Tails 3.0 is out (Don’t be a Bank or the NHS, Upgrade Today)

Tails 3.0 is out

From the webpage:

We are especially proud to present you Tails 3.0, the first version of Tails based on Debian 9 (Stretch). It brings a completely new startup and shutdown experience, a lot of polishing to the desktop, security improvements in depth, and major upgrades to a lot of the included software.

Debian 9 (Stretch) will be released on June 17. It is the first time that we are releasing a new version of Tails almost at the same time as the version of Debian it is based upon. This was an important objective for us as it is beneficial to both our users and users of Debian in general and strengthens our relationship with upstream:

  • Our users can benefit from the cool changes in Debian earlier.
  • We can detect and fix issues in the new version of Debian while it is still in development so that our work also benefits Debian earlier.

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

Upgrade today, not tomorrow, not next week. Today!

Don’t be like banks and NHS and run out-dated software.

Promote software upgrades by

  • barring civil liability for
  • decriminalizing
  • prohibiting insurance coverage for damages due to

hacking of out-dated software.

Management will develop an interest in software upgrade policies.
