o Major bugfixes:
- Send circuit or stream sendme cells when our window has decreased
by 100 cells, not when it has decreased by 101 cells. Bug uncovered
by Karsten when testing the "reduce circuit window" performance
patch. Bugfix on the 54th commit on Tor -- from July 2002,
before the release of Tor 0.0.0. This is the new winner of the
oldest-bug prize.
o New options for gathering stats safely:
- Directories that set "DirReqStatistics 1" write statistics on

source files Tor was built with.
- The "torify" script now uses torsocks where available.
- The memarea code now uses a sentinel value at the end of each area
to make sure nothing writes beyond the end of an area. This might

help debug some conceivable causes of bug 930.
- Time and memory units in the configuration file can now be set to
fractional units. For example, "2.5 MB" is now a valid value for
fractional units. For example, "2.5 GB" is now a valid value for
AccountingMax.
- Certain Tor clients (such as those behind check.torproject.org) may
want to fetch the consensus in an extra early manner. To enable this

notice the failure so we don't retry indefinitely. Bugfix on
0.2.0.x; reported by "rotator".
- If the cached cert file is unparseable, warn but don't exit.
- Fix possible segmentation fault on directory authorities. Bugfix on
0.2.1.14-rc.
o Deprecated and removed features:
- The controller no longer accepts the old obsolete "addr-mappings/"
or "unregistered-servers-" GETINFO values.
- Hidden services no longer publish version 0 descriptors, and clients
do not request or use version 0 descriptors. However, the authorities
still accept and serve version 0 descriptors when contacted by older
hidden services/clients.

- The EXTENDED_EVENTS and VERBOSE_NAMES controller features are now
always on; using them is necessary for correct forward-compatible
controllers.
- Removal of support for .noconnect style addresses.
- Remove support for .noconnect style addresses. Nobody was using
them, and they provided another avenue for detecting Tor users
via application-level web tricks.
