- [[*Onion Circuits*|doc/anonymous_internet/Tor_status]] to display a list of the current Tor circuits and connections.

data loss when shutting down. ([[!tails_ticket 11147]])
- Update *Tor Browser* to 5.5.3.
- Improve Japanese-style glyph display.
- Upgrade *I2P* to [0.9.24](https://geti2p.net/en/blog/post/2016/01/27/0.9.24-Release).
