  1. Hello!

    As requested, I’ve been running the jessie-proposed-updates during the last three days.

    Operative System:

    Qubes 3.2 RC2

    Running Whonix VMs:

    1. sys-Whonix: a crucial element in my Qubes infrastructure, since I use it for upgrading all the templates.
    2. anon-Whonix: browsing (Tor Browser 6.5a2-hardened)
    3. irc: chatting with friends.



    Kind of tests performed:

    Daily use + Whonix Check on any single VM.


    No issues or anomalies detected. My laptop is running just fine.

    That’s it! I hope this kind of report is OK.

    However, if Whonix team need to know something of more specific, I will be glad to help.

  2. Thank you!

    These packages have now been migrated into Whonix jessie (stable) repository.

  3. I’ve been using it lightly for a month with 3.2RC2. Only app I’ve used is Torbrowser and that’s working good. Trying it out with the VPN VM now.
    There are far less UI warnings… its a little disquieting. :slight_smile:
