Description

Someone on #tor suggested that each software download should include info on what has been fixed or changed for this release. For example, on 2013-08-10, https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html could include the information from https://blog.torproject.org/blog/new-tor-browser-bundles-firefox-1708esr. This would be in line with other projects which link to NEWS on the download page (e.g. http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/#Releases ) and is an even better idea for Tor as end-users may not read the blog or be aware of what vulnerabilities new releases are fixing.

arma said "<arma> double bonus points if you also write a patch for the download-easy.wml file :)" but I currently lack those skillz.

hrm. This is tricky to do automatically, because those updates get published as blog posts. I wonder what a good (static) link would be for this.

Here's a crazy thought: what if we re-used the perl goo from the frontpage that fetches blog post summarizes and links, but point it to a blog feed for only https://blog.torproject.org/category/tags/tbb ?

I went with the much simpler option to link to the tbb blog post category from the website. I think that's enough
