Hi all. Present status: gobbling birthday carrot cake. Before that, though, did a few things worth noting in September…
Stem: Connection Resolution Support
Stem can now provide you with the active connections belonging to a process. This is similar to arm, capable of doing lookups via seven *nix and FreeBSD resolution methods.
Unlike arm, however, this is a far cleaner implementation including both unit and integ tests. Unfortunately this doesn’t yet work with Tor’s DisableDebuggerAttachment feature, but I plan to look into workarounds for that soon.
‘How do I use this’, you ask? It’s easy!
Arm: Rewrote Starter Module
Arm is presently undergoing an overhaul, and this month I focused on its starter module. It’s now shorter, has unit tests, and is just generally damn better (before and after).
Other news this month includes…
- Google Summer of Code finals were last week. All the remaining students passed, having done great work – fingers crossed they stick around!
- DocTor’s python replacement is now happily chugging along on yatei and provides #tor-bots notifications.
- Attended a local TA3M meetup hosted by Lee Fisher. I’ll be presenting a ‘tor ecosystem’ talk at it in November.
- Notified outdates relays that will soon be dropped from the network if they don’t upgrade. (ticket)
- Investigated tor regression reported by stem’s jenkins tests. (ticket)
- Code reviewed Aaron’s TorPS.
- Fixed a stem caching bug regarding hidden service config options caught by wayzard.(ticket)
- My site (https://www.atagar.com, which hosts arm) finally has SSL support.
