# Changes
## New features
- We installed again *GNOME Sound Recorder* to provide a very simple
application for recording sound in addition to the more complex *Audacity*.
Sound clips recorded using *GNOME Sound Recorder* are saved to the *Recordings* folder.
[[!img sound-recorder.png link="no"]]
## Upgrades and changes
- We removed [*I2P*](//, 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 4.9.13. This should improve the support for newer
hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).
## Fixed problems
For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
