Draft release notes

......@@ -12,15 +12,71 @@ upgrade as soon as possible.
## New features
- We enabled the automatic account configuration of *Icedove* which
discovers the correct parameters to connect to your email provider
based on your email address. We improved it to rely only on secure
protocol and we are working on sharing these improvements with Mozilla
so that users of Thunderbird outside Tails benefit from them as well.

## Upgrades and changes
- Update *Tor Browser* to
[6.0](https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-browser-60-released) based
on Firefox 45.
- Remove the preconfigured `#tails` IRC channel. [[Join us on XMPP
instead!|support/chat]]
- Always display minimize and maximize buttons in all windows.
([[!tails_ticket 11270]])
- Remove *GNOME Tweak Tool* and *hledger*. You can add them back using
the [[*Additional software
packages*|doc/first_steps/persistence/configure#additional_software]]
persistence feature.
- Use secure HKPS OpenPGP key server in *Enigmail*.
- Harden our firewall by rejecting `RELATED` packets and restricting Tor
to only send NEW TCP syn packets. ([[!tails_ticket 11391]])
- Harden our kernel by:
* Setting various kernel boot options: `slab_nomerge slub_debug=FZ
mce=0 vsyscall=none`. ([[!tails_ticket 11143]])
* Removing the kernel <span class="filename">.map</span> files.
([[!tails_ticket 10951]])
## Fixed problems
- Update the *DRM* and *Mesa* graphical libraries. This should fix some
recent problems with starting Tails on some hardware. ([[!tails_ticket 11303]])
- Some printers that stopped working in Tails 2.0 should work again.
([[!tails_ticket 10965]])
- Enable Packetization Layer Path MTU Discovery for IPv4. This should
fix some connections to `obfs4` Tor bridges. ([[!tails_ticket 9268]])
- Remove our custom ciphers and MACs settings for SSH. This should fix
connectivity issues with other distributions such as OpenBSD.
([[!tails_ticket #7315]])

- Fix displaying the details of a circuit in *Onion Circuits* when using
Tor bridges. ([[!tails_ticket 11195]])
