Tor configs haven't changed much since 2013.

And that's deliberate: every time we update the minimal torrc, package managers
ask operators if they want to overwrite their existing torrc, and some operators
say "yes". Then they wonder why their relays break.

Instead, we have:

We'll push a torrc.minimal update when there are enough changes, or when
there's a critical update. (We try to make the torrc code backwards compatible,
so that doesn't happen very often.)
