This release fixes known security vulnerabilities. You should upgrade as soon as possible.

Changes and updates

  • Remove "Synchronizing the system's clock" notification when connecting to Tor network

    We removed this notification because it didn't recommend a specific action for users to take and it was unclear. It might have given users the impression that they should alter their UTC clock settings. (#7439)

  • Remove Poedit

    We now use Weblate to provide translated text for Tails and the Tails website, so Poedit isn't as necessary. To install Poedit in Tails, see our guide on Additional Software (#18236)

  • Update Tor Browser to 10.0.16.

  • Update Thunderbird to 78.9.0-1.

  • Update some Intel and Linux firmware packages. This should improve support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, and so on).

Fixed problems

  • Use more reliable Debian repositories

    Tails now connects to the APT repositories of Debian using their HTTPS address instead of their .onion address, for increased reliability with the Additional Software feature. We left other Tails and Tor Project APT onion sources as is. (#17993)

  • Display an error message when the Upgrader fails to download the signing key. This has been a silent error since 4.14. (#18238)

For more details, read our changelog.

Known issues

  • Automatic upgrades are broken from Tails 4.14 and earlier.

    To upgrade from Tails 4.14 or earlier, you can either:

    • Do a manual upgrade.

    • Fix the automatic upgrade from a terminal. To do so:

      1. Start Tails and set up an administration password.

      2. In a terminal, execute the following command:

        torsocks curl --silent https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/raw/master/config/chroot_local-includes/usr/share/tails/certs/lets-encrypt-r3.pem \
        | sudo tee --append /usr/local/etc/ssl/certs/tails.boum.org-CA.pem \
        && systemctl --user restart tails-upgrade-frontend
        

        This command is a single command that wraps across several lines. Copy and paste the entire block at once and make sure that it executes as a single command.

      3. Approximately 30 seconds later, you should be prompted to upgrade to the latest version of Tails. If no prompt appear, you might already be running the latest version of Tails.

See the list of long-standing issues.

Get Tails 4.18

To upgrade your Tails USB stick and keep your persistent storage

Thank you so much, on behalf of our entire team, to everyone who donated during our end-of-year campaign!

We raised $132 750 from 2 799 donors. That's an amazing 40% more than last year and 30% of our yearly budget. These excellent numbers mean more sustainability for Tails and ultimately better tools for you and all our users.

Here is what we did since October with your help:

  • From the number of automatic upgrades, we know that Tails was used 20% more in 2020 than in 2019. It's our biggest increase since 2016.

  • We designed and tested usability improvements to the Persistent Storage and the connection to Tor.

    We know from previous surveys and usability research that these are 2 critical aspects to improve the usability of Tails, especially for less technical users and people experiencing heavy online censorship, for example in Asia.

    Your donations will help us implement as many of these improvements as possible during 2021. You can already have a look at the new designs in our blueprints on the Persistent Storage and the connection to Tor.

    We always test the usability of major features with users before releasing them. It was particularly exciting this time because we tested our design remotely using paper prototyping with people in Greece, Mexico, Italy, Uganda, Germany, Ireland, and Malaysia!

  • We simplified the verification procedure on our download page by replacing the Tails Verification extension with similar JavaScript code that runs directly on the download page.

    This simple usability improvement had a huge impact and 60% more downloads are verified and secure now than with the verification extension.

  • We automated the most time-consuming parts of our release process.

    We estimate that we divided roughly by 2 the amount of time, work, and stress needed for us to publish a new version of Tails.

    For you, this means a quicker response time in case of important security vulnerability and more time available for us to work on new features and improvements.

  • We hired a new core developer, boyska.

    boyska has very strong experience in the technical aspects of operating systems and software development, and also in the social implications of technology, Free Software, and privacy.

    boyska will be key to bringing more improvements to Tails more quickly.

Thanks again for supporting Tails!

This month we have published our plans for 2021, make sure to check them if you are interested on the next steps for Tails.

This is the first time ever that there's more than a million Tails boots in a single month! How do we know this?

Releases

Tails 4.15 was released on January 26:

  • Fix support for the Ledger hardware wallets in Electrum. (#18080)
  • Fix sharing mobile data, also called USB tethering, on iOS 14 or later. (#18097)
  • Clarify the error message when starting from a USB stick that is too small. (#18073)

Tails 4.15.1 was released on January 28 (emergency release):

This emergency release fixed a major security vulnerability in sudo, CVE-2021-3156, that allowed normal users to gain root privileges.

Tails 4.16 is scheduled for February 23.

Code

  • #18123: We started implementing changes to make the onion-grater more robust. Onion-grater is a tor controller filter that makes it possible for us to write fine-grained rules about what a particular application can do with tor. The controller allows changing almost everything about how tor runs, so we need to be careful about letting applications access it. For the curious: the solution involves network namespaces.

  • This work is also leading to fix other issues, because until now onion-grater was unable to handle lost connections to the tor controller, as in #11535 where tor bridge mode fails when using Unsafe Browser to get bridges, or #16993 where the circuit view is broken on the Tor Browser after reconnecting to the tor network.

  • We started work to fix the keyboard selection that is broken with some languages.

Documentation and website

User experience

We have been doing usability testing for our future work on rewriting the Persistent Storage into Python.

Hot topics on our help desk

  1. Users still have problems importing GPG keys.

  2. Users have reported some problems doing backups. We are happy that more users are doing backups, although we are not sure still of what is happening. See here for more information, and please comment if you had problems while doing backups as well.

  3. Some users get a weird 'initramfs no system found' error, and cannot boot with USB sticks configured as fixed disks. We thought this was not a common problem anymore, but apparently this is still happening with many USB sticks. Hopefully our new documentation about starting Tails from an external hard disk will help them.

Outreach

  • We have been talking about outsourcing Tails merchandising as we are not doing any merchandising lately because of the effort, but many users would like to support Tails in this way. More information at #18141.

In 2021, we want to focus on improving some of the very core features of Tails, especially for censorship circumvention.

To support our work in 2021, take a minute now to donate and fight surveillance and censorship!

Censorship circumvention

We want to completely redesign how to start Tor and configure Tor bridges.

This will make it easier for people in countries where accessing Tor is blocked to circumvent censorship. According to data from the Tor project, the top 5 countries by users of Tor bridges are Russia, Iran, the US, Belarus, and China.

Persistent Storage

We want to improve the interface of the Persistent Storage settings.

Improving the Persistent Storage was your top priority when we surveyed our users in July. We want to start by improving the usability of its core features and rewriting this 9-year-old Perl application into Python GTK+. This will make it possible to improve it faster in the future.

We also want to make it possible to persist Tor bridges.

Security and maintenance

To improve the security of all applications in Tails, we want to migrate to Wayland. Wayland is a new display system for Linux that better controls how each application interacts with the rest of the system.

For example, Wayland will fix how the Unsafe Browser can be used to deanonymize you.

We will also release Tails 5.0, based on Debian 11 (Bullseye) at the end of 2021. It will bring new versions of most of the software included in Tails.

Help us fight surveillance and censorship

All our work is made possible by donations from people like you. We particularly appreciate monthly and yearly donations, even the smallest ones. Because they help us plan our work, they are the most valuable for the sustainability of Tails.

To support our work in 2021, take a minute now to donate and fight surveillance and censorship!

In memoriam of Karsten Loesing

We join the Tor project in mourning Karsten Loesing. Our sincere condolences to Karsten's family and colleagues.

Those of us who were lucky enough to cross Karsten's path remember him as a very kind, thoughtful, and smart person.

Rest in peace, Karsten.

Releases

The following changes were introduced in Tails 4.15:

  • Add support for the Ledger hardware wallets in Electrum. (#15353)

  • Remove the Unifont font. (!263)

  • Fix Additional Software by updating the APT key for deb.torproject.org. (#18042)

  • Fix changing the administration password stored in the Persistent Storage. (#18018)

  • Fix opening the Persistent Storage of another Tails USB stick in the Files browser. (#18050)

  • Restore automatically a GnuPG public keyring from its backup when it gets corrupt. (#17807)

🎉 New core developer 🎂

Today, we celebrate the arrival in our Foundations Team of a new member: boyska. His skills and experience in operating systems, software development, and collective projects will:

  • Accelerate development of new features, user experience improvements, and bug fixes.

  • Make our day-to-day maintenance work more sustainable.

    This work has no visible impact most of the time, except that Tails is still alive after more than a decade, and here to stay!

  • Decrease our reliance on a tiny number of key persons.

    This is one important step we're taking, among others, towards making Tails a healthier project.

I'm boyska, a fellow who always loved computers. When I realized the profound social implications of technology, I tried to make my part: that's how I got involved with free software, security and hacking in general. A post-it note in my brain remembers me that computing should be fun, not scary.

Additionally, we would like to thank:

  • the thousands of people whose donation allowed us to fund this new position

    Please consider donating today to fight surveillance and censorship.

  • the dozens of people who applied to this job offer

    It's been truly heart-warming to see so many great applicants interested in working with us.

Welcome, boyska! :)

Code

  • We implemented a mechanism for adding a "Don't Show Again" button to some notifications. We'll try it out in Tails 4.15 for the warning displayed when starting Tails in a virtual machine; then we'll iterate from there.

  • We finished porting our Python code to Python 3. Yeah!

  • We made plans for rewriting Persistent Storage in Python, making it compatible with Wayland, and redesigning its UX from scratch.

Documentation and website

User experience

  • Started analyzing the search queries on our website, following a methodology by Susan Farrell. (#11649)

  • Started preparing the redesign of the Persistent Storage that we'll work on in January. (#15572)

  • Investigated what it would take to stop distributing ISO images:

    • #18047: Users unintentionally install ISO to USB instead of the .img
    • #18054: Distribute USB images by default for all virtual machines
    • #18055: Stop distributing ISO images
  • Added some depth to the buttons on our website. (#15111)

Funding

Grants

  • Our proposal to the UXFund to work on a replacement for Tor Launcher was approved buy scaled down by 20%.

Donations

  • Received 57.8k€ from 88 donations at CCT since the beginning of the campaign.

    It's 70% more donations, that's the important part, and 599% more money thanks to a 50k€ donation from some crypto trading company, that's the big cherry on top of the cake!

  • Blogged about our achievements in 2020.

Sponsors

  • Renamed "partners" as "sponsors" after DeepOnion listed Tails as their partner on their website.

    The word "partners" implies reciprocity and a deeper relationship, while the word "sponsor" doesn't and is more accurate, honest, and common.

  • Got invited to the Lifetime Raffle of ProtonMail.

Outreach

Past events

  • Tails and Tor were presented (among other tools) to journalism students at Sciences Po Rennes (Rennes, France) as part of their digital safety lessons.
