  1. Use latest stable in TPO repo and have tester use Tor nightly
    build in Whonix and report bug to TPO.

    guarantee the build is stable for Whonix before it uploaded to TPO
    repo, otherwise breakage will happen

It’s not just latest features.

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