GNUnet 0.18.1

GNUnet is a framework for secure and anonymous peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. Currently, the framework offers censorship-resistant file-sharing, messaging, VPN, GNS (a decentralized version of DNS), and much more. GNUnet is currently developed by a worldwide group of independent free software developers. GNUnet is a GNU package (http://www.gnu.org/).

Recent Releases

0.18.104 Nov 2022 17:09 minor bugfix: Noteworthy changes in 0.18.1 (since 0.18.0) IDENTITY: Major internal API cleanup with respect to key serialization. Removed deprecated default subsystem API. TESTING: Fix broken tests. GTK: Update with recent changes to IDENTITY.
0.18.027 Oct 2022 12:30 minor feature: Noteworthy changes in 0.18.0 (since 0.17.6) UTIL: Added enum GNUNET_ErrorCode for better error handling throughout the API. NAMESTORE: Moved namecache updates out of namestore and into zonemaster. This fixes issues from version 0.17.6 with respect to premature namestore monitor update messages and zone propagation. #7378 Added a new API for bulk imports: GNUNET_NAMESTORE_records_store2. The API can be combined with the transactional API in order to significantly improve namestore performance for lage zones. For postgres databases, storing records is around 20x faster than the old API. #7379 New database setup utility gnunet-namestore-dbtool. Databases can be initialized and reset using this new CLI. Currently, database plugins still allow to initialize databases automatically as well by setting INIT_ON_CONNECT (Default: YES). #7204 There are new APIs for zone iterations and monitoring which support filtering of records using GNUNET_GNSRECORD_Filter. By default, maintenance records such as TOMBSTONEs are filtered. #7193 New zonefile import utility gnunet-namestore-zonefile that for DNS zone files. #7396 Make use of new enum GNUNET_ErrorCode in C and REST API. #7399 Included handling of orphaned GNS records. Records are orphaned of Egos are (accidentally) deleted which makes operations on records difficult but at the same time existing records are still published. #7401, #7402 Updated the C API documentation to reflect the above changes. Updated the user documentation to reflect the above changes and included various tutorials on zone management. Updated the REST API and its documentation to reflect the above changes. ZONEMASTER: Zonemaster now uses worker threads for record signing. DHT: The specification has been updated to reflect the changes. LSD0004 BUILD: Fix mysql/mariadb detection (again). #7356 PACKAGING: Revamped the RPM package available through Fedora COPR and submitted it.
0.17.626 Sep 2022 05:48 minor feature: Noteworthy changes in 0.17.6 (since 0.17.5) NAMESTORE: Added transactional API. #7203 Removed heap storage storage plugin. FS: Fix `-s` and `-o` options not working together in gnunet-search REST: Added (optional) authentication for all rest endpoints. #5669 DOC: Doxygen is now built only if available. Sphinx is built on bootstrap. #7324 UTIL: Remove outdated test. #7361 BUILD: Remove gnurl as dependency and improve cURL detection. #5084

0.16.002 Mar 2022 19:47 major feature: We are pleased to announce the release of GNUnet 0.16.0. This is a new major release. It breaks protocol compatibility with the 0.15.x versions. Please be aware that Git master is thus henceforth (and has been for a while) INCOMPATIBLE with the 0.15.x GNUnet network, and interactions between old and new peers will result in issues. 0.15.x peers will be able to communicate with Git master or 0.16.x peers, but some services - in particular GNS - will not be compatible. In terms of usability, users should be aware that there are still a 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 and thus unlikely to provide good anonymity or extensive amounts of interesting information. As a result, the 0.16.0 release is still only suitable for early adopters with some reasonable pain tolerance. Note that due to mirror synchronization, not all links might be functional early after the release. For direct access try http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnunet/ Noteworthy changes in 0.16.0 (since 0.15.3) GNS: New record flag: CRITICAL. For records that must be processed otherwise resolution must fail. #7169 Deletion of records and reduction of expiration times is now properly handled with respect to monotonically increasing expiratin times. #7170 VPN tunnel establishment is moved out of the GNS resolver to be handled by applications (such as the DNS2GNS service). #7171 Introduces new record type REDIRECT which replaces the previous (ab)use of CNAME records. #7172 The specification has been updated to reflect the changes. LSD0001 DHT: Routes can now be signed. #4164 Changed distance metric to a more traditi
