Hi all,

We are pleased to accounce that Tor Browser 6.0.4 is ready for testing.
Bundles can be found on:

https://people.torproject.org/~boklm/builds/6.0.4-build2/

This release finally brings Tor Browser users the latest Tor stable,
0.2.8.6, and avoids pinging Mozilla servers for system extensions.

The latter was responsible for users getting an extension into their Tor
Browser that resulted in annoying and confusing "Your Firefox is out of
date" notifications on start-up (bug 19890). Thanks to Mozilla engineers
who fixed that issue as fast as possible on their side: the extension is
not shipped to Tor Browser users anymore if they ping Mozilla's server.
Users that are on the alpha channel or are using the hardened Tor
Browser were not affected. The same goes for Tails users as far as we know.

The full changelog since Tor Browser 6.0.3 is:

Tor Browser 6.0.4 -- August 16
 * All Platforms
   * Update Tor to 0.2.8.6
   * Update NoScript to 2.9.0.14
   * Bug 19890: Disable installation of system addons

Georg
