New Release: Tor Browser 8.5a6

Tor Browser 8.5a6 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory .

This release features important security updates to Firefox and updates OpenSSL to 1.0.2q for our desktop platforms.

The most exciting news, however, compared to the alpha release early last week, comes from progress we made on our mobile builds. Tor Browser 8.5a6 is the first version that is built reproducibly for Android devices and is localized in all locales the desktop platforms support.

Moreover, we added an updated donation banner for our year-end donation campaign.

Known Issues:

  1. This release is only supported on armv7 devices (most Android phones and tablets), but x86 devices are not supported yet (such as Chromebooks), even if the Google Playstore is suggesting different things.
  2. Downloading files on newer Android devices crashes Tor Browser. We are currently reviewing a potential fix .
