Tor fixes a regression introduced in that could
prevent relays from guessing their IP address correctly. It also fixes
several minor potential security bugs.

People running Tor as a relay should upgrade:

Changes in version - 2010-03-16
  o Major bugfixes:
    - Fix a regression from our patch for bug 1244 that caused relays
      to guess their IP address incorrectly if they didn't set Address
      in their torrc and/or their address fails to resolve. Bugfix on; fixes bug 1269.
    - When freeing a session key, zero it out completely. We only zeroed
      the first ptrsize bytes. Bugfix on 0.0.2pre8. Discovered and
      patched by ekir. Fixes bug 1254.

  o Minor bugfixes:
    - Fix a dereference-then-NULL-check sequence when publishing
      descriptors. Bugfix on Discovered by ekir; fixes
      bug 1255.
    - Fix another dereference-then-NULL-check sequence. Bugfix on Discovered by ekir; fixes bug 1256.
