Tor 0.3.4.4-rc is released!

Hi!  There's a new release candidate available for download.  If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.3.4.4-rc from the usual place on the website.  Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release likely some time in MulyJuly.

Remember, this is a release candidate: you should only run this if you'd like to find and report more bugs than usual.

 

Tor 0.3.4.4-rc fixes several small compilation, portability, and correctness issues in previous versions of Tor. This version is a release candidate: if no serious bugs are found, we expect that the stable 0.3.4 release will be (almost) the same as this release.

Changes in version 0.3.4.4-rc - 2018-07-09

  • Minor features (compilation):
    • When building Tor, prefer to use Python 3 over Python 2, and more recent (contemplated) versions over older ones. Closes ticket 26372.
  • Minor features (geoip):
    • Update geoip and geoip6 to the July 3 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2 Country database. Closes ticket 26674.

 

  • Minor features (Rust, portability):
    • Rust cross-compilation is now supported. Closes ticket 25895.
  • Minor bugfixes (compilation):
    • Fix a compilation warning on some versions of GCC when building code that calls routerinfo_get_my_routerinfo() twice, assuming that the second call will succeed if the first one did. Fixes bug 26269; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
  • Minor bugfixes (control port):
    • Report the port correctly when a port is configured to bind to "auto". Fixes bug 26568; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
    • Handle the HSADDRESS= argument to the HSPOST command properly. (Previously, this argument was misparsed and thus ignored.) Fixes bug 26523; bugfix on 0.3.3.1-alpha. Patch by "akwizgran".
  • Minor bugfixes (correctness, flow control):
    • Upon receiving a stream-level SENDME cell, verify that our window has not grown too large. Fixes bug 26214; bugfix on svn r54 (pre-0.0.1).
  • Minor bugfixes (memory, correctness):
    • Fix a number of small memory leaks identified by coverity. Fixes bug 26467; bugfix on numerous Tor versions.
  • Minor bugfixes (testing, compatibility):
    • When running the hs_ntor_ref.py test, make sure only to pass strings (rather than "bytes" objects) to the Python subprocess module. Python 3 on Windows seems to require this. Fixes bug 26535; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
    • When running the ntor_ref.py test, make sure only to pass strings (rather than "bytes" objects) to the Python subprocess module. Python 3 on Windows seems to require this. Fixes bug 26535; bugfix on 0.2.5.5-alpha.
