Changes in version 0.2.7.5 - 2015-11-20
The Tor 0.2.7 release series is dedicated to the memory of Tor user
and privacy advocate Caspar Bowden (1961-2015). Caspar worked
tirelessly to advocate human rights regardless of national borders,
and oppose the encroachments of mass surveillance. He opposed national
exceptionalism, he brought clarity to legal and policy debates, he
understood and predicted the impact of mass surveillance on the world,
and he laid the groundwork for resisting it. While serving on the Tor
Project's board of directors, he brought us his uncompromising focus
on technical excellence in the service of humankind. Caspar was an
inimitable force for good and a wonderful friend. He was kind,
humorous, generous, gallant, and believed we should protect one
another without exception. We honor him here for his ideals, his
efforts, and his accomplishments. Please honor his memory with works
that would make him proud.
Tor 0.2.7.5 is the first stable release in the Tor 0.2.7 series.
The 0.2.7 series adds a more secure identity key type for relays,
improves cryptography performance, resolves several longstanding
hidden-service performance issues, improves controller support for
hidden services, and includes small bugfixes and performance
improvements throughout the program. This release series also includes
more tests than before, and significant simplifications to which parts
of Tor invoke which others.
(This release contains no code changes since 0.2.7.4-rc.)
