## Upgrades and changes
- Upgrade *Tor Browser* to version 5.0.3 (based on
Firefox 38.3.0esr).
- Upgrade *I2P* to version 0.9.22 and enable its AppArmor profile.
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](
## Fixed problems
- Fix several issues related to *MAC address spoofing*:
* If MAC address spoofing fails for some network interface *and*
it cannot be disabled afterwards, networking should now be
completely disabled.
* If MAC address spoofing causes network issues (e.g. due to the
access point blocking all but whitelisted MAC addresses) a
notification should now be properly displayed.
