Changes and updates
Update Tor Browser to 12.5.
Tor Browser 12.5 has a new circuit view and better information about onion services.
Support onion service authentication in Tor Browser.
For example, onion service authentication is used by OnionShare outside of Tails.
Display the version of Tails in the Boot Loader
Fix the search of some languages and keyboard layouts. (#19200)
Make the upgrade of the Persistent Storage more reliable:
On some systems, the message "Upgrading the persistent storage" was displayed every time in Tails 5.14 when Tails failed to upgrade one of the cryptographic parameters. (#19734)
On some USB sticks, upgrading the Persistent Storage was too slow and failed with the error message "Upgrade of persistent storage failed". (#19728)
Fix opening documentation links from Tails Installer. (#19870)
Prevent Tor Browser to access information about other Tor circuits. (#19740)
Make the error when scanning the QR code of a bridge more consistent. (#19737)
