+  <h1>GNUnet 0.15.0 released</h1>
+  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 <b>INCOMPATIBLE</b> 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 
+  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 degree.<br/>
+  In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still
+  <b>a 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 0.15.0 release is still <b>only suitable for early adopters
+  with some reasonable pain tolerance</b>.

+<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

specific issues.
