+Changes in version 0.2.3.23-rc - 2012-10-20
+ Tor 0.2.3.23-rc adds a new v3 directory authority, fixes a privacy
+ vulnerability introduced by a change in OpenSSL, and fixes a variety
+ of smaller bugs in preparation for the release.
+ o New directory authorities:
+ - Add Faravahar (run by Sina Rabbani) as the ninth v3 directory
+ authority. Closes ticket 5749.
+ o Major bugfixes (security/privacy):
+ - Disable TLS session tickets. OpenSSL's implementation was giving
+ our TLS session keys the lifetime of our TLS context objects, when
+ perfect forward secrecy would want us to discard anything that
+ could decrypt a link connection as soon as the link connection
+ was closed. Fixes bug 7139; bugfix on all versions of Tor linked
+ against OpenSSL 1.0.0 or later. Found by Florent DaigniÃ¨re.
+ - Discard extraneous renegotiation attempts once the V3 link
+ protocol has been initiated. Failure to do so left us open to
+ a remotely triggerable assertion failure. Fixes CVE-2012-2249;
+ bugfix on 0.2.3.6-alpha. Reported by "some guy from France".
+ o Major bugfixes:
+ - Fix a possible crash bug when checking for deactivated circuits
+ in connection_or_flush_from_first_active_circuit(). Fixes bug 6341;
+ bugfix on 0.2.2.7-alpha. Bug report and fix received pseudonymously.
+ o Minor bugfixes (on 0.2.3.x):
+ - Fix two cases in src/or/transports.c where we were calling
+ fmt_addr() twice in a parameter list. Bug found by David
+ Fifield. Fixes bug 7014; bugfix on 0.2.3.9-alpha.
+ - Convert an assert in the pathbias code to a log message. The assert
+ appears to only be triggerable by Tor2Web mode. Fixes bug 6866;
+ bugfix on 0.2.3.17-beta.
+ - Fix memory leaks whenever we logged any message about the "path
+ bias" detection. Fixes bug 7022; bugfix on 0.2.3.21-rc.
+ o Minor bugfixes (on 0.2.2.x and earlier):
+ - Don't serve or accept v2 hidden service descriptors over a relay's
+ DirPort. It's never correct to do so, and disabling it might
+ make it more annoying to exploit any bugs that turn up in the
+ descriptor-parsing code. Fixes bug 7149.
+ - When relays refuse a "create" cell because their queue of pending
+ create cells is too big (typically because their cpu can't keep up
+ with the arrival rate), send back reason "resource limit" rather
+ than reason "internal", so network measurement scripts can get a
+ more accurate picture. Bugfix on 0.1.1.11-alpha; fixes bug 7037.
+ - Correct file sizes when reading binary files on Cygwin, to avoid
+ a bug where Tor would fail to read its state file. Fixes bug 6844;
+ bugfix on 0.1.2.7-alpha.
+ - Avoid undefined behaviour when parsing the list of supported
+ rendezvous/introduction protocols in a hidden service descriptor.
+ Previously, Tor would have confused (as-yet-unused) protocol version
+ numbers greater than 32 with lower ones on many platforms. Fixes
+ bug 6827; bugfix on 0.2.0.10-alpha. Found by George Kadianakis.
+ o Documentation fixes:
+ - Clarify that hidden services are TCP only. Fixes bug 6024.
Changes in version 0.2.4.3-alpha - 2012-09-22
Tor 0.2.4.3-alpha fixes another opportunity for a remotely triggerable
assertion, resumes letting relays test reachability of their DirPort,
