Changes in version 0.3.5.3-alpha - 2018-10-17
Tor 0.3.5.3-alpha fixes several bugs, mostly from previous 0.3.5.x
versions. It's still an alpha, but we hope it's getting closer and
closer to stability.
o Major bugfixes (compilation):
- Fix compilation on ARM (and other less-used CPUs)
when compiling with OpenSSL before 1.1. Fixes bug 27781;
bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
o Major bugfixes (initialization, crash):
- Fix an assertion crash that would stop Tor from starting up if
it tried to activate a periodic event too early. Fixes bug
27861; bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
o Major bugfixes (mainloop, bootstrap):
- Make sure Tor bootstraps and works properly if only the ControlPort is
set. Prior to this fix, Tor would only bootstrap when a client
port was set (Socks, Trans, NATD, DNS or HTTPTunnel port). Fixes bug
27849; bugfix on 0.3.4.1-alpha.
o Minor features (continuous integration):
- Use the Travis Homebrew addon to install packages on macOS during
Travis CI. The package
list is the same, but the Homebrew addon does not do a `brew update` by
default. Implements ticket 27738.
- Report what program produced the mysterious core file that we
occasionally see on Travis CI during make distcheck. Closes
ticket 28024.
o Minor features (geoip):
- Update geoip and geoip6 to the October 9 2018 Maxmind GeoLite2
Country database. Closes ticket 27991.
o Minor features (onion services):
- Version 3 onion services can now use the per-service
HiddenServiceExportCircuitID option to differentiate client circuits by
using the HAProxy proxy protocol which assigns IP addresses to inbound client
circuits. Closes ticket 4700. Patch by Mahrud Sayrafi.
o Minor bugfixes (continuous integration, appveyor):
- Only install the necessary mingw packages during our appveyor
builds. This change makes the build a little faster, and prevents a
conflict with a preinstalled mingw openssl that appveyor now ships.
Fixes bugs 27943 and 27765; bugfix on 0.3.4.2-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (code safety):
- Rewrite our assertion macros so that they no longer suppress
the compiler's -Wparentheses warnings on their inputs. Fixes bug 27709;
bugfix on 0.0.6.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation):
- Compile the ed25519-donna code with a correct declaration of
crypto_strongest_rand(). Previously, we build it with one type,
but link it against another in the unit tests, which caused
compilation failures with LTO enabled, and which could have
caused other undefined behavior in the tests. Fixes bug 27728;
bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (compilation, netbsd):
- Add a missing include back into procmon.c. Fixes bug 27990;
bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (directory permissions):
- When a user requests a group-readable DataDirectory, give it to
them. Previously, when the DataDirectory and the CacheDirectory
were the same, the default setting (0) for
CacheDirectoryGroupReadable would always override the setting for
DataDirectoryGroupReadable. Fixes bug 26913; bugfix on
0.3.3.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (onion service v3):
- Client side would dump a stack trace if tor doesn't have the descriptor
for the intro point it is trying to connect to. Fixes bug 27774; bugfix
on 0.3.2.1-alpha.
- Don't warn so loudly when tor is unable to decode a descriptor. This can
now happen as a normal use case if a client gets a descriptor with
client authorization but the client is not authorized. Fixes bug 27550;
bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
- When selecting a v3 rendezvous point, not only look at the protover but
also if the curve25519 onion key is present. That way we avoid picking a
node that supports the v3 rendezvous but for which we don't have the
descriptor yet for the key. Fixes bug 27797; bugfix on 0.3.2.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (memory leaks):
- Fix a small memory leak when calling Tor with --dump-config.
Fixes bug 27893; bugfix on 0.3.2.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (networking):
- In retry_listeners_ports() make sure that we're removing
a member of old_conns smartlist at most once.
Fixes bug 27808; bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
- Refrain from attempting socket rebinding when old
and new listeners are in different address families.
Fixes bug 27928; bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (protover):
- Reject protocol names containing bytes other than alphanumeric characters
and hyphens ([A-Za-z0-9-]). Fixes bug 27316; bugfix on 0.2.9.4-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (testing):
- Make the the hs_service tests uses the same time source when creating
the introduction point and testing it. This helps make test work on very
slow system like ARM or Travis. Fixes bug 27810; bugfix on
0.3.2.1-alpha.
- In test_rebind.py check if Python version is in supported
ranges. Fixes bug 27675; bugfix on 0.3.5.1-alpha.
o Code simplification and refactoring:
- Divide more large Tor source files -- especially ones that span
multiple areas of functionality -- into smaller parts, including
onion.c and main.c. Closes ticket 26747.
- Divide the "routerparse.c" module into separate modules for each
group of parsed objects. Closes ticket 27924.
- Move protover_rust.c to the same place protover.c was moved to.
Closes ticket 27814.
- Split directory.c into separate pieces for client, server, and
common functionality. Closes ticket 26744.
- Split the non-statistics-related parts from the rephist.c and geoip.c
modules. Closes ticket 27892.
- Split the router.c file into relay-only and shared components,
to help with future modularization. Closes ticket 27864.
o Documentation:
- In tor-resolve(1) manpage, fix the reference to
socks-extensions.txt by adding web URL. Resolves
ticket 27853.
- Mention that we require Python to be 2.7 or newer for
integration tests that we ship with Tor. Resolves ticket
27677.
