Changes in version 0.2.1.17-rc - 2009-07-02
o Major features:
- Clients now use the bandwidth values in the consensus, rather than
the bandwidth values in each relay descriptor. This approach opens
the door to more accurate bandwidth estimates once the directory
authorities start doing active measurements. Implements more of
proposal 141.
o Major bugfixes:
- When Tor clients restart after 1-5 days, they discard all their
cached descriptors as too old, but they still use the cached
consensus document. This approach is good for robustness, but
bad for performance: since they don't know any bandwidths, they
end up choosing at random rather than weighting their choice by
speed. Fixed by the above feature of putting bandwidths in the
consensus. Bugfix on 0.2.0.x.
- Directory authorities were neglecting to mark relays down in their
internal histories if the relays fall off the routerlist without
ever being found unreachable. So there were relays in the histories

o Minor bugfixes:
- Serve the DirPortFrontPage page even when we have been approaching
our quotas recently. Fixes bug 1013; bugfix on 0.2.1.8-alpha.
- Do not cap bandwidths reported by directory authorities; they are
already adjusted to reflect reality.
our quotas recently. Fixes bug 1013; bugfix on 0.2.1.8-alpha.
- The control port would close the connection before flushing long
replies, such as the network consensus, if a QUIT command was issued
before the reply had completed. Now, the control port flushes all
pending replies before closing the connection. Also fixed a spurious
warning when a QUIT command is issued after a malformed or rejected
AUTHENTICATE command, but before the connection was closed. Patch
by Marcus Griep. Bugfix on 0.2.0.x; fixes bugs 1015 and 1016.
- When we can't find an intro key for a v2 hidden service descriptor,
fall back to the v0 hidden service descriptor and log a bug message.
Workaround for bug1024.

flushes all pending replies before closing the connection.
Also fixed a condition where a QUIT command issued after a
malformed or rejected AUTHENTICATE command, but before the
connection was closed would result in a warning in the logger
for a doubly-closed connection. Fixes bugs 1015 and 1016.
o Minor features:
- If we're a relay and we change our IP address, be more verbose
about the reason that made us change. Should help track down
further bugs for relays on dynamic IP addresses.
