[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
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
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
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.
