The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.5, is out. This is the first release since the project has been renamed.

Tons of bugs were fixed, including:

  • A trick workarounds the nasty bug that often prevented the system to connect to the Tor network.
  • New windows don't open in background anymore.
  • Memory wiping at shutdown is now lightning fast and does not prevent the computer to halt anymore.
  • onBoard now correctly autodetects the keyboard layout... at least once some keys have been pressed.
  • and more!

Other notable changes include:

  • Tor
  • Vidalia 0.2.8
  • Claws Mail 3.7.5 with OpenPGP support
  • Pidgin automatically connects to with a randomized nickname, which allows to easily join our new chatroom.
  • At shutdown time, only prompt to remove CD; just halt when booted from a USB stick.
  • User settings ($HOME) are now generated in a programmatic way: no more ugly binary files in our source code!
  • Forbid any IPv6 communication with the outside.
  • Added some wifi drivers: Ralink rt2570, rt2860 and Broadcom STA.

... and of course the usual bunch of software security updates.

See the online Changelog for details.
