Description

This will be the first 4.x version that's officially supported, as in:

  • Once it's out, it'll get security support just like 3.x.
  • Every automated test suite scenario will have passed at least once (worst case, manually).
  • It must pass the subset of our manual test suite that's about safety guarantees Tails claims to make.

Tails contributors and enthusiasts will be encouraged to use it in production.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri about 1 month ago

Current plan: release this at the same time as 3.15, on 2019-07-09. I've assigned myself as a fallback for the RM'ing work, but I certainly would not mind if anonym took this over, especially since it's not 100% clear yet whether kibi will be in a position to RM 3.15 in the end.

For now, we're tracking the blockers as 4.0 tickets with priority >> normal. We'll see how it works.

sajolida, I think we'll need a dedicated blog post + tweet, to give this more exposure than a mere call for testing on -testers@.

Actually, we don't have to release this at the same time as 3.15: any time in the following week or so would work. But if I need to be involved, 2019-07-09 works best: I'll be mostly unavailable after that.
