Being discussed in Whonix Forum:
The new forum link is:
You can also always find the link to Whonix forum on Whonix's Homepage: https://whonix.org
The new forum is much easier to use over Tor. Posts do not get lost anymore while posting.
Has been asked in the forum:
A new design page has been created to answer that question:
Thanks to sourceforge for adding Whonix to the list of Projects of the Week!
We've worked hard and are now finally online. Please test and report an issues you may have.
New Whonix Website:
Alternative Tor Hidden Service :
Content is now organized in mediawiki, which makes maintenance and editing much easier. In comparison to the old sourceforge wiki, which does not support SSL, also site security has improved a lot.  We now have SSL, HSTS, .onion and so forth.... read more
Its been a while since the latest release of Whonix. Was a busy and effective development time. The name of this testers-only version is: whonix-97adretemp.
This release isn't perfect yet, but it needs your feedback! Not everything has been documented already. However, I haven't found any anonymity related bugs. There are minor annoyances and minor missing things, such as desktop icons. Regular users easily annoyed by bugs are advised to stick with Whonix 0.5.6 until a new stable version of Whonix gets released.... read more
Only 1 in 22 persons (or worse) who download Whonix verify signatures using OpenPGP as recommend on the download page.
Therefore, optionally we may from now start providing BitTorrent downloads. BitTorrent has several advantages and disadvantages.
The good news is, if you download the .torrent file from a HTTPS secured page, such as whonix.org (migration from sourceforge to whonix.org still in progress, there will be a news about whonix.org later), in theory, the download won't be as safe as if you used OpenPGP verification, but at least as secure as HTTPS.... read more
The project is coded in Linux shell scripts (bash). It currently has only one person constantly adding new code and maintaining all its aspects. (Code, research, user support, documentation writing, communication with upstream, releases.)... read more
Now new, not written by me (adrelanos). Still useful for Whonix and might be useful for others. Therefore I made a backup and share it on github:
No development/maintenance on tor-ctrl planed. Please feel free to take over development/maintenance!
Whonix is an anonymous operating system. Whonix-Gateway is a Tor-Gateway, which routes all its clients traffic through the Tor anonymity network.
Whonix Physical Isolation users might who are also interested in Raspberry Pi might be happy to hear, that there is some progress documenting how to use RP to host Whonix-Gateway.
An anonymous user posted instructions in Whonix Forum, in case you're interested, see:
When you run whonixcheck or Whonix's internal torbrowser updater, if you use Whonix 0.5.6 32 bit users (almost everyone, all who downloaded Whonix, not people who made their own 64 bit builds), you will see:
Currently installed version: 2.3.25-8 Online detected version : 2.3.25-9
And when you try to update.

This will sign you up for e-mail notifications. New issues or comments to existing issues will then be mailed to you.
Next version of Whonix might include an auto updater.
In any case, it will be made as easy as possible to disable it.
At the moment its enabled by default.
With enough feedback I could get talked into leaving it disabled by default and only notify about updates and then letting people enable it.
Please also leave feedback, if you think it's fine as it stands and should be enabled by default.
The documentation for next Whonix version is here:
