Tor Browser 6.0.2 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page [1]
and also from our distribution directory [2].

Tor Browser 6.0.2 is a fixup release to address the most pressing issues
we found after switching to Firefox 45.2.0esr.

In particular, we resolved a possible crash bug visible e.g. on Faceboook
or mega.nz and we fixed the broken PDF download button in the PDF reader.

Note: In version 6.0 we started code signing the OS X bundle for Gatekeeper
support. A side effect of this signature is that it makes it harder to
compare the bundles we ship with the bundles produced using reproducible
builds, therefore we plan [3] to post instructions for removing the OS X
code signing parts on our website soon. An other effect is that the
incremental update will not be working for users who installed the previous
version using the .dmg file, due to bug 19410 [4]. The internal updater
should still work, though, doing a complete update.
