We have a new stable release today. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.3.3.8 on the website. Packages should be available within the next several weeks, with a new stable Tor Browser by some time in September. (Don't worry, this isn't an urgent release for clients.)
Tor 0.3.3.8 backports several changes from the 0.3.4.x series, including fixes for a memory leak affecting directory authorities.
Changes in version 0.3.3.8 - 2018-07-09
- Major bugfixes (directory authority, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Stop leaking memory on directory authorities when planning to vote. This bug was crashing authorities by exhausting their memory. Fixes bug 26435; bugfix on 0.3.3.6.
- Major bugfixes (rust, testing, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Make sure that failing tests in Rust will actually cause the build to fail: previously, they were ignored. Fixes bug 26258; bugfix on 0.3.3.4-alpha.
Hi! There's a new release candidate available for download. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.3.4.4-rc from the usual place on the website. Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release likely some time in Muly.
Remember, this is a release candidate: you should only run this if you'd like to find and report more bugs than usual.
Tor 0.3.4.4-rc fixes several small compilation, portability, and correctness issues in previous versions of Tor. This version is a release candidate: if no serious bugs are found, we expect that the stable 0.3.4 release will be (almost) the same as this release.
Changes in version 0.3.4.4-rc - 2018-07-09
- Minor features (compilation):
- When building Tor, prefer to use Python 3 over Python 2, and more recent (contemplated) versions over older ones. Closes ticket 26372.
- Minor features (geoip):
- Update geoip and geoip6 to the July 3 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2 Country database. Closes ticket 26674.
