The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.10.1, is out.

This is a bugfix-only release mainly aimed at fixing serious bugs and security issues.

All users must upgrade as soon as possible.


Notable user-visible changes include:

  • Iceweasel

    • Make Startpage the default web search engine. Scroogle does not look reliable enough these days.
  • Software

    • Upgrade WhisperBack to 1.5.1 (update link to bug reporting documentation).
    • Update MAT to 0.2.2-2~bpo60+1 (fixes a critical bug in the GUI).
  • Hardware support

    • Upgrade Linux kernel to 3.2.1-2
  • Time synchronization Serious rework that should fix most, if not all, of the infamous time-sync' related bugs some Tails users have experienced recently.

    • Make htpdate more resilient by using three server pools, and allowing some failure ratio.
    • Set time from Tor's unverified-consensus if needed.
    • Set time to middle of [valid-after, fresh-until] from consensus.
    • Many robustness, performance and fingerprinting-resistance improvements.
    • Display time-sync' notification much earlier.
  • Miscellaneous

    • Fix access to "dumb" git:// protocol by using a connect-socks wrapper as GIT_PROXY_COMMAND.
    • SSH client: fix access to SSH servers on the Internet by correcting Host / ProxyCommand usage.
    • Pidgin: use OFTC hidden service to workaround Tor blocking.
    • Claws Mail: disable draft autosaving. When composing PGP encrypted email, drafts are saved back to the server in plaintext. This includes both autosaved and manually saved drafts.
    • tails-security-check-wrapper: avoid eating all memory when offline.
