New Release: Tails 4.11

by tails | September 22, 2020

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

New features

  • We added a new feature of the Persistent Storage to save the settings from the Welcome Screen: language, keyboard, and additional settings.
    To restore your settings when starting Tails, unlock your Persistent Storage in the Welcome Screen.

Changes and updates

  • Update Tor Browser to 10.0.
  • Update Thunderbird to 68.12.
  • Update Linux to 5.7.17. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).
  • Configure KeePassXC to use the new default location Passwords.kdbx. (#17286)
  • Update python3-trezor to 0.11.6 to add compatibility with the new Trezor Model T.

Fixed problems

  • Disable the feature to Turn on Wi-Fi Hotspot in the Wi-Fi settings because it doesn't work in Tails. (#17887)

For more details, read our changelog.
