Hi everyone!

This is just to let you know that thanks to some recent efforts the entire 
GNUnet HEAD codebase finally compiles again (after "just" 3 months...).  
There are still plenty of failing testcases (and more testcases to be 
written) but you should now be again able to do a SVN checkout and expect it 
to at least compile ;-).

Note that the current development version is protocol incompatible with 0.6.x 
and will not bootstrap (in other words, your peer will not be able to find 
other peers at this point) -- mostly because to the best of my knowledge 
nobody runs a hostlist server for that version (at this point).  Also, we're 
currently discussing which crypto functions to use for 0.7.0 (so far it looks 
like AES-256 will replace blowfish-128 and the number of bits in the hash 
function is going to be increased significantly, more is on drupal), so the 
current code has not yet reached the state where it will be protocol 
compatible with the next major release. Oh, and there is no GUI (yet). Use at 
your own peril.
