* [[Tails VERSION was released on MONTH DAY|news/version_VERSION]] ([major|minor] release).
* Tails VERSION+1 is [[scheduled for MONTH DAY|contribute/calendar]].
The following changes were introduced in Tails VERSION:
XXX: Copy the "Changes" section of the release notes, and compact a bit:
- Remove lines about software upgrade (that's not Tails itself).
- Remove screenshots.
- Remove "New features" and "Upgrades and changes" headlines.
- Remove line about Changelog.
* [[Tails 2.6 was released on September 20|news/version_2.6]] ([major] release).
* Tails 2.7 is [[scheduled for November 8|contribute/calendar]].
The following changes were introduced in Tails 2.6:
- We enabled [[!wikipedia address space layout randomization]] in the Linux
kernel (`kASLR`) to improve protection from buffer overflow attacks.
- We installed [[`rngd`|contribute/design/random#rngd]] to improve the
entropy of the random numbers generated on computers that have
a hardware random number generator.
- Install firmware for Intel SST sound cards (`firmware-intel-sound`).
- Install firmware for Texas Instruments Wi-Fi interfaces (`firmware-ti-connectivity`).
- Remove `non-free` APT repositories. We documented how to [[configure
additional APT repositories|doc/advanced_topics/additional_software#repository]]
using the persistent volume.
- Use a dedicated page as the homepage of *Tor Browser* so we can customize
it for our users.
- Set up the trigger for RAM erasure on shutdown earlier in the boot
process. This should speed up shutdown and make RAM erasure more robust.
- Disable the automatic configuration of *Icedove* when using [[!wikipedia OAuth]].
This should fix the automatic configuration for GMail accounts. ([[!tails_ticket 11536]])
- Make the *Disable all networking* and *Tor bridge mode* options of *Tails
Greeter* more robust. ([[!tails_ticket 11593]])

Unfortunately, this has to be done on the command line since *Tails
Installer* is not listed in the new *Ubuntu Software* yet. But we are
working on fixing this ([[!tails_ticket 11569]]).

This took a while, but led to several nice discussions on the mailing list
meanwhile and helped to make the process more clear.
- We worked with Monkeysign on documenting it for Tails and for the new documentation
