+
+# What's new in 4.0~beta2?
+
+Tails 4.0 will be the first version of Tails based on DebianĀ 10
+(Buster). As such, it upgrades essentially all included software.
+
+We are particularly interested in detecting new problems with the following
+hardware:
+
+- Mac computers
+- Recent Nvidia and ATI/AMD graphics cards
+
+Other changes in Tails 4.0~beta2 include:
+
+- All changes [[included in 4.0~beta1|news/test_4.0-beta1]].
+
+- All changes [[included in Tails 3.16|news/version_3.16]].
+
+- Update *Linux* to 5.2.9. This mitigates the Spectre v1 swapgs
+ security vulnerability.
+
+- Update *tor* to 0.4.1.5.
+
+- Update *Enigmail* to 2.0.12.
+
+- Make the *GNOME Desktop* load faster.
+
+- Save about 250 MB of RAM.
+
+- In the *Applications* menu, move *Calculator* and *Terminal* to
+ where they were in Tails 3.x. This avoids the need to scroll in the
+ *Utilities* submenu.
+
+- Allow *OnionShare* to open links with *Tor Browser*.
+
+- Use the same icon for Tails Documentation in the *Applications* menu
+ as on the *Desktop*.
+
+Technical details of all the changes are listed in the
+[Changelog](https://git-tails.immerda.ch/tails/plain/debian/changelog?h=devel).

+# How to test Tails 4.0~beta2?
+
+We will provide security upgrades for Tails 4.0~beta2 like we do for regular
+versions of Tails.
+
+Keep in mind that this is a test image. We tested that it is not broken in
+obvious ways, but it might still contain undiscovered issues.
+
+Please, report any new problem to <tails-testers@boum.org> (public mailing list).
