New Release: Tor 0.3.3.9 (Bridge Authority Update)

 

Tor 0.3.3.9 moves to a new bridge authority. The only people who need to upgrade are people who operate a bridge relay — so their bridge address can resume being given out to censored users, and so their stats can resume being included in the metrics pages.

Changes in version 0.3.3.9 - 2018-07-13

  • Directory authority changes:
    • The "Bifroest" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge authority is "Serge", and it is operated by George from the Tor BSD Diversity project. Closes ticket 26771.

We also put out new oldstable releases for 0.2.9.16 and 0.3.2.11, and those releases include other backported fixes:

https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/tree/ReleaseNotes?h=tor-0.3.2.11

If for whatever reason you can't upgrade yet, you can also manually switch to advertising your bridge descriptor to the new bridge authority by using this torrc line:

AlternateBridgeAuthority Serge orport=9001 bridge 66.111.2.131:9030 BA44 A889 E64B 93FA A2B1 14E0 2C2A 279A 8555 C533
