New features

Metadata Cleaner

We added Metadata Cleaner, a new tool to clean metadata from your files.

When we switched to MAT 0.8.0 in Tails 4.0, MAT lost its graphical interface and was only accessible from the contextual menu of the Files browser. It became especially hard for new users of Tails to learn how to clean their files. Metadata Cleaner fixes this by providing a simple and easily discoverable graphic interface to remove metadata.

Metadata Cleaner works on the same file formats and is as secure as MAT because Metadata Cleaner also uses MAT in the background to do the actual cleaning.

Known issues

Progress bar of Tor Connection getting stuck around 50%

When using a custom Tor obfs4 bridge, the progress bar of Tor Connection sometimes gets stuck halfway through and becomes extremely slow. (#19173)

Per risolvere questo problema, è possibile:

  • Chiudi e riapri Tor Connection per accelerare la connessione iniziale.

  • Try a different obfs4 bridge.

    We believe that this issue should not happen with an up-to-date bridge running obfs4proxy version 0.0.12 or later.

See the list of long-standing issues.
