Delay on the TorBox project due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Updated on May 6th, 2020
  • All comments and questions are now answered. Thanks for your patience.
  • The documentation for TorBox v.0.3.0 is now revised, and the rest of the website is adapted to this latest version. Also, additional entries in the FAQ have been added, based on the questions received.
  • Important: You can safely update TorBox v.0.3.0 (initially with Linux v.4.19.75 and Tor v.0.4.2.5 to Linux v.4.19.97 and Tor v.0.4.2.7) using the first entry “Update the base system” in the “Update and Reset sub-menu” (main menu entry 12). An update is recommended because Tor v.0.4.2.5 shouldn’t be used anymore. We are going to build a new image in the next weeks and TorBox v.0.3.1 is already in the making.
Original post:

Initially, it was planned to update the TorBox website according to the latest version of the TorBox by the end of April. Primarily the documentation is still focused on the older version. I also intended to add more fixes and even some newer features to the TorBox itself.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I found myself In my professional job under enormous working pressure. So far, I haven’t even had time to answer all the comments and questions on the TorBox website and on GitHub, or the many email messages. Sorry, folks; I’m sure some users are already upset with me.

Since my holidays were canceled at the end of April, all projects related to TorBox — especially checking and fixing possible bugs, as well as updates to the operating system and core components — have been postponed to the end of July or beginning of August. However, if the work situation continues to calm down over the next few days, I’ll start answering the comments on the website and on GitHub as well as the emails addressed to me in the coming weeks.

I’m sorry for this inconvenience and hope to bring the TorBox project back up to date as soon as possible.
