Re: [tor-talk] Fwd: Orfox v1.4 Beta (based onTor Browser 7.5) is out

We found some new Android/Java leaks in the last build, and have
produced a new beta for testing. The APK for Orfox v1.4 beta 3 is posted

If you are interested in helping test, the "Grey Shirts" provide some
great tools for packet capture and network monitoring, that make it easy
to discover leaks:

Unfortunately, they are not open-source.
