You can help Tails! The first release candidate for the upcoming
version 3.0 is out. We are very excited and cannot wait to hear what
you think about it :)

# What's new in 3.0~rc1?
Tails 3.0 will be the first version of Tails based on Debian 9
(Stretch). As such, it upgrades essentially all included software.
Changes since Tails 3.0~beta4 include:
* Important security fixes!
* Upgrade to current Debian 9 (Stretch).
* Upgrade tor to
* Upgrade Tor Browser to 7.0a4.
* Migrate from Icedove to Thunderbird (only cosmetic).
Technical details of all the changes are listed in the
# How to test Tails 3.0~rc1?
**We will provide security updates for Tails 3.0~rc1**, just like we do
for stable versions of Tails.
But **keep in mind that this is a test image**. We tested that it is
not broken in obvious ways, but it might still contain
undiscovered issues.
But test wildly!
If you find anything that is not working as it should, please report to
us on <>.
Bonus points if you first check if it is a
<a href="#known_issues">known issue of this release</a> or a
[[longstanding known issue|support/known_issues]].
Get Tails 3.0~rc1
To upgrade, an automatic upgrade is available from 3.0~beta4 to 3.0~rc1.
If you cannot do an automatic upgrade, you can install 3.0~rc1 by
following our usual [[installation instructions|install]], skipping
the **Download and verify** step.

Known issues in 3.0~rc1
* The documentation has only been partially updated so far.
* The graphical interface fails to start on some Intel
graphics adapters. If this happens to you:
1. Add the `xorg-driver=intel` option in the
[[boot menu|doc/first_steps/startup_options#boot_menu]].
2. If this fixes the problem, report to to <>
the output of the following commands:
lspci -v
lspci -mn
… so we get the identifier of your graphics adapter and can have
this fix applied automatically in the next Tails 3.0 pre-release.
3. If this does not fix the problem, try Troubleshooting Mode and
report the problem to <>. Include the exact
model of your Intel graphics adapter.
* There is no <span class="guilabel">Read-Only</span> feature for the
persistent volume anymore; it is not clear yet whether it will be
re-introduced in time for Tails 3.0 final ([[!tails_ticket 12093]]).
* The persistent Tor Browser bookmarks feature is broken if you enable
it for the first time in Tails 3.0~rc1; any persistent bookmarks
from before will still work.
You can workaround this as follows, after you start Tails the first
time with Browser bookmarks persistence enabled:
1. Start Tor Browser and let it load
2. Close Tor Browser
3. Run this in a Terminal:
cp /home/amnesia/.tor-browser/profile.default/places.sqlite \
rm /home/amnesia/.tor-browser/profile.default/places.sqlite*
ln -s /home/amnesia/.mozilla/firefox/bookmarks/places.sqlite \
