GnuPG key transition – Update 1

I’ve got a new gnupg key. The full announcement can be read here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Adrelanos

Update 1:
As a commenter pointed out, the old link could not be verified due to a bad signature. This is because mailing list archives replace @ with _at_ and therefore disrupt the message integrity.

Whonix 7 Gateway connection issues

When upgrading to Tor 0.2.4.19-1~d79.jessie+1 (using sudo apt-get dist-upgrade), your Tor connection may go down. There is a temporary workaround.

Currently broken due to changes by torproject.org. You have to manually update Tor Browser in meanwhile:

Forum help thread:
[[Special:AWCforum/st/id262/updating_TOR_browser_error...html]]

Already fixed in git. Due to lack of a release manager and testers it will take some time until we can push an update.

Domain Update

The Whonix team is proud to announce our new secondary .onion domain: http://kkkkkkkkkk63ava6.onion

It should now be easier to remember the domain name. This was a suggestion by anon.

Our old .onion domain will remain available for a while.

(The purpose of the .onion domain is to offer an alternative end-to-end encrypted connection to whonix.org, not to hide the location of the server.)

Beginning from Whonix 7.4.0 (not released yet), Whonix’s build script has been adapted to build from snapshot.debian.org instead of from the more popular ftp.us.debian.org. This has pros and cons, which are discussed here:
