On October 12, we started our yearly donation campaign. Today, we summarize what we achieved with your help in 2018 and renew our call for donations.

New features

  • We integrated VeraCrypt in the desktop to allow you to work with encrypted files across different operating systems (Windows, Linux, and macOS).

    This work was done upstream in GNOME and will be available outside of Tails in Debian 10 (Buster) and Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish).

  • Additional Software allows you to install additional software automatically when starting Tails.

    Add vlc to your additional software? 'Install Only Once' or 'Install Every Time'

  • We added a screen locker to give you some protection if you leave your Tails unattended, willingly or not.

  • We completely redesigned our download page and verification extension to make it easier to get and verify Tails. It is also now possible to verify Tails from Chrome.

Adoption

  • Tails was used approximately 22 000 times a day.

  • We did more usability work than ever before. Every new feature was tested with actual users to make sure Tails becomes easier to use.

  • We answered 1123 bug reports through our help desk and helped all these people to be safer online.

Under the hood

  • We released 11 new versions of Tails to continue offering improvements and security fixes as soon as possible, including 4 emergency releases. This year we've faced critical security issues like Spectre, Meltdown, EFAIL, and issues in Firefox and are working hard to always have your back covered!

  • We made the build of Tails completely reproducible, which brings even more trust in the ISO images that we are distributing, a faster release process, and slightly smaller upgrades.

  • We greatly diversified our sources of income. Thanks to all of you, the share of donations that we got from individuals increased from 17% to 34%. This made our organization more robust and independent.

Community

  • We published a social contract to clarify the social commitments that we stand by as Tails contributors.

  • We attended 12 conferences and connected to free software and Internet freedom communities in 8 different countries, including Chaos Computer Congress (Germany), FOSDEM (Belgium), Internet Freedom Festival (Spain), Tor Meeting (Italy and Mexico), Debian Conference (Taiwan), and CryptoRave (Brazil).

  • We grew our pool of regular contractors with 4 new workers, mostly to work on our core code and infrastructure. These include several very skilled Debian developers.

All of this is made possible by donations from people like you. And because they help us to plan our work, we particularly appreciate monthly and yearly donations, even the smallest ones.

If you liked our work in 2018, please take a minute to donate and make us thrive in 2019!

Every day, Tails helps thousands of people to safely use their computers online and offline.

Tails is available for free because we believe that nobody should have to pay to be protected from surveillance and censorship.

Tails is free software because if our source code was closed, there would be no way of verifying that it is secure.

In today's Internet, the most rewarded economical strategy is to rely on advertisement and tracking. But one of our reasons to exist is also to protect you against targeted advertisement, and we obviously don't want to rely on these sources of revenue.

The number of people using Tails is constantly growing and so is our responsibility to provide the easiest and safest tool possible. In 2019, we want Tails to be smoother to install, upgrade, use and to include even more security protection.

Making Tails costs us around 200 000€ each year. This is a really small number given all the work done, and many of us still do a lot of work for free in addition to paid hours.

Our money comes from:

  • Passionate people like you
  • Private companies like Mozilla, DuckDuckGo, or Lush
  • Foundations and NGOs like The Handshake Foundation or The ISC Project
  • Funds from the US government like the Open Technology Fund

Individuals: 35%,
Foundations & NGOs: 34%, Related to US government: 24%, Companies: 7%

We often hear complaints about software projects that are meant to fight surveillance, like Tor and Tails, getting funds from the US government. We share this concern and we will never be at ease as long as the well-being of our project depends on such funding.

This is why it's so important to be sustained by users like you, and our independence protected by your donations.

From anonymized statistics, we know that Tails is used more than 20 000 times every day. If each user gave $6, our fundraiser would be done in one day. The price of a USB stick is all we need.

But we know that many of the people who need Tails the most can't donate, because they would get in trouble for giving to an anti-surveillance tool like Tails, or simply because they don't have the money.

Last year we received 1 167 donations for a total of 101 644€. This year, we aim for 120 000€ and a larger number of donors.

Please consider taking a minute to donate to Tails today.

To check your list of additional software packages, choose Applications ▸ System Tool ▸ Additional Software.

Read our documentation on installing additional software.

VeraCrypt integration

To unlock VeraCrypt volume in Tails, choose Applications ▸ System Tool ▸ Unlock VeraCrypt Volumes.

The integration of VeraCrypt in the Files and Disks utilities was done upstream in GNOME and will be available outside of Tails in Debian 10 (Buster) and Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish).

Read our documentation on using VeraCrypt volumes.

News reading in Thunderbird

Thunderbird is now the official RSS and Atom news feed reader in Tails.

Liferea will be removed from Tails in version 3.12, early 2019.

Other changes

  • Improve the configuration of the persistent storage to make it easier to scroll and consistent with the GNOME guidelines.

Included software

  • Update Tor Browser to 8.0, based on Firefox 60 ESR.

  • Update Thunderbird from 52 to 60.

  • Update Tor to 0.3.4.7-rc.

  • Update Electrum to from 3.0.6 to 3.1.3.

Hardware support

The following updates make Tails work better on recent hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.):

  • Update Linux to 4.17 which also fixes the Foreshadow attack.

  • Update the DRM and Mesa libraries to improve support for some graphics cards.

  • Update the Intel and AMD microcodes and most firmware packages.

Fixed problems

  • Stop displaying the Enigmail setup wizard every time Tails is restarted. (#15693 and #15746)

  • Show a spinner while starting Tor Browser, Tails documentation, and WhisperBack. (#15101)

  • Use Tor Browser again for browsing the documentation offline. (#15720)

  • Show Synaptic and Root Terminal even when no administration password is set. (#11013)

  • Tails Installer

    • Link to upgrade documentation when upgrading. (#7904)
    • Hide the Reinstall option when the USB stick is too small. (#14810)
    • Correct the size of the USB stick in the confirmation dialog when reinstalling. (#15590)

Code

  • We successfully collaborated with the Tor Browser team to fix a severe issue with Tor Browser 8.0 in Tails, that was discovered shortly before the Tails 3.9 release. Thanks a lot to everyone who helped!

  • We fixed a number of regressions that were introduced in Tails 3.9, such as:

    • Fix the update of Additional Software. (#15978)
    • Fix opening VeraCrypt file containers using the Open With Unlock VeraCrypt Volumes of GNOME Files. (#15954)
    • Fix the display of the General tab in the preferences of Tor Browser. (#15917)
    • Fix displaying the help of GNOME Videos. (#15841)

Documentation and website

User experience

  • We did some stats on the amount of RAM on computers sending us WhisperBack reports.

    Between 5–10% of our users seem to have less than 3 GiB of RAM.

Infrastructure

  • We started planning the migration of our Redmine to a different hostname and a new VM.

  • We wrote a number of automated tests to ensure we notice important regressions in the VeraCrypt support introduced in Tails 3.9.

  • We completed our investigation of Dogtail's long-term viability. Our conclusion is that we can keep using it, should start contributing to the maintenance of the package in Debian, but invest as little as possible into Dogtail for now as our long-term concerns are not fully addressed.

  • We investigated what prevented us from giving more Tails developers access to our Jenkins CI platform so far. We've identified a few blockers, resolved them, and started giving such access more liberally. This should make Tails development work more pleasurable and efficient for a few more people.

  • The Tails sysadmin team discussed hiring a new team member, the profile of the person we will be looking for, and how we could share our work with them.

  • We made great progress towards hosting our website on our own infrastructure. The final steps and migration should happen by the end of the year.

Funding

  • We published our finances for 2017.

  • We prepared our end-of-year donation campaign and will launch it in the coming weeks.

  • We added the postal address of RiseupLabs to our donation page as a way of receiving US checks.

  • We removed Flattr as a donation method because it is not worth it (raised ~200€ in 3 years).

Tails Summit, 2018

Once a year a dozen or two Tails contributors meet in person to shape the project and define our priorities. This year, we met in August and enjoyed one week of discussions, skill sharing and hands-on work sessions. A great number of uninvited mosquitoes joined us as well but we managed to find efficient mitigation measures :)

Releases

Code

Documentation and website

We documented how to:

User experience

  • We presented a first version of our personas to the community and agreed on focusing on Riou, The Censorship Evader, as our primary persona.

  • We completed the collaboration with Simply Secure on the Tails identity (aka. "brand") and making it easier to understand what is Tails and how it works. This work lays the foundation to:

    We will report on this in more details later.

  • We improved the readability of our HTML tables. See for example graphics.

Hot topics on our help desk

Like in previous months, most users writing to Help Desk are having issues with hardware support.

  1. Several users reported hard or soft lockups with recent Dell XPS and other laptops with recent NVIDIA graphics cards. We're still waiting for more test results before we can document a workaround. (#15774)

  2. Some problems were also reported with some Intel graphics cards on Tails 3.9~rc1. This was fixed in Tails 3.9. (#15821)

  3. Many users still lose temporarily their persistence configuration. To fix this, see the documented workaround.

Funding

  • DeepOnion partnered with Tails and donated 0.154 btc.

  • Handshake Foundation partnered with Tails and donated $200 000.

Outreach

Upcoming events

  • intrigeri and sajolida will be at Tor meeting in Mexico City from September 29 to October 3 and will present Tails during the open days on October 2.

This version may be slower than usual to start from DVD.

See the list of long-standing issues.

How to test Tails 3.9~rc1?

Keep in mind that this is a test image. We tested that it is not broken in obvious ways, but it might still contain undiscovered issues.

But test wildly!

If you find anything that is not working as it should, please report to us on tails-testers@boum.org.

Bonus points if you first check if it is a known issue of this release or a longstanding known issue.

Upgrade from 3.8

  1. Start Tails 3.8 on a USB stick installed using Tails Installer and set an administration password.

  2. Run this command in a Terminal to select the "alpha" upgrade channel and start the upgrade:

    echo TAILS_CHANNEL=\"alpha\" | sudo tee -a /etc/os-release && \
         tails-upgrade-frontend-wrapper
    

    and enter the administration password when asked for the "password for amnesia".

  3. After the upgrade is installed, restart Tails and choose Applications ▸ Tails ▸ About Tails to verify that you are running Tails 3.9~rc1.

Download and install

You can install 3.9~rc1 by following our usual installation instructions, skipping the Download and verify step.

Tails 3.9~rc1 ISO image ?OpenPGP signature
Tails 3.9~rc1 torrent

Releases

  • Tails 3.9 is scheduled for September 5. Its release candidate is scheduled for August 17.

Code

We did most of the work needed to upgrade to Tor Browser 8, based on Firefox 60ESR.

We continued to work on including VeraCrypt in Tails.

We continued our work on creating a user interface for our Additional Software feature to make it easier to use.

We worked on new Debian packages for Torbirdy, Tails Installer and OnionShare.

We prepared a fix for a long standing bug in ikiwiki that makes our website render in a buggy way regularly.

We worked more on integrating our future web translation platform with our infrastructure. This platform is currently not production ready but is being tested and used by a few translators.

  • We wrote Git hooks for all machines and contributors using Git.

  • We wrote and improved several scripts that check the validity of PO files that we carry. We need these scripts to further automate our translation processes, hence all translators, humans and interfaces need to respect certain rules when committing PO files to our repository. This is currently not active and still needs to be tested more extensively.

  • We are working on ikiwiki, our website engine, to support adding translation files for non-active languages.

Documentation and website

We updated our installation instructions for Debian to:

  • Linux Mint 19

  • Tails Installer with no splash screen

User experience

We designed interfaces to:

  • Persist the screen locking password (#15641).

  • Attach screenshots to WhisperBack reports (#8660).

Hot topics on our help desk

  1. Users complained about GDM not starting (most of them with Intel GPU #15700).
  2. Some others were unable to use Wi-Fi (non supported USB adapters and #15520).

  3. Enigmail setup wizard #15693 generated some requests.

  4. And still a few lost persistence reports. Remember: we need the debugging info from a session in which the persistence seems to be lost, to be able to fix this. More information here.

Infrastructure

We asked Wikimedia to become our primary fallback download mirror, and they accepted. We'll implement this change in the coming months. Thank you Wikimedia!

We've updated our web translation platform to a recent version. The process went smoothly.

We started looking into the long-term viability of Dogtail, one of the key components of our automated testing framework.

Funding

  • We analyzed the results from last year's donation campaign.

    We got more money than in 2016 (101 664€, +34%) but from less donations (-43%).

Outreach

Past events

  • sajolida attended PETS.

  • Four of us attended DebConf in Hsinchu, Taiwan.

  • emmapeel attended a dev sprint with Tactical Tech about investigative journalist tools for Tails in Montenegro.

Upcoming events

  • sajolida will be at Tor meeting in Mexico City from September 29 to October 3 and will present Tails during the open days on October 2.

Posted 2018-08-16

You can help Tails! The beta version for the VeraCrypt support in Tails is ready for testing. We are very excited.

What's new in the Beta?

We worked to integrate VeraCrypt support into the existing GNOME workflow for unlocking encrypted volumes. As a result, most of the features already provided for LUKS volumes are now also provided for VeraCrypt volumes. This includes unlocking volumes via the GNOME Disks application and integration into the places sidebar in GNOME Files. If your file containers have the ".hc" file extension, they will be recognized as VeraCrypt volumes and can be easily unlocked in GNOME Files.

Additionally, we created a small application, VeraCrypt Mounter, which makes it easier to unlock VeraCrypt volumes, especially file containers that do not have the ".hc" extension.

How to test the Beta?

Download and install the ISO image on a USB stick or DVD, start it and try to unlock your existing VeraCrypt volumes.

We are interested in your feedback on bugs and usability of this feature.

  • Are there any steps that are not clear?
  • Did you run into technical issues?

Please send feedback emails to tails-testers@boum.org.

Get the Beta

VeraCrypt support in Tails beta ISO image

There is no signature available for this test ISO image.

Known issues

We've identified a list of known issues #14480 among which

  • Trying to unlock via the places sidebar using an incorrect password or keyfile results in a not very helpful error message #15663
  • Unlocking via the places sidebar doesn't provide any feedback #15664
  • No integration in the places sidebar of the file chooser dialog of some applications (including Tor Browser) #15667
