This release fixes many security issues and users should upgrade as soon as possible.

Changes

New features

  • We added support for PPPoE and dial-up Internet connections.

    Please tell us if this still doesn't work for you!

  • We installed BookletImposer to convert linear PDF documents into booklets, and vice-versa.

  • We added GNOME Screen Keyboard to replace Florence, the previous virtual keyboard, which had many issues.

Upgrades and changes

  • Upgrade Linux to 4.12.12. This should improve the support for newer hardware, especially NVIDIA Maxwell graphics card.

  • Upgrade Thunderbird from 45.8 to 52.3.

User experience

  • Require a 8 GB USB stick to install Tails. 4 GB USB sticks that are already installed can still be upgraded.

  • Tails Installer now detects when the target USB stick has Tails installed already and automatically proposes to upgrade. This made possible to remove the initial splash screen.

Security

  • Disable Bluetooth to protect against the BlueBorne attack. #14655

    Please let us know if this makes it hard for you to use Tails!

  • Increase the randomization of ASLR to the maximum. #11840

  • Deny access to the D-Bus service of Pidgin to prevent other applications to access and modify its configuration. #14612.

Fixed problems

  • Fix the import of secret OpenPGP keys in Password and Keys. #12733
