We were particularly proud of [[releasing Tails 3.0|news/version_3.0]] almost at the same time as Debian 9.0 (Stretch) which strengthens our commitment to the free software communities without which Tails wouldn't exist.
We added new features, like [[OnionShare|doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare]] for sharing files, and redesigned other core features, like *Tails Greeter* and *Tails Installer*, to be much easier to use.
We'll soon provide a reproducible build of the ISO image to protect users and developers from a malicious build of our ISO image. This effort was paid for by the Mozilla Open Source Support award which we received in 2016.
We answered 122 bug reports on average each month through our *help desk* and helped many people being safer online. Each user request costs us 6€ on average to proceed. In 2017 our help desk was paid entirely out of donations.
We maintain and update our **infrastructure**. You might not see this effort, but it constitutes a crucial part of our work to verify that everything is functioning correctly, build ISO images, test, make it possible to publish emergency releases faster.
Organizing our own **meetings** and attending conferences in our field is critical to keep our community alive and relevant. But this is usually hard to get funded by grants, so donations help us a lot here.
In 2017, we attended **conferences** and connected to free software and Internet freedom communities in 8 different countries: OTF Summit (USA), 33C3 & Reproducible Builds world summit (Germany), FOSDEM (Belgium), IFF (Spain), Tor dev (Netherlands), GUADEC (United Kingdom), DebConf (Canada), CryptoRave (Brasil).
