This first release candidate for 0.0.9 fixes a couple of bad bugs and
makes hibernation a bit cleaner.
(use -dPr tor-0_0_9rc1 if you want to check out from cvs)
o Bugfixes on 0.0.8.1:
- Finally fix a bug that's been plaguing us for a year:
With high load, circuit package window was reaching 0. Whenever
we got a circuit-level sendme, we were reading a lot on each
socket, but only writing out a bit. So we would eventually reach
eof. This would be noticed and acted on even when there were still
bytes sitting in the inbuf.
- When poll() is interrupted, we shouldn't believe the revents values.
o Bugfixes on 0.0.9pre6:
- Fix hibernate bug that caused pre6 to be broken.
- Don't keep rephist info for routers that haven't had activity for
24 hours. (This matters now that clients have keys, since we track
- Never call close_temp_logs while validating log options.
- Fix backslash-escaping on tor.sh.in and torctl.in.
- Implement weekly/monthly/daily accounting: now you specify your
hibernation properties by
AccountingMax N bytes|KB|MB|GB|TB
AccountingStart day|week|month [day] HH:MM
Defaults to "month 1 0:00".
- Let bandwidth and interval config options be specified as 5 bytes,
kb, kilobytes, etc; and as seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks.
- kill -USR2 now moves all logs to loglevel debug (kill -HUP to
get back to normal.)
- If your requested entry or exit node has advertised bandwidth 0,
pick it anyway.
- Be more greedy about filling up relay cells -- we try reading again
once we've processed the stuff we read, in case enough has arrived
to fill the last cell completely.
- Apply NT service patch from Osamu Fujino. Still needs more work.
