Running Qubes 3.2 with newest Whonix-Gateway RPM 3.0.6-2016-12182342 
The arm monitor reports the current Tor package at version: 0.2.9.9 (unrecommended)
The (unrecommended) tag is in red, as if to possibly warn the user of an insecure version of Tor.
The Tor Blog reports the newest Tor version in the 3 series as 0.3.0.10 on August 02, 2017 
Running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade has not offered any Tor upgrades in a while.
Why isn’t a newer recommended version of Tor offered in the Whonix-Gateway?
Is running this old 0.2.9.9 version possibly unsafe?
How does one upgrade to a newer recommended version of Tor?
