A new release of of our live-cd/dvd is ready for download. Chnages in version 0.9.52:
Updates for add-ons: no proxy exceptions are possible for security reasons.
JonDoBrowser uses hunspell dictionaries for spellcheck.
A patch of TorBirdy enforces the recommendations for "on_startup_login = false" and "download_on_biff = false" for new accounts. Because of a bug in Thunderbird/Icedove the default settings don't apply for new accounts.
Fixed keyserver usage in Tor mode. SSL encryption for keyserver are enforced in general by GnuPG configuration of the live-cd. It is not possible to use Tor hidden HKP servers with this configuration. Now HKPS keyservers are used in Tor mode too.
Removed all proxy exception in JonDo mode and Tor mode for security reasons.
Pre-configured Pidgin accounts:
Added XMPP service of Calyx Institut.org (normal web and Tor hidden XMPP server).
Removed dukgo XMPP service because of bad SSL encryption.
Removed Wikileaks IRC because it was closed an anonop.us because it is down for a long time.
To use pre-configured Tor hidden services you have to start Tor with Vidalia, it is independent of default proxy configuration you can choose on Pidgin startup.
You can select Tor hidden servers for Electrum Bitcoin client on startup.
Some small improvements for Italian localization.
