+[[!tag announce]]
+You can help Tails! The first beta for the upcoming version 3.0 is
+out. We are very excited and cannot wait to hear what you think about
+it :)
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+# What's new in 3.0~beta1?
+Tails 3.0 will be the first version of Tails based on DebianĀ 9
+(Stretch). As such, it upgrades essentially all included software.
+Other changes include:
+ * A 64-bit processor
+ [[is now required|news/Tails_3.0_will_require_a_64-bit_processor]].
+ * We redesigned Tails Greeter entirely.
+ [[!img news/test_redesigned_Tails_Greeter/greeter-alpha.png link="no" class="margin center" alt="Redesigned Tails Greeter alpha screenshot"]]
+ * GNOME Shell is now configured to use its default black theme.
+ * We fixed a lot of problems since Tails 3.0~alpha1.
+Technical details of all the changes are listed in the
+# How to test Tails 3.0~beta1?
+**We will provide security updates for Tails 3.0~beta1**, just like we do
+for stable versions of Tails.
+But **keep in mind that this is a test image**. We tested that it is
+not broken in obvious ways, but it might still contain
+undiscovered issues.
+But test wildly!
+If you find anything that is not working as it should, please report to
+us on <>.
+Bonus points if you first check if it is a
+<a href="#known_issues">known issue of this release</a> or a
+[[longstanding known issue|support/known_issues]].

+To install 3.0~beta1, follow our usual

+verify** step.

+Known issues in 3.0~beta1
+* The documentation was not adjusted yet.
+* The <span class="guilabel">Formats</span> settings chosen in Tails
+ Greeter have no effect ([[!tails_ticket 12079]]).
+* There is no <span class="guilabel">Read-Only</span> feature for the
+ persistent volume anymore; it is not clear yet whether it will be
+ re-introduced in time for Tails 3.0 final ([[!tails_ticket 12093]]).
+* Some commonly used ways to start graphical applications as the
+ `root` user are not supported anymore. Some workarounds are documented on
+ [[!tails_ticket 12000]].
+* If you use the *KeePassX* persistence feature, you need to manually
+ import your passwords database ([[!tails_ticket 10956]]).
+* Some command-line programs (at least *Monkeysign*, *Git*, and
+ *wget*) display confusing error messages in the *Terminal*,
+ although they work fine: [[!tails_ticket 11736]],
+ [[!tails_ticket 12091]], [[!tails_ticket 12205]].
+* *I2P* fails to start ([[!tails_ticket 12108]]). Note that the *I2P*
+ feature has not been maintained in Tails since more than a year, so
+ *I2P* [[!tails_ticket 11276#note-29 desc="may be removed"]] in
+ Tails 2.12 if this problem is not solved soon.
