Software update: Tor Browser 8.0.5

Jan

2019

Version 8.0.5 of Tor Browser has been released. Tor stands for The Onion Router and is a network that can be used to surf anonymously over the internet. All user tcp traffic is routed along several Tor routers, after which it is virtually impossible for the recipient to find out who the original sender was. This information is still present within the Tor network, so that answers, of course again via the routers system, finally arrive at the right place. The release notes for this issue are as follows:

New Release Tor Browser 8.0.5
This new release updates Firefox to 60.5.0 and Tor to the first stable release in the 0.3.5 series, 0.3.5.7 . It contains a number of backports from the alpha series, most notably the proper first-party isolation or range of requests when loading PDF documents.

We also updated NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere and our donation campaign related code.
