#29936 closed defect (fixed)

Broken redirect on https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/RecommendedTBBVersions

Description

https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/RecommendedTBBVersions currently redirects to a nonexistent location. This URL is used by Whonix's update-torbrowser script to discover versions of Tor Browser (it does not follow redirects by default, anyway).

The correct location seems to be https://2019.www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/RecommendedTBBVersions.

i think this is a website-specific thing, and that it might also already have a fix in progress. in any case I believe hiro might have better answers than tpa. :)

I don't know why there is a redirect to 2019.www.torproject.org, as the URL should be working on the new website.

I removed the redirect in commits 28fa9efc6ed72880eb13625aee4e434c4dcfae83 and 045f01f70c85dee582674fe5381fb161d91e832b.

It's back online but the version format changed.

  [
"8.0.8",
"8.0.8-MacOS",
"8.0.8-Linux",
"8.0.8-Windows",
"8.5a10",
"8.5a10-MacOS",
"8.5a10-Linux",
"8.5a10-Windows"
]

Uses " rather than " now.

Was this intended?

Still a change from before.

https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/RecommendedTBBVersions is now a redirect to https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser/RecommendedTBBVersions/. (Added a trailing /.)

So update-torbrowser script still broken. Is this change compatible with Tor Browser? Either way, would be good if you could kindly revert to previous state.

Replying to adrelanos:

It's back online but the version format changed.

I opened #29951 for that.
