There are also numerous bug fixes and improvements implemented in Tor Browser 6.5, such as the isolation of SharedWorker script requests from any first-party domains, blocking of remote JAR files by default, deprecation of SHA-1 HPKP pins, redesigned security slider, and much more.

With that done, the Tor Project already started working on Tor Browser 7.0, and a first Alpha build of the upcoming check out drive Snowflake, a new WebRTC-based pluggable transport.

While Tor Browser 7.0 remains in development, users should upgrade to Tor Browser 6.5 release.
