+[[!tag announce]]
+This release fixes [[many security
+issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_3.3]] and users should
+upgrade as soon as possible.
+In particular, Tails 3.4 fixes the widely reported
+[Meltdown]( attack, and includes the
+partial mitigation for [Spectre](
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+# Changes
+## Upgrades and changes
+- Update *Linux* to 4.14.12 which fixes
+ [Meltdown](,
+ [Spectre]( (only partially) and many
+ other issues. ([[!tails_ticket 14976]])
+## Fixed problems
+- Fix an issue that made Tails start very slowly, in particular on
+ DVD. ([[!tails_ticket 14964]])
+- Don't delete downloaded Debian packages after installing them. This
+ is mostly relevant for users of the *APT Packages* persistence
+ feature. ([[!tails_ticket 10958]])
+- Fix an issue that prevented some Debian packages to install properly
+ with the *Additional software* feature. ([[!tails_ticket 6038]])
+- Update *uBlock Origin* to restore its icon in *Tor Browser*, and
+ make its settings dashboard work again. ([[!tails_ticket 14993]])
+For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
+<a id="known-issues"></a>
+# Known issues
+- The graphical splash screen usually displayed during Tails startup
+ quickly disappears and is replaced by garbled text messages. As long
+ as Tails appears to work fine for you otherwise, please ignore these
+ messages, including the alarming message about a "kernel BUG" (which
+ was [[!debbug 886329 desc="reported to Debian"]]): they do not
+ affect the safety of your Tails system.
+- Due to [an issue in *Tor
+ Browser*](, the
+ documentation shipped in Tails doesn't open in *Tor Browser* anymore
+ and lacks our sidebar. The warning page of the
+ *Unsafe Browser* also lacks graphical design. ([[!tails_ticket 14962]])
+See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
+# Get Tails 3.4
+- To install, follow our [[installation instructions|install]].
+- To upgrade, automatic upgrades are available from 3.2 and 3.3.
+ If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if you fail to start after an
+ automatic upgrade, please try to do a [[manual upgrade|upgrade]].
+- [[Download Tails 3.4.|install/download]]
