Tor 0.3.1.6-rc fixes a few small bugs and annoyances in the 0.3.1 release series, including a bug that produced weird behavior on Windows directory caches.
This is the first release candidate in the Tor 0.3.1 series. If we find no new bugs or regressions here, the first stable 0.3.1 release will be nearly identical to it. Please help find bugs! If we don't find any new critical problems, we'll be calling this release series "stable" soon.
If you build Tor from source, you can find Tor 0.3.1.6-rc at the usual place (at the Download page on our website). Otherwise, you'll probably want to wait until packages are available. There should be a new Tor Browser release later this month.
Changes in version 0.3.1.6-rc - 2017-09-05
- Major bugfixes (windows, directory cache):
- On Windows, do not try to delete cached consensus documents and diffs before they are unmapped from memory--Windows won't allow that. Instead, allow the consensus cache directory to grow larger, to hold files that might need to stay around longer. Fixes bug 22752; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
- Minor features (directory authority):
- Improve the message that authorities report to relays that present RSA/Ed25519 keypairs that conflict with previously pinned keys. Closes ticket 22348.
