Tails 54 Published by

The release candidate for Tails 6.0, which is an operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux 12 and includes GNOME 43, has been made available for testing. The new version includes a number of new features, including the capability to switch between dark and night light modes, automatic mounting of external devices, and protection against malicious USB devices. Additionally, it allows for the creation of screenshots and screencasts with greater ease by introducing a new shortcut called Take Screenshot in GNOME 43. The process of configuring a Gmail account in Thunderbird has been simplified thanks to modifications made in both Thunderbird and Gmail. As an additional feature, diceware passphrases can now be generated in five additional languages, namely Catalan, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
