Tor is released: back to unstable development!

by nickm | January 25, 2018

Hi!  There's a new alpha release available for download.  If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for from the usual place on the website.  Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release some time in February.

Remember, this is an alpha release: you should only run this if you'd like to find and report more bugs than usual.

Tor is the first release in the 0.3.3.x series. It adds several new features to Tor, including several improvements to bootstrapping, and support for an experimental "vanguards" feature to resist guard discovery attacks. This series also includes better support for applications that need to embed Tor or manage v3 onion services.

After months of hard work, there's a new stable Tor release series available!  If you build Tor from source, you can now download the source code for Tor from the usual place on the website. Packages should become available over the coming days, including (we hope) a Tor Browser release before the end of the month.

Tor is the first stable release in the 0.3.2 series.

Tor is released!

by nickm | December 14, 2017

Tor fixes various bugs in earlier versions of Tor, including some that could affect reliability or correctness.

This is the first release candidate in the 0.3.2 series. If we find no new bugs or regression here, then the first stable 0.3.2. release will be nearly identical to this.

You can download the source from the usual place on the website. Binary packages should be available soon, with a Tor Browser alpha release likely some time next week.

Changes in version - 2017-12-14

  • Major bugfixes (circuit prediction):
    • Fix circuit prediction logic so that a client doesn't treat a port as being "handled" by a circuit if that circuit already has isolation settings on it. This change should make Tor clients more responsive by improving their chances of having a pre-created circuit ready for use when a request arrives. Fixes bug 18859; bugfix on
  • Minor features (logging):
    • Provide better warnings when the getrandom() syscall fails. Closes ticket 24500.
