Tails 2.10 is out

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

New features

Upgrades and changes

  • Upgrade Tor to 0.2.9.9.

  • Upgrade Tor Browser to 6.5.

  • Upgrade Linux to 4.8. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.)

  • Upgrade Icedove to 45.6.0.

  • Replace AdBlock Plus with uBlock Origin.

  • Configure the APT package manage to use Debian's Onion services.

  • Install the AMDGPU display driver. This should improve the support for newer AMD graphics adapters.

  • Renamed the Boot Loader Menu entries from "Live" to "Tails", and replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting Mode".

  • Add support for exFAT.

  • Remove Nyx (previously called arm).

  • Rewrite Tor control port filter entirely. Now Tails can safely support OnionShare, the circuit view of Tor Browser, and similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar piece of software with this one.

Fixed problems

  • Made OnionCircuits compatible with the Orca screen reader.
