The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.7.2, is out.

This is a bugfix-only release mainly aimed at fixing serious security issues in bundled software. All users must upgrade as soon as possible.

Changes

Notable user-visible changes include:

  • Iceweasel

    • Disable Torbutton's external application launch warning. ... which advises using Tails. Tails is running Tails.
    • FoxyProxy: install from Debian instead of the older one we previously shipped.
  • Software

    • Upgrade Linux kernel to Debian's 2.6.32-34squeeze1: fixes tons of bugs, closes a few security holes as well.
    • haveged: install an official Debian backport instead of a custom backport.
    • unrar: install the version from Debian's non-free repository. Users report unrar-free does not work well enough.

Plus the usual bunch of minor bug reports and improvements.

See the online Changelog for technical details.

I want to try it / to upgrade!
