+
+Releases
+========
+
+* Tails 3.9 is scheduled for September 5. Its release candidate
+ is scheduled for August 17.
+
+Code
+====
+
+We did most of the work needed to upgrade to Tor Browser 8,
+based on Firefox 60ESR.
+
+We continued to work on including VeraCrypt in Tails.
+
+We continued our work on creating a user interface for our Additional
+Software feature to make it easier to use.
+
+We worked on new Debian packages for Torbirdy, Tails Installer and
+OnionShare.
+
+We prepared
+[a fix](https://ikiwiki.info/todo/Re-use_translated_content_instead_of_skipping_if_previously_translated/)
+for a long standing bug in ikiwiki that makes our website render in
+a buggy way regularly.
+
+We worked more on integrating our future web translation platform with
+our infrastructure. This platform is currently not production ready but
+is being tested and used by a few translators.
+
+- We wrote Git hooks for all machines and contributors using Git.
+
+- We wrote and improved several scripts that check the validity of PO
+ files that we carry. We need these scripts to further automate our
+ translation processes, hence all translators, humans and interfaces
+ need to respect certain rules when committing PO files to our
+ repository. This is currently not active and still needs to be tested
+ more extensively.
+
+- We are working on ikiwiki, our website engine, to support adding
+ translation files for non-active languages.
+
+Documentation and website
+=========================
+
+We updated our [[installation instructions for Debian|install/debian/usb]] to:
+
+- Linux Mint 19
+
+- Tails Installer with no splash screen
+
+User experience
+===============
+
+We designed interfaces to:
+
+- Persist the screen locking password ([[!tails_ticket 15641]]).
+
+- Attach screenshots to *WhisperBack* reports ([[!tails_ticket 8660]]).
+
+Hot topics on our help desk
+===========================
+
+
+
+1. Users complained about GDM not starting (most of them with Intel GPU [[!tails_ticket 15700]]).
+1. Some others were unable to use Wi-Fi (non supported USB adapters and [[!tails_ticket 15520]]).
+
+1. Enigmail setup wizard [[!tails_ticket 15693]] generated some requests.
+
+1. And still a few [[!tails_ticket 10976 desc="lost persistence"]] reports. Remember: we need the debugging info from a session in which the persistence seems to be lost, to be able to fix this. More information [here](https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/10976#note-16).
+
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+We asked [Wikimedia](https://mirrors.wikimedia.org/) to become our
+primary fallback download mirror, and they accepted. We'll implement
+this change in the coming months. Thank you Wikimedia!
+
+We've updated our web translation platform to a recent version. The
+process went smoothly.
+
+We started looking into the long-term viability of Dogtail,
+one of the key components of our automated testing framework.
+
+Funding
+=======
+
+- We analyzed the results from last year's donation campaign.
+
+ We got more money than in 2016 (101 664€, +34%) but from less donations (-43%).
+
+Outreach
+========
+
+Past events
+-----------
+
+- sajolida attended [PETS](https://petsymposium.org).
+
+- Four of us attended [DebConf](https://debconf18.debconf.org) in
+ Hsinchu, Taiwan.
+
+- emmapeel attended a dev sprint with Tactical Tech about investigative journalist tools for Tails in Montenegro.
+
+Upcoming events
+---------------
+
+- sajolida will be at [Tor meeting in Mexico
+ City](https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/meetings/2018MexicoCity)
+ from September 29 to October 3 and will present Tails during the open
+ days on October 2.
