Description

Soon we will have new TBB packages that include Tor Launcher instead of Vidalia. To allow people to view their network map, etc. we want to create new Vidalia-only packages that will work with the new TBB packages. There are a few things we need to do:

1) Create and ship a vidalia.conf that is configured for cookie auth. so it can connect to the tor that is started by Tor Launcher.

2) Modify Vidalia so it will store its configuration near or within the application area (instead of in the user's home directory).

3) Create and deliver the Vidalia packages.

Sorry about the duplicate vidalia.conf attachement; I don't seem to have permission to delete one of them.

Reassigning to you Erinn. I think this is done, given that we have:

(and instructions in the FAQ to help Mac OS users). Please close tihs bug if you agree.
