GNUnet 0.11.8 released

From: ng0
Subject: GNUnet 0.11.8 released
Date: Wed, 30 Oct 2019 11:49:35 +0000

We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.11.8.

This is a bugfix release for 0.11.7, fixing a couple of minor build-system
related bugs introduced in the 0.11.7 release.
No functional changes were made.
As always: 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 0.11.8 release is still only suitable for early adopters
with some reasonable pain tolerance.

gnunet-fuse and gnunet-gtk were not released again,
as there were no changes and the
most recent versions are expected to continue to work fine with
gnunet-0.11.8. The GPG key used to sign this time is:

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.
- 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.
