    Release Notes: This release unifies the routing and encryption concepts to create a more seamless and less confusing user interface, global (broadcast) distribution of public messages has been replaced by more scalable per-domain distribution, the libraries have been refactored for fully asynchronous operation, and OpenSSL now replaces RSAREF as a cryptography provider.

      Release Notes: The "cheeseball" release is the first in a series of experimental releases (culminating eventually in a new stable release) to explore a new model that integrates public-key encryption infrastructure with discussion categories to produce a system that is simple, usable, secure, and flexible. This release is primarily intended for evaluation by expert Gale users; new users should probably use the latest production release.
