+[[!meta title="Tails 3.14 is out"]]
+This release fixes [[many security
+vulnerabilities|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_3.13.2]]. You should upgrade as soon as possible.
+## Upgrades and changes
+- Update *Linux* to 4.19.37 and most firmware packages. This should
+ improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).
+- Enable all available mitigations for the MDS (Microarchitectural Data Sampling)
+ attacks and disable [[!wikipedia Simultaneous_multithreading desc="SMT"]]
+ (simultaneous multithreading) on all vulnerable processors to fix the
+ [RIDL, Fallout](https://mdsattacks.com/) and
+ [ZombieLoad](https://zombieloadattack.com/) security vulnerabilities.
+- Update *Tor Browser* to 8.5.
+- Remove the following applications:
+ - Desktop applications
+ - *Gobby*
+ - *Pitivi*
+ - *Traverso*
+ - Command-line tools
+ - `hopenpgp-tools`
+ - `keyringer`
+ - `monkeysign`
+ - `monkeysphere`
+ - `msva-perl`
+ - `paperkey`
+ - `pwgen`
+ - `ssss`
+ - `pdf-redact-tools`
+ You can install these applications again using the
+ *[[Additional Software|doc/first_steps/additional_software]]* feature.
+ Thanks to the removal of these less popular applications 3.14 and the removal
+ of some language packs in 3.13.2, Tails 3.14 is 39 MB smaller than 3.13.
+## Fixed problems
+- Add back the *OpenPGP Applet* and *Pidgin* notification icons to the top
+ navigation bar.
+ [[!img version_3.13.2/top-navigation-bar.png link="no"]]
+- Fix *NoScript* being deactivated when restarting *Tor Browser*.

+### Tails fails to start a second time on some computers ([[!tails_ticket 16389]])
+On some computers, after installing Tails to a USB stick,
+Tails starts a first time but fails to start a second time. In some
+cases, only BIOS (Legacy) was affected and the USB stick was not listed
+in the Boot Menu.

+report your findings by email to <email@example.com>. Mention the
+model of the computer and the USB stick. This mailing
+list is [archived publicly](https://lists.autistici.org/list/tails-testers.html).
