New Tor Cloud images

The Tor Cloud images for all the seven regions have been updated to include the latest cloud image for stable Ubuntu release 12.04.1 LTS (Precise Pangolin). These new images are available on the Tor Cloud website.

The new images include Tor's new GPG key, uses apt-get instead of aptitude, and also includes the deb.torproject.org-keyring package (#6776).

If you are already running a Tor Cloud bridge, you will need to either manually update your image, or set up a new Tor Cloud bridge and terminate the old one. If you decide not to take action, your image will fail to upgrade Tor correctly and will not be running as a bridge. To manually update your image; log on with SSH, and follow the instructions to add the new GPG key, upgrade Tor, and install the deb.torproject.org-keyring package.

for those of us running Tor cloud on the free tier, if we create a new instance does that result in us getting billed at full whack?

You should not get billed for a new instance if you terminate the old one (i.e. you're only running one instance in total).

Hello Dear Tor's Developers!

In Russia rigid dictatorship.
All activists, that oppose dictatorship caught in the prisons, or just kill them.

Now the government of the dictator (criminal-friends of dictator) want introduced black lists for sites, filters. Lists of sites, that will be blocked.
This law has already been passed.

But they are not going to stop there.
They want to put a complete censorship and control of the Internet.
Now they want to ban proxies and Tor.

Please solve this problem.

The Getting Started page seems to be missing the AWS region links I used to setup my original instance. Can we get those fixed? I'm not sure how to find the proper AMI outside of that link.
