Releases

In September, we released 4.22 with updates for Tor Browser and Thunderbird, improvements to the Tor Connection Assistant, and several fixes.

Tails 4.23 is scheduled for October 5.

Highlights of the month

  • We got several reports about folks being unable to download Tails images using Google Chrome, Chromium or Chromium-based browsers, and fixed it. (#18616)

  • We also received reports about a new problem with the Additional Software feature (Splitting of clearsigned file errors), and we're working on it! (#18620)

  • We improved our documentation on Connecting to the Tor network and added a new nice diagram.

    A Tor connection goes through 3 relays with the last one establishing the actual connection to the final destination

  • The documentation style guide is now the single place where we describe how we write our documentation.

Metrics

  • Tails has been started more than 668 017 times this month. This makes 22 267 boots a day on average.
