Vidalia 0.2.10 Released
The latest version of the graphical controller for tor, Vidalia, is now available. The main change is the use of Tor's native geoip database to map relay IP addresses to country. This removes the remote geoip resolution that occurred over Tor in previous versions of Vidalia.
Vidalia can be found at https://www.torproject.org/vidalia/.
The full changelog is:
- Drop remote GeoIP lookups. Instead, the default behavior now is to use the country-level GeoIP database that ships with Tor to map an IP address to a country code, and then map the country code to latitude and longitude with a separate database built into Vidalia.
- Add a -DUSE_GEOIP build option to enable building with MaxMind's GeoIP C library for using a local city-level or country-level database instead of Tor's database. See README.geoip for details on use.
- Only update a stream's displayed target address in the network map if no hostname was given in the stream's NEW status event. Fix suggested by Robert Hogan. (Ticket #608)
- Update the menubar icon at the same time as the dock icon on OS X. Previously, we had a blank icon in the menubar. (Ticket #610)
- Updated several translations.
Then something is wrong with your tor, not vidalia. Does your successfully connect to the rest of the network? You should see around 2000 servers on the left windows in Vidalia.
I see the servers in the list on the left hand side, but i dont see them rendered onto the map view.
Moving back to 0.2.9, they all get plotted on the map.
That's odd. If you're on linux, did you install tor-geoipdb?
Im on windows.Tor says its parsing the GeoIP db, but as I mentioned, the servers appear on the left hand side - but most of them that are in the USA don't appear in the map.
In the map view there only appears to be a couple servers in the USA. Europe shows quite a few servers and there are other dotted about. Strange,..
I think i have worked out what is happening with vidalia 0.2.10 and the map view.
The servers in the left hand pane are only showing the country that the server is in.
Previously, with Vidalia 0.2.9, the CITY was detected.
So, is it possible to integrate the CITY db into Tor, to get city detection back in place ?
