<h1 id="upgrades">Clarified user notifications</h1>
This release fixes known security vulnerabilities.
You should upgrade as soon as possible.
- Display an error message when the Upgrader fails to download the signing key. ([[!tails_ticket 18238]])
<h1 id="changes">Changes and updates</h1>
- Remove "clock synchronization" notification from Tor use.
- Remove "Synchronizing the system's clock" notification when connecting to Tor network
We removed this notification because it didn't recommend a specific action for users to take and it was confusing. It might have given users the impression that they should alter their UTC clock settings. ([[!tails_ticket 7439]])

- Remove Poedit
- Update *Tor Browser* to [10.0.15](https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-10015).
We now use Weblate to provide translated text for Tails and the Tails website,
so Poedit isn't as necessary. To install Poedit in Tails, see our guide on
*[[Additional Software|doc/first_steps/additional_software]]* ([[!tails_ticket 18236]])

- Display an error message when the Upgrader fails to download the signing key.
This has been a silent error since 4.14. ([[!tails_ticket 18238]])
- Use more reliable HTTPS sources for Debian's APT repository
We now use non-onion HTTPS sources for the repositories, for increased reliability. We left other Tails and Tor Project APT onion sources as is. ([[!tails_ticket 17993]])
- Replace Mergebasebranch method
A Rake build in non-base branches used to run *before* a base branch merge, creating a confused Git state. Builds now bypass the Mergebasebranch method. ([[!tails_ticket 12557]])
Tails now uses non-onion HTTPS sources to access the repository, for increased reliability with
*[[Additional Software|doc/first_steps/additional_software]]* installation.
We left other Tails and Tor Project APT onion sources as is. ([[!tails_ticket 17993]])
