Changes in version 0.4.6.2-alpha - 2021-04-15
BLURB HERE
o Minor features (client):
- Clients now check whether their streams are attempting to re-enter
the Tor network (i.e. to send Tor traffic over Tor), and they
close them preemptively if they think exit relays will refuse
them. See ticket 2667 for details. Close ticket 40271.
o Minor features (command line):
- Add long format name --torrc-file for command line option -f.
Closes ticket 40324. Patch by Daniel Pinto.
o Minor features (dormant mode):
- Add a new 'DormantTimeoutEnabled' option to allow coarse-grained
control over whether the client ever becomes dormant from
inactivity. Most people won't need this. Closes ticket 40228.
o Minor features (fallback directory):
- Renegerate the list to a new set of 200 relays acting as fallback
directories. Closes ticket 40265.
o Minor features (geoip data):
- Update the geoip files to match the IPFire Location Database, as
retrieved on 2021/04/13.
o Minor features (logging):
- Edit heartbeat log messages so that more of them begin with the
string "Heartbeat: ". Closes ticket 40322; patch
from 'cypherpunks'.
o Minor bugfixes (bridge, pluggable transport):
- Fix a regression that prevented to configure a Bridge line without
a fingerprint (which is a normal use case). Fixes bug 40360;
bugfix on 0.4.5.4-rc.
o Minor bugfixes (channel, DoS):
- Fix a possible non fatal assertion BUG() due to a too early free
of a string when noting down the client connection for the DoS
defenses subsystem. Fixes bug 40345; bugfix on 0.4.3.4-rc
o Minor bugfixes (compilation):
- Fix a compilation warning about unused functions when building
with a libc that lacks the GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC constant. Fixes bug
40354; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha. Patch by Daniel Pinto.
o Minor bugfixes (configuration):
- Fix globbing directories on all platforms when using %include
options in configuration files. This patch also fixes compilation
on musl libc based systems. Fixes bug 40141; bugfix
on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (relay):
- Move the "overload-general" line from extrainfo to the server
descriptor. Fixes bug 40364; bugfix on 0.4.6.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, BSD):
- Fix glob processing errors when globs expand to invalid paths on
BSD systems. Fixes bug 40318; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha. Patch by
Daniel Pinto.
o Documentation (manual):
- Move the ServerTransport* options to the SERVER OPTIONS` section.
Closes issue 40331.
- The HiddenServiceStatistics option also applies to bridges so
properly indicate that in the tor.1 man page. Closes ticket 40346.
- Move the description of "BridgeRecordUsageByCountry" to the
section "STATISTICS OPTIONS". Closes ticket 40323.
