Tor Releases Discussion



  1. Use latest stable in TPO repo and have tester use Tor nightly
    build in Whonix and report bug to TPO.
  • Pros: Latest features - Cons: Need a lot of active testers to
    guarantee the build is stable for Whonix before it uploaded to TPO
    repo, otherwise breakage will happen

It’s not just latest features.

  • better security

  • compatibility with Tor Browser (Using SocksPort with flags
    IPv6Traffic PreferIPv6 KeepAliveIsolateSOCKSAuth)

  • historically when there was a botnet starting to use Tor, the LTS
    version barely connected while the latest stable had the ntor
    handshake which worked (

Yes that’s right. Plus all the other benefits Patrick already mentioned in this thread.
