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

Changes and upgrades

  • Use https://keys.openpgp.org/, also available on http://zkaan2xfbuxia2wpf7ofnkbz6r5zdbbvxbunvp5g2iebopbfc4iqmbad.onion/, as the default OpenPGP keyserver.

    If you have GnuPG keys stored in Persistence since before Tails 4.1, you should update your OpenPGP keyserver configuration and adapt your Tails to this change.

  • Update Tor Browser to 9.0.2.

  • Update Thunderbird to from 60.9.0 to 68.2.2.

  • Replace the TorBirdy extension with custom settings and patches in Thunderbird that provide equivalent privacy.

  • Update Enigmail to 2.1.3, which has a simplified setup wizard that automatically creates an OpenPGP key for new email accounts.

  • Update Linux to 5.3.9. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).

Behobene Probleme

  • Add back the Show Passphrase check box in Tails Greeter. (#17177)

  • Fix the display of the troubleshooting error when GDM fails to start. (#17200)

  • Add back the option to Open in Terminal when doing right-click (on Mac, click with two fingers) in a folder in the Files browser. (#17186)

  • Make the installation of additional software more reliable. (#17203)
