    The second alpha release in the 5.0 series of the Tor Browser is now available from our extended downloads page as well as the distribution directory.

    This release provides a fix for the Logjam attack (https://weakdh.org/) and updates a number of Tor Browser components: Tor to version, Torbutton to version, NoScript to version, meek to version 0.19 and HTTPS-Everywhere to version 5.0.5.
