New Release: Tor Browser 8.5a8
This release features important security updates to Firefox.
The main change in this new release is the update of Firefox to 60.5.1esr, fixing some vulnerabilities in the Skia library.
Note: We usually make sure that the build of each Tor Browser release is reproducible by having two separate people building it before we publish a new release. However, due to some people being unavailable this week, we are having some delays doing this verification for this alpha release. Because this release includes an important security fix that we want to release quickly, we will be checking the reproducibility of the build afterward. If you are interested in reproducing our build, you can find information about that on our wiki page. Update: we have now reproduced the build.
Note 2: The download link for the Android version is still pointing to 8.5a7 as we have not yet signed the 8.5a8 build. We plan to fix this soon. Update: This is now fixed.
The full changelog since Tor Browser 8.5a7 is:
- All platforms
- Build System
Noted. No need to reiterate again.
