Release Notes: This release fixes some crash and assert bugs, including a socketpair-related bug which has been bothering Windows users. It adds support to serve microdescriptors to controllers, so Vidalia's network map can resume listing relays (once Vidalia implements its side) and adds better support for hardware AES acceleration. Finally, it starts the process of adjusting the bandwidth cutoff for getting the "Fast" flag from 20KB to (currently) 32KB. Preliminary results show that tiny relays harm performance more than they help network capacity.

Release Notes: This release fixes many bugs. Hidden service clients are more robust. Routers no longer over-report their bandwidth. Win7 should crash a little less. NEWNYM now prevents hidden service-related activity from being linkable. The Entry/Exit/ExcludeNodes and StrictNodes configuration options were revamped to make them more reliable, more understandable, and more regularly applied.

Release Notes: This release fixes a variety of bugs, including a big bug that prevented Tor clients from effectively using "multihomed" bridges, that is, bridges that listen on multiple ports or IP addresses so users can continue to use some of their addresses even if others get blocked.

  •  01 Mar 2011 14:39

Release Notes: This release fixes a variety of less critical bugs. The main other change is a slight tweak to Tor's TLS handshake.

  •  02 Feb 2011 14:16

Release Notes: This release fixes a few more less-critical security issues. The main other change is a slight tweak to Tor's TLS handshake that makes relays and bridges that run this new version reachable from Iran again.

  •  18 Jan 2011 03:21

Release Notes: A remote heap overflow vulnerability that could allow remote code execution was fixed along with other issues.

  •  27 Nov 2010 03:47

Release Notes: This release makes relays work with OpenSSL 0.9.8p and 1.0.0.b. It fixes several crash bugs, integrates a new directory authority, and updates the bundled GeoIP database.

  •  18 Nov 2010 11:47

Release Notes: This release fixes several crash bugs, makes unpublished bridge relays able to detect their IP address, and fixes a wide variety of other bugs.

  •  07 Oct 2010 13:25

Release Notes: This release introduces a feature to make it harder for clients to use one-hop circuits (which can put the exit relays at higher risk, plus unbalance the network). A big bug was fixed in bandwidth accounting for relays that want to limit their monthly bandwidth use. A big pile of bugs in how clients tolerate temporary network failure was fixed. The adaptive circuit build timeout feature (which improves client performance if your network is fast while not breaking things if your network is slow) now handles bad networks better.

Release Notes: This release fixes a critical bug in how directory authorities handle and vote on descriptors. It was causing relays to drop out of the consensus.
