Releases

The following changes were introduced in Tails 2.4:
  • We enabled the automatic account configuration of Icedove which discovers the correct parameters to connect to your email provider based on your email address. We improved it to rely only on secure protocol and we are working on sharing these improvements with Mozilla so that users of Thunderbird outside Tails can benefit from them as well.
  • Remove the preconfigured #tails IRC channel. Join us on XMPP instead!
  • Always display minimize and maximize buttons in titlebars. (#11270)
  • Remove GNOME Tweak Tool and hledger. You can add them back using the Additional software packages persistence feature.
  • Use secure HKPS OpenPGP key server in Enigmail.
  • Harden our firewall by rejecting RELATED packets and restricting Tor to only send NEWTCP syn packets. (#11391)
  • Harden our kernel by:
    • Setting various security-related kernel options: slab_nomerge slub_debug=FZ mce=0 vsyscall=none. (#11143)
    • Removing the .map files of the kernel. (#10951)
  • Update the DRM and Mesa graphical libraries. This should fix recent problems with starting Tails on some hardware. (#11303)
  • Some printers that stopped working in Tails 2.0 should work again. (#10965)
  • Enable Packetization Layer Path MTU Discovery for IPv4. This should make the connections to obfs4 Tor bridges more reliable. (#9268)
  • Remove our custom ciphers and MACs settings for SSH. This should fix connectivity issues with other distributions such as OpenBSD. (#7315)
  • Fix the translations of Tails Upgrader. (#10221)
  • Fix displaying the details of a circuit in Onion Circuits when using Tor bridges. (#11195)

Code

  • segfault sent his 3rd and 4th reports for his GSoC on Tails Server.
  • GoodCrypto sent more patches to convert our custom bash scripts to Python.

User experience

We continued discussing:

Infrastructure

  • Our test suite covers 208 scenarios, 1 more that in May.
