Arti 1.1.11 is released: More onion progress

by nickm | December 4, 2023

Arti is our ongoing project to create a next-generation Tor client in Rust. Now we're announcing the latest release, Arti 1.1.11.

Arti 1.1.11 continues work on support for onion services in Arti, and we're even closer than we were last month. We think that the odds are good that our next release will be the one in which they're finally ready for testing by others. You can find a list of what we still need to do on the bugtracker.

This release also makes some changes affecting compatibility. Notably: we now require Rust 1.70 or later (in accordance with our MSRV policy). Also, we have upgraded the versions of the dalek-cryptography crates. Since these crates' types appear in our public APIs, this represents a breaking change in arti-client and most lower-level crates.

For full details on what we've done, and for information about many smaller and less visible changes as well, please see the CHANGELOG.

As a heads-up: the Arti team is going to be on break around the start of the new year, so our start-of-January release will likely be a week or so after the actual start of the month.

For more information on using Arti, see our top-level README, and the documentation for the arti binary.

Thanks to everybody who's contributed to this release, including Alexander Færøy, Andrew, Jim Newsome, rdbo, Saksham Mittal, and Trinity Pointard.

Also, our deep thanks to Zcash Community Grants and our other sponsors for funding the development of Arti!
