This release fixes known security vulnerabilities. You should upgrade as soon as possible.
<h1 id="changes">Changes and updates</h1>
- Remove "Synchronizing the system's clock" notification when connecting to Tor network
We removed this notification because it didn't recommend a specific action for
users to take and it was unclear. It might have given users the impression
that they should alter their UTC clock settings. ([[!tails_ticket 7439]])

- Remove Poedit
We now use Weblate to provide translated text for Tails and the Tails website,
so Poedit isn't as necessary. To install Poedit in Tails, see our guide on
Additional Software. ([[!tails_ticket 18236]])
- Update *Tor Browser* to [10.0.16](https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-10016).
- Update *Thunderbird* to [78.9.0-1](https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/78.9.1/releasenotes/).
- Update some Intel and Linux firmware packages. This should improve support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, and so on).
<h1 id="upgrades">Fixed problems</h1>
- Use more reliable Debian repositories
Tails now connects to the APT repositories of Debian using their HTTPS address instead of their .onion address, for increased reliability with
the Additional Software feature.
We left other Tails and Tor Project APT onion sources as is. ([[!tails_ticket 17993]])
Display an error message when the Upgrader fails to download the signing key. This has been a silent error since 4.14. ([[!tails_ticket 18238]])
