GNUnet 0.15.0 released
GNUnet 0.15.0 released
Sun, 8 Aug 2021 17:09:13 +0000
We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.15.0.
This is a new major release. It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.14.x
versions. Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth INCOMPATIBLE with
the 0.14.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers will
result in issues. 0.14.x peers will be able to communicate with Git master or
0.14.x peers, but some services - in particular GNS - will not be compatible.
The MESSENGER service goes out of experimental to be used by libraries and
applications as dependency. It handles decentralized messaging in flexible
groups by using the CADET service and messages can be signed with your ego from
the IDENTITY service. The service is still in an early stage, so its protocol
(currently version 0.1) will likely adapt or change in future releases to some
In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a 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 and thus unlikely to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of
interesting information. As a result, the 0.15.0 release is still only suitable
for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.
