As part of our current donation campaign, we recently explained why we need donations and what we accomplished this year. Today we are sharing with you some of our plans for the next years:

Applications and features

  • Tails Server: run onion services from Tails (VoIP chat rooms, collaboration tools, web servers, messaging servers, etc.) (#5688, Blueprint). (Planned for early 2018.)
  • VeraCrypt support in GNOME: graphical utilities to mount VeraCrypt volumes (#11684, #6337, Blueprint). (Planned for late 2018.)
  • Graphical interface for the Additional Packages persistent feature: allow users to customize which applications are available in their Tails (#14568, Blueprint). (Planned for late 2018.)

User research and support

  • Power our help desk with a request tracker to know better how to help our user base at large (#9803, Blueprint)
  • Web translation platform We have received a grant from Lush Digital fund to set up a translation platform for our website. This platform shall make it easier for translators to translate our documentation, and to have our website translated into more languages (#10034). (Planned for late 2018.)

Better adoption

  • Rethink the installation and upgrade process in depth and reflect on the future of Tails Installer, the installation on Windows and macOS, and automatic upgrades (#11679)
  • Give some love to our troubleshooting documentation:

Resistance to remote exploitation

  • Persistent Tor state to have persistent entry guards (#5462, Blueprint)
  • Persistent seed for random number generator to have stronger crypto (#7675, Blueprint)
  • Have critical parts of Tails audited (#14508)

以上是我們認為重要且需要優先排序的項目,但投入這些工作的確要花不少精力資源包含時間和金錢,但每天工作中最優先的是單純地先讓這個專案能存活下來。

如果希望這個專案能發展地更迅速,請花一分鐘進行捐助。
