+[[!tag announce]]
+
+This release fixes [[many security
+issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_3.5]] and users should
+upgrade as soon as possible.
+
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+
+# Changes
+
+## New features
+
+- You can now lock your screen by clicking on the
+ <span class="button">[[!img lib/network-wireless-encrypted.png alt="" class="symbolic" link="no"]]</span>
+ button in the system menu.
+
+ [[!img doc/first_steps/introduction_to_gnome_and_the_tails_desktop/system.png link=no alt="System menu"]]
+
+ - If you set up an [[administration password|first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]]
+ when starting Tails, you can unlock your screen with your administration
+ password.
+
+ - Otherwise, you can set up a password to unlock your screen when locking your
+ screen for the first time.
+
+ [[!img doc/first_steps/introduction_to_gnome_and_the_tails_desktop/screen-locker.png alt="Set a password to unlock your screen" link="no"]]
+
+- We improved a lot the backend of the [[**Additional Software**
+ persistence feature|doc/first_steps/persistence/configure#additional_software]].
+ Your additional software is now:
+
+ - Installed in the background after the session starts instead of
+ [[blocking the opening of the desktop]].
+ - Always installed even if you are offline.
+
+- Install
+ [pdf-redact-tools](https://github.com/firstlookmedia/pdf-redact-tools/blob/master/README.md),
+ a command line tool to clean metadata and redact PDF files by
+ converting them to PNG images.
+
+- An error message indicating the name of the graphics card is now
+ displayed when Tails fails to start GNOME.
+
+## Upgrades and changes
+
+- The **Tails documentation** launcher on the desktop now opens the
+ documentation on our website if you are online.
+
+- Install drivers for the [[!wikipedia Video_Acceleration_API]] to
+ improve the display of videos on many graphics cards.
+
+- Upgrade *Electrum* from 2.7.9 to [3.0.6](https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/blob/3.0.x/RELEASE-NOTES).
+
+- Upgrade *Linux* to 4.15.0.
+
+- Upgrade *Tor* to 0.3.2.10.
+
+- Upgrade *Thunderbird* [52.6.0](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/52.6.0/releasenotes/).
+
+ We also activated the *AppArmor* profile of *Thunderbird* from Debian
+ to [[confine *Thunderbird* for security|contribute/design/application_isolation]].
+
+- Rewrite some internal scripts from shell scripting to Python, thanks
+ to [GoodCrypto](https://goodcrypto-private-server.sourceforge.io/).
+
+## Fixed problems
+
+- Remove the display of debug and error messages when starting.
+
+ [[!img version_3.5/logs.png link="no"]]
+
+- Fix the ISO image selection being unavailable in *Tails Installer* in
+ languages other than English. ([[!tails_ticket 15233]])
+
+ [[!img version_3.5/broken-file-chooser.png link="no"]]
+
+- Fix *OpenPGP Applet* being unresponsive when decrypting a lot of text.
+ ([[!tails_ticket 6398]])
+
+For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].

+
+# Known issues
+
+- <span class="application">Enigmail</span> is unable to download
+ OpenPGP keys for new contacts if you have the
+ <span class="guilabel">GnuPG</span> persistence feature activated. You can still download OpenPGP keys
+ using <span class="application">Passwords and Keys</span>.
+ ([[!tails_ticket 15395]])
+
+- This release is not reproducible, due to various python files in /usr/local
+ having different timestamps. ([[!tails_ticket 15400]])
+
+See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
+
+# Get Tails 3.6
+
+- To install, follow our [[installation instructions|install]].
+
+- We do not provide automatic upgrades from older Tails installations for
+ this release, as we've hit an old bug while generating the necessary files
+ ([[!tails_ticket 13426]]). You have to [[upgrade manually|upgrade]].
+
+- [[Download Tails 3.6.|install/download]]
+
+# What's coming up?
+
+Tails 3.7 is [[scheduled|contribute/calendar]] for May 8.
+
+Have a look at our [[!tails_roadmap]] to see where we are heading to.
+
+We need your help and there are many ways to [[contribute to
+Tails|contribute]] (<a href="https://tails.boum.org/donate?r=3.6">donating</a> is only one of
+them). Come [[talk to us|about/contact#tails-dev]]!
