Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.4, is out.
This release fixes [[numerous security
issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_1.3.2]] and all users must
[[upgrade|doc/first_steps/upgrade]] as soon as possible.
## New features
- *Tor Browser* 4.5 now has a **[[security slider|doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser#security_slider]]** that you can use to
security and usability. The security slider is set to *low* by
default to provide the same level of security as previous versions
and the most usable experience.
We disabled in Tails the new circuit view of *Tor Browser* 4.5 for
security reasons. You can still use the network map of *Vidalia* to
inspect your circuits.
- *Tails OpenPGP Applet* now has a **shortcut to the *gedit* text
editor**, thanks to Ivan Bliminse.
- ***[[Paperkey|doc/advanced_topics/paperkey]]*** lets you print a
backup of your OpenPGP secret keys on paper.
## Upgrades and changes
- *Tor Browser* 4.5 protects better against **third-party tracking**. Often
when visiting a website, many connections are created to transfer
both the content of the main website (its page, images, and so on)
and third-party content from other websites (advertisements, *Like*
buttons, and so on). In *Tor Browser* 4.5, all such content, from
the main website as well as the third-party websites, goes through
the same Tor circuits. And these circuits are not reused when
visiting a different website. This prevents third-party websites
from correlating your visits to different websites.
- *Tor Browser* 4.5 now keeps using the **same Tor circuit** while you are visiting a
website. This prevents the website from suddenly changing language,
behavior, or logging you out.
- ***[Disconnect](https://search.disconnect.me/)*** is the new
**default search engine**. *Disconnect* provides Google search
results to Tor users without captchas or bans.
- Better support for **Vietnamese** in *LibreOffice* through the
installation of `fonts-linuxlibertine`.
- Disable security warnings when connecting to POP3 and IMAP ports
that are mostly used for StartTLS nowadays.
- Support for **more printers** through the installation of
- Upgrade **Tor** to 0.2.6.7.
- Upgrade ***I2P*** to [0.9.19](https://geti2p.net/en/blog/post/2015/04/12/0.9.19-Release)
that has several fixes and improvements for floodfill
- Remove the obsolete **#i2p-help IRC channel** from *Pidgin*.
- Remove the command line email client **`mutt`** and **`msmtp`**.
There are numerous other changes that might not be apparent in the daily
operation of a typical user. Technical details of all the changes
are listed in the [Changelog](https://git-tails.immerda.ch/tails/plain/debian/changelog).
## Fixed problems
- Make the browser theme of the Windows 8 camouflage compatible with
the *Unsafe Browser* and the *I2P Browser*.
