Software update: Tails 5.6

Spread the love

Tails stands for The amnesic incognito live system and is a live Linux distribution that focuses on privacy and anonymity. It bases on Debian GNU/Linux and adds a Gnome environment with Tor, Tor Browser, Pidgin, Thunderbird, Electrum, LibreOffice, GPG and KeePassXC. For more information, we refer to this page. Version 5 is based on Debian 11 and OpenPGP has been replaced by Kleopatra, among other things. The following changes and improvements have also been made in version 5.6:

Changes and Updates

  • Update Tor Browser to 11.5.5.
  • Update the Linux kernel to 5.10.149. This should improve the support for newer hardware: graphics, Wi-Fi, and so on.

Fixed problems

  • When a manual upgrade is required, Tails now always points to the release notes of the latest version, instead of pointing sometimes to a deprecated version. (#17069)
