+<A NAME="gnunet0.11.0">2019-02: GNUnet 0.11.0 released</A>
+We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.0. <br>
+This is a major release after about five years of development. In
+terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large
+number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use,
+but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users.
+Also, the nascent network is tiny (~200 peers) and thus unlikely to
+provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
+information. As a result, the 0.11.0 release is still only suitable
+for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.
