Looking forward to talking about our work at @torproject at 15:00 in the Abacus tent at 🥳

Also remember the Relay Operators Meetup at 21:00 today in the c-base village!

Dear onion friends and relay operators at @MCH2022camp,

Join us tomorrow, Sunday at 2100 for a meetup to talk about Tor, running relays, and updates from our contributors.

See you at the c-base tent! Please bring your own chair!


🟣 HTTPS-Everywhere has led a long career protecting our users. Now, HTTPS is actually everywhere. Firefox calls this feature HTTPS-Only Mode. Starting in Tor Browser 11.5, HTTPS-Only Mode is enabled by default for desktop, & HTTPS-Everywhere will not be bundled with Tor Browser.

🟣 Plus, we've introduced a new feature called bridge cards. Before Tor Browser 11.5, bridges used to be almost invisible, even when configured. Now, your saved bridges appear in a handy stack of bridge cards—including new options for sharing bridges too.

🟣 We've also redesigned Tor Network settings for users who prefer to configure their connection manually. This includes a brand new name—Connection settings—connection statuses, and streamlined UX for selecting a bridge.

Show thread

🟣 Connection Assist is a new feature for users burdened by censorship. When Tor is blocked, Connection Assist will offer to automatically apply the bridge configuration we think will work best in your location.

🎉 Big news: Tor Browser 11.5 is here! In this release, we're bringing you automatic censorship detection and circumvention, redesigned Tor Network settings, Firefox's HTTPS-Only Mode enabled by default, and improved font support.

Take a look at what's new in Tor Browser 11.5:

es el país de América Latina que tiene un mayor ancho de banda para conectarse a la red Tor.

Para Jacobo Nájera, colaborador de @torproject, esto se debe a que tiene “una historia de persistencia y resistencia técnica y política”.

We're excited to share our latest annual report with you!

In the last year, Tor has mobilized against censorship, doubled the number of bridges on the network, & worked hard to make Tor faster.

"Сеть Tor — мощный и простой в использовании инструмент обеспечения анонимности. Благодаря ему правозащитники в странах с репрессивным режимом могут сообщать о нарушениях прав человека."


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.


If some people want to contribute to @torproject but don't know where to start, this week is hackweek ! This means peoples will work on smaller projects, some of which are technical, but some of which aren't, like a project about making comics that draw analogies on Tor.
