+[[!meta title="Tails 2.10 is out"]]
+[[!tag announce]]
+
+This release fixes [[many security
+issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_2.9.1]] and users should
+upgrade as soon as possible.
+
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+
+# Changes
+
+## New features
+
+ - We installed [[*OnionShare*|doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare]],
+ a tool for anonymous file sharing.
+
+ [[!img version_2.10/onionshare.png link="no"]]
+
+ - We enabled the
+ [[circuit view|doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser#circuit_view]]
+ in *Tor Browser*.
+
+ [[!img doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser/circuit_view.png link="no"]]
+
+## Upgrades and changes
+
+ - Upgrade *Tor* to 0.2.9.9.
+
+ - Upgrade *Tor Browser* to 6.5.
+
+ - Upgrade *Linux* to 4.8. This should improve the support for newer
+ hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.)
+
+ - Upgrade *Icedove* to 45.6.0.
+
+ - Replace *AdBlock Plus* with *uBlock Origin*.
+
+ - Configure the *APT* package manage to use Debian's Onion services.
+
+ - Install the *AMDGPU* display driver. This should improve the
+ support for newer AMD graphics adapters.
+
+ - Renamed the *Boot Loader Menu* entries from "Live" to "Tails", and
+ replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting
+ Mode".
+
+ - Add support for [[!wikipedia exFAT]].
+
+ - Remove *Nyx* (previously called *arm*).
+
+ - Rewrite *Tor control port filter* entirely. Now Tails can safely
+ support *OnionShare*, the circuit view of *Tor Browser*, and
+ similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar
+ piece of software with this one.
+
+## Fixed problems
+
+ - Made *OnionCircuits* compatible with the *Orca* screen reader.
+
+For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
