  • Assignee set to anonym

(It's Foundations Team's job, and generally anonym takes care of this area.)

#2 Updated by anonym 3 months ago

  • Target version changed from 2019 to Tails_3.3

We'll have to migrate to the new Tor Launcher when XUL is deprecated in November.

#3 Updated by anonym 3 months ago

We might want to consider switching to anon-connection-wizard instead of the new Tor Launcher, since it might be what we can implement our long-term vision in.

Seeing my work may potentially be useful to Tails community makes me really happy.

For people who would like to keep up with the anon-connection-wizard development, [this post](https://forums.whonix.org/t/graphical-gui-whonix-setup-wizard-anon-connection-wizard-technical-discussion/650/303) may be useful.

I have watched this ticket and please let me know if there is anything else I can help with!

Thank you very much!

  • Target version changed from Tails_3.3 to Tails_3.5

I think we only have to do that in time for when we ship Tor Browser based on ESR 59 so there's time.

  • Target version changed from Tails_3.5 to Tails_3.6

So I have asked when the stable Tor Browser series will switch to the WebExtension-based Tor Launcher, and got the answer that it "definitely won't happen in the 7.x series (which means not before we switch to a new ESR)". [source]

Ack, and ESR 59 is released in March at the same time as Tails 3.6, so we at least got until then (but I wouldn't be surprised if it's pushed closer to when ESR 52 is EOL:ed, or even when 59.2 is released in the beginning of July).
