Neubot hasn’t been updated in a while, but, we decided to keep it available because there were still many active users. Now the time has come to say goodbye to the Neubot client, because too much time has passed since the latest release. We recommend all users to remove Neubot from their computers, as explained below. If you are interested in running similar tests, you should check out the project I am now working on, called OONI Probe.
In December 2017, M-Lab was notified of oddities in the Paris Traceroute data, which we then wrote about in January 2018. Upon investigation, a bug in the Paris Traceroute code was identified. The bug caused bad measurement data in 2.7% of the traceroutes since July 2016.
