+ <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 compatible.<br/>
+ 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 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, Daniel Golle, t3sserakt, TheJackiMonster and Martin Schanzenbach.
