How to create a valid Whonix ™ News File[edit]

.

gpg --verify whonix_news.asc

Using Maintainer Script[edit]

Extra implementation info[edit]

Signing and verification (as sanity check) of whonix_news [archive] is automated by upload_whonix_news [archive].

50_check-whonix-news [archive] will find out the current installing version by:

## Read only FIRST line.
read -r INSTALLED_WHONIX_VERSION < /usr/local/share/whonix/version
## Remove ALL spaces.
INSTALLED_WHONIX_VERSION="${INSTALLED_WHONIX_VERSION//[[:space:]]}"

While phrasing the whonix_news, it is not required to remove the OpenPGP Signature, because the function verify_whonix_news in 50_check-whonix-news [archive] will use gpg --decrypt to get plain text, which will result in the Whonix ™ News File Format.

Changelog[edit]

0.1 to 0.2

  • /usr/share/whonix/version changed to /usr/local/share/whonix/version
