[tor-announce] Tor Browser 8.5.1 is released

Tor Browser 8.5.1 is now available from the Tor Browser Download page [1]
and also from our distribution directory [2].

Tor Browser 8.5.1 is the first bugfix release in the 8.5 series and aims
at mostly fixing regressions and providing small improvements related
to our 8.5 release. Additionally, we disable the WebGL readPixel()
fingerprinting vector [4], realizing, though, that we need a more
holistic approach when trying to deal with the fingerprinting potential
WebGL comes with.
