Tails 1.1.1. has been released

6. Sep 2014

To those who use Tails it should be no surprise that there was an update.

You are advised to upgrade as soon as you can.

The following has been changed:

  • Security fixes
    • Upgrade the web browser to 24.8.0esr-0+tails1~bpo70+1 (Firefox 24.8.0esr + Iceweasel patches + Torbrowser patches).
    • Add an I2P boot parameter. Without adding “i2p” to the kernel command line, I2P will not be accessible for the Live user. I2P was also upgraded to 0.9.14.1-1~deb7u+1, and stricter firewall rules are applied to it, among other security enhancements.
    • Upgrade Tor to 0.2.4.23-2~d70.wheezy+1 (fixes CVE-2014-5117).
    • Upgrade Linux to 3.14.15-2 (fixes CVE-2014-3534, CVE-2014-4667 and CVE-2014-4943).
    • Prevent dhclient from sending the hostname over the network (ticket #7688).
    • Override the hostname provided by the DHCP server (ticket #7769).
  • Bugfixes
    • Don’t ship OpenJDK 6: I2P prefers v7, and we don’t need both (ticket #7807).
    • Prevent Tails Installer from updating the system partition properties on MBR partitions (ticket #7716).
  • Minor improvements
    • Upgrade to Torbutton 1.6.12.1.
    • Install gnome-user-guide (ticket #7618).
    • Install cups-pk-helper (ticket #7636).
    • Update the SquashFS sort file, which should speed up boot from DVD (ticket #6372).
    • Compress the SquashFS more aggressively (ticket #7706) which should make the Tails ISO image smaller.
