Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.0, is out.
All users must upgrade as soon as possible: this release fixes numerous security issues
We are especially proud to present you Tails 1.0!
Version 1.0 is often an important milestone that denotes the maturity of a free software project. The first public version of what would become Tails was released on June 23 2009, when it was called Amnesia. That was almost five years ago. Tails 1.0 marks the 36th stable release since then. Achievements
We have been working since then on the many features we think are essential both in terms of security and usability:
- USB installer
- automatic upgrades
- support for Tor bridges and other special Tor configuration
- MAC address spoofing
- extensive and translated documentation
- and many more...
But this has been a continuous work over the past years, and you will see that 1.0 itself does not bring a lot of effective changes for the user. Still, to mark the occasion, we integrated our new logo on the website and the boot menu.
