New Release: Tor Browser 8.5a7
This release features important security updates to Firefox.
This new Tor Browser version ships the first alpha in Tor's 0.4.0 series, 0.4.0.1-alpha.
This release also features a lot of improvements regarding our branding. We ship our new Tor Browser logo for the first time in a release build on desktop platforms and are eager to learn about bugs and general feedback. Thanks for Antonela and Richard working on this!
Additionally, we fixed a number of crashes noticed in previous releases (WebGL crashed on some Windows machines, the print dialog on some Linux systems, and downloading files on some Android devices).
Note: Due to a bug in Tor 0.4.0.1-alpha, the Windows bundles on a new clean install will get stuck during the first start. Restarting the browser should solve the issue.
