[tor-talk] Tor 0.2.9.6-rc is released.
Hi, all! There is a new release candidate for the Tor source code,
with numerous bugfixes.
You can download the source from the usual place on the website.
Packages should be up in a few days. This should appear in an alpha
TorBrowser release around December 14.
(There is also a concurrent release of Tor 0.2.8.10; for stable
announcements, please see tor-announce@ or the blog.)
Please test this one out: we hope it can become a stable release soon.
Changes in version 0.2.9.6-rc - 2016-12-02
Tor 0.2.9.6-rc fixes a few remaining bugs found in the previous alpha
version. We hope that it will be ready to become stable soon, and we
encourage everyone to test this release. If no showstopper bugs are
found here, the next 0.2.9 release will be stable.
o Major bugfixes (relay, resolver, logging):
- For relays that don't know their own address, avoid attempting a
local hostname resolve for each descriptor we download. This
will cut down on the number of "Success: chose address 'x.x.x.x'"
log lines, and also avoid confusing clock jumps if the resolver
is slow. Fixes bugs 20423 and 20610; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (client, fascistfirewall):
- Avoid spurious warnings when ReachableAddresses or FascistFirewall
is set. Fixes bug 20306; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (hidden services):
- Stop ignoring the anonymity status of saved keys for hidden
services and single onion services when first starting tor.
Instead, refuse to start tor if any hidden service key has been
used in a different hidden service anonymity mode. Fixes bug
20638; bugfix on 17178 in 0.2.9.3-alpha; reported by ahf.
o Minor bugfixes (portability):
- Work around a bug in the OSX 10.12 SDK that would prevent us from
successfully targeting earlier versions of OSX. Resolves
- Run correctly when built on Windows build environments that
require _vcsprintf(). Fixes bug 20560; bugfix on 0.2.2.11-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (single onion services, Tor2web):
- Stop complaining about long-term one-hop circuits deliberately
created by single onion services and Tor2web. These log messages
are intended to diagnose issue 8387, which relates to circuits
hanging around forever for no reason. Fixes bug 20613; bugfix on
0.2.9.1-alpha. Reported by "pastly".
o Minor bugfixes (unit tests):
- Stop spurious failures in the local interface address discovery
unit tests. Fixes bug 20634; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha; patch by
- Correct the minimum bandwidth value in torrc.sample, and queue a
corresponding change for torrc.minimal. Closes ticket 20085.
