[[!toc]]

Releases
========

There have been no releases in April (a big change compared to the three releases in March!).

* Tails 3.7 is [[scheduled for May 8|contribute/calendar]].

Code
====

* We kept working with upstream to be able to [support VeraCrypt in GNOME](https://github.com/storaged-project/udisks/pull/495).

* There is movement also on the next MAT: [MAT2](https://0xacab.org/jvoisin/mat2). Lots of improvements, will come with support for new formats (torrents!) and more.

* We worked on the new [[Additional Software feature|blueprint/additional_software_packages/gui]], that will be ready for Tails 3.9 and will make programs easy to install each time you start Tails (as long as they are available from [[Debian|support/faq/#software]]).

Documentation and website
=========================

- We wrote a new page to list [[known issues with graphics
  cards|support/known_issues/graphics]]. Combined with the better error message
  when GDM fails to start that we introduced in [[Tails 3.6|news/version_3.6]],
  it should gradually improve a lot the experience of people who cannot start
  Tails with their graphics card.

User experience
===============

- We started designing a [quantitative survey of our user
  base](https://mailman.boum.org/pipermail/tails-ux/2018-April/003540.html).

  What would be useful for us to know about our users?

- We drafted a [[fourth persona skeleton|personas#derya]].

- We removed the zooming effect on the screenshots in our installation
  instructions which was annoying. ([[!tails_ticket 14678]])

Hot topics on our help desk
===========================

1. Users are still affected by [[a loss of persistence.conf|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/10976]]

1. We received also several reports about [[keyboard and mouse not working after upgrading|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/14754]]

1. A few users reported the [[disappearance of a part of their keyring|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15014]]

1. And some users had [[trouble with obfs4 bridges|https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15548]]

Infrastructure
==============

- We documented our [[LimeSurvey
  installation|contribute/how/user_experience/limesurvey]].

Funding
=======

- We participated in the DuckDuckGo Privacy Challenge. We raised $9 870
  in donations and will receive $33 000 in prizes from DuckDuckGo.

  Thanks a lot to everybody who participated!

<!-- I'm not reporting on USB images on purpose: let's announce it once it's 100% confirmed. -->

Outreach
========

Past events
-----------

- There was a Tails introductory workshop at the [Flisol2018](https://ranchoelectronico.org/checa-el-programa-preliminar-del-flisol-2018/) conference on April 28, Rancho Electronico, Mexico City

Upcoming events
---------------

- sajolida will give a workshop about Tails at the [European Investigative
  Journalism Conference](https://journalismfund.wordpress.com/event/european-investigative-journalism-dataharvest-conference)
  on May 26 in Mechelen, Belgium.
- intrigeri will host a Tails users' meetup in the [Cryptorave](https://cryptorave.org/), May 5th, in  São Paulo, Brazil

Press and testimonials
======================

- The italian association "Mutuo Soccorso", in their last book "Stop al Panico!
Difesa legale, note per una maggiore consapevolezza", "Don't Panic!Legal defense, notes for greater awareness" - Bologna march
2018, suggests use Tails (p 132) for high needs of anonimity, to circumvent the
censorships, or to manage in an easy way confidential communications. 
The writers: <https://mutuosoccorso.noblogs.org/>
The distribution of the book: <https://www.openddb.it/libri/stop-al-panico/>

- sajolida did an interview with Simply Secure on our [UX process and formative
  testing](https://simplysecure.org/blog/formative-testing).

  for Human Rights Defenders in
