'Powered by the Linux 4.19.28 kernel, the Tails 3.13 operating system
is now available with latest TOR technologies to help you stay hidden
while surfing the Internet, including the Tor Browser 8.0.7 anonymous
web browser and Tor 0.3.5.8 client and server for the anonymous Tor
network.

However, probably the most important addition in the Tails 3.13
release is the updated Intel microcode to version 3.20180807a.2, which
adds an extra security measure against more variants of the well-known
Spectre, Meltdown, and L1TF (Level 1 Terminal Fault) security
vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, Tails 3.13 updates the Mozilla Thunderbird email and news
client to version 65.1.0, adds support for the Bopomofo input method
and improves support for the Pinyin input method for Chinese users,
and implements automatic backup of the persistent storage's
configuration whenever a change occurs.'
