Forward-port changelog and releasenotes for 0.3.2.9

parent 43937b9d
Changes in version 0.3.2.9 - 2018-01-09
Tor 0.3.2.9 is the first stable release in the 0.3.2 series.
The 0.3.2 series includes our long-anticipated new onion service
design, with numerous security features. (For more information, see
our blog post at https://blog.torproject.org/fall-harvest.) We also
have a new circuit scheduler algorithm for improved performance on
relays everywhere (see https://blog.torproject.org/kist-and-tell),
along with many smaller features and bugfixes.
Per our stable release policy, we plan to support each stable release
series for at least the next nine months, or for three months after
the first stable release of the next series: whichever is longer. If
you need a release with long-term support, we recommend that you stay
with the 0.2.9 series.
Below is a list of the changes since 0.3.2.8-rc. For a list of all
changes since 0.3.1, see the ReleaseNotes file.
o Minor features (fallback directory mirrors):
- The fallback directory list has been re-generated based on the
current status of the network. Tor uses fallback directories to
bootstrap when it doesn't yet have up-to-date directory
information. Closes ticket 24801.
- Make the default DirAuthorityFallbackRate 0.1, so that clients
prefer to bootstrap from fallback directory mirrors. This is a
follow-up to 24679, which removed weights from the default
fallbacks. Implements ticket 24681.
o Minor features (geoip):
- Update geoip and geoip6 to the January 5 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2
Country database.
o Minor bugfixes (address selection):
- When the fascist_firewall_choose_address_ functions don't find a
reachable address, set the returned address to the null address
and port. This is a precautionary measure, because some callers do
not check the return value. Fixes bug 24736; bugfix
on 0.2.8.2-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation):
- Resolve a few shadowed-variable warnings in the onion service
code. Fixes bug 24634; bugfix on 0.3.2.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (portability, msvc):
- Fix a bug in the bit-counting parts of our timing-wheel code on
MSVC. (Note that MSVC is still not a supported build platform, due
to cyptographic timing channel risks.) Fixes bug 24633; bugfix
on 0.2.9.1-alpha.
Changes in version 0.3.2.8-rc - 2017-12-21
Tor 0.3.2.8-rc fixes a pair of bugs in the KIST and KISTLite
schedulers that had led servers under heavy load to overload their
