Arti 0.5.0 is here! Arti is our ongoing project to create an embeddable Tor client in Rust. This release adds cryptographic acceleration, a useful set of top-level build features, reachable-address filtering, & detection for failed directory downloads.

@torproject For a non-developer Tor user, what advantages would I find in using Arti (once it's production ready) over the current C implementation?

@ADHDefy @torproject according to Arti’s readme, lots of the security bugs of C Tor cannot exist if written in Rust. So I think one advantage is that the Rust implementation will be more secure once ready for production.

@torproject Please don't use Rust, it's a disaster for packagers.
