[GNUnet-developers] GNUnet 0.6.6b and GNUnet 0.7.0pre0 released

Subject: [GNUnet-developers] GNUnet 0.6.6b and GNUnet 0.7.0pre0 released
Date: Sun, 27 Feb 2005 23:05:21 -0500
User-agent: KMail/1.7.2

The 0.6.6b release fixes various minor and not so minor bugs, including a few 
gnunetd crashes.  0.6.6b should be fully compatible with 0.6.6a. You can 
download the code at (sources)

The 0.7.0pre0 release is a pre-preview, alpha-quality release to give 
developers, package maintainers and extremely adventurous users a chance to 
get an early peek at the upcoming 0.7.0 release.  0.7.0pre0 is NOT compatible 
with any previous version and will also NOT be protocol or data-format 
compatible with 0.7.0.  However, it is expected that it will be mostly API 
compatible (for people writing user interfaces or database backends).  
0.7.0pre0 does not have a graphical user interface, is deliberately crippled 
in terms of performance (to stress-test some of the code) and will not 
bootstrap (you will always have 0 connections, there is no hostlist).  
0.7.0pre0 requires libextractor >= 0.4.2 (it will not even compile against 
libextractor 0.4.1 or without libextractor).

It is not recommended to publish binary packages of 0.7.0pre0 without flagging 
them as experimental.  You can find the source code for 0.7.0pre0 at 

To summarize, if you want a working peer-to-peer application for file-sharing, 
use 0.6.6b.  If you want to look at the source code, help development or 
checkout where we're heading, play with 0.7.0pre0.  More information about 
both releases can be found in the news at

As always, please report problems to (bugtracking)
