Re: Kudos on memory usage in 0.2.X

Hi Roger,

Im in same situation as Matt. Im running Tor exit on VPS, version 0.2.0.x. So each MB of memory is quite bit expensive for me :). Do you personally think that running 0.2.1.x (so experimental branch, but less memory usage) on production machine is a good idea? Stability is the main issue, but I have overall good experience with Tor (except issue with certificates ;).

It sure did. Mainly on Linux.

Great. Glad you like it.

And if you like 0.2.0.x's memory usage, you'll like 0.2.1.x's even more! :)
