Release Notes: A complete ground-up rewrite, implementation of a "darknet" mode for added security, a friendly installer, and a multitude of other improvements.
Release Notes: The user is no longer required to find other users to connect to, if this is difficult. Many bugs have been fixed, and a lot of work has been done on usability and resource consumption.
Release Notes: This release operates over UDP rather than TCP. It can transparently operate through firewalls. The core architecture and algorithm have been redesigned for simplicity and efficiency. A new and even simpler API allowing the rapid development of third party software that interacts with Freenet has been added.
Release Notes: New features include NIO technology that brings improved performance while using less CPU and system resources. Individual nodes are now more efficient, and the speed and routing of the entire network were significantly improved. Probabilistic caching was implemented, which further improves routing and lets Freenet store and find more data. Some user interface improvements were made. More improvements were made for downloads of large files. The Heisenbug and tons of other bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Very many changes, rewrites, and bugfixes were made. Almost every part of the software has seen dramatic improvements in speed, stability, and security. This is the first stable release in over 14 months. Those familiar with previous releases should be pleasantly surprised by its speed and stability.
Release Notes: Significant improvements in memory and processor usage, improved speed and load-balancing, innumerable bugfixes, both Windows and Linux versions allow convenient upgrading to latest snapshot, detailed status information available via the Web interface, and more.
Release Notes: First public release of the 0.4 Freenet development branch. This is a rewrite of much of the codebase with dramatic improvements in almost every area. There is no built in HTTP interface so FWProxy, a native C HTTP interface, has been included. This version is intended for Linux, and the included tools are precompiled for i386 Linux running glib 2.2. View the README if you have a different flavor of Linux.
