4</h3>

6<p>
7We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.1.
8<p>

10<p>
11This is a bugfix release for 0.11.0, mostly fixing minor bugs,
12improving documentation and fixing various build issues. In
13terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large
14number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use,
15but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users.
16Also, the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to
17provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
18information. As a result, the 0.11.1 release is still only suitable
19for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.

31 (gnunet-gtk and gnunet-fuse were not released again, as there were no
32 changes and the 0.11.0 versions are expected to continue to work fine
33 with gnunet-0.11.1.)

40stopped using <tt>gnunet-arm -e</tt>.

43<h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.11.1</h4>
44
45 <ul>
46 <li>gnunet-qr was rewritten in C, removing our last dependency on Python 2.x</li>
47 <li>REST and GNS proxy configuration options for address binding were added</li>
48 <li>gnunet-publish by default no longer includes creation time</li>
49 <li>Unreliable message ordering logic in CADET was fixed</li>
50 <li>Various improvements to build system and documentation</li>
51 </ul>
52 The above is just the short list, our bugtracker lists
53 <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/changelog_page.php?version_id=312">
54 14 individual issues</a> that were resolved since 0.11.0.
55
56<h4>Known Issues</h4>
57 <ul>
58 <li>There are known major design issues in the TRANSPORT, ATS and CORE subsystems
59 which will need to be addressed in the future to achieve acceptable usability,
60 performance and security.</li>
61 <li>There are known moderate implementation limitations in CADET that
62 negatively impact performance. Also CADET may unexpectedly deliver messages out-of-order.</li>
63 <li>There are known moderate design issues in FS that also impact
64 usability and performance.</li>
65 <li>There are minor implementation limitations in SET that create
66 unnecessary attack surface for availability.</li>
67 <li>The RPS subsystem remains experimental.</li>
68 <li>Some high-level tests in the test-suite fail non-deterministically due to
69 the low-level TRANSPORT issues.</li>
70 </ul>
71<p>
72In addition to this list, you may also want to consult our bug tracker
73at <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/">bugs.gnunet.org</a> which lists
74about 190 more specific issues.
