Re: Tor is out

Can I please clarify something.

The latest stable release for Windows and Ubuntu is called

My version for Ubuntu is 

If one has placed the correct commands in one's /etc/apt/sources.list as detailed here (https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en) then why is it that Synpaptic Package Manager has not asked me if I want to download

I have also just done sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get update and still I am using

I see that you can manually download and install the with the tarball but here (https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en) the page says to use the sources.list option if one is using Ubuntu.

I am curious how to get in the preferred way when using Ubuntu.  Thanks!

Yet another OpenSSL security patch broke its compatibility with Tor:
Tor makes relays work with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b.


Changes in version - 2010-11-21
  o Major bugfixes:
    - Resolve an incompatibility with openssl 0.9.8p and openssl 1.0.0b:
      No longer set the tlsext_host_name extension on server SSL objects;
      but continue to set it on client SSL objects. Our goal in setting
      it was to imitate a browser, not a vhosting server. Fixes bug 2204;
      bugfix on

  o Minor bugfixes:
    - Try harder not to exceed the maximum length of 50 KB when writing
      statistics to extra-info descriptors. This bug was triggered by very
      fast relays reporting exit-port, entry, and dirreq statistics.
      Reported by Olaf Selke. Bugfix on Fixes bug 2183.
    - Publish a router descriptor even if generating an extra-info
      descriptor fails. Previously we would not publish a router
      descriptor without an extra-info descriptor; this can cause fast
      exit relays collecting exit-port statistics to drop from the
      consensus. Bugfix on; fixes bug 2195.
