[tor-talk] OnionBalance 0.1.1 Alpha released - Hidden Service Load Balancing

Hello all,

Today I've released the first version of my OnionBalance tool which is
being developed as part of Tor's Summer of Privacy program.

What is OnionBalance you ask? OnionBalance provides load-balancing and
redundancy for Tor hidden services by distributing client requests to
multiple backend Tor instances. By acting at the Tor circuit level,
OnionBalance can overcome the current issue where all traffic for a Tor
hidden service needs to pass through a single Tor instance (running
mostly on a single core).

This is an alpha release. There are likely bugs which cause the
OnionBalance service to crash or not operate correctly. I would very
much appreciate any feedback or bug reports. In particular I would like
to improve the documentation and make the tool easier for operators to
install and run.

The latest release can be installed right now via the PyPI repository or
from Github [1, 2]

Documentation: https://onionbalance.readthedocs.org

Kind Regards,
Donncha O'Cearbhaill
