You can help Tails! The first alpha for the upcoming version 3.0 is out. We are very excited and cannot wait to hear what you think about it :)
Tails 3.0 will be the first version of Tails based on Debian 9 (Stretch). As such, it upgrades essentially all included software.
It also requires a 64-bit computer, and GNOME Shell is now configured to use its default black theme.
Technical details of all the changes are listed in the Changelog.
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!
