[[!meta title="Tails 2.10 is out"]]
[[!tag announce]]
This release fixes [[many security
issues|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_2.9.1]] and users should
upgrade as soon as possible.
[[!toc levels=1]]
# Changes
## New features
- We installed *OnionShare*, a tool for
anonymous file sharing. For more information, see the
corresponding [[documentation|doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare]].
[[!img version_2.10/onionshare.png link="no"]]
- We enabled the
[[circuit view|doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser#circuit_view]]
in *Tor Browser*.
[[!img doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser/circuit_view.png link="no"]]
## Upgrades and changes
- Upgrade *Tor* to 0.2.9.9.
- Upgrade *Tor Browser* to 6.5.
- Upgrade *Linux* to 4.8. This should improve the support for newer
hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.)
- Upgrade *Icedove* to 45.6.0.
- Replace *AdBlock Plus* with *uBlock Origin*.
- Configure the *APT* package manage to use Debian's Onion services.
- Install the *AMDGPU* display driver. This should improve the
support for newer AMD graphics adapters.
- Renamed the *Boot Loader Menu* entries from "Live" to "Tails", and
replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting
Mode".
- Add support for [[!wikipedia exFAT]].
- Remove *Nyx* (previously called *arm*).
- Rewrite *Tor control port filter* entirely. Now Tails can safely
support *OnionShare*, the circuit view of *Tor Browser*, and
similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar
piece of software with this one.
## Fixed problems
- Made *OnionCircuits* compatible with the *Orca* screen reader.
For more details, read our [[!tails_gitweb debian/changelog desc="changelog"]].
