Tor 0.0.9.3 is out
Tor 0.0.9.3 improves cpu usage, works better when the network was recently
offline and you try to use Tor, and makes hidden services less unbearable.
o Bugfixes on 0.0.9:
- Backport the cpu use fixes from main branch, so busy servers won't
need as much processor time.
- Work better when we go offline and then come back, or when we
run Tor at boot before the network is up. We do this by
optimistically trying to fetch a new directory whenever an
application request comes in and we think we're offline -- the
human is hopefully a good measure of when the network is back.
- Backport some minimal hidserv bugfixes: keep rend circuits open as
long as you keep using them; actually publish hidserv descriptors
shortly after they change, rather than waiting 20-40 minutes.
- Enable Mac startup script by default.
- Fix duplicate dns_cancel_pending_resolve reported by Giorgos Pallas.
- When you update AllowUnverifiedNodes or FirewallPorts via the
controller's setconf feature, we were always appending, never
- When you update HiddenServiceDir via setconf, it was screwing up
the order of reading the lines, making it fail.
- Do not rewrite a cached directory back to the cache; otherwise we
will think it is recent and not fetch a newer one on startup.
- Workaround for webservers that lie about Content-Encoding: Tor
now tries to autodetect compressed directories and compression
itself. This lets us Proxypass dir fetches through apache.
