Tails 54 Published by

Tails version 6.2 is now available. The Tor Browser and Tor Client have been updated to 13.0.14 and 0.4.8.11, respectively. The localization area on the Welcome Screen has been renamed Language and Formats. Tails Upgrader now defaults to upgrading later. Issues with Wi-Fi, SysRq keys, Spectre v4 mitigation, and Persistent Storage error messages have been resolved.



Tails - Tails 6.2

New features

We added 21 new languages to the Welcome Screen: Albanian, Armenian, Basque, Bengali, Bulgarian, Estonian, Galician, Icelandic, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Latvian, Malay, Norwegian Nynorsk, Polish, Serbian, Slovak, Swahili, Thai, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.

Some of these languages only have little of our custom Tails applications translated, but other applications included in Tails are better translated.

If you want to translate Tails better in these languages or translate Tails into other languages, you can contribute to the  Tor Project Weblate.

New languages will be included automatically in future versions of Tails as soon as 25% of strings are translated.
