+Changes in version - 2020-01-30
+  This release backports several bugfixes from later release series,
+  including some that had affected the Linux seccomp2 sandbox or Windows
+  services. If you're running with one of those configurations, you'll
+  probably want to upgrade; otherwise, you should be fine with your
+  current version of 0.4.1.x.
+  o Major bugfixes (linux seccomp sandbox, backport from
+    - Correct how we use libseccomp. Particularly, stop assuming that
+      rules are applied in a particular order or that more rules are
+      processed after the first match. Neither is the case! In
+      libseccomp <2.4.0 this lead to some rules having no effect.
+      libseccomp 2.4.0 changed how rules are generated, leading to a
+      different ordering, which in turn led to a fatal crash during
+      startup. Fixes bug 29819; bugfix on Patch by
+      Peter Gerber.
+    - Fix crash when reloading logging configuration while the
+      experimental sandbox is enabled. Fixes bug 32841; bugfix on
+ Patch by Peter Gerber.
+  o Minor bugfixes (crash, backport form
+    - When running Tor with an option like --verify-config or
+      --dump-config that does not start the event loop, avoid crashing
+      if we try to exit early because of an error. Fixes bug 32407;
+      bugfix on
+  o Minor bugfixes (windows service, backport from
+    - Initialize the publish/subscribe system when running as a windows
+      service. Fixes bug 32778; bugfix on
+  o Testing (backport from
+    - Turn off Tor's Sandbox in Chutney jobs, and run those jobs on
+      Ubuntu Bionic. Turning off the Sandbox is a work-around, until we
+      fix the sandbox errors in 32722. Closes ticket 32240.
+    - Re-enable the Travis CI macOS Chutney build, but don't let it
+      prevent the Travis job from finishing. (The Travis macOS jobs are
+      slow, so we don't want to have it delay the whole CI process.)
+      Closes ticket 32629.
+  o Testing (continuous integration, backport from
+    - Use zstd in our Travis Linux builds. Closes ticket 32242.
