Tor 0.1.0.17 fixes a crash bug for servers that enable hibernation,
lets Windows servers scale better, and tries to reduce the bandwidth
overhead from the old-style directory protocol. Both clients and servers
are encouraged to upgrade.
Changes in version 0.1.0.17 - 2006-02-17
o Crash bugfixes on 0.1.0.x:
- When servers with a non-zero DirPort came out of hibernation,
sometimes they would trigger an assert.
o Other important bugfixes:
- On platforms that don't have getrlimit (like Windows), we were
artificially constraining ourselves to a max of 1024
connections. Now just assume that we can handle as many as 15000
connections. Hopefully this won't cause other problems.
o Backported features:
- When we're a server, a client asks for an old-style directory,
and our write bucket is empty, don't give it to him. This way
small servers can continue to serve the directory *sometimes*,
without getting overloaded.
- Whenever you get a 503 in response to a directory fetch, try
once more. This will become important once servers start sending
503's whenever they feel busy.
- Fetch a new directory every 120 minutes, not every 40 minutes.
Now that we have hundreds of thousands of users running the old
directory algorithm, it's starting to hurt a lot.
- Bump up the period for forcing a hidden service descriptor upload
from 20 minutes to 1 hour.
