Description

From the Changelog: https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/plain/ChangeLog

Changes in version 0.2.8.7 - 2016-08-24

Tor 0.2.8.7 fixes an important bug related to the ReachableAddresses option in 0.2.8.6, and replaces a retiring bridge authority. Everyone who sets the ReachableAddresses option, and all bridges, are strongly encouraged to upgrade.

o Directory authority changes:

  • The "Tonga" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge authority is "Bifroest". Closes tickets 19728 and 19690.

o Major bugfixes (client, security):

  • Only use the ReachableAddresses option to restrict the first hop in a path. In earlier versions of 0.2.8.x, it would apply to every hop in the path, with a possible degradation in anonymity for anyone using an uncommon ReachableAddress setting. Fixes bug 19973; bugfix on 0.2.8.2-alpha.

o Minor features (geoip):

  • Update geoip and geoip6 to the August 2 2016 Maxmind GeoLite2 Country database.

o Minor bugfixes (compilation):

  • Remove an inappropriate "inline" in tortls.c that was causing warnings on older versions of GCC. Fixes bug 19903; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha.

o Minor bugfixes (fallback directories):

  • Avoid logging a NULL string pointer when loading fallback directory information. Fixes bug 19947; bugfix on 0.2.4.7-alpha and 0.2.8.1-alpha. Report and patch by "rubiate".
