Tor 0.0.9.4 fixes a server bug that took down most of the network (if
you're running a server, please upgrade; or if you're running cvs,
please cvs update). It also makes us more robust to running out of
o Bugfixes on 0.0.9:
- Fix an assert bug that took down most of our servers: when
a server claims to have 1 GB of bandwidthburst, don't
- Don't crash as badly if we have spawned the max allowed number
of dnsworkers, or we're out of file descriptors.
- Block more file-sharing ports in the default exit policy.
- MaxConn is now automatically set to the hard limit of max
file descriptors we're allowed (ulimit -n), minus a few for
- Give a clearer message when servers need to raise their
ulimit -n when they start running out of file descriptors.
- SGI Compatibility patches from Jan Schaumann.
- Tolerate a corrupt cached directory better.
- When a dirserver hasn't approved your server, list which one.
- Go into soft hibernation after 95% of the bandwidth is used,
not 99%. This is especially important for daily hibernators who
have a small accounting max. Hopefully it will result in fewer
cut connections when the hard hibernation starts.
- Load-balance better when using servers that claim more than
800kB/s of capacity.
