This report covers the activity of Tails in April 2018.

Everything in this report is public.

A. VeraCrypt support in GNOME

A.4 Add VeraCrypt support to udisks

Our udisks pull request #495 has been merged upstream so this deliverable is now completed.

A.6 Add VeraCrypt support to GNOME Files

We added support to unlock VeraCrypt containers via the unlock dialog opened by gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor, which now allows unlocking encrypted volumes via GNOME Files or when the storage device is plugged in (#15218).

A.10 Port to the latest version of GNOME

Instead of developing for the GNOME version we use in Tails and forward-porting our patches, we decided to develop for the latest version of GNOME and backport the patches to the version we use in Tails. Therefore, we backported our udisks and GNOME Disks patches (#15253, #15515) and created Debian packages to use them in Tails (#15522, #15523).

B. Additional software

B.4 Implement backend and GUI

We polished a bit the wording of the persistent volume configuration GUI. We fixed issues with the early implementation (#15431, #15430, #15386, #15382, #15380)

We also identified and fixed a regression introduced as part of the initial implementation of this activity.

We are now working on releasing a beta version for wider testing of this new feature (#14599).

B.6 Write user documentation

We wrote a draft of the user documentation (#14589).

B.7 User testing

We prepared the user testing that will happen in the first week of May (#14591).
