Hi folks,

We're getting close to having ready. I've put snapshots at






Please grab it, try it out, and let us know whether we broke anything.


Partial list of changes in version - 2007-10-??
  o Major bugfixes (crashes):
    - If a connection is shut down abruptly because of something that
      happened inside connection_flushed_some(), do not call
      connection_finished_flushing(). Should fix bug 451:
      "connection_stop_writing: Assertion conn->write_event failed"
      Bugfix on
    - Fix possible segfaults in functions called from

  o Major bugfixes (other):
    - Stop publishing a new server descriptor just because we get a
      HUP signal. This led (in a roundabout way) to some servers getting
      dropped from the networkstatus lists for a few hours each day.
    - Hidden services were choosing introduction points uniquely by
      hexdigest, but when constructing the hidden service descriptor
      they merely wrote the (potentially ambiguous) nickname.
    - Clients now use the v2 intro format for hidden service
      connections: they specify their chosen rendezvous point by identity
      digest rather than by (potentially ambiguous) nickname. These
      changes could speed up hidden service connections dramatically.
    - When looking for a circuit to cannibalize, consider family as well
      as identity. Fixes bug 438. Bugfix on 0.1.0.x (which introduced
      circuit cannibalization).

  o Minor bugfixes:
    - Don't try to access (or alter) the state file when running
      --list-fingerprint or --verify-config or --hash-password. (Resolves
      bug 499.)
    - When generating information telling us how to extend to a given
      router, do not try to include the nickname if it is
      absent. (Resolves bug 467.)
    - Fix a user-triggerable segfault in expand_filename(). (There isn't
      a way to trigger this remotely.)
    - When sending a status event to the controller telling it that an
      OR address is readable, set the port correctly. (Previously we
      were reporting the dir port.)
    - Fix a minor memory leak whenever a controller sends the PROTOCOLINFO
      command. Bugfix on
    - When loading bandwidth history, do not believe any information in
      the future. Fixes bug 434.
    - When loading entry guard information, do not believe any information
      in the future.
    - When we have our clock set far in the future and generate an
      onion key, then re-set our clock to be correct, we should not stop
      the onion key from getting rotated.
    - On some platforms, accept() can return a broken address. Detect
      this more quietly, and deal accordingly. Fixes bug 483.
    - It's not actually an error to find a non-pending entry in the DNS
      cache when canceling a pending resolve. Don't log unless stuff
      is fishy. Resolves bug 463.
