBox guest modules, installed from Wheezy backports. Full functionality is only available when using the 32-bit kernel.
- Security fixes
- Fix quick search in Tails Greeter's Other languages window (Closes: ticket #5387)
- Minor improvements
- Don't install Gobby 0.4 anymore. Gobby 0.5 has been available in Debian since Squeeze, now is a good time to drop the obsolete 0.4 implementation.
- Require a bit less free memory before checking for upgrades with Tails Upgrader. The general goal is to avoid displaying "Not enough memory available to check for upgrades" too often due to over-cautious memory requirements checked in the wrapper.
- Whisperback now sanitizes attached logs better with respect to DMI data, IPv6 addresses, and serial numbers (ticket #6797, ticket #6798, ticket #6804).
- Install the BookletImposer PDF imposition toolkit.
