We are especially proud to present you Tails 5.0, the first version of Tails based on Debian 11 (Bullseye). It brings new versions of a lot of the software included in Tails and new OpenPGP tools.

Nuevas funcionalidades


We added Kleopatra to replace the OpenPGP Applet and the Password and Keys utility, also known as Seahorse.

The OpenPGP Applet was not actively developped anymore and was complicated for us to keep in Tails. The Password and Keys utility was also poorly maintained and Tails users suffered from too many of its issues until now, like #17183.

Kleopatra provides equivalent features in a single tool and is more actively developed.

Cambios y actualizaciones

  • The Additional Software feature of the Persistent Storage is enabled by default to make it faster and more robust to configure your first additional software package.

  • You can now use the Activities overview to access your windows and applications. To access the Activities overview, you can either:

    • Click on the Activities button.
    • Throw your mouse pointer to the top-left hot corner.
    • Press the Super () key on your keyboard.

    You can see your windows and applications in the overview. You can also start typing to search your applications, files, and folders.
