    The release date for Tails 1.4.1 had been postponed because Mozilla changed their release schedule. It was released in the beginning of July. Once again, this report consists of non-code news :)


    Documentation and website

    User experience


    • Our test suite covers 185 scenarios, 3 more than in May. We removed outdated scenarios again, so there are more than 3 new tests :) New tests add coverage for the Tor Browser's New Identity feature and confirm that the hardware clock is not updated by Tails. Additionally, a huge amount of work was put into making our test suite more robust.

    • We decided to publicly archive the tails-support mailing list, since external websites were archiving it anyway.

    • Great progress was made towards automatically building all active branches with Jenkins. Live deployment is now a matter of days.

    • We have specified the requirements for our upcoming monitoring system.

    • If you want to help us develop and maintain Tails, please donate :)

    • We sent our final report for the Access Innovation Prize received in March 2014.

    • We submitted our second quarterly report to the Digital Defenders Partnership.

    Upcoming events

    • A talk about Tails will take place during DebConf15 in August in Heidelberg, Germany.

    • Please let us know if you organize an event about Tails, we'll be glad to announce it :)
