    • segfault sent his first and second report on his GSoC on Tails Server.

    • We've prepared a patched version of Icedove and Torbirdy for the next Tails release. Icedove users can now use the automatic configuration wizard and by default, requests will be done only over secure protocols. Other Icedove improvements include using a hkps keyserver in Enigmail, default to POP if persistence is enabled, IMAP if not. We've disabled remote email account creation. All our patches are being upstreamed to Thunderbird and Torbirdy.
    Documentation and website

    User experience


    • Our channel #tails for user support moved from IRC to XMPP. For further details read our support page.

    • The new mirror pool is now used by Tails Upgrader, by users who download Tails without using our Download And Verification Extension for Firefox (aka. DAVE), for any download that is not supported by DAVE (e.g. release candidates), and for downloads started from a web browser that has JavaScript disabled. So, in summary two of the use cases of this work are covered already, and only the "downloading with DAVE" use case is left to complete. As of May 31st we now have 36 active mirrors.

    • Mediapart, a French online investigative journal that uses Tails for their work, is the first media organization to answer positively our call to support Tails financially. The terms of our partnership are still being discussed.

    • We submitted a proposal to fund reproducible builds to the Mozilla Open Source Support.

    Upcoming events

    • jvoisin and fr33tux are going to give a talk on Tails at Nuit du Hack
