You can download the code from all GNU mirrors or from the URLs given below.  
Note that you need GNU's libextractor 0.5.18. (to be published soon) (to be published soon)

The main change for 0.7.2 is the addition of support for non-anonymous 
downloads using direct connections and a distributed hash table (DHT). 

Most of the smaller changes made for 0.7.2 have focused on adding automatic 
testcases and improving stability and correctness. Furthermore, all features 
that were removed from gnunet-gtk as part of the major changes for the 0.7.0 
release have been added back. Developers should note that there were some 
minor API changes and extensions.

Noteworthy improvements since GNUnet 0.7.1 include:
* Added non-anonymous file-sharing (anonymity-level zero) using DHT
* Added tracking of history of our interaction with a particular URI 
* Added heuristic for better packing of gnunet-directories
* Added support for namespaces to gnunet-gtk 
* Added peer tab showing gnunet-peer-info-like information in gnunet-gtk 
* Added support for IO load detection
* Enabled abortion of gnunet-peer-info with CTRL-C
* Added additional statistics for gnunet-gtk while using less CPU 
* Fixed issues with the handling of certain command-line options (-L, -H)
* Fixed various bugs causing problems with peers not connecting properly
* Fixed bug in routing algorithm that reduced its effectiveness
* Fixed handling of -d option by gnunet-download
* Fixed issues with paths for gettext (internationalization) in gnunet-gtk 
* Fixed (rare) deadlock during download shutdown sequence 
* Fixed (rare) deadlock in gnunet-gtk
* Fixed many other minor bugs 

Updating should be trivial. GNUnet 0.7.2 peers should be able to communicate 
with 0.7.1-peers (but not with 0.7.0 peers). The compatibility transport, 
tcp_old, is no longer supported (you must update your configuration file and 
remove it).  Please see UPDATING for details.

More information about GNUnet including how to use it, installation, other 
dependencies, mailinglists, a bug database and a forum can be found at

Thanks for your attention
