New Release: Tor 0.3.4.6-rc

by nickm | August 8, 2018

There's a new alpha release available for download. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for Tor 0.3.4.6-rc from the download page on the website. Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release by some time next month.

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

Tor 0.3.4.6-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 0.3.4.6-rc - 2018-08-06

  • Major bugfixes (event scheduler):
    • When we enable a periodic event, schedule it in the event loop rather than running it immediately. Previously, we would re-run periodic events immediately in the middle of (for example) changing our options, with unpredictable effects. Fixes bug 27003; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
  • 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.
