          <p>We now have a first version of the Taler wallet for Firefox.
             For now, a development build of Firefox is required.
             Installation instructions are on the <a href="/wallet">Wallet page</a>.</p>

          <h2>9-2016: Taler Web Payments paper published</h2>
          <p>We just finished the camera-ready version of our paper on how to use Taler
             for Web payments.  This paper does not discuss the cryptography behind
             Taler, but focuses on the practical aspects of how the wallet and the merchants
             interact over the Web.  Hence, this paper should be a good read for
             anyone who wants to integrate Taler support with their Web site.
            We have posted the paper <a href="https://gnunet.org/taler2016space">here</a>.</p>

          <h2>8-2016: Taler Systems S.A. created</h2>
          <p>We now have a business entity for Taler.  Potential investors may
            contact the executive team at <a href="mailto:clevel@taler.net">clevel@taler.net</a>.</p>

          <h2>6-2016: GNU Taler 0.0.0 released</h2>
          <p>We have reached our first big milestone, the 0.0.0 release!
             The release includes implementations of a bank, exchange, merchant and wallet
             and is available on the GNU FTP mirrors.
             <br>
             While the exchange implements the
             complete protocol, the implementations of merchant and wallet are both
             fundamentally incomplete and still lack key features, including important
             error handling. GNU Taler still lacks an implementation of an auditor or
             logic for integration with "real" banks.
             Thus, this release should not yet be used for actual financial
             transactions.
             <br>
             That said, you can already setup your own functional payment system
             and run your own toy currency -- or just try out the demo using
             the Chrome/Chromium browser at <a href="https://demo.taler.net/">demo.taler.net</a>.

          <p>We finally have a first simple demo for Taler online. The Firefox-variant
             still needs some love, but you can start to try out the demo using
             the Chrome/Chromium browser at <a href="https://demo.taler.net/">demo.taler.net</a>.
