body:
We are especially proud to present you Tails 5.0, the first version of Tails based on Debian 11 (Bullseye). It brings new versions of a lot of the software included in Tails and new OpenPGP tools.
# New features
## Kleopatra
We added [_Kleopatra_](https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/kleopatra/) to replace the _OpenPGP Applet_ and the _Password and Keys_ utility, also known as _Seahorse_.
The _OpenPGP Applet_ was not actively developped anymore and was complicated for us to keep in Tails. The _Password and Keys_ utility was also poorly maintained and Tails users suffered from too many of its issues until now, like [#17183](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/17183).
_Kleopatra_ provides equivalent features in a single tool and is more actively developed.
# Changes and updates
* The Additional Software feature of the Persistent Storage is enabled by default to make it faster and more robust to configure your first additional software package.
* You can now use the Activities overview to access your windows and applications. To access the Activities overview, you can either:
* Click on the **Activities** button.
* Throw your mouse pointer to the top-left hot corner.
* Press the **Super** key on your keyboard.
You can see your windows and applications in the overview. You can also start typing to search your applications, files, and folders.
## Included software
Most included software has been upgraded in Debian 11, for example:
* Update _Tor Browser_ to [11.0.11](https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-11011).
* Update _GNOME_ from 3.30 to 3.38, with lots of small improvements to the desktop, the core _GNOME_ utilities, and the locking screen.
* Update _MAT_ from 0.8 to 0.12, which adds support to clean metadata from SVG, WAV, EPUB, PPM, and Microsoft Office files.
* Update _Audacity_ from 2.2.2 to 2.4.2.
* Update _Disk Utility_ from 3.30 to 3.38.
* Update _GIMP_ from 2.10.8 to 2.10.22.
* Update _Inkscape_ from 0.92 to 1.0.
* Update _LibreOffice_ from 6.1 to 7.0.
## Hardware support
* The new support for driverless printing and scanning in Linux makes it easier to make recent printers and scanners work in Tails.
# Fixed problems
* Fix unlocking _VeraCrypt_ volumes that have very long passphrases. ([\#17474](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/17474))
For more details, read our [changelog](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/blob/master/debian/changelog).
# Known issues
* _Additional Software_ sometimes doesn't work when restarting for the first time right after creating a Persistent Storage. ([\#18839](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/18839))
To solve this, install the same additional software package again after restarting with the Persistent Storage for the first time.
* _Thunderbird_ displays a popup to choose an application when opening links. ([\#18913](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/18913))
* _Tails Installer_ sometimes fails to clone. ([\#18844](https://gitlab.tails.boum.org/tails/tails/-/issues/18844))
See the list of [long-standing issues](https://tails.boum.org/support/known_issues/).
# Get Tails 5.0
## To upgrade your Tails USB stick and keep your persistent storage
* Automatic upgrades are not available to 5.0.
All users have to do a [manual upgrade](https://tails.boum.org/doc/upgrade/#manual).
## To install Tails on a new USB stick

* [Install from Windows](https://tails.boum.org/install/windows/)

* [Install from Linux](https://tails.boum.org/install/linux/)
* [Install from Debian or Ubuntu using the command line and GnuPG](https://tails.boum.org/install/expert/)
The Persistent Storage on the USB stick will be lost if you install instead of upgrading.
