Changes in version 0.4.5.6 - 2021-02-15
BLURB
Below are the changes since 0.4.4.4-rc. For a complete list of changes
since 0.4.4.XXXX, see the ReleaseNotes file.
o Major bugfixes (IPv6, relay):
- Fix a bug that prevented a relay from publishing its descriptor if
an auto-discovered IPv6 that was found unreachable. Fixes bug
40279; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor features (protocol versions):
- Stop claiming to support the "DirCache=1" subprotocol version.
Technically, we stopped supporting this subprotocol back in
0.4.5.1-alpha, but we needed to wait for the authorities to stop
listing it as "required" before we could drop it from the list.
Closes ticket 40221.
o Minor bugfixes (logging):
- Avoid a spurious log message about missing subprotocol versions,
when the consensus that we're reading from is older than the
current release. Previously we had made this message nonfatal, but
in practice, it is never relevant when the consensus is older than
the current release. Fixes bug 40281; bugfix on 0.4.0.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (metrics port):
- Fix a bug warning when a metrics port socket was unexpectedly
closed. Fixes bug 40257; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha
o Minor bugfixes (relay):
- Allow relays to have a RFC1918 address if PublishServerDescriptor
is set to 0 and AssumeReachable is set to 1. This is to support
the use case of a bridge on a local network, exposed via a
pluggable transport. Fixes bug 40208; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (relay, config):
- Fix a problem in the removal of duplicate ORPorts from the
internal port list when loading the config file. We were removing
the wrong ports, breaking valid torrc uses cases for multiple
ORPorts of the same address family. Fixes bug 40289; bugfix
on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
Changes in version 0.4.5.5-rc - 2021-02-01
Tor 0.4.5.5-rc is the third release candidate in its series. We're
coming closer and closer to a stable release series. This release
o Minor bugfixes (logging):
- Avoid a spurious log message about missing subprotocol versions, when
the consensus that we're reading from is older than the current
release. . Previously we had made this message nonfatal in this case,
but in practice, it is never relevant when the consensus is older than
the current release. Fixes bug 40281; bugfix on 0.4.0.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (relay):
- Allow relays to have a RFC1918 address if PublishServerDescriptor is set
to 0 and AssumeReachable is set to 1. This is to support the use case of a
bridge on a local network that can be used by restricted users on that
network to reach the Tor network. Fixes bug 40208; bugfix on
0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor features (protocol versions):
- Stop claiming to support the "DirCache=1" subprotocol version.
Technically, we stopped supporting this subprotocol back in

40257; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha
o Major bugfixes (IPv6, relay):
- Fix a bug that prevented a relay to publish its descriptor in the case of
an auto-discovered IPv6 that was found unreachable for which we always
publish if the IPv4 is correct. Fixes bug 40279; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
o Minor bugfixes (relay, config):
- Fix a problem in the removal of duplicate ORPort from the internal port
list when loading config file. We were removing wrong ports breaking valid
torrc uses cases for multiple ORPorts of the same address family. Fixes
bug 40289; bugfix on 0.4.5.1-alpha.
