Crossbar.io 17.8.1: fixes, Tor support and snaps

#1

Hi,

we've just release 17.8.1 which includes a couple of bug fixes, and a cool new feature:

Crossbar.io now natively support running over Tor!

https://www.torproject.org/

Support was added by meejah, Crossbar.io core developer, and author of

https://txtorcon.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
https://meejah.ca/

Crossbar.io supports Tor in 3 ways:

1. WAMP clients connecting to Crossbar.io over Tor cannot be tracked by the Crossbar.io router they connect to (their IP address is hidded by the Tor Onion routing network)

2. Crossbar.io can run as a Tor hidden service (on a .onion) domain. Thus, Crossbar.io itself cannot be tracked down.

3. Crossbar.io hosted components support connecting to another WAMP router over Tor

Please see here for docs:

Tor support is part of our continued efforts to make Crossbar.io cutting edge (also) in security aspects.

FWIW, I don't know of any other message broker that has builtin native Tor support like we have now;)

You can get the new release from PyPI

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/crossbar

from Docker (3 CPU archs)

https://hub.docker.com/r/crossbario/crossbar/
https://hub.docker.com/r/crossbario/crossbar-armhf/
https://hub.docker.com/r/crossbario/crossbar-aarch64/

and (also new!) as snaps (only x86-64 and armhf for now):

snaps are cool! Ubuntu Core is cool;)

Cheers,
/Tobias
