    A new hardened Tor Browser release is available. It can be found in the 6.5a6-hardened distribution directory and on the download page for hardened builds.

    This release features important security updates to Firefox. Other components got an update as well: Tor to and HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.8.

    With this release the broken preferences pane in non-en-US locales is fixed and we moved to pt-BR for Portuguese as it turns out that all our translations for Portuguese are containing Brazilian language strings. We added links to the Tor Browser Manual, an effort led by the community team to make help easier available for our users in case of problems.
