Description

I just discovered by chance that a couple of new TBB releases are available; the onion icon in the Tor Browser didn't notify me about the new release(s) because the release I am running is still listed in https://check.torproject.org/RecommendedTBBVersions (right?)

I think there should be a way to be notified of _every_ new TBB release (even if the old releases are still deemed safe to use), for people who want to always run the latest release. I found no page or RSS feed about that on the website (have I missed anything?).

The tor-announce mailing list seems to be the obvious solution: currently it only has announcements about the tor package, please announce also TBB releases there.
