The Tails project has a rapid release cycle which helps the distribution keep up with bugfixes and changing requirements in on-line security. This rapid cycle of new versions can also introduce problems as it fixes others. The Tails July newsletter outlines a few issues that have appeared recently: "We started the month with Tails 4.8 and many users wrote to us because of problems with the Tails Welcome Screen: They had issues with administration passwords that had special characters. They could not access their persistent storage because changing the language on the Welcome Screen didn't change the keyboard layout as usual, although it claimed to do it. These two issues were very upsetting for the users, although had easy workarounds. They are fixed in Tails 4.9 (Apologies!)." The Tails project estimates that the distribution is booted approximately 30,700 times per day, based on the number of update checks performed the distribution runs when it starts.
