Miscellaneous news
------------------

Orbot users should rejoice to learn that orWall [XXX] 1.0.0 has been
released [XXX]! orWall will force selected applications through Tor while
preventing unauthorized applications to have any network access. “Any feedback
from Tor/Orbot users interest me in order to improve orWall. I think the
current release is pretty good, but as the main dev I'm maybe not that neutral
regarding this statement” joked CJ.
