Tor: An anonymous Internet communication system ready for download

Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.
The Tor project was launched by The Free Haven Project in 2002. In the past, Tor development was funded by contracts with the Naval Research Lab (inventor of onion routing) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (who still kindly hosts our website). Sponsors of Tor get personal attention, better support, publicity (if they want it), and get to influence the direction of our research and development!

This is the ninth development snapshot for the 0.1.1.x series. We fix some memory leaks from the last snapshot, remove a lot of extra confusing log warnings, and fix other bugs.
