Can not add URLs in bug-report so I have rewritten all but the first of each URL with AAA, BBB.

As-MacBook-Pro:~ a$ curl https://blog.torproject.org/tor-browser-756-released
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="UTF-8" />
        <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-756" />

This makes it impossibel to view the release information (both using Tor and Safari gives the same result).

Im having the same issue, when using Safari.

Hmm, I am not sure what is happening.

The post started as tor-browser-756-released, was renamed to new-release-tor-browser-756 then back to tor-browser-756-released. It seems some redirects from the old urls are automatically added, and now we have a loop.

To try to fix it, I added a - at the end, and the new URL is now working:

However the index page still points to the old url (when not logged), but I think it will be fixed when the cache expire.
