Software-update: Tor Browser 7.5

Tor Browser Bundle logo (75 pix) Versie 7.5 van Tor Browser is uitgekomen. Tor staat voor The Onion Router en is een netwerk dat gebruikt kan worden om redelijk anoniem over internet te surfen. Al het tcp-verkeer van gebruikers wordt langs verschillende Tor-routers geleid, waarna het voor de ontvanger vrijwel niet meer mogelijk is om na te gaan wie de oorspronkelijke verzender was. Binnen het Tor-netwerk is die informatie nog wel aanwezig, zodat antwoorden, uiteraard ook weer via het stelsel van routers, uiteindelijk weer op de juiste plek aankomen. De release notes voor deze uitgave zien er als volgt uit:

Tor Browser 7.5 is released
The Tor Browser Team is proud to announce the first stable release in the 7.5 series.
This release features important security updates to Firefox. Apart from the usual Firefox security updates it contains some notable improvements compared to the 7.0 series. Here are the highlights:
  1. We redesigned parts of the Tor Browser user interface. One of the major improvements for our users is our new Tor Launcher experience. This work is based on the findings published at 'A Usability Evaluation of Tor Launcher', a paper done by Linda Lee et al. At our work we iterated on the redesign proposed by the research, improving it even further. Here are the main changes we would like to highlight:

    Welcome Screen
    Our old screen had way too much information for the users, leading many of them to spend great time confused about what to do. Some users at the paper experiment spent up to 40min confused about what they needed to be doing here. Besides simplifying the screen and the message, to make it easier for the user to know if they need to configure anything or not, we also did a 'brand refresh' bringing our logo to the launcher.

    Censorship circumvention configuration
    This is one of the most important steps for a user who is trying to connect to Tor while their network is censoring Tor. We also worked really hard to make sure the UI text would make it easy for the user to understand what a bridge is for and how to configure to use one. Another update was a little tip we added at the drop-down menu (as you can see below) for which bridge to use in countries that have very sophisticated censorship methods.

    Proxy help information
    The proxy settings at our Tor Launcher configuration wizard is an important feature for users who are under a network that demands such configuration. But it can also lead to a lot of confusion if the user has no idea what a proxy is. Since it is a very important feature for users, we decided to keep it in the main configuration screen and introduced a help prompt with an explanation of when someone would need such configuration.
    As part of our work with the UX team, we will also be coordinating user testing of this new UI to continue iterating and make sure we are always improving our users' experience. We are also planning a series of improvements not only for the Tor Launcher flow but for the whole browser experience (once you are connected to Tor) including a new user onboarding flow. And last but not least we are streamlining both our mobile and desktop experience: Tor Browser 7.5 adapted the security slider design we did for mobile bringing the improved user experience to the desktop as well.

  2. We ship the first release in Tor's 0.3.2 series, 0.3.2.9. This release includes support for the Next Generation of Onion Services.
  3. On the security side we enabled content sandboxing on Windows and fixed remaining issues on Linux that prevented printing to file from working properly. Additionally, we improved the compiler hardening on macOS and fixed holes in the W^X mitigation on Windows.
  4. We finally moved away from Gitian/tor-browser-bundle as the base of our reproducible builds environment. Over the past weeks and months rbm/tor-browser-build got developed making it much easier to reproduce Tor Browser builds and to add reproducible builds for new platforms and architectures. This will allow us to ship 64bit bundles for Windows (currently in the alpha series available) and bundles for Android at the same day as the release for the current platforms/architectures is getting out.

Wijzig sortering
Klopt het dat ik met windows alleen 32 bit versie van de Tor browser kan krijgen?

Nee, volgens mij detecteert de pagina dat zelf, aangezien hier staat "32/64-bit".

Blijkbaar nog niet, want is in bta. Heb geen idee waarom dat dan daar zo staat. Wellicht om te vermelden dat het voor zowel 32- als 64-bit systemen beschikbaar is.

[Reactie gewijzigd door AnonymousWP op 25 januari 2018 19:04]

Dat laatste, ja. Ik dacht eerst dat het een universele installer was, maar na controle blijkt echt de 32-bit firefox.exe te draaien.
Apart dat als ik update via TOR zelf (7.0.2), de download 64.2MB is, en als ik hem van torproject.org haal, het 52.1MB is.
Anders gepackaged waarschijnlijk. Verschil in compressie of algoritme kan een verklaring zijn. Al weet ik het niet zeker.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
