* Tails 4.3 was released on February 11. (bugfix release)
* Tails 4.4 is scheduled for March 12.
The following changes were introduced in Tails 4.3:
- We included the `trezor` package, which provides a command line tool
to use a Trezor hardware wallet for cryptocurrencies.
- Fix the progress bar and prevent closing the window while an upgrade
is being applied. (#16603)
- We made great progress on Secure boot support (#6560)
and are now quite confident we can ship this in Tails 4.5 (April 7).
Thanks to everyone who answered our call for testing!
- In order to make the development process a bit smoother, we improved
the performance of our builds (#17439, #17386).
- We kept working on replacing Sikuli in our test suite (#15460), which
will allow running it on recent Debian systems. We're almost there! :)
