Tor-related work that Mark and Kathy did this month:
- Had a brief discussion r.e. possible use of Tor Launcher inside
Tails (Vidalia will need to be phased out at some point).
- Re-based and tweaked patches to help Mike land two important
fixes that we made for TBB 3.0beta1:
Directory reorganization (will make future updates easier).
Patch Tor Browser to find profiles in correct TBB location.
- Spent more time updating various Tor Browser patches for Firefox
ESR 24. Between Mike and us, this process has now been completed
(although Mike may find more ESR 24 changes that Mozilla made
that necessitate new patches).
- Helped update Torbutton for compatibility with Firefox ESR 24:
- Made a little more progress in adapting Firefox's updater for use
in TBB. Updating of bundled extensions will be handled by
including "force overwrite" instructions in the MAR files (these
are the files that carry updates to the browser).
- Resolve issues related to handling of TBB version.
- Re-base patches to Firefox ESR 24 and commit.
- Work with Mike and Erinn to create a process to
generate MAR files when they spin new releases of TBB.
