Release Notes: This release bumps tor to version and the kernel to 3.13.5 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches. All other components are kept at the same versions as the previous release. It also adds haveged, a daemon to help generate entropy on diskless systems, for a more cryptographically sound system. Testing shows that previous versions of tor-ramdisk were operating at near zero entropy, while haveged easily keeps the available entropy close to 9000 bits. Upgrading is strongly encouraged.

Release Notes: For the i686 and x86_64 ports, Tor was updated to, libevent to 2.0.20, and the kernel to 3.6.7 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.6.7-1.extras. The MIPS port also incorporates these changes, but for this architecture, libevent was updated to 2.0.21, while the kernel was kept at vanilla 3.2.5.

Release Notes: This release incorporates major changes from upstream to all components of tor-ramdisk. Tor was updated to, libevent to 2.0.18, OpenSSH to 6.0p1, BusyBox to 1.20.0, and uclibc to, and the kernel was updated to 3.2.11 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.2.11-1.extras. The MIPS port also incorporated these changes, but for this architecture libevent was updated to 2.0.19 and the kernel to 3.2.5.

Release Notes: This release implements the changes included in the recent i686 release, but for the MIPS architecture: tor was updated to, busybox to 1.14.3, and the kernel was reconfigured to provide FILE_LOCKING required by tor's new 0.2.1.x branch. Tor node "mufasa" is running this release in the wild.

Release Notes: Tor has been updated to, busybox has been updated to 1.14.3, and the toolchain to build the image has been updated to uClibc- and gcc-4.4.1, patched with Gentoo's hardened-development espf-0.3.3 to address a compiler bug in the older toolchain revealed by tor's 0.2.1.x codebase.

Release Notes: A netboot image for the MIPS port is now available for the Atheros AR7161 CPU found on router boards such as the RB433AH. This image has been tested "in the wild". Both big and little endian images for a QEMU emulated environment are also available for testing purposes. All binaries are now statically linked against uClibc, fixing broken DNS resolution and time synchronization.
