Software Update: Tails 4.11

Tails stands for “The amnesic incognito live system” and is a live Linux distribution that focuses on privacy and anonymity. It uses Debian GNU/Linux as its base and adds a Gnome environment with Tor, Tor Browser, Pidgin, Thunderbird, Electrum, LibreOffice, GPG and KeePassXC. For more information, please refer to this page. The development team has released version 4.11 with the following changes and improvements:

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)
