<p>Say goodbye to Tor Launcher.</p>
<p>This new Tor Browser release is focused on improving the internet access of users connecting through Tor in censored contexts.</p>
<p>During the past few years,<a href="https://community.torproject.org/user-research/reports/"> the UX team has been working on qualitatively improving the entire Tor Browser user journey:</a> from discovering to finding, downloading, installing, starting, and browsing; we released a seamless and familiar experience for our largest user base.</p>
<p><strong>What&#39;s New?</strong><br />
- V2 Onion Services Deprecation<br />
- Snowflake is now available as a bridge<br />
- Improving the user experience of connecting to Tor</p>
<p>Users have specifically reported that they find <a href="https://support.torproject.org/glossary/tor-launcher/">Tor Launcher</a> confusing. Research exposed these pain points and has demonstrated how confusion caused by cognitive overload delays the user&rsquo;s decision-making flow.

<p>Every June, we recognize Pride month because internet freedom and the human rights of LGBTQIA+ people go hand in hand.</p>
<p>Over the past year or so, we&#39;ve been working on &quot;Arti&quot;, a project to rewrite Tor in Rust. Thanks to funding from Zcash Open Major Grants (ZOMG), we can finally put the Arti project up in our priorities list, and devote more time to it.</p>
<p>LGBTQIA+ people have the right to access information, resources, and community relevant to their identities without being tracked, surveilled, censored, or persecuted&mdash;but in many parts of the world, governments block LGBTQIA+ content and punish people who engage with it. As a result, LGBTQIA+ people need privacy and censorship circumvention tools like Tor to communicate with their peers, find important resources, or fight for their rights without facing violence.</p>

## Snowflake moving to stable in Tor Browser 10.5
https://blog.torproject.org/snowflake-in-tor-browser-stable
## Help Tor Smash Bugs: August 1-31!
https://blog.torproject.org/tors-bug-smash-fund-2021
The Bug Smash Fund is back for its third year!
In 2019, we launched Tor’s Bug Smash Fund to raise money that would support our developers finding and fixing bugs in our software and to conduct routine maintenance. Maintenance isn’t a flashy new feature, and that makes it less interesting to many traditional funders, but it’s what keeps the reliable stuff working--and with your support, we’ve closed 370 Bug Smash Fund tickets.

## New Release: Tor Browser 10.5
https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-105
Tor Browser 10.5 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory.
We're excited to announce that Snowflake (https://snowflake.torproject.org) will be shipped as one of the default bridge options with stable versions of Tor Browser later this month.
This new Tor Browser release is focused on improving the internet access of users connecting through Tor in censored contexts.
What is Snowflake? Snowflake is a pluggable transport that uses a combination of domain fronting and peer-to-peer WebRTC connections between clients and volunteers to circumvent Internet censorship. Snowflake is highly censorship resistant, and used only for the initial bootstrapping of the connection. As such, it requires much lower bandwidth and shorter connections than existing domain fronting pluggable transports like meek (https://gitweb.torproject.org/pluggable-transports/meek.git/), making it a more scalable alternative.
What's New?
- V2 Onion Services Deprecation
- Snowflake is now available as a bridge
- Improving the user experience of connecting to Tor
For more about Snowflake, its design, and how it works for users, visit our blog: https://blog.torproject.org/snowflake-in-tor-browser-stable

Over the past year or so, we've been working on "Arti", a project to rewrite Tor in Rust. Thanks to funding from Zcash Open Major Grants (ZOMG), we can finally put the Arti project up in our priorities list, and devote more time to it.
During the past few years, the UX team has been working on qualitatively improving the entire Tor Browser user journey: from discovering to finding, downloading, installing, starting, and browsing; we released a seamless and familiar experience for our largest user base.
