I’ve been running Gateway 11 Testing for quite some time. I always run the Gateway with 192 MiB allocated memory, or less.
Prior to the ‘official’ Gateway 11 release, after User Login, you could see the Tor tunnel build progress, followed by "Connected to Tor’, followed by the Time Sync, of course.
However, it seems that since the ‘official’ Gateway 11 release (and following a full apt-get update), after User Login, no Tor tunnel build progress is shown, and no Connected to Tor message is displayed. Of course, despite not being displayed/confimed, Tor is running. This can be verified with whonixcheck, but the user is left blind (of late) when running the Gateway in low graphics mode. However, IMHO, that is an unnecessary, and slow, way to obtain a critical piece of information.
Please either explain why this change was made, or restore the prior functionality.
