 Changes in version 0.2.9.3-alpha - 2016-09-2?

+  high-performance services available through the Tor .onion mechanism
+  without themselves receiving anonymity as they host those services. It
+  also tries harder to ensure that all steps on a circuit are using the
+  strongest crypto possible, strengthens some TLS properties, and
   resolves several bugs -- including a pair of crash bugs from the 0.2.8
   series. Anybody running an earlier version of 0.2.9.x should upgrade.

   o Major features (circuit building, security):
     - Authorities, relays and clients specifically check that each
       descriptor has an ntor key.

+    - Circuit-building code assumes that all hops can use ntor, except

     - Client code never chooses nodes without ntor keys: they will not
       be selected during circuit-building, or as guards, or as directory
       mirrors, or as introduction or rendezvous points.
-    - Clients avoid downloading a descriptor if the relay version is
-      too old to support ntor.

     - Tor authorities, relays, and clients only use ntor, except for
       rare cases in the hidden service protocol.
 
   o Major features (onion services):
     - Add experimental HiddenServiceSingleHopMode and
-      HiddenServiceNonAnonymousMode options. When both are set to 1, every
-      hidden service on a tor instance becomes a non-anonymous Single Onion
-      Service. Single Onions make one-hop (direct) connections to their
-      introduction and renzedvous points. One-hop circuits make Single Onion
-      servers easily locatable, but clients remain location-anonymous.
-      This is compatible with the existing hidden service implementation, and
-      works on the current tor network without any changes to older relays or
-      clients.

   o Major features (resource management):
-    - Tor now includes support for noticing when we are about to run out of
-      sockets, and preemptively closing connections of lower priority.
-      (This feature is off by default for now, since the current prioritizing

   o Major bugfixes (hidden services):
-    - Clients require hidden services to include the TAP keys
-      for their intro points in the hidden service descriptor.
-      This prevents an inadvertent upgrade to ntor, which a

-  o Minor feature (port flags):
-    - Add *Port flags NoDNSRequest and NoOnionTraffic, and
-      the synthetic flag OnionTrafficOnly, which is equivalent to
-      NoDNSRequest, NoIPv4Traffic, and NoIPv6Traffic.
-      Closes enhancement 18693; patch by "teor".

+    - Servers no longer support clients that do not provide AES
+      ciphersuites. (3DES is no longer considered an acceptable cipher.)
+      We believe that no such clients currently exist, since we have
+      required OpenSSL 0.9.7 or later since 2009. Closes ticket 19998.
 
-  o Minor features (testing, ipv6):
-    - Add the single-onion and single-onion-ipv6 chutney targets to

     - The unit tests now log all warning messages with the "BUG" flag.

   o Minor bugfixes (allocation):

-      a (currently impossible) integer overflow, and to waste less space
-      when allocating unusually large chunks. Fixes bug 20081; bugfix on
