Orbot v13 release candidate 1 is available for direct download:

APK: https://guardianproject.info/releases/Orbot-v13.0.0-RC1.apk
sig: https://guardianproject.info/releases/Orbot-v13.0.0-RC1.apk.asc

and later today, our F-Droid repo and Google Play.

As mentioned before, this release is built on Tor, OpenSSL
1.0.1e, and XTables v1.4.21... all the latest bling across the board.
In addition, some important fixes to the Orbot service, to ensure it
remains running in the background, and the active notification keeps
working, as well. Finally, we've changed the way the native binaries
are installed, making it more reliable and clean across devices.

This has been tested on devices ranging from an old Samsung Galaxy S
running 2.3.6 to a Galaxy Note 3 on Android 4.3 with KNOX, as well as
CM10 and some other OS variants.

We will do not have X86 or MIPS binaries built-in, but are considering
adding them, as there seem to be a huge amount of Android X86 devices
coming out of CES this year!
