[[!meta title="Tails 2.12 is out"]]
[[!tag announce]]

This release fixes [[many security
issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_2.11]] and users should
upgrade as soon as possible.

[[!toc levels=1]]

# Changes

## New features

- We installed again *GNOME Sound Recorder* to provide a very simple
  application for recording sound in addition to the most complex *Audacity*.

XXX: Link to documentation (#11780)
XXX: Add screenshot

## Upgrades and changes

- We removed [*I2P*](//geti2p.net/), an alternative anonymity network, because
  we unfortunately have failed to find a developer to maintain *I2P* in Tails.
  Maintaining software like *I2P* well-integrated in Tails takes time and
  effort and our team is too busy with other priorities.

- Upgrade *Linux* to 4.9.0.

## Fixed problems

For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].

# Known issues

None specific to this release.

See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].

# Get Tails 2.12

- To upgrade, automatic upgrades are available from 2.10 and 2.11 to 2.12.

  If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if you fail to start after an
  automatic upgrade, please try to do a [[manual upgrade|upgrade]].

# What's coming up?

Our next release is [[scheduled|contribute/calendar]] for June 13:

- If Debian Stretch is released after June 13, our next release will be 2.13.
- Otherwise, we will try to publish 3.0 before June 13 at the same time as
  Debian Stretch which release schedule has not been announced yet. You can
  already [[test a beta version of Tails 3.0|news/test_3.0-beta3]].

XXX: Warn intrigeri about this link and the unclear order between beta4 and 2.12.

Have a look at our [[!tails_roadmap]] to see where we are heading to.

Tails|contribute]] ([[donating|donate#2.12]] is only one of
