tor-ramdisk 20090926 (i686) and 20090927 (MIPS) released

Hi everyone

I want to announce to the list that a new rlease of tor-ramdisk is out.  Tor-ramdisk is an i686 or MIPS uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy.  Security is enhenced by hardening the kernel and binaries, and privacy is enhanced by forcing logging to be off at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported/imported by FTP.


A new feature was added to both the i686 (release 20090926) and MIPS (release 20090927) ports. The setup scripts and busybox's configuration were modified so that the user can now choose to set up networking either by DHCP or by static assignment.  In all other respects, these releases are the same as their previous coutnerparts.
