New Release: Tor 0.3.4.9 nickm November 02, 2018

We have a new stable release today. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for Tor 0.3.4.9 from the download page on the website. Packages should be available within the next several weeks, with a new Tor Browser by mid-December.

Tor 0.3.4.9 is the second stable release in its series; it backports numerous fixes, including a fix for a bandwidth management bug that was causing memory exhaustion on relays. Anyone running an earlier version of Tor 0.3.4.9 should upgrade.

Changes in version 0.3.4.9 - 2018-11-02

  • Major bugfixes (compilation, backport from 0.3.5.3-alpha):
    • Fix compilation on ARM (and other less-used CPUs) when compiling with OpenSSL before 1.1. Fixes bug 27781; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
  • Major bugfixes (mainloop, bootstrap, backport from 0.3.5.3-alpha):
    • Make sure Tor bootstraps and works properly if only the ControlPort is set. Prior to this fix, Tor would only bootstrap when a client port was set (Socks, Trans, NATD, DNS or HTTPTunnel port). Fixes bug 27849; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
