+[[!tag announce]]
+
+Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.2, is out.
+
+This release fixes [[numerous security
+issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_1.1.2]] and all users must
+[[upgrade|doc/first_steps/upgrade]] as soon as possible.
+
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+
+# Changes
+
+Notable user-visible changes include:
+
+ * Major new features
+ - Install (most of) the Tor Browser, replacing our previous
+ Iceweasel-based browser. The version installed is from TBB 4.0
+ and is based on Firefox 31.2.0esr. This fixes the
+ POODLE vulnerability.
+ - Upgrade Tor to 0.2.5.8-rc.
+ - Confine several important applications with AppArmor.
+
+ * Bugfixes
+ - Install Linux 3.16-3 (version 3.16.5-1).
+
+ * Minor improvements
+ - Upgrade I2P to 0.9.15, and isolate I2P traffic from the Tor
+ Browser by adding a dedicated I2P Browser. Also, start I2P
+ automatically upon network connection, when the `i2p` boot
+ option is added.
+ - Make it clear that *TrueCrypt* will be removed in Tails 1.2.1
+ ([[!tails_ticket 7739]]), and document how to open *TrueCrypt*
+ volumes with `cryptsetup`.
+ - Enable VirtualBox guest additions by default ([[!tails_ticket
+ 5730]]). In particular this enables VirtualBox's display
+ management service.
+ - Make the OTR status in Pidgin clearer thanks to the formatting
+ toolbar ([[!tails_ticket 7356]]).
+ - Upgrade syslinux to 6.03-pre20, which should fix UEFI boot on
+ some hardware.
+
+See the [online
+Changelog](https://git-tails.immerda.ch/tails/plain/debian/changelog)
+for technical details.
