[[!toc levels=1]]

* Security fixes

    the browser.

  - Incremental upgrades are ready for beta-testing.

* Bugfixes
  - Fix Vidalia startup.
  - Disable DPMS screen blanking.
  - Fix checking of the persistent volume's ACL.
  - Sanitize more IP and MAC addresses in bug reports.
  - Do not fail USB upgrade when the "tmp" directory exists on the
    destination device.

* Minor improvements
  - Clearer warning when deleting the persistent volume.
  - Use IBus instead of SCIM.
  - Always list optimal keyboard layout in the greeter.
  - Fix on-the-fly translation of the greeter in various languages.
  - Update I2P to 0.9.8.1 and rework its configuration.

See the [online
Changelog](https://git-tails.immerda.ch/tails/plain/debian/changelog)
for technical details.

# Known issues

* The Unsafe Browser cannot connect to the Internet ([[!tails_ticket
  6479]]). This can be workaround'ed by setting
  `network.proxy.socks_remote_dns` to `false` on the
  [about:config](about:config) web page.
* Keyboard shortcuts use QWERTY mapping instead of AZERTY on French
  keyboard ([[!tails_ticket 6478]]). This may impact other keyboard
  layouts as well.
* TorBrowser takes too long to shutdown ([[!tails_ticket 6480]]).
* TorBrowser proposes to share the microphone with websites
  ([[!tails_ticket 6481]]).
* htpdate uses a different User-Agent than the Tor Browser
  ([[!tails_ticket 6477]]).
* The included Linux 3.10-3 (version 3.10.11-1) kernel has a few known
  security issues.
* [[Longstanding|support/known_issues]] known issues.
