-  o Major bugfixes (IPv6, relay):

-  o Minor features (protocol versions):
-    - Stop claiming to support the "DirCache=1" subprotocol version.
-      Technically, we stopped supporting this subprotocol back in
-, but we needed to wait for the authorities to stop
-      listing it as "required" before we could drop it from the list.
-      Closes ticket 40221.

-  o Minor bugfixes (metrics port):
-    - Fix a bug warning when a metrics port socket was unexpectedly

-  o Minor bugfixes (relay):
-    - Allow relays to have a RFC1918 address if PublishServerDescriptor
-      is set to 0 and AssumeReachable is set to 1. This is to support

-  o Minor bugfixes (relay, config):
-    - Fix a problem in the removal of duplicate ORPorts from the
-      internal port list when loading the config file. We were removing
-      the wrong ports, breaking valid torrc uses cases for multiple

   o Major feature (exit):
     - Re-entry into the network is now denied at the Exit level to all
       relays' ORPorts and authorities' ORPorts and DirPorts. This change
       should help mitgate a set of denial-of-service attacks. Closes
       ticket 2667.

-  Tor is the first alpha release in the 0.4.5.x series. It
-  improves support for IPv6, address discovery and self-testing, code
-  metrics and tracing.
-  This release also fixes TROVE-2020-005, a security issue that could be
-  used, under certain cases, by an adversary to observe traffic patterns
-  on a limited number of circuits intended for a different relay. To
-  mount this attack, the adversary would need to actively extend
-  circuits to an incorrect address, as well as compromise a relay's
-  legacy RSA-1024 key. We'll be backporting this fix to other release
-  series soon, after it has had some testing.
