This release fixes [many security issues](https://tails.boum.org/security/Nume
rous_security_holes_in_2.9.1/index.en.html) and users should upgrade as soon
as possible.

# Changes

## New features

  * We installed _[OnionShare_](https://tails.boum.org/doc/anonymous_internet/onionshare/index.en.html), a tool for anonymous file sharing.

  * We enabled the [circuit view](https://tails.boum.org/doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_Browser/index.en.html#circuit_view) in _Tor Browser_.

## Upgrades and changes

  * Upgrade _Tor_ to 0.2.9.9.

  * Upgrade _Tor Browser_ to 6.5.

  * Upgrade _Linux_ to 4.8. This should improve the support for newer hardware (graphics, Wi-Fi, etc.)

  * Upgrade _Icedove_ to 45.6.0.

  * Replace _AdBlock Plus_ with _uBlock Origin_.

  * Configure the _APT_ package manage to use Debian's Onion services.

  * Install the _AMDGPU_ display driver. This should improve the support for newer AMD graphics adapters.

  * Renamed the _Boot Loader Menu_ entries from "Live" to "Tails", and replaced the confusing "failsafe" wording with "Troubleshooting Mode".

  * Add support for [exFAT](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/exFAT).

  * Remove _Nyx_ (previously called _arm_).

  * Rewrite _Tor control port filter_ entirely. Now Tails can safely support _OnionShare_, the circuit view of _Tor Browser_, and similar. This also enabled Whonix to replace their own similar piece of software with this one.

## Fixed problems

  * Made _OnionCircuits_ compatible with the _Orca_ screen reader.
