## Upgrades and changes
- Upgrade base to Debian 8 (Jessie)
- Upgrade <span class="application">Tor Browser</span> to 5.5, based on Firefox 38.6.0 ESR.
- Change 'systemd' as init system and use it to:
- Sandbox many services using Linux namespaces and make then harder to exploit.
- Make the lauching of Tor and the memory wipe on shutdown more robust.
- Sanitize our code base by replacing many custom scripts.
- Upgrade many firmware packages to improve hardware compatibility.
- Upgrade <span class="application">LibreOffice</span> from 3.5 to 4.3.
- Remove Windows camouflage wich is currently broken in GNOME Shell. We
started working on [!tails_ticket 10830 desc="adding it back"]] but
[[your help is needed|news/windows_camouflage_jessie]]!
## Fixed problems
- Allow <span class="application">Videos</span> to access the DVD drive.
