cypherpunks said in the ticket:
The first released tor version with this feature is 0.3.1.1-alpha.
As usual there will be alpha packages on deb.torproject.org
If you want this feature now you can use the nightly builds:
A detailed instruction has been written in the new /etc/tor/torrc file (in Whonix, the path is
/etc/tor/torrc.anondist-orig) shipped with the Tor nightly:
## Configuration options can be imported from files or folders using the %include ## option with the value being a path. If the path is a file, the options from the ## file will be parsed as if they were written where the %include option is. If ## the path is a folder, all files on that folder will be parsed following lexical ## order. Files starting with a dot are ignored. Files on subfolders are ignored. ## The %include option can be used recursively. #%include /etc/torrc.d/ #%include /etc/torrc.custom
- update related Whonix wiki
- Should we change a way to organize the tor configuration files in Whonix?
- if so, we probably also need to do minor changes on other related/influenced part, eg. the command line used to restart/reload Tor?
ps. It seems updating to Tor nightly in Whonix will not update the /etc/tor/torrc file automatically. I will investigate on this and post the findings below
