Tails 0.18 was released on May 18.


  • 128 676 connections of Tails to the Tor network. This makes a boot every 21 seconds on average (this is an approximation from the requests made to the security announcements feed when Tails is connected to Tor).

  • 51 non-empty bug reports were received through WhisperBack.

  • 630 comments were posted on the forum, with 143 signed by Tails.


Documentation and Website

  • The end-user documentation about feature/set-wireless-devices-state was reviewed and improved.

  • The Tails specification and design document received various minor updates and improvements, as did the release process documentation.

  • Tons of old forum posts were cleaned up, as part of our effort to import valuable existing knowledge from there into the upcoming Q&A website.

On-going discussions


Various bits were updated to reflect the fact that Debian Wheezy was released.


  • We went on working on a grant application for more long-term funding with sponsor Foxtrot.

  • Draft contracts were sent to the bounties candidates. Some have started working on their bounty!
