If you are a Tails enthusiast, testing ISO images of upcoming releases and future features is a great way to make Tails stronger. If you like playing with new features, identifying problems, and breaking things, then consider subscribing to the email@example.com mailing list.
This is where we announce and report back on:
- Release candidates for future releases
- Feature previews for upcoming improvements
Only use them for testing purposes.
Two weeks before each release, we publish a release candidate. It has the same features as the upcoming release but needs testing to validate that they are working correctly.
What you can test on them:
- The new features, as described in the Changelog, linked from the announcement.
- Any other feature of Tails, for example the ones listed in our manual test suite.
Every now and then, we also publish ISO images to test more specifically a new feature we are working on.
They are available on http://nightly.tails.boum.org/ and are announced together with specific testing instructions.
