Tor 0.1.1.21 fixes minor stability and protocol correctness problems, mainly for Tor servers. We've also upgraded the Windows bundle with Vidalia 0.0.5, and we're linking to a new OS X bundle with Vidalia 0.0.5 (finally a better interface for Mac users!). Lastly, we've added support for SUSE-style RPM packages. We're still tracking down some reported bugs in Tor server reachability testing. http://tor.eff.org/download.html Changes in version 0.1.1.21 - 2006-06-10 o Crash and assert fixes from 0.1.1.20: - Fix a rare crash on Tor servers that have enabled hibernation. - Fix a seg fault on startup for Tor networks that use only one directory authority. - Fix an assert from a race condition that occurs on Tor servers while exiting, where various threads are trying to log that they're exiting, and delete the logs, at the same time. - Make our unit tests pass again on certain obscure platforms. o Other fixes: - Add support for building SUSE RPM packages. - Speed up initial bootstrapping for clients: if we are making our first ever connection to any entry guard, then don't mark it down right after that. - When only one Tor server in the network is labelled as a guard, and we've already picked him, we would cycle endlessly picking him again, being unhappy about it, etc. Now we specifically exclude current guards when picking a new guard. - Servers send create cells more reliably after the TLS connection is established: we were sometimes forgetting to send half of them when we had more than one pending. - If we get a create cell that asks us to extend somewhere, but the Tor server there doesn't match the expected digest, we now send a destroy cell back, rather than silently doing nothing. - Make options->RedirectExit work again. - Make cookie authentication for the controller work again. - Stop being picky about unusual characters in the arguments to mapaddress. It's none of our business. - Add a new config option "TestVia" that lets you specify preferred middle hops to use for test circuits. Perhaps this will let me debug the reachability problems better. o Log / documentation fixes: - If we're a server and some peer has a broken TLS certificate, don't log about it unless ProtocolWarnings is set, i.e., we want to hear about protocol violations by others. - Fix spelling of VirtualAddrNetwork in man page. - Add a better explanation at the top of the autogenerated torrc file about what happened to our old torrc.
