Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.4.

This is a bugfix release for 0.11.3, mostly fixing a few build issues.
In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a
large number of known open issues in particular with respect to ease of
use, but also some critical privacy issues especially for mobile users.
Also, the nascent network is tiny (about 200 peers) and thus unlikely
to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information.
As a result, the 0.11.4 release is still only suitable for early adopters
with some reasonable pain tolerance.

Download links

Note that GNUnet is now started using gnunet-arm -s. GNUnet should be
stopped using gnunet-arm -e.

Noteworthy changes

* gnunet-arm -s no longer logs into the console by default and instead into
  a logfile (in $GNUNET_HOME).
* The reclaim subsystem is no longer experimental. See also
  Further, the internal encryption scheme moved from ABE to GNS-style 
* GNUnet now depends on a more recent version of libmicrohttpd.
* The REST API now includes read-only access to the configuration.
* All manpages are now in mdoc format.
* gnunet-download-manager.scm removed.

Known Issues

* 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.
* There are known moderate implementation limitations in CADET that
 negatively impact performance. Also CADET may unexpectedly deliver
 messages out-of-order.
* There are known moderate design issues in FS that also impact
 usability and performance.
* There are minor implementation limitations in SET that create
 unnecessary attack surface for availability.
* The RPS subsystem remains experimental.
* Some high-level tests in the test-suite fail non-deterministically due
 to the low-level TRANSPORT issues.
