    A new hardened Tor Browser release is available. It can be found in the 6.0a3-hardened distribution directory and on the download page for hardened builds.

    This release features important security updates to Firefox.

    This release bumps the versions of several of our components, e.g.: Firefox to 38.7.0esr, Tor to 0.2.8.1-alpha, OpenSSL to 1.0.1s, NoScript to 2.9.0.4 and HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.1.4.

    Additionally, we fixed long-standing bugs in our Tor circuit display and window resizing code, and improved the usability of our font fingerprinting defense further.

    Note: There is no incremental update from 6.0a2-hardened available due to bug 17858. The internal updater should work, though, doing a complete update.

    Here is the complete changelog since 6.0a2-hardened:
