Well mr-updates-needed, given 3.1.7 was just uploaded to Jessie proposed updates, you have nothing to complain about.
BTW - working nicely.
Given this version of Tor supports padding, I think we should recommended users set the following in their torrc file for better security against network analysis:
Major features (traffic analysis resistance):
Connections between clients and relays now send a padding cell in each direction every 1.5 to 9.5 seconds (tunable via consensus parameters). This padding will not resist specialized eavesdroppers, but it should be enough to make many ISPs’ routine network flow logging less useful in traffic analysis against Tor users.
Padding is negotiated using Tor’s link protocol, so both relays and clients must upgrade for this to take effect. Clients may still send padding despite the relay’s version by setting ConnectionPadding 1 in torrc, and may disable padding by setting ConnectionPadding 0 in torrc.
If you agree, I’ll edit the wiki here (they can add an additional line under the Sandbox 1 entry):
