Vidalia 0.2.2 Released

by phobos | August 15, 2009

Vidalia 0.2.2 is released. It addresses an issue with openssl which causes the geoip lookups to fail on various versions of Windows. It also switches from the Nullsoft Installer to the Microsoft System Installer for better compatibility with Microsoft Windows.

There are now separate Apple OS X builds, one for PowerPC architectures and one for i386 architectures. No more Universal binary bloat to download.

The changes are:

  • When the user clicks "Browse" in the Advanced settings page to locate
    a new torrc, set the initial directory shown in the file dialog to the
    current location of the user's torrc. (Ticket #505)
  • Use 'ditto' to strip the architectures we don't want from the Qt
    frameworks installed into the app bundle with the dist-osx,
    dist-osx-bundle and dist-osx-split-bundle build targets.
  • Fix a bug in the CMakeLists.txt files for ts2po and po2ts that caused
    build errors on Panther for those two tools.
  • Include rebuilt OpenSSL libraries in the Windows packages that are
    built with the static (/MT) version of the Microsoft Visual C++
    Runtime. Otherwise, we would require users to install the MSVC
    Redistributable, which doesn't work for portable installations such as
    the Tor Browser Bundle.
  • Remove the NSIS file for the Vidalia installer since we now ship
    MSI-based installers on Windows.

I believe there is an spelling error, unless our beloved software have changed name.

Vidalia needs to be updated as a Universal Binary. It's running on PPC, and all Macs are Intel these days
