Tails, The Amnesic Incognito Live System, version 1.5, is out.

This release fixes [numerous security issues](https://tails.boum.org/news/../security/Numerous_security_holes_in_1.4.1/index.en.html) and all users must [upgrade](https://tails.boum.org/news/../doc/first_steps/upgrade/index.en.html) as soon as possible.

# Changes

## New features

  * **Disable access to the local network** in the _Tor Browser_. You should now use the _Unsafe Browser_ to access the local network.

## Upgrades and changes

  * Install _Tor Browser_ 5.0 (based on Firefox 38esr).
  * Install a _32-bit GRUB EFI boot loader_. Tails should now start on some tablets with Intel Bay Trail processors among others.
  * Let the user know when _Tails Installer_ has rejected a device because it is too small.

There are numerous other changes that might not be apparent in the daily operation of a typical user. Technical details of all the changes are listed in the [Changelog](https://git-tails.immerda.ch/tails/plain/debian/changelog).

## Fixed problems

  * Our _AppArmor_ setup has been audited and improved in various ways which should harden the system.
  * The network should now be properly disabled when _MAC address spoofing_ fails.
