Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.12.1, is out.

This is a [brown paper bag release][1] aimed at fixing two major problems introduced in Tails 0.12. While upgrading is recommended, it's not strictly necessary for users that haven't experienced any issues with Tails 0.12.

# Changes

  * Iceweasel

    * Upgrade Torbutton to 1.4.6.
    * Upgrade AdBlock Plus to 2.1.
    * Update AdBlock patterns.

  * Hardware support

    * Upgrade Linux to 3.2.21-3 (linux-image-3.2.0-3-486).

  * Software

    * Install python-pdfrw to re-add PDF support to the MAT.
    * Upgrade tails-greeter to 0.7.1, which fixes the race condition that broke administration password and locale settings on some systems.

  * Boot

    * Remove the Tails specific plymouth theme. The theme interfers heavily with the boot process on some hardware.

Plus the usual bunch of minor bug reports and improvements.

See the [online Changelog][2] for technical details.
