This report is a bit special: since we release every 6 weeks, there is no release this month. The next one is planned for the 12th of May. Therefore there are no code news, the work being done will be reported when it's released :)

However, like any Free Software project, Tails is not only about the code, so here are the news about the other parts of the project!

Documentation and website

User experience

  • On the ?ISO verification extension:

  • On the ?web assistant for getting started with Tails:

    • We finished a ?prototype for the 3rd iteration of the router (the set of introductory questions) and ?tested it with several people.
    • We started a discussion about several terminology issues.
    • We proposed a ?URL scheme, a ?JavaScript policy, and a ?compatibility list for Mac.
  • We published some guidelines for user testing.

Translation and internationalization

Given all the recent changes in the documentation, the translation statistics went a bit down. The German and French teams are working hard to keep up-to-date. The Portuguese team needs new translators to help :)
