Tor Project just recently released Tor Browser 9.0a5 which can be downloaded for Android users through Google Play and also from their distribution directory which includes the index files of Tor Browser 9.0a5.
The New Tor Project Browser 9.0a5 update fixes the known bug 31260 on Android devices and also includes support for aarch64 phones. This was done because of the new Google Play store requirement sent to app developers that they must make their application comply with 64-bit architectures, so the update now supports that.
Tor Browser 9.0a5 is only available for Android users in the meantime, while the alpha version for Linux, Windows PC, and macOS still remain in version 9.0a4. These platforms will be updated when there is a big update for the Tor Project.
This new Tor Browser 9.0a5 release is not stable and the only tester is recommended to download the latest release because it is not stable and it’s only in a beta version. So if you want to help test this version and it turns out to be stable on your device, then you’ll have a good user experience since the bug has been fixed unlike others using the stable version 8.5.4.
Here, you can take a look at the Full Changelog of Tor’s Project browser 9.0a5 for July 31st which was released on Google Play on 1st August 2019.
