+[[!meta title="Call for testing: redesigned Tails Greeter"]]
+[[!meta date="2016-12-06 19:00:00"]]
+[[!tag announce]]
+You can help Tails! The first alpha for the redesigned <span
+class="application">Tails Greeter</span> is
+out. We are very excited and cannot wait to hear what you think about
+it :)
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+# What is <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span>?
+<span class="application">Tails Greeter</span> is the set of dialogs that
+appear after the <span class="application">boot menu</span>, but before the
+<span class="application">GNOME Desktop</span> appears.
+It lets you choose your language, enable your persistent volume, and
+set a number of other options.
+# Why a new <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span>?
+We had two main reasons to redesign <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span>:
+* Usability testing has demonstrated that it is not as easy to use as
+ we would like, especially for people trying Tails for the
+ first time.
+* We have pushed the old interface to its limits; it cannot
+ accommodate the options we would like to add to it.
+# What is new in the redesigned <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span>?
+Nearly everything you can see has changed! We have been working for
+more than two years with designers to make <span
+class="application">Tails Greeter</span> easier to use:
+[[!img greeter-alpha.png link="no" class="margin center" alt="Redesigned Tails Greeter
+alpha screenshot"]]
+# How to test the redesigned <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span>?
+**Keep in mind that this is a test image.** We did not carefully test
+it so it is not guaranteed to provide any security or anonymity.
+But test wildly!
+## Download and install
+<a class="download-file"
+Tails ISO image including the redesigned <span
+class="application">Tails Greeter</span></a>
+The line corresponding to the ISO image is the one whose size is `1G`.
+<div class="bug">
+You cannot install this ISO image from Tails 2.x. It is impossible
+as well to upgrade to this ISO image from Tails 2.x. So, either
+install or upgrade from a non-Tails system, or start this ISO image
+from DVD and then clone it to a USB stick.
+To install this ISO image, follow our usual [[installation instructions|install]],
+skipping the **Download and verify** step.
+## What to test
+Don't hesitate to test all kinds of options, and ensure they are taken into account in
+the Tails session.
+If you find anything that is not working as it should, please report
+to us on <>, including the exact filename of the
+ISO image you have tested.
+# Known issues in the redesigned <span class="application">Tails Greeter</a>
+* This experimental ISO image is based on
+ [[Tails 3.0~alpha1|news/test_3.0-alpha1]], so all
+ [open issues for Tails 3.0](
+ apply to it as well.
+* <span class="application">Tails Greeter</span> is not translated in
+ many languages yet.
+# Like it?
+We have a donation campaign going on: we explained you
+[[why we needed donations|news/why_we_need_donations]],
+[[how we use these donations|news/what_we_do_with_your_money]], and we
+shared with you
+[[our plans for the next years|news/our_plans_for_2017]].
+So if you want Tails to remain independent, if you want to enable the
+Tails team to work on projects we think are important, such as
+redesigning <span class="application">Tails Greeter</a>, please take
+one minute to make a donation.
