As part of our current donation campaign, we recently explained [[why we need donations|many_hands_make_tails]] and [[what we accomplished this year|what_we_accomplished_in_2017]]. 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.) ([[!tails_ticket 5688]], [[!tails_blueprint tails_server desc="Blueprint"]]). (Planned for early 2018.)
**VeraCrypt support in GNOME**: graphical utilities to mount VeraCrypt volumes ([[!tails_ticket 11684]], [[!tails_ticket 6337]], [[!tails_blueprint veracrypt desc="Blueprint"]]). (Planned for late 2018.)
**Graphical interface for the Additional Packages persistent feature**: allow users to customize which applications are available in their Tails ([[!tails_ticket 14568]], [[!tails_blueprint additional_software_packages desc="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 ([[!tails_ticket 9803]], [[!tails_blueprint RT_for_help_desk desc="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 ([[!tails_ticket 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 ([[!tails_ticket 11679]])
**Give some love to our troubleshooting documentation**:
Our [[known issues page|support/known_issues]] ([[!tails_ticket 11665]])
Computers with unsupported Wi-Fi devices, very common on Mac ([[!tails_ticket 11683]])
Resistance to remote exploitation
**Persistent Tor state** to have persistent entry guards ([[!tails_ticket 5462]], [[!tails_blueprint persistent_Tor_state desc="Blueprint"]])
**Persistent seed for random number generator** to have stronger crypto ([[!tails_ticket 7675]], [[!tails_blueprint randomness_seeding desc="Blueprint"]])
