This release fixes [[many security
vulnerabilities|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_4.10]]. You should upgrade as soon as possible.
[[!toc levels=1]]
# New features
- We added a new feature of the Persistent Storage to save the settings
from the Welcome Screen: language, keyboard, and additional settings.
To restore your settings when starting Tails, unlock your Persistent Storage
in the Welcome Screen.

# Changes and updates
- Update *Tor Browser* to [10.0](
- Update *Thunderbird* to [68.12](
- Update *Linux* to 5.7.17. This should improve the support for newer
hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).
- Configure *KeePassXC* to use the new default location *Passwords.kdbx*. ([[!tails_ticket 17286]])
- Update <span class="code">python3-trezor</span> to 0.11.6 to add
compatibility with the new Trezor Model T.
# Fixed problems
- Disable the feature to **Turn on Wi-Fi Hotspot** in the Wi-Fi settings
because it doesn't work in Tails. ([[!tails_ticket 17887]])
For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
