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.
Changes in version 0.3.4.5-rc - 2018-07-13
Tor 0.3.4.5-rc moves to a new bridge authority, meaning people running
bridge relays should upgrade.
 
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 Directory authority changes:
- The "Bifroest" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge
authority is "Serge", and it is operated by George from the
TorBSD project. Closes ticket 26771.
 
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.
Changes in version 0.3.3.9 - 2018-07-13
Tor 0.3.3.9 moves to a new bridge authority, meaning people running
bridge relays should upgrade.
o Directory authority changes:
- The "Bifroest" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge
authority is "Serge", and it is operated by George from the
TorBSD project. Closes ticket 26771.
Changes in version 0.3.2.11 - 2018-07-13
Tor 0.3.2.11 moves to a new bridge authority, meaning people running
bridge relays should upgrade. We also take this opportunity to backport
other minor fixes.
o Directory authority changes:
- The "Bifroest" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge
authority is "Serge", and it is operated by George from the
TorBSD project. Closes ticket 26771.
o Directory authority changes (backport from 0.3.3.7):
- Add an IPv6 address for the "dannenberg" directory authority.
Closes ticket 26343.
o Major bugfixes (directory authorities, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- When directory authorities read a zero-byte bandwidth file, they
would previously log a warning with the contents of an
uninitialised buffer. They now log a warning about the empty file
instead. Fixes bug 26007; bugfix on 0.2.2.1-alpha.
o Major bugfixes (onion service, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Correctly detect when onion services get disabled after HUP. Fixes
bug 25761; bugfix on 0.3.2.1.
o Minor features (sandbox, backport from 0.3.3.4-alpha):
- Explicitly permit the poll() system call when the Linux
seccomp2-based sandbox is enabled: apparently, some versions of
libc use poll() when calling getpwnam(). Closes ticket 25313.
o Minor feature (continuous integration, backport from 0.3.3.5-rc):
- Update the Travis CI configuration to use the stable Rust channel,
now that we have decided to require that. Closes ticket 25714.
o Minor features (continuous integration, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Our .travis.yml configuration now includes support for testing the
results of "make distcheck". (It's not uncommon for "make check"
to pass but "make distcheck" to fail.) Closes ticket 25814.
- Our Travis CI configuration now integrates with the Coveralls
coverage analysis tool. Closes ticket 25818.

- Add several checks to detect whether Tor relays are uploading
their descriptors without specifying why they regenerated them.
Diagnostic for ticket 25686.

cell immediately. Previously we would mark the connection for
close, but continue processing the cell as if the connection were
open. Fixes bug 26072; bugfix on 0.2.4.7-alpha.
 
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.

- Allow the nanosleep() system call, which glibc uses to implement
sleep() and usleep(). Fixes bug 24969; bugfix on 0.2.5.1-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 (relay, crash, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):

Fixes bug 26069; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
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 (relay, crash, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Avoid a crash when running with DirPort set but ORPort turned off.
Fixes a case of bug 23693; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation, backport from 0.3.4.2-alpha):
- Silence unused-const-variable warnings in zstd.h with some GCC
versions. Fixes bug 26272; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, backport from 0.3.3.4-alpha):
- Avoid intermittent test failures due to a test that had relied on
onion service introduction point creation finishing within 5
seconds of real clock time. Fixes bug 25450; bugfix
on 0.3.1.3-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation, backport from 0.3.3.4-alpha):
- Fix a C99 compliance issue in our configuration script that caused
compilation issues when compiling Tor with certain versions of
xtools. Fixes bug 25474; bugfix on 0.3.2.5-alpha.
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 Code simplification and refactoring (backport from 0.3.3.5-rc):
- Move the list of default directory authorities to its own file.
Closes ticket 24854. Patch by "beastr0".
Changes in version 0.2.9.16 - 2018-07-13
Tor 0.2.9.16 moves to a new bridge authority, meaning people running
bridge relays should upgrade. We also take this opportunity to backport
other minor fixes.
o Directory authority changes:
- The "Bifroest" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge
authority is "Serge", and it is operated by George from the
TorBSD project. Closes ticket 26771.
o Directory authority changes (backport from 0.3.3.7):
- Add an IPv6 address for the "dannenberg" directory authority.
Closes ticket 26343.
o Major bugfixes (directory authorities, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- When directory authorities read a zero-byte bandwidth file, they
would previously log a warning with the contents of an
uninitialised buffer. They now log a warning about the empty file
instead. Fixes bug 26007; bugfix on 0.2.2.1-alpha.
o Minor features (sandbox, backport from 0.3.3.4-alpha):
- Explicitly permit the poll() system call when the Linux
seccomp2-based sandbox is enabled: apparently, some versions of
libc use poll() when calling getpwnam(). Closes ticket 25313.
o Minor features (continuous integration, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Our .travis.yml configuration now includes support for testing the
results of "make distcheck". (It's not uncommon for "make check"
to pass but "make distcheck" to fail.) Closes ticket 25814.
- Our Travis CI configuration now integrates with the Coveralls
coverage analysis tool. Closes ticket 25818.
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 bugfixes (correctness, client, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Upon receiving a malformed connected cell, stop processing the
cell immediately. Previously we would mark the connection for
close, but continue processing the cell as if the connection were
open. Fixes bug 26072; bugfix on 0.2.4.7-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (Linux seccomp2 sandbox, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Allow the nanosleep() system call, which glibc uses to implement
sleep() and usleep(). Fixes bug 24969; bugfix on 0.2.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (testing, compatibility, backport from 0.3.4.4-rc):
- 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.
o Minor bugfixes (compatibility, openssl, backport from 0.3.4.2-alpha):
- Work around a change in OpenSSL 1.1.1 where return values that
would previously indicate "no password" now indicate an empty
password. Without this workaround, Tor instances running with
OpenSSL 1.1.1 would accept descriptors that other Tor instances
would reject. Fixes bug 26116; bugfix on 0.2.5.16.
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 (client, backport from 0.3.4.1-alpha):
- Don't consider Tor running as a client if the ControlPort is open,
but no actual client ports are open. Fixes bug 26062; bugfix
on 0.2.9.4-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (hardening, backport from 0.3.4.2-alpha):
- Prevent a possible out-of-bounds smartlist read in
protover_compute_vote(). Fixes bug 26196; bugfix on 0.2.9.4-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (C correctness, backport from 0.3.3.4-alpha):
- Fix a very unlikely (impossible, we believe) null pointer
dereference. Fixes bug 25629; bugfix on 0.2.9.15. Found by
Coverity; this is CID 1430932.
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 Code simplification and refactoring (backport from 0.3.3.5-rc):
- Move the list of default directory authorities to its own file.
Closes ticket 24854. Patch by "beastr0".
