This looks promising then, especially as I intend to expand the tor
nodes I'm donating to the network. Just added a middle in Japan
I'll definitely check it out, thanks for the effort put into this!!

>>Good evening to the list!
>>It's been a while since you've heard news about The Onion Box
>>This was due to the fact that I spent some time to implement the
>>ControlCenter, as ability to monitor several (better: as many as you
>>like) Tor nodes in parallel. This picture
>>gives you an impression of a ControlCenter in action.
>>The latest version
>>still labeled 'beta', yet seems stable enough to be released for
>>not finalized so far, but I'm convinced it is supportive enough to
>>lead you over the low hurdles to setup your box.
>>To upgrade your installation via pip
>><https://pypi.org/project/theonionbox/19.2b3/>, please use 'pip
>>install theonionbox==19.2b3 --upgrade' ... as it would otherwise still
>>pull the latest stable release (v4.3.1).
>>Please note that the support for Python 2 was dropped, so you have to
>>use Python 3.6 or higher to operate your Onion Box.
>>Any feedback ist highly appreciated. Enjoy!
