Stem Release 1.3
Greetings wonderful people of the world! After months down in the engine room I'm delighted to announce the 1.3.0 release of Stem.
For those who aren't familiar with it, Stem is a Python library for interacting with Tor. With it you can script against your relay, descriptor data, or even write applications similar to arm and Vidalia.
So what's new in this release?
Better Hidden Service Support
Now it's easier than ever to spin up hidden services!
Thanks to contributions from Federico Ceratto and Patrick O'Doherty we now have a set of methods specifically for working with hidden services. Check it out in our new tutorial...
Faster Descriptor Parsing
This release dramatically improves the speed at which Stem can parse decriptors. Thanks to optimizations from Nick Mathewson and Ossi Herrala we can now read descriptors 40% faster!
This is just the tip of the iceberg. For a full rundown on the myriad of improvements and fixes in this release see...
I looked at it very very briefly. My guess is that there's a good chance it bypasses Tor and uploads everything that you visit to a bunch of different antivirus companies. If that's true, it sounds like a terrible idea to use.
wow! I have more than 10 add-ons on my TOR, some for comfort, some for security! I don't know how many of them -as you told now- are bypassing my TOR and reducing my security! add-ons like "down them all", "flash-got", "download manager(s3)", "aniweather", "ad block plus", "scrapbook", "screenshoter","quick translator", ... .
anyway, thanks a lot again TOR guys
