Tor Browser 10.5a17 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory.

Note: This is an alpha release, an experimental version for users who want to help us test new features. For everyone else, we recommend downloading the latest stable release instead.

This version updates Tor to 0.4.6.5. This version is the last planned version before Tor Browser 10.5 is considered stable. Please report any bugs as soon as possible. In particular, any bugs in the new initial connect screen

Warning:
Tor Browser Alpha does not support version 2 onion services. Tor Browser (Stable) will stop supporting version 2 onion services later this year. Please see the deprecation F.A.Q. entry regarding Tor version 0.4.6. Migrate your services and update your bookmarks to version 3 onion services as soon as possible.
