The version 3 of the tor hidden services is available since a while now, version 2 will be dropped at one point (one major release away, so maybe 2 years or something ?).
According to the tor team v3 services bring a number of advantages, mainly for the admins (I understand that for instance they cannot be found by servers of the tor network, which is doable with the v2). Might be the right time to switch over ?
What are your experiences, any downside to the v3 ? I have run some just to check and could not notice anything odd.
Maybe I will switch all the def nodes to the new addresses, maybe even some vanity ones (like def2, def3 and so on, should be easy enough to generate).
Then I could forward the old addresses to the new ones for a while to propagate the new ones, before I would finally switch off the old addresses.

What do you think ?
