Arm Release 1.4.3
Hi all. A new release of arm is now available. This completes the codebase refactoring project that's been a year in the works and provides numerous performance, usability, and stability improvements...
- Relay Setup Wizard
Setting up a relay can be tricky for new users. In headless environments this means navigating Tor's massive, user unfriendly man page and even when Vidalia's an option it makes relatively poor exit configurations. Starting arm before Tor now provides instructions for auto-generating a good relay setup...
- Menu Interface
All of arm's capabilities are now available via a simple menu interface.
- Arm Gui Prototype
Over this summer Kamran Khan has been working on a GTK frontend for arm as part of Google Summer of Code. The initial prototype is ready!
- Performance Improvements
Several arm and TorCtl performance fixes providing a 83% faster startup time, 12% lower memory usage, and instantaneous shutdown.
- Improved Platform Support
- ... etc
Options for requesting a new identity, shutting down Tor, reconnecting if Tor's been restarted and many, many bugfixes.
