There's a new alpha release available for download. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.3.5.1-alpha from the usual place on the website. Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release some time this week.
Remember, this is an alpha release: you should only run this if you'd like to find and report more bugs than usual.
Tor 0.3.5.1-alpha is the first release of the 0.3.5.x series. It adds client authorization for modern (v3) onion services, improves bootstrap reporting, begins reorganizing Tor's codebase, adds optional support for NSS in place of OpenSSL, and much more.
Changes in version 0.3.5.1-alpha - 2018-09-18
- Major features (onion services, UI change):
- For a newly created onion service, the default version is now 3. Tor still supports existing version 2 services, but the operator now needs to set "HiddenServiceVersion 2" in order to create a new version 2 service. For existing services, Tor now learns the version by reading the key file. Closes ticket 27215.
- Major features (relay, UI change):
- Relays no longer run as exits by default. If the "ExitRelay" option is auto (or unset), and no exit policy is specified with ExitPolicy or ReducedExitPolicy, we now treat ExitRelay as 0. Previously in this case, we allowed exit traffic and logged a warning message. Closes ticket 21530. Patch by Neel Chauhan.
- Tor now validates that the ContactInfo config option is valid UTF- 8 when parsing torrc. Closes ticket 27428.
Tor Browser 8.5a1 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our
