+Changes in version 0.1.1.24 - 2006-09-29
+ o Major bugfixes:
+ - Allow really slow clients to not hang up five minutes into their
+ directory downloads (suggested by Adam J. Richter).
+ - Fix major performance regression from 0.1.0.x: instead of checking
+ whether we have enough directory information every time we want to
+ do something, only check when the directory information has changed.
+ This should improve client CPU usage by 25-50%.
+ - Don't crash if, after a server has been running for a while,
+ it can't resolve its hostname.
+ - When a client asks us to resolve (not connect to) an address,
+ and we have a cached answer, give them the cached answer.
+ Previously, we would give them no answer at all.
+ o Minor bugfixes:
+ - Allow Tor to start when RunAsDaemon is set but no logs are set.
+ - Don't crash when the controller receives a third argument to an
+ "extendcircuit" request.
+ - Controller protocol fixes: fix encoding in "getinfo addr-mappings"
+ response; fix error code when "getinfo dir/status/" fails.
+ - Fix configure.in to not produce broken configure files with
+ more recent versions of autoconf. Thanks to Clint for his auto*
+ - Fix security bug on NetBSD that could allow someone to force
+ uninitialized RAM to be sent to a server's DNS resolver. This
+ only affects NetBSD and other platforms that do not bounds-check
+ - Warn user when using libevent 1.1a or earlier with win32 or kqueue
+ methods: these are known to be buggy.
+ - If we're a directory mirror and we ask for "all" network status
+ documents, we would discard status documents from authorities
+ we don't recognize.
Changes in version 0.1.1.23 - 2006-07-30
