[GNUnet-developers] GNUnet 0.6.0 released

From: Christian Grothoff
Subject: [GNUnet-developers] GNUnet 0.6.0 released
Date: Sun, 5 Oct 2003 22:35:17 -0500
User-agent: KMail/1.5.3

This release fixes various minor bugs and improves support for namespaces and 
in particular content updates.  Visible changes include:

* support for libgcrypt 1.1.43
* boolean queries in GTK 
* GTK automatically searches for latest version of updateable content
* GTK information window for cutting and pasting URIs
* bugfixes with respect to the build-in crypto support code ("gcry")

More significant are the "invisble" changes:
* better resource (bandwidth, CPU) allocation code
* better retransmission heuristics
* better load evaluation code (Linux only)

These changes should improve the performance of the network (but will also 
result in GNUnet using the amout of resources that GNUnet was configured to 
use.  Thus, if you configure "100% of the CPU", it may at times actually use 
100% of the CPU. If you do not want that, revise your configuration.

0.6.0 is protocol-compatible with 0.5.5 and updating from 0.5.5 should merely 
require recompilation -- and possibly changing the CPU load from 150 (old 
default) to 50 (new default) in the gnunet.conf configuration file.
