[tor-relays] PSA: Tor 0.4.5 reaches end of life (EOL) on 2023-02-15

Hello!

In case it affects you as you are still running your relay or bridge on Tor 0.4.5.x: the 0.4.5 series is going EOL on *2023-02-15* (roughly in 3 weeks from now).

That's currently still 760 relays, which means roughly 7% of the advertised bandwidth of the network (and 387 bridges, which means roughly 9% of the advertised bridges bandwidth).

Please make sure you have upgraded to the 0.4.7.x series by then.

Supported releases in general can be found on the network team wiki.[1]

Thanks,
Georg

Asked this before, but no one answered, so I'll try adding on this thread.

What are the Tor signing keys? What key is being used here:

https://dist.torproject.org/tor-0.4.7.13.tar.gz.sha256sum.asc

I'm running a relay on Debian (flavor) - all software is up-to-date and the tor version installed is 4.5.16. So I think it's up the Debian admins to update tor on their repositories (?); that way at least the Debian relays would get a proper update I assume.

Hi,

Tortilla:
The keys being used on this signature are the keys of DGoulet and Ahf
(two members of the network team). You can find links to their keys on
this page Tor Project | People .
You can also read this thread on the forum:
Release 0.4.5.12 and 0.4.6.10 - #6 by dgoulet .

Petrarca:
For Debian (and Ubuntu and alike), it's recommended to use TorProject
repository as it is often more up to date than what Debian provides.
You can see how to enable this repository on this page

Hello,
thank you for running a relay!
Relays on Debian should add Tor's repository to their sources.list. You can
find the information you need in the third answer at
<https://support.torproject.org/apt/&gt;\.

My private key is attached. Please, use it and provide me yours!

Hello,

Searching on Debian repositories of the different versions I see no existence of a 0.4.5.16 version but I do see 0.3.5.16 on buster.

On bullseye you have 0.4.5.10 and you have 0.4.7.13 in backports. Anyways, it seems[1] it is recommended to use the deb.torproject.org repo which provides the latest version (0.4.7.13) from oldoldstable (stretch) to unstable (sid).

My CPU architecture is 'armhf' (hardware is Raspberry pi). So the post referenced below starts with pointing out that this setup is not supported. So any other way on how to upgrade easily on a new version of Tor ?

I believe there is a thread from last year on this mailing list[1] that should provide you with the information you are looking for.
