This release fixes [numerous security issues](https://tails.boum.org/news/../security/Numerous_security_holes_in_1.8/index.en.html). All users must upgrade as soon as possible.

# Changes

## Upgrades and changes

  * Tor Browser to [5.0.6](https://gitweb.torproject.org/builders/tor-browser-bundle.git/tree/Bundle-Data/Docs/ChangeLog.txt?h=maint-5.0&id=tbb-5.0.6-build1)

## Fixed problems

  * Fix time synchronization in bridge mode.

# Known issues

  * Automatic upgrades are much slower to apply than before. Expect the upgrade to take around an hour _after_ the download is finished. See [#10757](https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/10757) for details.

See the current list of [known issues](https://tails.boum.org/news/../support/known_issues/index.en.html).
