+# A. VeraCrypt support in GNOME
+## A.6 Add VeraCrypt support to GNOME Files
+We continued working with GNOME upstream on our many merge requests related to unlocking VeraCrypt volumes in *GNOME Files*:
+* <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gvfs/merge_requests/4> (merged)
+* <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib/merge_requests/120> (merged)
+* <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/merge_requests/261> (merged)
+* <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/merge_requests/267> (merged)
+## A.8 User testing & community feedback
+We released a beta version and called for testing on Twitter, on our
+blog and on our testers mailing list. Then we started collecting
+feedback. Based on this feedback, UX designers and developers will
+prioritize and fix as many issues as possible within the
+## A.9 Fix bugs and UX issues
+We made many improvements and fixed issues that were discovered during the user testing or were reported by testers of the beta, most notably:
+* Extend *VeraCrypt Mounter* and made it the default handler of VeraCrypt file containers ([[!tails_ticket 15664#note-16]])
+* Improve the *VeraCrypt Mounter* UI and icon ([[!tails_ticket 15043]] [[!tails_ticket 15680]])
+* Show a spinner in the places sidebar of GNOME Files during unlock operations ([[!tails_ticket 15664]])
+* Extend the GTK ask-password dialog to support VeraCrypt options ([[!tails_ticket 15667]])
+# B. Additional software
+## B.6 Write user documentation
+We've worked on the user documentation for the Additional Software
+feature and completed most of it ([[!tails_ticket 14589]]). There are some
+remaining subtasks needing work, we are confident that we'll be able to
+publish the documentation along with the Tails 3.9 release.
+## B.8 Fix bugs and UX issues
+We made progress on improving on many and fixing some of the bugs
+identified by our user testing ([[!tails_ticket 15567]]).
+# C. Deliver new features
+Our entire team kept coordinating their work in order to ensure we
+merge these new features in Tails 3.9~rc1 and deliver them in Tails 3.9.
