Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.16, is out.
All users must upgrade as soon as possible.
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.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
