The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 0.8, is out.

All users must upgrade as soon as possible.


Notable user-visible changes include:

  • Tor
  • I2P 0.8.8
  • Linux 3.0.0
  • Iceweasel 3.5.16-9
  • Torbutton 1.4.3-1

  • More random looking nicks in Pidgin.
  • Replace the onBoard virtual keyboard with Florence.
  • PiTIVi non-linear audio/video editor.
  • Support arbitrary DNS queries.
  • Use XZ compression to get much smaller ISO images and a bit faster boot.

Plus the usual bunch of minor bug reports and improvements.

See the online Changelog for technical details.

I want to try it / to upgrade!

See the Getting started page.

Known issue

The "erase memory on boot medium removal" feature works when booting from USB, but does not work (i.e. the CD is not ejected) on some hardware. Your mileage may vary.
