 Changes in version 0.2.9.4-alpha - 2016-10-17
-  Foo bar
+  Tor 0.2.9.4-alpha adds numerous small features and fix-ups to previous
+  versions of Tor, including the implementation of a feature to future-
+  proof the Tor ecosystem against protocol changes, some bug fixes
+  necessary for Tor Browser to use unix domain sockets correctly, and
+  several portability improvements. We anticipate that this will be the
+  last alpha in the Tor 0.2.9 series, and that the next release will be
+  a release candidate.
 
   o Major features (subprotocol versions):
-    - Tor directory authorities now vote on a set of recommended subprotocol
-      versions, and on a set of required subprotocol versions. Clients and
-      relays that lack support for a _required_ suprotocol version will not
-      start; those that lack support for a _recommended_ subprotocol version
-      will warn the user to upgrade. Closes ticket 19958; implements part of
-      proposal 264.
-    - Tor now uses "subprotocol versions" to indicate
-      compatibility. Previously, versions of Tor looked at the declared Tor
-      version of a relay to tell whether they could use a given feature.
-      Now, they should be able to rely on its declared subprotocol versions.
-      This change allows compatible implementations of the Tor protocol(s) to
-      exist without declaring compatibility with pretending to be particular
-      releases of Tor itself. Closes ticket 19958; implements part of
-      proposal 264.

   o Minor features (client, directory):
-    - Since authorities now omit all routers that lack the Running and Valid
-      flags, we assume that any relay listed in the consensus must
-      have those flags. Closes ticket 20001; implements part of proposal

-  o Minor features (unix domain sockets):
-    - When configuring a unix domain socket for a SocksPort,
-      ControlPort, or Hidden service, you can now wrap the address
-      in quotes, using C-style escapes inside the quotes. This
-      allows unix domain socket paths to contain spaces.

   o Minor features (virtual addresses):
