    There's a new stable version of Tor!

    Tor backports a fix for a bug that would sometimes make clients unusable after they left standby mode. It also backports fixes for a few portability issues and a small but problematic memory leak.

    You can download the source from the usual place on the website. Packages should be available over the next several days, including a TorBrowser release around December 14. Remember to check the signatures!
