Description

In china mainland, the tor nodes are blocked many years ago. But recently, I found I can connect to tor without using Meek bridge.
What's happening? It is related to tor changes(is New technology created?) or the network environment changes in China mainland(are the Nodes released)?

If not above, what's happening?

Not sure, but I guess the anticensorship team is curious about this data point or might even know what is going on.

There is another ticket. <https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/29279#comment:23>

As of June 2019, the GFW is not blocking obfs4. The tor project realized it.
Now tor can directly connect without using bridge. it's interesting.
