How to test Tails 0.14~rc1?

  1. Keep in mind that this is a test image. We have made sure that it is not broken in an obvious way, but it might still contain undiscovered issues.

  2. Download the ISO image and its signature:

    Tails 0.14~rc1 ISO image

    Tails 0.14~rc1 signature

  3. Verify the ISO image.

  4. Have a look at the list of known issues of this release and the list of [[longstanding known issues|support/known_issues]].

  5. Test wildly!

If you find anything that is not working as it should, please [[report to us|doc/first_steps/bug_reporting]]! Bonus points if you check that it is not a known issue of this release or a [[longstanding known issue|support/known_issues]].

What's new since 0.13?

Known issues in 0.14~rc1

Stream isolation inconsistency in Claws Mail

Claws Mail isn't using its dedicated Tor SocksPort for Tor hidden service IMAP/POP/SMTP servers (instead Tor's TransPort is used). This is just a deviation from Tails' design and should have no adverse real world consequences.

I2P is broken

I2P doesn't start any local proxies despite connecting to the I2P network just fine. This makes it essentially unusable, e.g. eepSites like http://www.i2p2.i2p cannot be accessed in Iceweasel. The reason for this seems to be a random memory error in the machine building the Tails 0.14~rc1 image. See this post on tails-dev for more information.
