+Changes in version 0.4.2.6 - 2020-01-30
+  This is the second stable release in the 0.4.2.x series. It backports
+  several bugfixes from 0.4.3.1-alpha, including some that had affected
+  the Linux seccomp2 sandbox or Windows services. If you're running with
+  one of those configurations, you'll probably want to upgrade;
+  otherwise, you should be fine with 0.4.2.5.
+
+  o Major bugfixes (linux seccomp sandbox, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Correct how we use libseccomp. Particularly, stop assuming that
+      rules are applied in a particular order or that more rules are
+      processed after the first match. Neither is the case! In
+      libseccomp <2.4.0 this lead to some rules having no effect.
+      libseccomp 2.4.0 changed how rules are generated, leading to a
+      different ordering, which in turn led to a fatal crash during
+      startup. Fixes bug 29819; bugfix on 0.2.5.1-alpha. Patch by
+      Peter Gerber.
+    - Fix crash when reloading logging configuration while the
+      experimental sandbox is enabled. Fixes bug 32841; bugfix on
+      0.4.1.7. Patch by Peter Gerber.
+
+  o Minor bugfixes (correctness checks, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Use GCC/Clang's printf-checking feature to make sure that
+      tor_assertf() arguments are correctly typed. Fixes bug 32765;
+      bugfix on 0.4.1.1-alpha.
+
+  o Minor bugfixes (logging, crash, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Avoid a possible crash when trying to log a (fatal) assertion
+      failure about mismatched magic numbers in configuration objects.
+      Fixes bug 32771; bugfix on 0.4.2.1-alpha.
+
+  o Minor bugfixes (testing, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - When TOR_DISABLE_PRACTRACKER is set, do not apply it to the
+      test_practracker.sh script. Doing so caused a test failure. Fixes
+      bug 32705; bugfix on 0.4.2.1-alpha.
+    - When TOR_DISABLE_PRACTRACKER is set, log a notice to stderr when
+      skipping practracker checks. Fixes bug 32705; bugfix
+      on 0.4.2.1-alpha.
+
+  o Minor bugfixes (windows service, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Initialize the publish/subscribe system when running as a windows
+      service. Fixes bug 32778; bugfix on 0.4.1.1-alpha.
+
+  o Testing (backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Turn off Tor's Sandbox in Chutney jobs, and run those jobs on
+      Ubuntu Bionic. Turning off the Sandbox is a work-around, until we
+      fix the sandbox errors in 32722. Closes ticket 32240.
+    - Re-enable the Travis CI macOS Chutney build, but don't let it
+      prevent the Travis job from finishing. (The Travis macOS jobs are
+      slow, so we don't want to have it delay the whole CI process.)
+      Closes ticket 32629.
+
+  o Testing (continuous integration, backport from 0.4.3.1-alpha):
+    - Use zstd in our Travis Linux builds. Closes ticket 32242.
