+ <h1>GNUnet 0.19.0 released</h1>
+ We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.19.0.
+ <br/>
+ GNUnet is an alternative network stack for building secure, decentralized and
+ privacy-preserving distributed applications.
+ Our goal is to replace the old insecure Internet protocol stack.
+ Starting from an application for secure publication of files, it has grown to
+ include all kinds of basic protocol components and applications towards the
+ creation of a GNU internet.
+ This is a new major release.
+ It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.18.x versions.
+ Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth (and has been for a
+ while) <b>INCOMPATIBLE</b> with
+ the 0.18.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers
+ will result in issues. 0.18.x peers will be able to communicate with Git
+ master or 0.19.x peers, but some services 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 0.19.0 release is still <b>only suitable for early adopters
+ with some reasonable pain tolerance</b>.

+<h4>Noteworthy changes in 0.19.0 (since 0.18.2)</h4>
+ <li><tt>UTIL</tt>: Moved <tt>GNUNET_BIO_MetaData</tt> handling into <tt>FS</tt>.</li>
+ <li><tt>BUILD</tt>: <tt>platform.h</tt> removed as it should not be used by
+ third parties anyway.
+ <tt>gnunet_config.h</tt> is renamed to <tt>gnunet_private_config.h</tt>
+ and the new replacement <tt>gnunet_config.h</tt> is added to provide
+ build information for components linking against/using GNUnet.</li>
+ <li><tt>UTIL</tt>: Components part of <tt>gnunet_util_lib.h</tt> must now
+ be included through <tt>gnunet_util_lib.h</tt> and through that header
+ <b>only</b>.</li>
+ <li><tt>NAMESTORE</tt>:
+ <tt>gnunet-namestore</tt> can now parse a list of records into zones
+ from <tt>stdin</tt> in new <tt>recordline</tt> format.
+ </li>
+ <li><tt>GTK</tt>: Added an identity selector to the search to accomodate for
+ previously deprecated "default" identities for subsystems.</li>
+ <li>Other: Postgres plugins implementations modernized and previous regressions
+ fixed.</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, madmurphy, t3sserakt, TheJackiMonster and Martin Schanzenbach.
+<!--We are greatful for funding from <a href="">NGI Zero DISCOVERY</a> that
+has supported several developers over the last four years to work on the
+<a href="../gns.html">GNU Name System</a> and related subsystems.-->
