[tor-talk] TorBirdy 0.0.10 released - testing and feedback requested!


TorBirdy 0.0.10 is now out and it's probably safe enough to be used by
mere mortals. It's still quite experimental - of course. Use as your own

Call for help:

We're looking for assistance with Translations - if you'd like to
translate TorBirdy, we'd gladly accept a patch that prepares TorBirdy
for translation work.

General content anonymity caution note:

working on merging an upstream patch that will allow these leaks to be
closed. There are no known proxy leaks unless you use additional
extensions that do not respect the proxy settings of Thunderbird
