is a rebundled version of the Vidalia-Privoxy bundle that comes out on the torproject.org
website. This project was created in order to allow the end user full
functionality, optimal disk space, and easy adaptation of portable
applications with the Tor network. It can run on a flash drive, a
desktop, external drive, iPod, and if modified, even on a solid medium,
such as a CD.
A new version of PortableTor
been released (and is released every stable update.) based on
0.1.2.19-0.0.16 Vidalia and Privoxy bundle. This is a medium-level update that affects client logging of information.
Debugger information was set to verbose (debug 1) via privoxy,
causing PortableTor to log traffic made locally. This new version fixes
this configuration default to save logging space and provide even more
You will also notice that the new version of PortableTor uses a new
file format compatible with the PortableApps format of applications. We
are continuing development of this package for interoperability, but as
of right now, PortableTor is not an officially signed package, it just
works with the system anyway. Part of this effort also allows
PortableTor to regenerate configuration files if it finds they have
become deleted or corrupted.
We are still working on new ways to bring PortableTor to new devices and storage mediums.
