+[[!tag announce]]
+This release fixes [[many security
+issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_2.11]] and users should
+upgrade as soon as possible.
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+# Changes
+## New features
+- We installed again *GNOME Sound Recorder* to provide a very simple
+ application for recording sound in addition to the more complex *Audacity*.
+ Sound clips recorded using *GNOME Sound Recorder* are saved to the *Recordings* folder.
+ [[!img sound-recorder.png link="no"]]
+## Upgrades and changes
+- We removed [*I2P*](//, an alternative anonymity network, because
+ we unfortunately have failed to find a developer to maintain *I2P* in Tails.
+ Maintaining software like *I2P* well-integrated in Tails takes time and
+ effort and our team is too busy with other priorities.
+- Upgrade *Linux* to 4.9.13. This should improve the support for newer
+ hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).
+## Fixed problems
+For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
+# Known issues
+None specific to this release.
+See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
+# Get Tails 2.12
+- To install, follow our [[installation instructions|install]].
+- To upgrade, automatic upgrades are available from 2.10 and 2.11 to 2.12.
+ If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if you fail to start after an
+ automatic upgrade, please try to do a [[manual upgrade|upgrade]].
+- [[Download Tails 2.12.|install/download]]
+# What's coming up?
+Tails 3.0 is [[scheduled|contribute/calendar]] for June 13th.
+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]] ([[donating|donate#2.12]] is only one of
+them). Come [[talk to us|about/contact#tails-dev]]!
