+  <h1>GNUnet 0.12.2 released</h1>
+  We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.12.2.
+  This is a new minor release.
+  In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still
+  <b>a large number of known open issues</b> 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 0.12.2 release is still <b>only suitable for early adopters
+  with some reasonable pain tolerance</b>.
+<h4>Download links</h4>

+  The GPG key used to sign is: 
+  Note that due to mirror synchronization, not all links might be functional
+  early after the release. For direct access try
+  <a href="";></a>
+<h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.12.2 (since 0.12.1)</h4>
+  <li>
+    <tt>GNS</tt>: Resolver clients are now able to specify a recursion depth 
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    <tt>TRANSPORT/TNG</tt>: The transport rewrite (aka TNG) is underway and
+    various transport components have been worked on, including TCP, UDP and 
+    communicators.
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    <tt>UTIL</tt>: The cryprography changes introduced in 0.12.0 broke ECDSA
+      ECDH and consequently other components. The offending ECDSA key 
+      was dropped.
+  </li>
+<h4>Known Issues</h4>
+  <li>There are known major design issues in the TRANSPORT, ATS and CORE 
subsystems which will need to be addressed in the future to achieve acceptable 
usability, performance and security.</li>
+  <li>There are known moderate implementation limitations in CADET that 
negatively impact performance.</li>
+  <li>There are known moderate design issues in FS that also impact usability 
and performance.</li>
+  <li>There are minor implementation limitations in SET that create 
unnecessary attack surface for availability.</li>
+  <li>The RPS subsystem remains experimental.</li>
+  <li>Some high-level tests in the test-suite fail non-deterministically due 
to the low-level TRANSPORT issues.</li>
+  In addition to this list, you may also want to consult our bug tracker at <a 
href="";></a> which lists about 190 more 
specific issues.
+  This release was the work of many people. The following people contributed 
code and were thus easily identified:
+  Christian Grothoff, Florian Dold, Christian Ulrich, dvn, lynx and Martin
