+
+Releases
+========
+
+* [[Tails 3.3 was released on November 14th|news/version_3.3]] (minor release).
+
+* We will not make an emergency release for the latest Tor Browser update, because Tails is [[!tails_ticket 15018 desc="not affected"]].
+
+* Tails 3.5 is [[scheduled for January 16th|contribute/calendar]].
+
+Code
+====
+
+* We fixed issues regarding reproducible builds
+ ([[!tails_ticket 14924]], [[!tails_ticket 14946]],
+ [[!tails_ticket 14933]]) and later realized that one of them fixes
+ did not work in some corner cases… that include the ISO images we
+ build for the Tails official releases. Sadly, due to an internal
+ communication mishap we've announced that Tails 3.3 was reproducible
+ before we had learned about this remaining problem.
+
+* We uploaded a new version of tails-installer (5.0.2) to Debian and Ubuntu.
+ This version has a simpler interface than previous versions.
+
+Documentation and website
+=========================
+
+* We have documented internally how active Tails contributors can be
+ sponsored to attend events on behalf of Tails and are now working
+ towards publishing this documentation so that all contributors are
+ aware of this option ([[!tails_ticket 14727]]).
+
+User experience
+===============
+
+- We almost finished the work on the new download page and verification
+ extension for Firefox and Chrome. We're stuck blocked by security
+ reviews and improvements on the JavaScript code.
+
+- Our survey on file storage encryption was answered 1012 times between
+ October 17 and December 1. It was a huge success and we'll not move on
+ to analyzing the results.
+
+Hot topics on our help desk
+===========================

+ Firefox"]]
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+- Our test suite covers 209 scenarios, 2 more that in October.
+- Cyril Brulebois (kibi) published a [blog post about his early work on reproducible builds](https://debamax.com/blog/2017/11/20/tails-early-work-on-reproducibility/).
+
+Funding
+=======
+
+* We submitted a funding request for the Secure Operating Systems
+ Summit that we are organizing with Qubes OS, Subgraph OS and Whonix.
+
+* We applied to the "Good of the Internet" call for proposals by RIPE
+ NCC. Our proposal is titled "Interoperability and communication
+ continuity between mobile, laptop and desktop computers, in privacy
+ and security-sensitive environments".
+
+* We continued to run our donation campaign.
