Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.16, is out.

All users must upgrade as soon as possible.

# Changes

Notable user-visible changes include:

  * Minor improvements

    * Replace the too-easy-to-misclick shutdown button with a better "Shutdown Helper" applet.
    * Display `~/Persistent` in GNOME Places and Gtk file chooser.
    * Install dictionaries for a few languages.
    * Set Unsafe Browser's window title to "Unsafe Browser".
    * Install ekeyd to support the EntropyKey.
    * Install font for Sinhala script.
    * Update Poedit to 1.5.4.
    * Expose Vidalia's "broken onion" icon less.
    * Hide the persistence setup launchers in kiosk mode.

  * Bugfixes

    * Disable IPv6 on all network interfaces. This is a workaround for the IPv6 link-local multicast leak that was recently discovered.
    * Tails may previously have been able to list GPT partitions labelled "TailsData" on hard drives (!) as valid persistence volumes... this is now fixed.
    * Fix SCIM in the autostarted web browser.
    * Talk of DVD, not of CD, in the shutdown messages.
    * Make tordate work in bridge mode with an incorrect clock.

  * Iceweasel

    * Update iceweasel to 10.0.12esr-1+tails1.
    * Set the homepage to the news section on the Tails website.
    * Hide the iceweasel add-on bar by default.
    * Don't hide the AdBlock-Plus button in the add-on bar anymore.
    * Don't install xul-ext-monkeysphere anymore.

  * Localization

    * tails-greeter: add German translation, update Portuguese (Brasil) and Russian ones.
    * tails-persistence-setup: update French, German and Italian translations.

Plus the usual bunch of bug reports and minor improvements.
