Tor fixes reachability testing for servers, as well as partial
directory downloads. Servers should upgrade; clients who have flaky
or slow net connections will also benefit. We also bundle with the new
Vidalia version: 0.0.7.

Changes in version - 2006-07-05
  o Major bugfixes:
    - Fix a big bug that was causing servers to not find themselves
      reachable if they changed IP addresses. Since only
      servers can do reachability testing correctly, now we automatically
      make sure to test via one of these.
    - Fix to allow clients and mirrors to learn directory info from
      descriptor downloads that get cut off partway through.
    - Directory authorities had a bug in deciding if a newly published
      descriptor was novel enough to make everybody want a copy -- a few
      servers seem to be publishing new descriptors many times a minute.
  o Minor bugfixes:
    - Fix a rare bug that was causing some servers to complain about
      "closing wedged cpuworkers" and skip some circuit create requests.
    - Make the Exit flag in directory status documents actually work.
