    hidden service handles a malformed BEGIN cell (bsc#1043455)
  * CVE-2017-0376: remotely triggerable assertion failure caused by
    receiving a BEGIN_DIR cell on a hidden service rendezvous
    circuit (bsc#1043456)
- further bug fixes:
  * link handshake fixes when changing x509 certificates
  * Regenerate link and authentication certificates whenever the key
    that signs them changes; also, regenerate link certificates
    whenever the signed key changes
  * When sending an Ed25519 signing->link certificate in a CERTS cell,
    send the certificate that matches the x509 certificate that was
    used on the TLS connection

* Tue May 16 2017
- tor
  * Fix an assertion failure in the hidden service directory code,
    which could be used by an attacker to remotely cause a Tor
    relay process to exit. TROVE-2017-002 bsc#1039211
  * Update geoip and geoip6 to the May 2 2017 Maxmind GeoLite2
    Country database.
  * Tor no longer refuses to download microdescriptors or
    descriptors if they are listed as "published in the future"
  * The getpid() system call is now permitted under the Linux
    seccomp2 sandbox, to avoid crashing with versions of OpenSSL
    (and other libraries) that attempt to learn the process's PID
    by using the syscall rather than the VDSO code
* Thu Apr 27 2017
- tor
  * clients and relays now use Ed25519 keys to authenticate their
    link connections to relays, rather than the old RSA1024 keys
    that they used before.
  * replace the guard selection and replacement algorithm to behave
    more robustly in the presence of unreliable networks, and to
    resist guard-capture attacks.
  * numerous other small features and bugfixes
  * groundwork for the upcoming hidden-services revamp
* Wed Mar 01 2017
- tor
  * directory authority: During voting, when marking a relay as a
    probable sybil, do not clear its BadExit flag: sybils can still
    be bad in other ways too.
  * IPv6 Exits: Stop rejecting all IPv6 traffic on Exits whose exit
    policy rejects any IPv6 addresses. Instead, only reject a port
    over IPv6 if the exit policy rejects that port on more than an
    IPv6 /16 of addresses.
  * parsing: Fix an integer underflow bug when comparing malformed
    Tor versions. This bug could crash Tor when built with
  - -enable-expensive-hardening, or on Tor through
    Tor, which were built with -ftrapv by default. In other
    cases it was harmless. Part of TROVE-2017-001 boo#1027539
  * Directory authorities now reject descriptors that claim to be
    malformed versions of Tor
  * Reject version numbers with components that exceed INT32_MAX.
  * Update geoip and geoip6 to the February 8 2017 Maxmind GeoLite2
    Country database.
  * The tor-resolve command line tool now rejects hostnames over 255
    characters in length
* Tue Jan 24 2017
- tor
  * Downgrade the "-ftrapv" option from "always on" to "only on
    when --enable-expensive-hardening is provided." This hardening
    option, like others, can turn survivable bugs into crashes --
    and having it on by default made a (relatively harmless)
    integer overflow bug into a denial-of-service bug
  * Fix a client-side onion service reachability bug
  * Update geoip and geoip6 to the January 4 2017 Maxmind GeoLite2
    Country database.
* Sun Jan 01 2017
- Remove conditionals for the sle11 as we won't build there due to
  openssl requirements. This reduces the logic in the spec file
  quite a bit
* Mon Dec 19 2016
- tor, the first stable release in the 0.2.9.x series:
  * make mandatory a number of security features that were formerly
  * support a new shared-randomness protocol that will form the
    basis for next generation hidden services
  * single-hop hidden service mode for optimizing .onion services
    that don't actually want to be hidden,
  * try harder not to overload the directory authorities with
    excessive downloads
  * support a better protocol versioning scheme for improved
    compatibility with other implementations of the Tor protocol
  * deprecated options for security: CacheDNS, CacheIPv4DNS,
    CacheIPv6DNS, UseDNSCache, UseIPv4Cache, and UseIPv6Cache,
    AllowDotExit, AllowInvalidNodes, AllowSingleHopCircuits,
    AllowSingleHopExits, ClientDNSRejectInternalAddresses,
    ExcludeSingleHopRelays, FastFirstHopPK, TLSECGroup,
    UseNTorHandshake, and WarnUnsafeSocks.
  * *ListenAddress options are now deprecated as unnecessary: the
    corresponding *Port options should be used instead. The
    affected options are:
    ControlListenAddress, DNSListenAddress, DirListenAddress,
    NATDListenAddress, ORListenAddress, SocksListenAddress,
    and TransListenAddress.
* Mon Dec 19 2016

- tor
  * Fix compilation with OpenSSL 1.1
* Fri Dec 02 2016
- tor
  * When Tor leaves standby because of a new application request,
    open circuits as needed to serve that request
  * Clients now respond to new application stream requests
    immediately when they arrive, rather than waiting up to one
    second before starting to handle them
  * small portability and memory handling issues
  * Update geoip and geoip6 to the November 3 2016 Maxmind GeoLite2
    Country database.
* Wed Oct 19 2016

- tor
  * The "Tonga" bridge authority has been retired; the new bridge
    authority is "Bifroest"
  * Only use the ReachableAddresses option to restrict the first
    hop in a path. In earlier versions of 0.2.8.x, it would apply
    to every hop in the path, with a possible degradation in
    anonymity for anyone using an uncommon ReachableAddress setting
* Sat Aug 13 2016
- tor
  * improve client bootstrapping performance
  * improved identity keys for relays (authority side)
  * numerous bug fixes and performance improvements
