Release section (for example, the changes being worked on for
the next version).
- We released [*Tails Verification*
1.0](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tails-verification/)
with some minor improvements from an expert review, updated jQuery and
Forge libraries, and a fixed download link on retry.
We also [[documented the security aspects of *Tails
Verification*|contribute/design/verification_extension#inside_the_browser]].
Documentation and website
=========================
XXX: If you feel like it and technical writers don't do it
themselves, explore the Git history:
We documented how to:
- [[Save the configuration of your
displays|doc/first_steps/persistence/configure#displays]] if you have
more than one display (for example, two monitors or a projector).
- [[Reproduce a bug in Debian|doc/first_steps/bug_reporting#debian]]
when reporting an error (for advanced users).
- [[Use *Tails Installer* to do a manual upgrade from
3.5|upgrade/tails#3.5]] in languages others than English.
git log --patch --since='1 October' --until='1 November' origin/master -- "*.*m*"
We also made the [[output of the GnuPG command line to verify an ISO
image|install/download#openpgp]] more consistent across different
versions of GnuPG.
User experience
===============
XXX: If you feel like it and the UX team does not do it
themselves, check the archives of tails-ux:

- From a session at the Internet Freedom Festival, we took notes on how
[[participants used the metaphor of a tent to describe
Tails|blueprint/explain_tails#iff]]:
- It's *portable*: you can store it in your backpack.
- It's *amnesic*: it's empty every time you set it up.
- It's *incognito*: you can move it around and it look like other tents
- We started discussing a collaboration with [Simply
Secure](https://simplysecure.org/) to explain better what is Tails.
The goals are both to reach a consensus among contributor and to make
it easier to explain Tails to the world.
