Advanced Onion Router is designed to bypass various barriers with a secure, anonymous Internet connection. The program attempts to circumvent firewalls, website censorship, web tracking tools, and more. Allows user of almost any application that connects to the Internet. Unlike similar clients that require a configurable proxy, AOR is able to "force" a program to use the Tor network.
Note: Instructions for making Tor editions of Opera, Firefox, and Chat are included in the "Help" directory.

|How to extract:

- corrected: possible buffer overflow when deleting Flash player's history from a truncated .sol file (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
- corrected: when updating address maps using the "Associate addresses" dialog, the displayed exit node was changed to "new exit"
- corrected: the number of downloaded bytes was not shown by the Blacklist plugin unless a language file was loaded
- corrected: when an application sent a Socks5 connection request followed by an HTTP request without waiting for connection status for the Socks5 request, the Socks5 connection status was prepended to the HTTP reply; this error prevented some programs from using Socks5 with AdvOR, like the Tor Browser Bundle from torproject.org (thanks to anonymous for reporting this error on sf.net)
- corrected: the circuit build dialog could had been used to build a circuit with no nodes (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
- updates from the "Associate addresses" dialog are scheduled instead of updating address maps while the user changes them (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
- the function escaped() was replaced by esc_for_log() to solve some possible non-reentrancy problems and memory leaks caused by it
- added instructions for using the Dooble browser with AdvOR, a sample configuration file and a patch that prevents it from downloading scripts from Google to AdvOR\Help\Dooble (readme.txt, AdvOR.ini and patch-dooble.*).
- the Blacklist plugin now has an URL for the "Primary threats" blacklist from iblocklist.com (it can be selected from the URL history combo box)
- updated libraries: libevent-2.0.21-stable, openssl-1.0.1e, zlib-1.2.8, libntlm-1.4
- geoip_c.h was updated with GeoIPCountryWhois.csv released on November 5th; there are 86068 IP ranges having 102 ranges in the fake "A1" country; 102 ranges were approximated to real countries
