11/26/2016 (Sat) 06:09:14
Changes in version 0.2.9.5-alpha - 2016-11-08 Tor 0.2.9.5-alpha fixes numerous bugs discovered in the previous alpha version. We believe one or two probably remain, and we encourage everyone to test this release. o Major bugfixes (client performance): - Clients now respond to new application stream requests immediately when they arrive, rather than waiting up to one second before starting to handle them. Fixes part of bug 19969; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha. o Major bugfixes (client reliability): - When Tor leaves standby because of a new application request, open circuits as needed to serve that request. Previously, we would potentially wait a very long time. Fixes part of bug 19969; bugfix on 0.2.8.1-alpha. o Major bugfixes (download scheduling): - When using an exponential backoff schedule, do not give up on downloading just because we have failed a bunch of times. Since each delay is longer than the last, retrying indefinitely won't hurt. Fixes bug 20536; bugfix on 0.2.9.1-alpha.
