New Release: Tor Browser 9.0a2
Note: this is an alpha release, an experimental version for users who want to help us test new features. For everyone else, we recommend downloading the latest stable release instead.
This release is fixing regressions and providing small improvements similarly to our 8.5.1 release. Additionally, we update Tor to 0.4.1.2-alpha, OpenSSL to 1.1.1c, we disable the WebGL readPixel() fingerprinting vector, add the
ro locale, and start updating our toolchains in prevision to the planned migration to Firefox 68 ESR.

- All platforms
- Update Torbutton to 2.2

Why is there two versions on F-droid? Which one should users use? And why is the Play Store seemingly getting more updates?
There is an alpha and a stable version. If you want to help us find bugs in new features use the alpha one and the stable otherwise. The Play Store is getting updates faster as this is a process controlled directly by us. For F-Droid we still need to ask the Guardian Project folks to upload new versions for us which is a manual process and costs time. But we work on fixing that: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/27539
Thank you for the response and explaination.
