Tor 0.2.4.2-alpha enables port forwarding for pluggable transports, raises the default rate limiting even more, and makes the bootstrapping log messages less noisy. https://www.torproject.org/download/download (Packages coming eventually.) Changes in version 0.2.4.2-alpha - 2012-09-10 o Major features: - Automatically forward the TCP ports of pluggable transport proxies using tor-fw-helper if PortForwarding is enabled. Implements ticket 4567. o Major bugfixes: - Raise the default BandwidthRate/BandwidthBurst values from 5MB/10MB to 1GB/1GB. The previous defaults were intended to be "basically infinite", but it turns out they're now limiting our 100mbit+ relays and bridges. Fixes bug 6605; bugfix on 0.2.0.10-alpha (the last time we raised it). o Minor features: - Detect when we're running with a version of OpenSSL other than the one we compiled with. This has occasionally given people hard-to- track-down errors. - Log fewer lines at level "notice" about our OpenSSL and Libevent versions and capabilities when everything is going right. Resolves part of ticket 6736. - Directory authorities no long accept descriptors for any version of Tor before 0.2.2.35, or for any 0.2.3 release before 0.2.3.10-alpha. These versions are insecure, unsupported, or both. Implements ticket 6789. o Minor bugfixes: - Rename the (internal-use-only) UsingTestingNetworkDefaults option to start with a triple-underscore so the controller won't touch it. Patch by Meejah. Fixes bug 3155. Bugfix on 0.2.2.23-alpha. - Avoid segfault when starting up having run with an extremely old version of Tor and parsing its state file. Fixes bug 6801; bugfix on 0.2.2.23-alpha. - Rename the (testing-use-only) _UseFilteringSSLBufferevents option so it doesn't start with _. Fixes bug 3155. Bugfix on 0.2.3.1-alpha. - Don't follow the NULL pointer if microdescriptor generation fails. (This does not appear to be triggerable, but it's best to be safe.) Found by "f. tp.". Fixes bug 6797; bugfix on 0.2.4.1-alpha. - Fix mis-declared dependencies on src/common/crypto.c and src/or/tor_main.c that could break out-of-tree builds under some circumstances. Fixes bug 6778; bugfix on 0.2.4.1-alpha. - Avoid a warning when building common_sha1.i out of tree. Fixes bug 6778; bugfix on 0.2.4.1-alpha. - Fix a harmless (in this case) build warning for implicitly converting a strlen() to an int. Bugfix on 0.2.4.1-alpha. o Removed features: - Now that all versions before 0.2.2.x are disallowed, we no longer need to work around their missing features. Thus we can remove a bunch of compatibility code. o Code refactoring: - Tweak tor-fw-helper to accept an arbitrary amount of arbitrary TCP ports to forward. In the past it only accepted two ports: the ORPort and the DirPort.
