User-agent: KMail/1.6.1

This release changes various APIs, which may result in incompatibilities with 
related tools like freeway. The peer-to-peer protocol is unchanged (and thus 
compatible), but the client-server protocol changed slightly. The new release 

* support for libextractor ≥ 0.3.0 
* plotting of statistics with gnunet-gtk (rudimentary) 
* reduced memory consumption for gnunet-download and gnunet-insert 
* gnunet-transport-check can now test external connectivity 
* gnunet-download now supports recursive parallel download of directories 
* gnunet-gtk supports recursive insertion of directories 
* indexing files is now fully network-transparent (see new option -l for 
* gnunet-download now bounds the request priorities within a range of the 
priorities currently used in requests from other peers 
* config.h is no longer included by the installed GNUnet header files 
* gnunet-insert allows pre-viewing keywords extracted with libextractor 
* a guile script to keep track of and resume gnunet-downloads was added 
* gnunet-testbed now passes basic functionality tests 
* cosmetic improvements (most visible change is probably that the gnunet-gtk 
search notebook now scrolls if there are many searches ongoing) 
* the usual minor bug fixes (memcpy instead of memmove, blocking pipe 
deadlocks select, segmentation faults) 

0.6.2 uses a slightly different scheme for file indexing (to achieve network 
transparency). You should run gnunet-check -u after recompilation and before 
starting gnunetd. Updating from versions before 0.6.1b is not supported 
(update first to 0.6.1d and then to 0.6.2 if you must).

The sources can be obtained from
and all GNU mirrors (once they synchronize).
