  1. The upgrade process is very smooth, and everything I have tried so far seems to work as expected.
    (One minor issue on the upgrade process, with an error relating to exim which I ignored. Since this is removed in the purge afterwards it’s safe to ignore.)
    On the documentation front, everything was fine - however I didn’t seem to have the apparmor file I was instructed to remove. Again,minor importance.

    So a good upgrade experience and working well.

  2. Did a fresh install and update, can confirm that Tor Browser Downloader is working.

    Still get the KdeSudo message upon startup, though everything seems to be working fine.

    • Whonix GW & Whonix WS comes by default with 4 CPUs on :scream: ? should be changed to 1 (Settings - System - Processor - Processors(s) => change it to 1)

    • Whonix GW and Whonix WS the Floppy + Optical are on by default. They need to be disabled for enhanced security.
      (Settings - System - Motherboard - Boot Order - :x::floppy_disk: Floppy & :cd: Optical)

    • Whonix GW Audio should be disabled by default :mute:.
      (Settings - Audio - :x: Enable Audio)

  3. I tested this. Didn’t notice any noticeable performance drawdown. It’s
    also compatible two physical cores only. So this can stay as is until
    performance testing/similar evidence is provided that it’s a problem.
