Prevent Iceweasel from displaying a warning when leaving HTTPS web sites.
Make Iceweasel use the correct, localized search engine.
Fix Git access to https:// repositories.
Install Dasher, a predictive text entry tool.
Add a wrapper around TrueCrypt which displays a warning about it soon being deprecated in Tails.
Remove Pidgin libraries for all protocols but IRC and Jabber/XMPP. Many of the other protocols Pidgin support are broken in Tails and haven't got any security auditting.
Disable the pre-defined Pidgin accounts so they do not auto-connect on Pidgin start.
Include information about Alsa in WhisperBack reports.
Explicitly restrict access to ptrace. While this setting was enabled by default in Debian's Linux 3.9.6-1, it will later disabled in 3.9.7-1. It's unclear what will happen next, so let's explicitly enable it ourselves.
Do not display dialog when a message is sent in Claws Mail.
Many translation updates all over the place.
Merge all Tails-related POT files into one, and make use of intltoolize for better integration with Transifex.
All these issues are fixed in Git and will be fixed in Tails 0.20.
