+Releases
+========
+
+* Tails 2.9 was cancelled due to
+ [CVE-2016-1252](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2016-1252).
+* [[Tails 2.9.1 was released on December 14|news/version_2.9.1]] (minor release).
+* Tails 2.10 is [[scheduled for January 24|contribute/calendar]].
+
+The following changes were introduced in Tails 2.9.1:
+
+* Switch to *DuckDuckGo* as the default search engine in *Tor Browser*.
+ The previous default search engine, *Disconnect.me*, has already been
+ redirecting to *Duck Duck Go* for some time.
+
+Code
+====
+
+* We've had a great sprint about porting Tails to Debian Stretch.
+ Most of our time was spent integrating the new Greeter as well as bug fixing,
+ polishing, and updating the test suite:
+ [report from the sprint](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-dev/2016-December/011121.html).
+ Our goal is to publish a first beta version based on Debian Stretch at
+ the end of January.
+
+* intrigeri made sure that a number of packages we care about are in
+ good shape for Debian Stretch, that will be frozen very soon.
+
+* We [[!tails_ticket 11799 desc="wrote manual tests for the Installation
+ Assistant"]], so we can spot any problems with it before we release new
+ Tails versions.
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+* 387 ISO images were automatically built and tested by our continuous
+ integration infrastructure.
+
+* We deployed a clone of our Jenkins setup for building and testing
+ ISO images automatically, and improved the corresponding Puppet code
+ to make it possible. This should make it easier for new
+ [[system administrators|contribute/how/sysadmin]] to join us.
+
+Funding
+=======
+
+- We continued our donation campaign which brought us about
+ $100 000 in donations. Thanks for your support!
+
+- The [[independent French investigative journal Mediapart has decided
+ to support|news/mediapart]] Tails financially every year. Thank you
+ very much!
+
+- We submitted a concept note to OTF for 2017-2018.
+
+- We were contacted by private sponsors interested in donating and being
+ recognized as Tails patrons.
