[tor-talk] Tor 0.2.6.5-rc is released



The second (and hopefully last?) release candidate for Tor 0.2.6 is
out as source.  If you build from source, you'll probably be pretty
happy!  If not, it should be in your favorite operating system's
testing repositories, or in a TB alpha release, some time pretty soon.

Until then, you can get the source in the usual places from the
Torproject.org website.

Here's the changelog for this release:
Changes in version 0.2.6.5-rc - 2015-03-18
  Tor 0.2.6.5-rc is the second and (hopefully) last release candidate in
  the 0.2.6. It fixes a small number of bugs found in 0.2.6.4-rc.

  o Major bugfixes (client):
    - Avoid crashing when making certain configuration option changes on
      clients. Fixes bug 15245; bugfix on 0.2.6.3-alpha. Reported
      by "anonym".

  o Major bugfixes (pluggable transports):
    - Initialize the extended OR Port authentication cookie before
      launching pluggable transports. This prevents a race condition
      that occured when server-side pluggable transports would cache the
      authentication cookie before it has been (re)generated. Fixes bug
      15240; bugfix on 0.2.5.1-alpha.

  o Major bugfixes (portability):
    - Do not crash on startup when running on Solaris. Fixes a bug
      related to our fix for 9495; bugfix on 0.2.6.1-alpha. Reported
      by "ruebezahl".

  o Minor features (heartbeat):
    - On relays, report how many connections we negotiated using each
      version of the Tor link protocols. This information will let us
      know if removing support for very old versions of the Tor
      protocols is harming the network. Closes ticket 15212.

  o Code simplification and refactoring:
    - Refactor main loop to extract the 'loop' part. This makes it
      easier to run Tor under Shadow. Closes ticket 15176.
