In parallel with the release of Tor Browser 8.0 to users, the developers behind the secure operating system Tails also announced the deployment of the biggest update to the operating system this year. It is noteworthy that Tails 3.9 integrates Tor Browser 8.0, supports VeraCrypt and automatically installs additional software.
The most notable change on Tails 3.9 is the automatic installation of additional software. When users install any additional Debian packages in Tails, they will be given 2 options: Install Only Once or Install Every Time. The feature is extremely useful for those who often use software that is not packaged in Tails, you can download

To see a list of additional software, simply go to Applications =>System =>Tool =>Additional Software. Here users can view the list and choose to delete any software they want.
The developers also warn that built-in software must be carefully tested to avoid security risks, installing additional packages can circumvent the security layer built into Tails, and advise users not to install too much software.
Another important change is the integration of VeraCrypt, which allows users to access encrypted devices by accessing Applications=> System Tool=> Unlock VeraCrypt Volumes. This feature is added in the Files and Disks utility in the GNOME project and will be available in select upcoming operating systems such as Debian 10 and Ubuntu 18.10.
Finally, there is the integration of Tor Browser 8.0, along with the feature that creates a new circuit for the active tab based on the Firefox Quantum browser. Unfortunately, Tails still requires users to enter information manually to be able to use the Tor browser, download
