Changes in version 0.3.3.8 - 2018-07-09
Tor 0.3.3.8 backports several changes from the 0.3.4.x series, including
fixes for a memory leak affecting directory authorities.
o Major bugfixes (directory authority, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Stop leaking memory on directory authorities when planning to
vote. This bug was crashing authorities by exhausting their
memory. Fixes bug 26435; bugfix on 0.3.3.6.
o Major bugfixes (rust, testing, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Make sure that failing tests in Rust will actually cause the build
to fail: previously, they were ignored. Fixes bug 26258; bugfix
on 0.3.3.4-alpha.
o Minor features (compilation, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- When building Tor, prefer to use Python 3 over Python 2, and more
recent (contemplated) versions over older ones. Closes
ticket 26372.
o Minor features (geoip):
- Update geoip and geoip6 to the July 3 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2
Country database. Closes ticket 26674.
o Minor features (relay, diagnostic, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Add several checks to detect whether Tor relays are uploading
their descriptors without specifying why they regenerated them.
Diagnostic for ticket 25686.
o Minor bugfixes (circuit path selection, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Don't count path selection failures as circuit build failures.
This change should eliminate cases where Tor blames its guard or
the network for situations like insufficient microdescriptors
and/or overly restrictive torrc settings. Fixes bug 25705; bugfix
on 0.3.3.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- Fix a compilation warning on some versions of GCC when building
code that calls routerinfo_get_my_routerinfo() twice, assuming
that the second call will succeed if the first one did. Fixes bug
26269; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (control port, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- Handle the HSADDRESS= argument to the HSPOST command properly.
(Previously, this argument was misparsed and thus ignored.) Fixes
bug 26523; bugfix on 0.3.3.1-alpha. Patch by "akwizgran".
o Minor bugfixes (memory, correctness, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- Fix a number of small memory leaks identified by coverity. Fixes
bug 26467; bugfix on numerous Tor versions.
o Minor bugfixes (relay, backport from 0.3.4.3-alpha):
- Relays now correctly block attempts to re-extend to the previous
relay by Ed25519 identity. Previously they would warn in this
case, but not actually reject the attempt. Fixes bug 26158; bugfix
on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (restart-in-process, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- When shutting down, Tor now clears all the flags in the control.c
module. This should prevent a bug where authentication cookies are
not generated on restart. Fixes bug 25512; bugfix on 0.3.3.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, compatibility, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- When running the hs_ntor_ref.py test, make sure only to pass
strings (rather than "bytes" objects) to the Python subprocess
module. Python 3 on Windows seems to require this. Fixes bug
26535; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
- When running the ntor_ref.py test, make sure only to pass strings
(rather than "bytes" objects) to the Python subprocess module.
Python 3 on Windows seems to require this. Fixes bug 26535; bugfix
on 0.2.5.5-alpha.
Changes in version 0.3.4.4-rc - 2018-07-09
Tor 0.3.4.4-rc fixes several small compilation, portability, and
correctness issues in previous versions of Tor. This version is a
release candidate: if no serious bugs are found, we expect that the
stable 0.3.4 release will be (almost) the same as this release.
o Minor features (compilation):
- When building Tor, prefer to use Python 3 over Python 2, and more
recent (contemplated) versions over older ones. Closes
ticket 26372.
o Minor features (geoip):
- Update geoip and geoip6 to the July 3 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2
Country database. Closes ticket 26674.
o Minor features (Rust, portability):
- Rust cross-compilation is now supported. Closes ticket 25895.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation):
- Fix a compilation warning on some versions of GCC when building
code that calls routerinfo_get_my_routerinfo() twice, assuming
that the second call will succeed if the first one did. Fixes bug
26269; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (control port):
- Report the port correctly when a port is configured to bind to
"auto". Fixes bug 26568; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
- Handle the HSADDRESS= argument to the HSPOST command properly.
(Previously, this argument was misparsed and thus ignored.) Fixes
bug 26523; bugfix on 0.3.3.1-alpha. Patch by "akwizgran".
o Minor bugfixes (correctness, flow control):
- Upon receiving a stream-level SENDME cell, verify that our window
has not grown too large. Fixes bug 26214; bugfix on svn
r54 (pre-0.0.1).
o Minor bugfixes (memory, correctness):
- Fix a number of small memory leaks identified by coverity. Fixes
bug 26467; bugfix on numerous Tor versions.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, compatibility):
- When running the hs_ntor_ref.py test, make sure only to pass

module. Python 3 on Windows seems to require this. Fixes bug
