## Upgrades and changes

29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37
  - Upgrade *Tor* to 0.2.9.9.

  - Upgrade *Tor Browser* to 6.5.

  - Upgrade *Linux* to 4.8. This should improve the support for newer
    hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.)

  - Upgrade *Icedove* to 45.6.0.

38
  - Replace *AdBlock Plus* with *uBlock Origin*.
39 40 41 42 43 44

  - Configure the *APT* package manage to use Debian's Onion services.

  - Install the *AMDGPU* display driver. This should improve the
    support for newer AMD graphics adapters.

45
  - Renamed the *Boot Loader Menu* entries from "Live" to "Tails", and
46 47 48
    replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting
    Mode".

49
  - Add support for [[!wikipedia exFAT]].
50

51
  - Remove *Nyx* (previously called *arm*).
52

53
  - Rewrite *Tor control port filter* entirely. Now Tails can safely
54 55 56 57
    support *OnionShare*, the circuit view of *Tor Browser*, and
    similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar
    piece of software with this one.

58 59
## Fixed problems

60 61
  - Made *OnionCircuits* compatible with the *Orca* screen reader.
