    We are pleased to announce another public beta release of Tor Messenger. This release features important improvements to the stability and security of Tor Messenger. All users are encouraged to upgrade.

    Tor Messenger 0.4.0b1 users will be automatically prompted to install the update (similar to Tor Browser). On installing and restarting, the update will be applied; your account settings and OTR keys will be preserved.

    Incremental Updates

    Incremental updates are disabled for this version and Tor Messenger will perform a complete update. There was a bug in the update MAR generation process that was fixed in d3834a99 but persisted across recent versions. To fix this and to ensure a smooth automatic update for future releases, we are pushing only complete updates for updating from version 0.4.0b1 to 0.4.0b2. What does this mean for you? Automatic updates will still be performed but will take a little longer.


    Please note that Tor Messenger is still in beta. The purpose of this release is to help test the application and provide feedback. At-risk users should not depend on it for their privacy and safety.
