Tails 2.12 arrives with reinforced security

TAILS

Lovers of sailing safely they are in luck, since the Tails operating system has released a new version, 2.12, a version that comes with news related mostly to security.

Tails is known to be a very secure operating system, so secure that it is used by very influential people in this anonymous browsing. One of them is Edward Snowden, which navigates from Tails to be able to do it without being discovered.

Tails 2.12 is surely the latest version of the Tails 2.X saga, as the long-awaited Tails 3 is just around the corner. At the moment, we have this latest version to open little.

Tails 2.12 comes with all kinds of security patches to guarantee anonymity, something that in this distribution is essential. Another of its great novelties is the inclusion of the new kernel 4.19.13, which improves compatibility with next-generation hardware.

By supuesto TOR browser has been updated, which is the cornerstone of Tails. TOR version 6.5.2 is based on Firefox 45.9.0 and is right now the most popular option for browsing anonymously.

However, not everything was going to be good news for lovers of anonymity. Tails no longer supports I2P networksas it was too expensive to maintain support for this network and at the moment the Tails team is too busy to do so.

The other important change is that popular recording software Audacity has been removed for being too complex to use. This was replaced by the popular Gnome Sound, which is capable of recording sound in a much easier way.

Download Tails 2.12, do it from its official website. Remember that there is little more than a month left for version 3 of Tails, since the 13 June we will already have it available.
