Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, 1.4 Released

Tails developers announced release of Tails 1.4, the latest release of Debian based Free GNU/Linux distribution, that features a collection of tools that provide users the ability to browse internet securely and anonymously. Current release of Tails 1.4 includes a lot of bug fixes, and it's highly recommended to upgrade to this release.

According to release announcement, following are some notable features of Tails 1.4.
  • Tor Browser 4.5 now has a security slider that you can use to disable browser features, such as JavaScript, as a trade-off between security and usability. The security slider is set to low by default to provide the same level of security as previous versions and the most usable experience.
    We disabled in Tails the new circuit view of Tor Browser 4.5 for security reasons. You can still use the network map of Vidalia to inspect your circuits.
  • Tails OpenPGP Applet now has a shortcut to the gedit text editor, thanks to Ivan Bliminse.
  • Paperkey lets you print a backup of your OpenPGP secret keys on paper.
