Tails 56 Published by

A new version of Tails, a portable operating system that offers security from snooping and censorship, has been released.

Tails 5.17

Changes and updates

  • Rename Tails Installer as Tails Cloner. ( #16907)

  • Install more printer drivers and enable all printers automatically. ( #18254)

  • Update Tor Browser to  12.5.3.

  • Update Thunderbird to  102.15.0.

Fixed problems

  • Fix some failures while unlocking the Persistent Storage. ( #19728)

    Sometimes, upgrading the cryptographic parameters of the Persistent Storage was taking too long and made unlocking the Persistent Storage fail. We allowed the upgrade to take more time before reporting a failure.

    Please keep reporting errors using  WhisperBack if you have problems unlocking your Persistent Storage.
