+
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+
+# Changes
+
+## 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`

+ - `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.

+# Known issues
+
+### 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.
+
+We are still investigating the issue, so if it happens to you, please
+report your findings by email to <tails-testers@boum.org>. Mention the
+model of the computer and the USB stick. This mailing
+list is [archived publicly](https://lists.autistici.org/list/tails-testers.html).
+
+To fix this issue:
+
+1. Reinstall your USB stick using the same installation method.
+
+1. Start Tails for the first time and [[set up an administration
+ password|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]].
+
+1. Choose <span class="menuchoice">
+ <span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
+ <span class="guisubmenu">System Tools</span>&nbsp;▸
+ <span class="guimenuitem">Root Terminal</span>
+ </span> to open a <span class="application">Root Terminal</span>.
+
+1. Execute the following command:
+
+ <p class="pre command">sgdisk --recompute-chs /dev/bilibop</p>
+
+You can also test an experimental image:
+
+1. [Download the *.img* file from our development
+ server](https://nightly.tails.boum.org/build_Tails_ISO_bugfix-16389-recompute-chs/lastSuccessful/archive/build-artifacts/).
+
+1. Install it using the same installation methods.
+
+ We don't provide any OpenPGP signature or other verification technique
+ for this test image. Please only use it for testing.
+
+See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
