and also from our distribution directory [2].

Tor Browser 9.0.1 is the first bugfix release in the 9.0 series and aims
to mostly fix regressions and provide small improvements related to our
9.0 release. Additionally, we are adding a banner on the starting page
for our fundraising campaign Take Back the Internet with Tor [3].

_Known Issue_

For each new release, two members from our team are building the release
separately and compare the result to make sure that it is reproducible [4].
For the 9.0 and 9.0.1 releases, however, an issue [5] that we are still
investigating is making our build not completely deterministic. As a
workaround for this issue, we had to do multiple builds until we got
matching builds. You might need to do the same if you are trying to
reproduce our build [6].
