You can help Tails! The first release candidate for the upcoming
version 3.2 is out. We are very excited and cannot wait to hear what
you think about it :)

What's new in 3.2~rc1?
Significant changes since Tails 3.1 include:
* Upgrade to Tails Installer 4.4.19, which gets rid of the splash
screen, detects when Tails already is installed on the target device
(and then proposes to upgrade), and generally improves the UX. We
are _very_ interested in reports about problems with this new
version of Tails Installer.
* Switch from the Florence on-screen keyboard to GNOME's screen
keyboard. We know this move has both advantages and disadvantages,
for instance very few layouts are supported. Please let us know of
any problems!
* The Root Terminal has gone through some significant back-end
changes; please make sure it works like before (or better)!
* Add PPPoE support; if you have a DSL or dial-up connection that uses
PPPoE, please give it a try!
* Bluetooth support is now completely disabled (details:
[[!tails_ticket 14655]]). If this makes it hard for you to use
Tails, please let us know!
* Upgrade to Linux 4.12.12, which improves hardware support,
e.g. better support for the NVIDIA Maxwell series of graphics cards.
* Upgrade to Thunderbird 52.3.0. Ideally it should work exactly like
before, or better.
Technical details of all the changes are listed in the
