We stopped linking to it from the website with this latest
release of Tor Browser. Over a year ago we stated we were going
to remove the plain vidalia bundles in favor of Tor Browser, see

The reasons in that blog post are still valid today. Even moreso as Tor
continues to attract a less-technology savvy userbase.

You can use the tor browser bundle to do the same things you did in the
past with the vidalia bundle, it just comes with a free browser. Or if you
understand the moving components, use one of the bridge/relay-by-default
bundles and reconfigure it, or use the tor expert bundle for your SOCKS
proxy needs.

We stopped distributing polipo a while ago, see
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/6039 for the progress
in getting the references off the page.
