Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.1.1, is out in the wild. This release fixes numerous security issues
Notable user-visible changes include:
Upgrade the web browser to 24.8.0esr-0+tails1~bpo70+1 (Firefox 24.8.0esr + Iceweasel patches + Torbrowser patches).
Add an I2P boot parameter. Without adding “i2p” to the kernel command line, I2P will not be accessible for the Live user. I2P was also upgraded to 0.9.14.1-1~deb7u+1
Upgrade Tor to 0.2.4.23-2~d70.wheezy+1
Upgrade Linux to 3.14.15-2
Prevent dhclient from sending the hostname over the network
Override the hostname provided by the DHCP server
It comes with all the usual suspects, Libre Office, Gimp, Audacity, PiTiVi etc…
I would also mention that memory usage is quite low which is what I have come to expect over the years from them…
So if you use tails its time to upgrade! You can download it here
Make sure you calculate the checksum!
