Tor 0.1.1.16-rc is out
This is the second release candidate for the 0.1.1.x series.
It fixes a variety of odds and ends, including getting started
on making it easier to add new authoritative dirservers.
Changes in version 0.1.1.16-rc - 2006-03-18
o Bugfixes on 0.1.1.15-rc:
- Fix assert when the controller asks to attachstream a connect-wait
or resolve-wait stream.
- Now do address rewriting when the controller asks us to attach
to a particular circuit too. This will let Blossom specify
"moria2.exit" without having to learn what moria2's IP address is.
- Make the "tor --verify-config" command-line work again, so people
can automatically check if their torrc will parse.
- Authoritative dirservers no longer require an open connection from
a server to consider him "reachable". We need this change because
when we add new auth dirservers, old servers won't know not to
hang up on them.
- Let Tor build on Sun CC again.
- Fix an off-by-one buffer size in dirserv.c that magically never
hit our three authorities but broke sjmurdoch's own tor network.
- If we as a directory mirror don't know of any v1 directory
authorities, then don't try to cache any v1 directories.
- Stop warning about unknown servers in our family when they are
given as hex digests.
- Stop complaining as quickly to the server operator that he
hasn't registered his nickname/key binding.
- Various cleanups so we can add new V2 Auth Dirservers.
- Change "AllowUnverifiedNodes" to "AllowInvalidNodes", to
reflect the updated flags in our v2 dir protocol.
- Resume allowing non-printable characters for exit streams (both
for connecting and for resolving). Now we tolerate applications
that don't follow the RFCs. But continue to block malformed names
at the socks side.
o Bugfixes on 0.1.0.x:
- Fix assert bug in close_logs(): when we close and delete logs,
remove them all from the global "logfiles" list.
- Fix minor integer overflow in calculating when we expect to use up
our bandwidth allocation before hibernating.
- Fix a couple of bugs in OpenSSL detection. Also, deal better when
there are multiple SSLs installed with different versions.
- When we try to be a server and Address is not explicitly set and
our hostname resolves to a private IP address, try to use an
interface address if it has a public address. Now Windows machines
that think of themselves as localhost can work by default.
o New features:
- Let the controller ask for GETINFO dir/server/foo so it can ask
directly rather than connecting to the dir port.
- Let the controller tell us about certain router descriptors
that it doesn't want Tor to use in circuits. Implement
SETROUTERPURPOSE and modify +POSTDESCRIPTOR to do this.
- New config option SafeSocks to reject all application connections
using unsafe socks protocols. Defaults to off.
