+4/28/12 - version 1.4.5
+Software isn't perfect and arm is no exception. This is a bugfix release that corrects most issues that users have reported over the last several months. This does not include any new features, but includes changes that are important for continued interoperability with tor.
+    * fix: unrecognized authentication methods (like 'SAFECOOKIE') would make arm crash (caught by E)
+    * fix: providing users a log message when DisableDebuggerAttachment breaks us
+    * fix: crashing issue when parsing tor log entries from leap years (fix by Sebastian, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/5265)
+    * fix: major terminal glitches related to the import of the readline module (caught by Stephan Seitz)
+    * fix: adding OSX (and probably BSD) support for pwd lookups (thanks to Sebastian, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4236)
+    * fix: unnecessary validation warnings for DirReqStatistics with new tor versions (caught by Sebastian, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4237)
+    * fix: better validation for path component of circuit-staus output (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/5267)
+    * fix: checking that the auth cookie is 32 bytes before reading (caught by rransom, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4305)
+    * fix: tor process detection on Mac/FreeBSD/OpenBSD broken due to different variant of ps (caught thanks to a test system from Jordi Espasa Clofent)
+    * fix: using only lsof for OpenBSD connection queries (caught thanks to a test system from Jordi Espasa Clofent)
+    * fix: torrc validation was case sensitive (caught by koolfy, thanks to help from Runa, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4601)
+    * fix: torrc validation warned of special deb Logging default (caught by koolfy, thanks to help from Sebastian and Runa, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4602)
+    * fix: snapshot handler had buggy path handling (caught by Jeff Bonner, http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=646080)
+    * fix: specifying python version requirement in rpm dependencies (caught by unSpawn, thanks to help from Juan Orti Alcaine)
+    * fix: proc utils didn't account for big-endian architectures (caught by swalker, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4777)
+    * fix: 'enter' on the connection page was mislabeled (patch by twilde, https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4621)
+    * fix: reproduced an ACS failure, noting it in the README and adding a config option to partly work around it (thanks to help from rransom)
+    * fix: circuit listing would fail to be updated if connection information was unavailable
+    * fix: errors in checking the auth cookie size prevented alternate authentication methods from being attempted
 9/25/11 - version 1.4.4 (881c67a)
 Besides the normal bug fixes and minor features, this release introduces the control port interpretor. This is a new page or standalone prompt that gives raw control port access with several usability improvements (tab completion, history, irc style help, interpretor commands, etc).
