You can help Tails! The first release candidate for the upcoming version

[[!toc levels=1]]

How to test Tails 0.22.1~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. Either try the <a href="#automatic_upgrade">automatic upgrade</a>, or
   download the ISO image and its signature:

   <a class="download-file" href="http://dl.amnesia.boum.org/tails/alpha/tails-i386-0.22.1~rc1/tails-i386-0.22.1~rc1.iso" >Tails 0.22.1~rc1 ISO image</a>

   <a class="download-signature"
   href="https://tails.boum.org/torrents/files/tails-i386-0.22.1~rc1.iso.sig">Tails 0.22.1~rc1 signature</a>

1. Verify the ISO image.

1. Have a look at the list of <a href="#known_issues">known issues
   of this release</a> and the list of [[longstanding known
   issues|support/known_issues]].

1. 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
<a href="#known_issues">known issue of this release</a> or a
[[longstanding known issue|support/known_issues]].
