Bug fix for an issue that would leave SelekTOR running in the background instead of quitting after a failed registration.
Trial version has been discontinued, a license purchase is required.

The experimental branch is now in feature freeze meaning it is only going to receive bug fixes and some cleaning up of existing features.
I will also try and get a French language version together for simultaneous release with the English version although this cant be guaranteed.
Once I think its ready I will move it over to the Stable branch for release on all platforms.
The current Stable branch will continue to receive updates (if any) until then.

SelekTOR has been updated, it is highly recommended that you update to it as it fixes 2 bugs that were responsible for significant stability issues with the node testing cycle in all versions.
The Experimental release has also undergone a lot of changes and I am now closing in on feature freeze time at which point I will concentrate on bugs and stability prior to it becoming the mainline release.
If anyone wants to suggest any additional features or changes they would like to see then the should submit them by Saturday 13 Dec at which time I freeze it.
The Windows release is also on sale at a reduced price of $11.95 until Saturday 20 December when it reverts to $14.95 plus taxes.

Their is currently an issue in SelekTOR Stable where the testing cycle may come to a halt, I have seen this issue before so its probably a regression caused by my own clumsiness.
I hope to have this fixed and a new release out either tomorrow or Saturday.

This has some fixes taken from the stable branch that should provide significant improvements to its stability and operation plus 2 new features.
Added theming of the system tray popup so no more butt ugly java awt look.
Added a system tray information tooltip, also themed.
The new system tray functionality has been hacked on as java does not natively support swing and its theming on the system tray, its been tested on XFCE and Mate.
Some feedback regarding these facilities on other desktops would be nice.

Both releases have been updated, see package changelog for details.
Debugging has been turned off on the experimental release, If you need to see debug info then you can turn it on by launching from the CLI using
This will be the last blog post regarding SelekTOR updates it will now be up to ye all to check the package changelog for details of whats changed, I will post if their are essential updates for security issues though.
A new Windows release is forthcoming, the porting work is already done but it needs some extensive testing so it probably won’t see the light of day until Monday.

Fixed a code regression which would cause test threads to eventually fail with the No Circuits Available message.
This regression is also in the experimental release but wont get around to fixing it until late tomorrow.
