Changes in version 0.4.6.3-rc - 2021-05-10
Tor 0.4.6.3-rc is the first release candidate in its series. It fixes
a few small bugs from previous versions, and adds a better error
message when trying to use (no longer supported) v2 onion services.
Though we anticipate that we'll be doing a bit more clean-up between
now and the stable release, we expect that our remaining changes will
be fairly simple. There will likely be at least one more release
candidate before 0.4.6.x is stable.
o Major bugfixes (onion service, control port):
- Make the ADD_ONION command properly configure client authorization.
Before this fix, the created onion failed to add the client(s).
Fixes bug 40378; bugfix on 0.4.6.1-alpha.
o Minor features (compatibility, Linux seccomp sandbox):
- Add a workaround to enable the Linux sandbox to work correctly
with Glibc 2.33. This version of Glibc has started using the
fstatat() system call, which previously our sandbox did not allow.
Closes ticket 40382; see the ticket for a discussion of trade-offs.
o Minor features (compilation):
- Make the autoconf script build correctly with autoconf versions
2.70 and later. Closes part of ticket 40335.
o Minor features (geoip data):
- Update the geoip files to match the IPFire Location Database, as
retrieved on 2021/05/07.
o Minor features (onion services):
- Add a warning message when trying to connect to (no longer
supported) v2 onion services. Closes ticket 40373.
o Minor bugfixes (build, cross-compilation):
- Allow a custom "ar" for cross-compilation. Our previous build
script had used the $AR environment variable in most places, but
it missed one. Fixes bug 40369; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compiler warnings):
- Fix an indentation problem that led to a warning from GCC 11.1.1.
Fixes bug 40380; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (logging, relay):
- Emit a warning if an Address is found to be internal and tor can't
use it. Fixes bug 40290; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (onion service, client, memory leak):
- Fix a bug where an expired cached descriptor could get overwritten
with a new one without freeing it, leading to a memory leak. Fixes
bug 40356; bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
Changes in version 0.4.6.2-alpha - 2021-04-15
Tor 0.4.6.2-alpha is the second alpha in its series. It fixes several
small bugs in previous releases, and solves other issues that had

from the 0.4.6.x series.

retrieved on 2021/05/07.

services. As announced, Tor 0.4.5.x is the last series that will
support v2 onions. Closes ticket 40373.
o Minor bugfixes (bridge, pluggable transport, backport from 0.4.6.2-alpha):

bugfix on 0.4.5.4-rc.
o Minor bugfixes (build, cross-compilation, backport from 0.4.6.3-rc):
- Allow a custom "ar" for cross-compilation. Our previous build
