New Release Candidate: Tor 0.4.2.4-rc nickm November 15, 2019

There's a new release candidate available for download. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.4.2.4-rc from the download page on the website. Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release likely by December 3.

Remember, this is a release candidate: there may still be more bugs here than usual. We'd love to know about any new ones, so that we can try to get them fixed before we call this series stable.

Tor 0.4.2.4-rc is the first release candidate in its series. It fixes several bugs from earlier versions, including a few that would result in stack traces or incorrect behavior.
