  1. Tails 4.20 arrives with Tor Connection assistant but you still have to build bridges Tails 4.20 has been released with several big changes, namely the Tor Connection assistant that makes it easier to get set up using a Tor bridge. If you’re not familiar with bridges, they’re designed for people in authoritarian countries where Tor usage is dangerous, by connecting to a bridge as your first node in the Tor network, anyone monitoring your activities won’t know you’re on Tor. The Tor Browser made it really easy to connect to bridges a while back because it removed the need to enter bridge details manually. Tails still hadn’t built in this functionality and even with the new Tor Connection assistant, it still doesn’t offer the feature. What this update does, however, it makes it easier to set up a bridge connection by giving users the option as soon as they get connected to Wi-Fi. In older releases, you had to go into the advanced settings before starting the Tails session. In future, the Tor Connection assistant will let you save Tor bridges to persistent storage, help detect when Wi-Fi isn’t working, detect if you have to sign in to a local network via a captive portal, improve clock synchronization to make bridges work better in Asia, and it’ll make bridge discovery easier. Another welcome change in this update is the inclusion of OnionShare 2.2. This major update allows people to host a website from a Tor onion service. Once your site is up, other people can access it from the unique onion URL which is only accessible via the Tor Browser. You can still use OnionShare to send ordinary files to other people via Tor too. If you ever tried Tails before and suffered from hardware incompatibility issues, this update includes the Linux 5.10.46 kernel which comes with support for newer graphics cards, Wi-Fi cards, and other hardware. To get started with Tails head over to the project's website. If you already have a Tails USB device, plug it in and connect to Wi-Fi, you will then be shown a prompt to perform the upgrade.

  2. Tails 4.19 is here but in-built Tor Bridges pushed back The Tails project has announced the release of Tails 4.19 with a change that will prevent automatic updates from breaking as happened with Tails 4.14. Unfortunately, the in-built Tor Bridges that were being tested during the beta and release candidate of Tails 4.19 have not made the cut due to the team not feeling confident enough to release that feature today. To further bolster security, Tails would pin the TLS certificate of the Tails website when performing an automatic update, however, this caused automatic updates to break several times so this feature has been removed. Upgrades are still strongly authenticated as they’re signed by the Tails project using OpenPGP so you should be safe when doing upgrades. Another small change in this update is the addition of visual feedback when typing the admin password with sudo in the terminal. In the past, you would just type the password and hit enter but now asterisks will show up as you type so you can easily tell if the terminal is receiving the input. This should make Tails easier to use for people who don’t normally use Linux. As always, the Tor Browser and the Thunderbird packages have been updated to coincide with the latest releases of Firefox and Thunderbird on their Extended Support Release cycles. The update to the Tor Browser is the main reason that everyone should update their Tails installations. When you boot your Tails install and get online you will be alerted about the upgrade which you should do right away. If the automatic install is not available then you can try to do the manual upgrade instead. If you do not have a Tails disk already set up, then head over to the Get Tails guide.

  3. Tails 4.18 released, users urged to upgrade now The privacy-focused Linux operating system, Tails, has been upgraded to version 4.18. It comes with several changes and includes fixes for known security vulnerabilities. Due to the nature of Tails and its focus on privacy, the team that produces the OS has urged everyone to upgrade to Tails 4.18 as soon as possible. If you’ve ever used Tails, you’ll have noticed the ‘Synchronizing the system’s clock’ notification after you connect to the internet. As this notification doesn’t recommend a specific action, the developers decided to remove it altogether so that it doesn’t confuse users into changing the system’s clock. Another change in this update is the removal of the gettext editor Poedit. Tails uses Weblate now to provide translated text for Tails and Tails website so Poedit wasn’t deemed necessary. You can still install Poedit on Tails by following the Additional Software guide. In addition to these changes, the Tor Browser has been upgraded to 10.0.16, Thunderbird has been updated to 78.9.0-1, and some Intel and Linux firmware packages have been updated which should improve support for newer hardware such as graphics cards and Wi-Fi. To upgrade a Tails 4.15+ device to the latest version just boot the system, connect to Wi-Fi and you should see a pop-up telling you to upgrade. If you’re on Tails 4.14 or below, automatic upgrades are broken you’ll need to do a manual upgrade. Source: Tails 4.18 released, users urged to upgrade now
  4. Tails 4.17 launched with improved upgrade process The team behind the privacy-oriented operating system, Tails, has launched Tails 4.17. This update includes several important updates to key packages such as the Tor Browser which are essential for maintaining your privacy but it also comes with several improvements to the upgrade process which should result in less failed upgrades. The first of the reliability improvements to automatic upgrades pertains to the file system. The release notes state that automatic updates were previously failing because of an unclean file system. To address this, Tails now automatically repairs the file system being used during an upgrade to eliminate the issue. Another change to improve upgrade reliability is the download process of new updates. Each Tails upgrade requires the users to download the new image over Tails’ Tor connection which can sometimes be spotty. With Tails 4.17, downloads will now automatically resume if they do stop so it’ll save users a lot of time. In terms of new package updates, the Tor Browser has been updated to 10.0.14, Thunderbird has been bumped to 78.8.0, Tor is now on 0.4.5.7, the GRUB bootloader is on 2.04-16, and several firmware packages that improve Intel, Broadcom, and Cypress interfaces have been included too. If you’re running Tails 4.14 or above you will get a notification telling you to update your system as soon as you connect to the internet. If you do not yet have a Tails USB to boot from but would like one, you can find instructions on downloading and installing Tails on the project’s website.

  5. Tails OS 4.15 released with updated Tor Browser Tails OS 4.15 has been released today bringing with it updates for the Tor Browser, the Linux kernel and fixes for several issues including USB tethering not working with devices running iOS 14 or later. Luckily, there are no new issues introduced with this version of the privacy-oriented OS but it’s still affected by long-standing issues. According to the release notes, there are no new major changes in this update outside of updated software. The only new feature is that you now have the option to press “Don’t Show Again’ on the security notification that pops up when you attempt to run Tails on a virtual machine. This update does come with several critical software patches for things like the Tor Browser which is now on version 10.0.9 (based on Firefox 78.7), Thunderbird has been bumped to 78.6.0, and the Linux kernel now sits on version 5.9.15 bringing support for newer hardware. The new kernel update also addresses a bug that prevented iOS 14 devices from being used for tethering. To install Tails 4.15, you’ll either need to follow the guide to setting up a Tails USB to perform a clean install or you can upgrade an existing Tails install. When you’ve booted up your Tails 4.2 or above USB and connected to the internet, you will be offered the upgrade. If you choose to update, the new version will download and begin to install. If you would like to see what’s planned in future updates, check out the Tails roadmap. Tails OS 4.15 released with updated Tor Browser
