Can I please clarify
The latest stable release for Windows and Ubuntu is called 0.2.1.27.
My version for Ubuntu is 0.2.1.26.
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 0.2.1.27?
I have also just done sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get update and still I am using 0.2.1.26.
I see that you can manually download and install the 0.2.1.27 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 0.2.1.27 in the preferred way when using Ubuntu. Thanks!

Yet another OpenSSL security patch broke its compatibility with Tor: Tor 0.2.2.19-alpha makes relays work with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b. https://www.torproject.org/download/download Changes in version 0.2.2.19-alpha - 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 0.2.1.1-alpha. 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 0.2.2.1-alpha. 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 0.1.2.9-rc; fixes bug 2195.
