  • GNUnet 0.12.0

    2019-12-20

    We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.12.0. This is a new major release. It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.11.x versions. Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth INCOMPATIBLE with the 0.11.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers will result in signature verification failures. 0.11.x peers will NOT be able to communicate with Git master or 0.12.x peers. In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number [...]

    2019-10-30

    We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.8. This is a hotfix release for 0.11.7. As always: In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use, but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users. Also, the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information. As a result, the 0.11.8 release is [...]

  • Peer DSTJ is dead, long live peer Y924

    2019-06-28

    After some issues with our infrastructure we needed to replace our bootstrapping peer. To avoid problems when connecting to GNUnet the operator of a peer needs to update its node by removing the peer ID DSTJBRRKZ8TBW3FGK6B0M5QXWT9WYNZ45H5MCV4HY7ST64Q8T9F0 from the system. Here are two strategies to find copies of the respective file:
