We Want You to Test Next-Gen Onion Services

by tommy | October 2, 2017

We’re looking for technical people to come help us test next-gen onion services. They’ve been fully merged into tor-0.3.2.1-alpha, and the latest version of Tor Browser supports them. We're still in the testing phase, though -- keep an eye on this blog for the official launch.

Tor 0.3.1.7 is now released!

by nickm | September 18, 2017

There's a new stable Tor release series available!  After months of work, you can now download the source code for Tor 0.3.1.7 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 0.3.1.7 is the first stable release in the 0.3.1 series.

Tor 0.3.1.6-rc is released!

by nickm | September 5, 2017

Hello again!

Tor 0.3.1.6-rc fixes a few small bugs and annoyances in the 0.3.1 release series, including a bug that produced weird behavior on Windows directory caches.

This is the first release candidate in the Tor 0.3.1 series. If we find no new bugs or regressions here, the first stable 0.3.1 release will be nearly identical to it. Please help find bugs! If we don't find any new critical problems, we'll be calling this release series "stable" soon.

If you build Tor from source, you can find Tor 0.3.1.6-rc at the usual place (at the Download page on our website). Otherwise, you'll probably want to wait until packages are available. There should be a new Tor Browser release later this month.

Changes in version 0.3.1.6-rc - 2017-09-05

  • Major bugfixes (windows, directory cache):
    • On Windows, do not try to delete cached consensus documents and diffs before they are unmapped from memory--Windows won't allow that. Instead, allow the consensus cache directory to grow larger, to hold files that might need to stay around longer. Fixes bug 22752; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
  • Minor features (directory authority):
    • Improve the message that authorities report to relays that present RSA/Ed25519 keypairs that conflict with previously pinned keys. Closes ticket 22348.
