Tor Browser Bundle for Mac OS X released

Hi everyone,

Tor Browser Bundle for Mac OS X is now available for the i386 architecture in
11 languages. Snow Leopard users: please read about the known bugs at the
bottom of this email.

The Tor Browser Bundle lets you use Tor without needing to install any
software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web
browser and is self-contained.

You can download it from the Tor Browser page which also has instructions about
how to extract and use it. https://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/

The bundle comes with the following software:

* Tor
* Vidalia 0.2.10 -- cross-platform controller GUI for the Tor software
* Polipo -- caching web proxy
* Firefox/Namoroka 3.6.9 -- web browser
* Torbutton 1.2.5 -- Firefox extension to enable or disable the browser's use of Tor
* NoScript -- Firefox extension to only allow scripts from trusted sites
* HTTPS-Everywhere 0.2.2 -- Firefox extension to provide encryption to a major number of websites

This is a beta version which has primarily been tested on an i386 Leopard machine.

Early testers on Snow Leopard report that Firefox does not launch the first
time they launch the Tor Browser Bundle app. The workaround for this is
currently to stop Tor with Vidalia and then restart it. They also say that the
Torbutton status bar on the bottom of the Firefox window does not show up, but
Torbutton functions properly. Please give us feedback and file bugs.
