+Changes in version 0.3.1.5-alpha - 2017-08-01
+ Tor 0.3.1.5-alpha improves the performance of consensus diff
+ calculation, fixes a crash bug on older versions of OpenBSD, and fixes
+ several other bugs. If no serious bugs are found in this version, the
+ next version will be a release candidate.
+ This release also marks the end of support for the Tor 0.2.4.x,
+ 0.2.6.x, and 0.2.7.x release series. Those releases will receive no
+ further bug or security fixes. Anyone still running or distributing
+ one of those versions should upgrade.
+ o Major features (build system, continuous integration):
+ - Tor's repository now includes a Travis Continuous Integration (CI)
+ configuration file (.travis.yml). This is meant to help new
+ developers and contributors who fork Tor to a Github repository be
+ better able to test their changes, and understand what we expect
+ to pass. To use this new build feature, you must fork Tor to your
+ Github account, then go into the "Integrations" menu in the
+ repository settings for your fork and enable Travis, then push
+ your changes. Closes ticket 22636.
+ o Major bugfixes (openbsd, denial-of-service):
+ - Avoid an assertion failure bug affecting our implementation of
+ inet_pton(AF_INET6) on certain OpenBSD systems whose strtol()
+ handling of "0xfoo" differs from what we had expected. Fixes bug
+ 22789; bugfix on 0.2.3.8-alpha. Also tracked as TROVE-2017-007.
+ o Major bugfixes (relay, performance):
+ - Perform circuit handshake operations at a higher priority than we
+ use for consensus diff creation and compression. This should
+ prevent circuits from starving when a relay or bridge receives a
+ new consensus, especially on lower-powered machines. Fixes bug
+ 22883; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
+ o Minor features (bridge authority):
+ - Add "fingerprint" lines to the networkstatus-bridges file produced
+ by bridge authorities. Closes ticket 22207.
+ o Minor features (directory cache, consensus diff):
+ - Add a new MaxConsensusAgeForDiffs option to allow directory cache
+ operators with low-resource environments to adjust the number of
+ consensuses they'll store and generate diffs from. Most cache
+ operators should leave it unchanged. Helps to work around
+ bug 22883.
+ o Minor features (geoip):
+ - Update geoip and geoip6 to the July 4 2017 Maxmind GeoLite2
+ Country database.
+ o Minor features (relay, performance):
+ - Always start relays with at least two worker threads, to prevent
+ priority inversion on slow tasks. Part of the fix for bug 22883.
+ - Allow background work to be queued with different priorities, so
+ that a big pile of slow low-priority jobs will not starve out
+ higher priority jobs. This lays the groundwork for a fix for
+ bug 22883.
+ o Minor bugfixes (build system, rust):
+ - Fix a problem where Rust toolchains were not being found when
+ building without --enable-cargo-online-mode, due to setting the
+ $HOME environment variable instead of $CARGO_HOME. Fixes bug
+ 22830; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha. Fix by Chelsea Komlo.
+ o Minor bugfixes (compatibility, zstd):
+ - Write zstd epilogues correctly when the epilogue requires
+ reallocation of the output buffer, even with zstd 1.3.0.
+ (Previously, we worked on 1.2.0 and failed with 1.3.0). Fixes bug
+ 22927; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (compilation warnings):
+ - Suppress -Wdouble-promotion warnings with clang 4.0. Fixes bug
+ 22915; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha.
+ - Fix warnings when building with libscrypt and openssl scrypt
+ support on Clang. Fixes bug 22916; bugfix on 0.2.7.2-alpha.
+ - Compile correctly when both openssl 1.1.0 and libscrypt are
+ detected. Previously this would cause an error. Fixes bug 22892;
+ bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
+ - When building with certain versions of the mingw C header files,
+ avoid float-conversion warnings when calling the C functions
+ isfinite(), isnan(), and signbit(). Fixes bug 22801; bugfix
+ on 0.2.8.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (coverity build support):
+ - Avoid Coverity build warnings related to our BUG() macro. By
+ default, Coverity treats BUG() as the Linux kernel does: an
+ instant abort(). We need to override that so our BUG() macro
+ doesn't prevent Coverity from analyzing functions that use it.
+ Fixes bug 23030; bugfix on 0.2.9.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (directory authority):
+ - When a directory authority rejects a descriptor or extrainfo with
+ a given digest, mark that digest as undownloadable, so that we do
+ not attempt to download it again over and over. We previously
+ tried to avoid downloading such descriptors by other means, but we
+ didn't notice if we accidentally downloaded one anyway. This
+ behavior became problematic in 0.2.7.2-alpha, when authorities
+ began pinning Ed25519 keys. Fixes bug 22349; bugfix
+ on 0.2.1.19-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (error reporting, windows):
+ - When formatting Windows error messages, use the English format to
+ avoid codepage issues. Fixes bug 22520; bugfix on 0.1.2.8-alpha.
+ Patch from "Vort".
+ o Minor bugfixes (file limits, osx):
+ - When setting the maximum number of connections allowed by the OS,
+ always allow some extra file descriptors for other files. Fixes
+ bug 22797; bugfix on 0.2.0.10-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (linux seccomp2 sandbox):
+ - Avoid a sandbox failure when trying to re-bind to a socket and
+ mark it as IPv6-only. Fixes bug 20247; bugfix on 0.2.5.1-alpha.
+ o Minor bugfixes (memory leaks):
+ - Fix a small memory leak when validating a configuration that uses
+ two or more AF_UNIX sockets for the same port type. Fixes bug
+ 23053; bugfix on 0.2.6.3-alpha. This is CID 1415725.
+ o Minor bugfixes (unit tests):
+ - test_consdiff_base64cmp would fail on OS X because while OS X
+ follows the standard of (less than zero/zero/greater than zero),
+ it doesn't follow the convention of (-1/0/+1). Make the test
+ comply with the standard. Fixes bug 22870; bugfix on 0.3.1.1-alpha.
+ - Fix a memory leak in the link-handshake/certs_ok_ed25519 test.
+ Fixes bug 22803; bugfix on 0.3.0.1-alpha.
