Some more bugs fixed, including an assert, a rare infinite loop, and
some key rotation bugs.
(use -t tor-0_0_8pre3 if you want to check out from cvs)
Changes from 0.0.7.2:
o Allow multiple ORs with same nickname in routerlist -- now when
people give us one identity key for a nickname, then later
another, we don't constantly complain until the first expires.
o Remember used bandwidth (both in and out), and publish 15-minute
snapshots for the past day into our descriptor.
o You can now fetch $DIRURL/running-routers to get just the
running-routers line, not the whole descriptor list. (But
clients don't use this yet.)
o When people mistakenly use Tor as an http proxy, point them
at the tor-doc.html rather than the INSTALL.
o Remove our mostly unused -- and broken -- hex_encode()
function. Use base16_encode() instead. (Thanks to Timo Lindfors
for pointing out this bug.)
o Rotate onion keys every 12 hours, not every 2 hours, so we have
fewer problems with people using the wrong key.
o Change the default exit policy to reject the default edonkey,
kazaa, gnutella ports.
o Add replace_file() to util.[ch] to handle win32's rename().
Changes from 0.0.8preX:
o Fix two bugs in saving onion keys to disk when rotating, so
hopefully we'll get fewer people using old onion keys.
o Fix an assert error that was making SocksPolicy not work.
o Be willing to expire routers that have an open dirport -- it's
just the authoritative dirservers we want to not forget.
o Reject tor-resolve requests for .onion addresses early, so we
don't build a whole rendezvous circuit and then fail.
o When you're warning a server that he's unverified, don't cry
o Fix a race condition: don't try to extend onto a connection
that's still handshaking.
o For servers in clique mode, require the conn to be open before
you'll choose it for your path.
o Fix some cosmetic bugs about duplicate mark-for-close, lack of
end relay cell, etc.
o Measure bandwidth capacity over the last 24 hours, not just 12
o Bugfix: authoritative dirservers were making and signing a new
directory for each client, rather than reusing the cached one.
