New Tor Browser Bundles for Linux
The Tor Browser Bundles for Linux have all been updated to really include the latest Firefox, 10.0.2.
Tor Browser Bundle for Linux (2.2.35-7.2)
- Really update Firefox to 10.0.2
- Update libpng to 1.5.9
Please note that this time around, I made and signed the bundles as Erinn is travelling. I hope all the previous issues have been fixed, and would like to apologize for taking so long to get updated Linux bundles out. Please report any issues you find on our bugtracker.
You can find my gpg key's fingerprint on the signing keys page.
I don't know how the error occurred, probably something went wrong during the build process. I am not too familiar with the normal release process, as I'm not involved in it - I just made these bundles as the regular build engineer was unavailable. I believe the faulty bundle went through functionality testing, which it did pass fine - the wrong Firefox version just went unnoticed.
As for this bundle, it was tested by myself and a couple others before becoming the new release. Note that there is a big tradeoff here, where we need to get the bundles out asap due to the security nature of the issues patched and the potential for exploits in the wild. This explains why testing can't be as rigorous as you'd probably like.
It's okay of we'd waited for quite some time. The important thing now is that we can already access the Tor Browser Bundles for Linux. Really excited to try it!
