+Changes in version 0.2.4.13-alpha - 2013-06-14
+ Tor 0.2.4.13-alpha fixes a variety of potential remote crash
+ vulnerabilities, makes socks5 username/password circuit isolation
+ actually actually work (this time for sure!), and cleans up a bunch
+ of other issues in preparation for a release candidate.
+ o Major bugfixes (robustness):
+ - Close any circuit that has too many cells queued on it. Fixes
+ bug 9063; bugfix on the 54th commit of Tor. This bug is a further
+ fix beyond bug 6252, whose fix was merged into 0.2.3.21-rc.
+ - Prevent the get_freelists() function from running off the end of
+ the list of freelists if it somehow gets an unrecognized
+ allocation. Fixes bug 8844; bugfix on 0.2.0.16-alpha. Reported by
+ - Avoid an assertion failure on OpenBSD (and perhaps other BSDs)
+ when an exit connection with optimistic data succeeds immediately
+ rather than returning EINPROGRESS. Fixes bug 9017; bugfix on
+ - Fix a directory authority crash bug when building a consensus
+ using an older consensus as its basis. Fixes bug 8833. Bugfix
+ on 0.2.4.12-alpha.
+ o Major bugfixes:
+ - Avoid a memory leak where we would leak a consensus body when we
+ find that a consensus which we couldn't previously verify due to
+ missing certificates is now verifiable. Fixes bug 8719; bugfix
+ on 0.2.0.10-alpha.
+ - We used to always request authority certificates by identity digest,
+ meaning we'd get the newest one even when we wanted one with a
+ different signing key. Then we would complain about being given
+ a certificate we already had, and never get the one we really
+ wanted. Now we use the "fp-sk/" resource as well as the "fp/"
+ resource to request the one we want. Fixes bug 5595; bugfix on
+ - Follow the socks5 protocol when offering username/password
+ authentication. The fix for bug 8117 exposed this bug, and it
+ turns out real-world applications like Pidgin do care. Bugfix on
+ 0.2.3.2-alpha; fixes bug 8879.
+ - Prevent failures on Windows Vista and later when rebuilding the
+ microdescriptor cache. Diagnosed by Robert Ransom. Fixes bug 8822;
+ bugfix on 0.2.4.12-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes:
+ - Fix an impossible buffer overrun in the AES unit tests. Fixes
+ bug 8845; bugfix on 0.2.0.7-alpha. Found by eugenis.
+ - If for some reason we fail to write a microdescriptor while
+ rebuilding the cache, do not let the annotations from that
+ microdescriptor linger in the cache file, and do not let the
+ microdescriptor stay recorded as present in its old location.
+ Fixes bug 9047; bugfix on 0.2.2.6-alpha.
+ - Fix a memory leak that would occur whenever a configuration
+ option changed. Fixes bug 8718; bugfix on 0.2.3.3-alpha.
+ - Paste the description for PathBias parameters from the man
+ page into or.h, so the code documents them too. Fixes bug 7982;
+ bugfix on 0.2.3.17-beta and 0.2.4.8-alpha.
+ - Relays now treat a changed IPv6 ORPort as sufficient reason to
+ publish an updated descriptor. Fixes bug 6026; bugfix on
+ - When launching a resolve request on behalf of an AF_UNIX control
+ socket, omit the address field of the new entry connection, used in
+ subsequent controller events, rather than letting tor_dup_addr()
+ set it to "<unknown address type>". Fixes bug 8639; bugfix on
+ o Minor bugfixes (log messages):
+ - Fix a scaling issue in the path bias accounting code that
+ resulted in "Bug:" log messages from either
+ pathbias_scale_close_rates() or pathbias_count_build_success().
+ This represents a bugfix on a previous bugfix: the original fix
+ attempted in 0.2.4.10-alpha was incomplete. Fixes bug 8235; bugfix
+ on 0.2.4.1-alpha.
+ - Give a less useless error message when the user asks for an IPv4
+ address on an IPv6-only port, or vice versa. Fixes bug 8846; bugfix
+ on 0.2.4.7-alpha.
+ o Minor features:
+ - Downgrade "unexpected SENDME" warnings to protocol-warn for 0.2.4.x,
+ to tolerate bug 8093 for now.
+ - Add an "ignoring-advertised-bws" boolean to the flag-threshold lines
+ in directory authority votes to describe whether they have enough
+ measured bandwidths to ignore advertised (relay descriptor)
+ bandwidth claims. Resolves ticket 8711.
+ - Update to the June 5 2013 Maxmind GeoLite Country database.
+ o Removed documentation:
+ - Remove some of the older contents of doc/ as obsolete; move others
+ to torspec.git. Fixes bug 8965.
+ o Code simplification and refactoring:
+ - Avoid using character buffers when constructing most directory
+ objects: this approach was unwieldy and error-prone. Instead,
+ build smartlists of strings, and concatenate them when done.
