You should upgrade as soon as possible.

# Changes and upgrades

* Use <https://keys.openpgp.org/>, also available on <https://zkaan2xfbuxia2wpf7ofnkbz6r5zdbbvxbunvp5g2iebopbfc4iqmbad.onion/>, as the default OpenPGP key server.

    * keys.openpgp.org is more trustworthy than other OpenPGP public key servers because it only references an OpenPGP public key after sending a confirmation email to the email addresses listed in the key.

    * keys.openpgp.org does not distribute third-party signatures, which are the signatures on a key that were made by some other key. Third-party signatures are the signatures used to create the OpenPGP Web of Trust.

    * keys.openpgp.org prevents [OpenPGP certificate flooding attacks](https://dkg.fifthhorseman.net/blog/openpgp-certificate-flooding.html), which can make your OpenPGP keyring unusable and crash your computer.

To learn more about keys.openpgp.org, read their
[About](https://keys.openpgp.org/about) and
[FAQ](https://keys.openpgp.org/about/faq) pages.

* Update _Tor Browser_ to 9.0.2.

* Update _Thunderbird_ to from 60.9.0 to 68.2.2.

* Replace the [_TorBirdy_ extension](https://tails.boum.org/doc/anonymous_internet/thunderbird/index.en.html#torbirdy) with custom settings and patches in _Thunderbird_ that provide equivalent privacy.

* Update _Enigmail_ to [2.1.3](https://enigmail.net/index.php/en/download/changelog), which has a simplified setup wizard that automatically creates an OpenPGP key for new email accounts.

* Update _Linux_ to 5.3.9. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.).

# Fixed problems

* Add back the **Show Passphrase** check box in _Tails Greeter_. ([#17177](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/17177))


* Fix the display of the troubleshooting error when GDM fails to start. ([#17200](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/17200))


* Add back the option to **Open in Terminal** when doing right-click (on Mac, click with two fingers) in a folder in the _Files_ browser. ([#17186](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/17186))

* Make the installation of additional software more reliable. ([#17203](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/17203))
