Hi everyone,

I want to announce 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 version, busybox to 1.24.1, openssh to
7.4_p1, and the kernel to 4.2.6 plus Gentoo's
hardened-patches-4.2.6-8.extras.  We also switched from openssl to
libressl 2.2.5.
