+ <h1>GNUnet 0.16.0 released</h1>
+ We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.16.0.
+ This is a new major release. It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.15.x versions.
+ Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth (and has been for a
+ while) <b>INCOMPATIBLE</b> with
+ the 0.15.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers
+ will result in issues. 0.15.x peers will be able to communicate with Git
+ master or 0.16.x peers, but some services - in particular GNS - will not be compatible.<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 0.16.0 release is still <b>only suitable for early adopters
+ with some reasonable pain tolerance</b>.

+<h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.16.0 (since 0.15.3)</h4>
+ <li><tt>GNS</tt>:
+ <ul>
+ <li>New record flag: CRITICAL. For records that must be processed otherwise resolution must fail. <a href="">#7169</a></li>
+ <li>Deletion of records and reduction of expiration times is now properly handled with respect to monotonically increasing expiratin times. <a href="">#7170</a></li>
+ <li>VPN tunnel establishment is moved out of the GNS resolver to be handled by applications (such as the DNS2GNS service). <a href="">#7171</a></li>
+ <li>Introduces new record type REDIRECT which replaces the previous (ab)use of CNAME records. <a href="">#7172</a></li>
+ <li>The specification has been updated to reflect the changes. <a href="">LSD0001</a></li>
+ </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li><tt>DHT</tt>:
+ <ul>
+ <li>Routes can now be signed. <a href="">#4164</a></li>
+ <li>Changed distance metric to a more traditional XOR. <a href="">#7136</a></li>
+ <li>The specification has been updated to reflect the changes. <a href="">LSD0004</a></li>
+ </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li><tt>RECLAIM</tt>: Added some preliminary support for Decentralized Identifier (DID) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs).</li>
+ <li><tt>UTIL</tt>: Add Clause-Schnorr blind signatures. For use in <a href="">Taler</a>.</li>
+ <li><tt>BUILD</tt>: Building from git now requires <tt>recutils</tt>. The bootstrap will generate up-to-date header files from <a href="">GANA</a>.</li>
+ A detailed list of changes can be found in the <a href="">ChangeLog</a> and
+ the <a href="">bug tracker</a>.
+<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, Tristan Schwieren, Alessio Vanni, Florian Dold, Thien-Thi Nguyen, t3sserakt, Lucien Heuzeveldt, Gian Demarmels, madmurphy, TheJackiMonster and Martin Schanzenbach.
