3 <h1>GNUnet 0.19.0 released</h1>
5 We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.19.0.
6 <br/>
7 GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and
8 privacy-preserving distributed applications.
9 Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack.
10 Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to
11 include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the
12 creation of a GNU internet.
15 This is a new major release.
16 It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.18.x versions.
17 Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth (and has been for a
18 while) <b>INCOMPATIBLE</b> with
19 the 0.18.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers
20 will result in issues. 0.18.x peers will be able to communicate with Git
21 master or 0.19.x peers, but some services will not be compatible.<br/>
22 In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still
23 <b>a number of known open issues</b> in particular with respect to ease
24 of use, but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users.
25 Also, the nascent network is tiny and thus unlikely to
26 provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information.
27 As a result, the 0.19.0 release is still <b>only suitable for early adopters
28 with some reasonable pain tolerance</b>.

44<h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.19.0 (since 0.18.2)</h4>
46 <li><tt>UTIL</tt>: Moved <tt>GNUNET_BIO_MetaData</tt> handling into <tt>FS</tt>.</li>
47 <li><tt>BUILD</tt>: <tt>platform.h</tt> removed as it should not be used by
48 third parties anyway.
49 <tt>gnunet_config.h</tt> is renamed to <tt>gnunet_private_config.h</tt>
50 and the new replacement <tt>gnunet_config.h</tt> is added to provide
51 build information for components linking against/using GNUnet.</li>
52 <li><tt>UTIL</tt>: Components part of <tt>gnunet_util_lib.h</tt> must now
53 be included through <tt>gnunet_util_lib.h</tt> and through that header
54 <b>only</b>.</li>
55 <li><tt>NAMESTORE</tt>:
56 <tt>gnunet-namestore</tt> can now parse a list of records into zones
57 from <tt>stdin</tt> in new <tt>recordline</tt> format.
58 </li>
59 <li><tt>GTK</tt>: Added an identity selector to the search to accomodate for
60 previously deprecated "default" identities for subsystems.</li>
61 <li>Other: Postgres plugins implementations modernized and previous regressions
62 fixed.</li>
65A detailed list of changes can be found in the <a href="https://git.gnunet.org/gnunet.git/tree/ChangeLog">ChangeLog</a> and
66the <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/changelog_page.php?project_id=13">bug tracker</a>.
68<h4>Known Issues</h4>
70 <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>
71 <li>There are known moderate implementation limitations in CADET that negatively impact performance.</li>
72 <li>There are known moderate design issues in FS that also impact usability and performance.</li>
73 <li>There are minor implementation limitations in SET that create unnecessary attack surface for availability.</li>
74 <li>The RPS subsystem remains experimental.</li>
75 <li>Some high-level tests in the test-suite fail non-deterministically due to the low-level TRANSPORT issues.</li>
78In addition to this list, you may also want to consult our bug tracker at <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/">bugs.gnunet.org</a> which lists about 190 more specific issues.
83This release was the work of many people. The following people contributed code and were thus easily identified:
84Christian Grothoff, Tristan Schwieren, madmurphy, t3sserakt, TheJackiMonster and Martin Schanzenbach.
85<!--We are greatful for funding from <a href="https://nlnet.nl/discovery/">NGI Zero DISCOVERY</a> that
86has supported several developers over the last four years to work on the
87<a href="../gns.html">GNU Name System</a> and related subsystems.-->
