The new banner on about:tor, "Tor is ending support...," links to Learn More, but that page doesn't say anything about v2 or v3. The page does however give a v2 address, and only a v2 address, as a proper example of an onion service under the question, " I've heard about websites that are only accessible over Tor."

Please note the second part of that comment concerned that Support lists "only a v2 address". The GitLab issue in your reply does not mention it. Here are some support pages that mention "only a v2 address":

Regarding the deprecation of v2 onions, has there been any news from DuckDuckGo about upgrading their service to v3?

I have not sighted any news about this.

P.S. Why is the DuckDuckGo search not set to Onion by default? Is it due to their use of v2?

EFF (Full): A new ruleset bundle has been released, but it is older than the extension-bundled rulesets it replaces.  Skipping.

Yes, that's because they don't update rulesets on their update channel. They stopped to accept new rulesets, but that doesn't mean the end of maintaining the existing ones. So, at least, a June update should exist.

Hi, I'm from Iran, I cannot connect to Tor (with or without bridge) since yesterday even if I am using a proxy that changes my IP

There is a sharp increase in bridge users from Iran using obfs4 that started at the end of the month 2021-05 (May). The increase is nominal when compared to bridge users from all countries in the same time period.

Try changing your bridge. Try a different obfs4 bridge, or try a meek bridge. If you use a proxy or VPN in the chain before Tor, there could be an issue in that proxy. You could also try a bridge that uses a port that is usually open such as 443. If none of those help you, I guess it could be an issue in your ISP or country. Here's some more information about connecting from Iran.

Please supply more information if you find any. Read how to contribute to the Tor metrics timeline.

DuckDuckGo founder and CEO: “We're delighted that EFF has now entrusted DuckDuckGo to power HTTPS Everywhere going forward, using our next generation Smarter Encryption dataset."
Where are the statements from the Tor Project? Have you silently entrusted DuckDuckGo too?
