4 </h3>
5 <p>
6 We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.2.
7 </p>
8 <p>
9 This is a bugfix release for 0.11.0, mostly fixing minor bugs,
10 improving documentation and fixing various build issues. In
11 terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a large
12 number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of use,
13 but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users.
14 Also, the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely to
15 provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting
16 information. As a result, the 0.11.2 release is still only suitable
17 for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance.

28 <p>
29 (gnunet-gtk and gnunet-fuse were not released again, as there were no
30 changes and the 0.11.0 versions are expected to continue to work fine
31 with gnunet-0.11.2.)

38 Note that GNUnet is now started using <tt>gnunet-arm -s</tt>. GNUnet should be
39 stopped using <tt>gnunet-arm -e</tt>.

41 <h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.11.2</h4>
42 <ul>
43 <li>
44 gnunet-qr was rewritten in C, removing our last dependency on Python 2.x
45 </li>
46 <li>
47 REST and GNS proxy configuration options for address binding were added
48 </li>
49 <li>
50 gnunet-publish by default no longer includes creation time
51 </li>
52 <li>
53 Unreliable message ordering logic in CADET was fixed
54 </li>
55 <li>
56 Various improvements to build system and documentation
57 </li>
58 </ul>
59 <p>
60 The above is just the short list, our bugtracker lists
61 <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/changelog_page.php?version_id=312">
62 14 individual issues</a> that were resolved since 0.11.0.
63 </p>
64 <h4>Known Issues</h4>
65 <ul>
66 <li>
67 There are known major design issues in the TRANSPORT, ATS and CORE subsystems
68 which will need to be addressed in the future to achieve acceptable usability,
69 performance and security.
70 </li>
71 <li>
72 There are known moderate implementation limitations in CADET that
73 negatively impact performance. Also CADET may unexpectedly deliver messages out-of-order.
74 </li>
75 <li>
76 There are known moderate design issues in FS that also impact
77 usability and performance.
78 </li>
79 <li>
80 There are minor implementation limitations in SET that create
81 unnecessary attack surface for availability.
82 </li>
83 <li>
84 The RPS subsystem remains experimental.
85 </li>
86 <li>
87 Some high-level tests in the test-suite fail non-deterministically due to
88 the low-level TRANSPORT issues.
89 </li>
90 </ul>
91 <p>
92 In addition to this list, you may also want to consult our bug tracker
93 at <a href="https://bugs.gnunet.org/">bugs.gnunet.org</a> which lists
94 about 190 more specific issues.
