Changes in version 0.4.5.8 - 2021-05-10
Tor 0.4.5.8 fixes several bugs in earlier version, backporting fixes
from the 0.4.6.x series.
o Minor features (compilation, backport from 0.4.6.3-rc):
- Make the autoconf script build correctly with autoconf versions
2.70 and later. Closes part of ticket 40335.
o Minor features (fallback directory list, backport from 0.4.6.2-alpha):
- Regenerate the list of fallback directories to contain a new set
of 200 relays. Closes ticket 40265.
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 warning message when connecting to now deprecated v2 onion
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):
- Fix a regression that made it impossible start Tor using a bridge
line with a transport name and no fingerprint. Fixes bug 40360;
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
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 (channel, DoS, backport from 0.4.6.2-alpha):
- Fix a non-fatal BUG() message due to a too-early free of a string,
when listing a client connection from the DoS defenses subsystem.
Fixes bug 40345; bugfix on 0.4.3.4-rc.
o Minor bugfixes (controller, backport from 0.4.6.1-alpha):
- Fix a "BUG" warning that would appear when a controller chooses
the first hop for a circuit, and that circuit completes. Fixes bug
40285; bugfix on 0.3.2.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (onion service, client, memory leak, backport from 0.4.6.3-rc):
- 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.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, BSD, backport from 0.4.6.2-alpha):
- Fix pattern-matching errors when patterns expand to invalid paths
on BSD systems. Fixes bug 40318; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha. Patch by
Daniel Pinto.
