Changes in version - 2020-01-30
This release backports several bugfixes from later release series,
including some that had affected the Linux seccomp2 sandbox or Windows
services. If you're running with one of those configurations, you'll
probably want to upgrade; otherwise, you should be fine with your
current version of 0.4.1.x.
o Major bugfixes (linux seccomp sandbox, backport from
- Correct how we use libseccomp. Particularly, stop assuming that
rules are applied in a particular order or that more rules are
processed after the first match. Neither is the case! In
libseccomp <2.4.0 this lead to some rules having no effect.
libseccomp 2.4.0 changed how rules are generated, leading to a
different ordering, which in turn led to a fatal crash during
startup. Fixes bug 29819; bugfix on Patch by
Peter Gerber.
- Fix crash when reloading logging configuration while the
experimental sandbox is enabled. Fixes bug 32841; bugfix on Patch by Peter Gerber.
o Minor bugfixes (crash, backport form
- When running Tor with an option like --verify-config or
--dump-config that does not start the event loop, avoid crashing
if we try to exit early because of an error. Fixes bug 32407;

o Minor bugfixes (windows service, backport from
- Initialize the publish/subscribe system when running as a windows
service. Fixes bug 32778; bugfix on

- Turn off Tor's Sandbox in Chutney jobs, and run those jobs on
Ubuntu Bionic. Turning off the Sandbox is a work-around, until we
fix the sandbox errors in 32722. Closes ticket 32240.
- Re-enable the Travis CI macOS Chutney build, but don't let it
prevent the Travis job from finishing. (The Travis macOS jobs are
slow, so we don't want to have it delay the whole CI process.)
Closes ticket 32629.
o Testing (continuous integration, backport from
- Use zstd in our Travis Linux builds. Closes ticket 32242.
