Hi everyone

I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is out. 
Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only 
purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes 
security and privacy. Security is enhanced by hardening the kernel and 
binaries, and privacy is enhanced by forcing logging to be off at all 
levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal 
information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no 
information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and 
the private RSA key, which may be exported/imported by FTP or SCP.


Tor was updated to, BusyBox to 1.22.1, OpenSSL to 1.0.1i, and 
the kernel to 3.16.3 + Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.16.3-1.extras.  Other 
packages remain at the same version as the pervious release.
