 Freenet 0.7.5 build 1345 is now available, it will be mandatory on
 Thursday, please upgrade ASAP. This is just a small bugfix for a problem
 pointed out on FMS (a NullPointerException). Eleriseth even provided a
 partial fix, which has been merged along with some related fixes. IMHO this
 only happens if a peer gets to too-high ping times *before* it is first
 backed off, so I doubt it's the cause of the problems we've been having
 lately (most notably it taking *ages* to bootstrap a new node onto opennet),
 but it's still important to fix it.


Are you sure its wise to give people so little time to upgrade for what
appears to be a minor fix?

 Why should I allow JS for completely anonymous posted freesites?


Nobody is advocating that, Freenet filters out Javascript and many other
things that are downloaded from freesites.

It would be really helpful if people could spend a little time to understand
what is being debated before they start ranting.

 Try again. I subscribed to this list lastMay? I have received
 perhaps a half dozen messages since then until this last week. Suddenly
 I have 50 messages some dating back to June and July. The first message
 I received in the bunch was the straw poll on javascript. Since then I
 have carefully read every message I have received. There has been very
 little discussion as to why js is needed, or I am missing a bunch of
 messages, or the discussion seriously needs to be brought down to a
 level that I can understand. So don't tell me to understand before I
 start ranting if you are not part of the solution of helping me
 understand. Until I understand, my vote still stands at no.


And this is the problem.  If you admit that you don't understand the issues
then why express any opinion at all until you do?

Here it is:

- Our UI sucks
- Our UI framework sucks
- We need a new UI framework that will make it easy for us to create a
decent looking UI
- Of the options available, GWT seems like the best one because:
- it has great free dev tools
- its pure Java
- it makes it easy for non-designers to create decent looking UIs
because all the widgets are pre-designed
- We are already using parts of GWT in the codebase.

Rather than everyone just poking holes in every suggestion, why not suggest
alternatives?  Oh, and if it involves creating a powerful UI which
falls-back gracefully if there is no Javascript, please consider how much
additional work would be required to do this, and how exactly it is to be
achieved.

 Because as I began learning about internet safety and security, js has
 been at the top of the list as the devil in disguise. My vote was, No,
 but plead your case as to why it's needed and ask again.


And my vote is to ignore the votes of people who can't be bothered to inform
themselves before expressing an opinion on a subject.

What?!? You want to add js so that we can have a cutesy interface?!?


No, a usable interface.


 Tell me how js is going to improve the functionality.


It will improve functionality by making Freenet easier for newbies to use
it.


 Tell me how it's
 going to fix the backed off problem.


It won't, that's not its purpose.


 Tell me how it will keep 1/4 of
 my files from having to be re-downloaded because of an internal error.


It won't, that's not its purpose.


 Tell me how it's going to help me get more than a 100kB/s throughput.

 Oh god no. Make sure it's easy to disable this garbage for people who
 still value control over their web pages (to read, parse, etc). Dillo
 doesn't (and hopefully won't) support javascript.


The new web UI (which is still a long-way off) will be in-addition to
FProxy, and is intended to only serve the needs of casual Freenet users.
 I expect that we'll keep FProxy running on its current port for those that
prefer it.

So anti-Javascript luddites like you will be free to remain in the dark ages

 Obviously it asks you, but after that does the node use the correct
 language? And does it pick up the system locale in the first place? IIRC the
 language selection isn't very obvious?

Matthew for only another 25 days.  As many of you are aware, Matthew's
contribution to development is fundamental, and it would be a serious blow
to the project if we could no-longer pay him.

 It looks like a permission problem. Where are you trying to install the
 program ? You should check that your user as write and execute rights on
 the folder you specified.

That is not true.  Freenet 0.7 is designed to form one global  
network, not multiple independent networks consisting of small groups.

Yes, but I wouldn't lecture those who had actually experienced it,  
and I think you will find Freenet 0.7 a somewhat more pleasant  
experience than the first world war.

[freenet-support] Plan for 0.7a release - your help needed

2006-04-03 Thread Ian Clarke
Ok, the announcement text is looking good, but still needs more  
feedback, so please check it out:


  http://wiki.freenetproject.org/ZeroPointSevenAnnouncementDraft

The plan is to send this to the announcement mailing list, and add it  
to the news section of the website, probably mid-afternoon PST.


We also need installation to be as easy as possible, so if you  
haven't already tried 0.7 - please visit this web page:


  http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=download-new

And let us know about any problems you encounter, or anything you  
feel could be vague, unclear, or counter-intuitive.

[freenet-support] Disk cache

I don't think disk drives wear out that quickly, and lots of software
writes to the disk constantly.  That being said, the default log level
in testnet Freenet is set to MINOR, which will result in lots of
logging.  If you aren't running a testnet node, and you are concerned
about this, you may want to set this to NORMAL, although this will
make your bug reports less useful to us.

Your operating system should take care of this, it isn't really
something within the realm of what Freenet can or should address.

We have been fortunate enough to generate just about enough to pay  
for Matthew for the past few years, but donations have been tailing  
off as we haven't put out any new releases in quite a while due to  
our work on 0.7, and the financial situation is actually quite  
precarious just now.

Our hope is that with the 0.7 alpha release we will get some  
donations, but if anyone can contribute, now would really be the time  
(as there can be no guarantee that the 0.7 alpha release will  
generate the level of publicity we have seen for previous releases).

The above are serious errors in your code and put Freenet into the  
broken file for good. Every Java app I've installed works with no

I just filed bug #8:

We should distribute files from emu now that sourceforge is  
deliberately limiting the speed of download from their web servers.

To avoid any bandwidth crunch, we should link through Coral Cache  
(see http://coralcdn.com/).

The problem isn't lack of available bandwidth, Sourceforge has  
plenty, it is that they deliberately slow down downloads from their  
web servers as they want people to use their file release system.

We need to investigate whether we can use this in an automated way,  
if not, we can probably just distribute from our own server for the  
time being.

You should be able to remove Freenet through the Add/Remove Programs  
part of the Control Panel, Freenet will be one of the items listed  
there.

A more crude way to remove it would be to delete the C:\Program Files

better.

Pre-mix routing will be introduced after 0.7, but will not be  
supported in 0.7.0 (the first release in the 0.7 series).  It will  
likely be implemented once the initial 0.7 releases are stable.

Yeah, but then they can't be part of the darknet.  You are saying to  
people: "I'm sorry, you can only connect to people you trust, you  
aren't allowed to connect to strangers".  If the user wants to  
connect to strangers, and those strangers are happy to connect to  
them, then it is futile for us to try to prevent it.

Perhaps according to your definition of "darknet" we won't, but my  
definition of "darknet" includes the choice to connect to strangers  
if the user is willing to take that risk.

What you don't seem to realise is that we don't get to choose whether  
or not people will connect to each-other indiscriminately, many  
people will regardless of what we say to them.  We will see "Freenet  
matchmaking" websites set up that will probably ruin the network's  
topology as they will have no regard for the requirements of a small  
world network.

The best option is to offer people the choice, and if they want an  
open node, then at least we can ensure that it won't screw up the  
small world topology.

Sure, we might not know for sure whether it could have worked in a  
"pure" trusted-link network, but who cares so long as it works in a  
realistic scenario which is a mixture of open and dark nodes?

Ian.

So you propose to force people to run darknet nodes even though they

Well, if that would truly be the topology then the alternative is

I see no reason for there to be a separate opennet and darknet.  We  
have open nodes and dark nodes within a single network.

Having two separate networks will simply confuse our userbase and  
reduce the utility of the network for everyone.

There would be no real reason to grow the darknet, that's the
point. If
the only way to connect (easily) is by growing the darknet, it will
grow.



So you propose to force people to run darknet nodes even though they
might be quite satisfied to use the opennet?  I don't believe in
forcing users to do things against their will.



Eh? I don't understand. If they want to use the opennet, they can use
the opennet.


Yeah, but then they can't be part of the darknet.  You are saying to  
people: I'm sorry, you can only connect to people you trust, you  
aren't allowed to connect to strangers.  If the user wants to  
connect to strangers, and those strangers are happy to connect to  
them, then it is futile for us to try to prevent it.



The result of which is that it does not tell
us anything about the viability of the global darknet. And WHEN,
not if,
the opennet is compromized, there is no global darknet. Just a few
disconnected nodes.


If you truly believe that dark nodes would be in small isolated
pockets, then what makes you believe that a pure-darknet is

all without open nodes to glue it together?



I don't believe people would make the effort to grow the darknet if
they
are connected by open nodes. And furthermore, if they are  
connected by

open nodes, it tells us nothing whatsoever about the viability of a
fully dark network.



People get a choice.  If people chose to leave their nodes open, then
so be it.  It isn't our place to force people to do one thing or the
other.


In which case the whole experiment will have been totally  
pointless, and

there will be NOTHING to build on in the future, because we won't have
actually prototyped the globally scalable darknet.


Perhaps according to your definition of darknet we won't, but my  
definition of darknet includes the choice to connect to strangers  
if the user is willing to take that risk.


What you don't seem to realise is that we don't get to choose whether  
or not people will connect to each-other indiscriminately, many  
people will regardless of what we say to them.  We will see Freenet  
matchmaking websites set up that will probably ruin the network's  
topology as they will have no regard for the requirements of a small  
world network.


The best option is to offer people the choice, and if they want an  
open node, then at least we can ensure that it won't screw up the  
small world topology.


Sure, we might not know for sure whether it could have worked in a  
pure trusted-link network, but who cares so long as it works in a  
realistic scenario which is a mixture of open and dark nodes?

Re: [freenet-support] Opera 8 and Anonyminity warning

2005-06-14 Thread Ian Clarke

Here is the response I sent separately:

I didn't discover the Opera problem, but the general issue is that  
Freenet can't send data to a web browser unless it knows what the web  
browser will do with it, otherwise the web browser could do something  
that would compromise your anonymity (such as connect to a remote web  
server without going through Freenet).  For this reason Freenet  
limits the mime-types that can be sent to the browser.


Internet Explorer, and apparently Opera attempt to guess mime-types  
for some types of data in a way that Freenet can't reasonably  
anticipate, and thus for a given object Freenet may not be able to  
determine whether it is safe to send it to the browser.


If Opera no-longer does this, or if there is some reasonable way to  
guarantee that Opera will treat a given piece of data as the mime- 
type specified in the HTTP headers (without Freenet needing to do an  
unreasonable analysis of the data itself), then this information is  
no-longer correct and we will update Freenet accordingly.

 Now, may I ask you if you feel I have helped/supported you with my

I wasn't aware that you were ever in the project to be kicked out of 
it (whatever being in the project means).  Very few people have 
@freenetproject.org email addresses, you got one because you asked for 
it and because you said it would help you raise donations for the 
project.

So far as I can see you no longer even use it, so I don't see why you 
are whining about losing something that many people who have made a 
much more significant contribution to the project than you have never 
even asked for.

 because of my
first post to you. It seems he did not think it belonged in support, 
but ah,
we all know it has more to do with him having difficulties to cope 
with the
critisism I  give on the current performance and developmentprocess of
Freenet. Which is often sarcastic, true, but he should have the 
maturity to
keep his personal feelings of being annoyed/agitated out of the 
project.
I have no problem whatsoever with criticism, but I do have a problem 
when it is expressed in a sarcastic and personal manner.  You have a 
right to say whatever you want, but I have a right not to endorse your 
opinions by giving you a project email address that you don't need and 
don't use.

He asks me why that I should explain the *support* mailing list is
consistent with you having an email address that implies you are a 
part of
this project but at the same time says I shouldn't bother because all 
what
I send goes directly into the bin anyhow - again not very mature.
There is nothing mature or immature about my decision to ignore you, it 
is my personal preference based on the observation that most of what 
you say isn't very useful, and that it is generally expressed with 
extremely poor spelling and without bothering to follow even the most 
rudimentary email conventions.

 For a
libertarian as he claims to be, this is rather spicious reasoning.
When did I claim to be a libertarian, how is my not endorsing your 
emails in any way anti-libertarian, and what does spicious mean?

1)First of all, being part of the project isn't just a matter of 
making a
post on the correct list, or not. (or, the real reason: being 
sarcastic and
critical of Freenet or not).
No, being a part of this or any project is about constructive 
criticism, but not sarcastic and personal criticism directed at those 
who have contributed far more to the project than you have.

2)Being part of a project is, obviously, also derived from whether you 
do
something for the project or not. So what did I do for the project? I 
have
sought and found sponsors,
Yes you have, and I am grateful to those sponsors, and to you for 
finding them, but note that the total amount raised was less than 
numerous individual donations the project has received.  This was also 
quite some time ago.

3)The main premise, that the post in question was not helpful or 
supportive,
is debatable. Clearly Ian doesn't think so, but that doesn't mean the 
newbie
that I responded to thinks the same. It's rather subjective, but it 
wasn't
Ian asking support, so he should not presume to know whether it was or 
not.
(but again, we all know the real reason).
The portion of your comment which the poster found to be helpful was 
not the portion that I objected to.  Please explain what this means and 
its relevance on a mailing list intended to help new users learn how to 
use Freenet.  Also, please explain what you are implying by suggesting 
that he ask Matthew and I.

Frustrating? Can't be! It has much improved, *much* I say. If you don't
believe me, ask toad and Ian!Even the simulations say so! We have NIO 
and
NGR now, so things definately have improved for noobs like you, 
whatever you
may think about it yourself

If I were to react so childish, I would have to say: well, if I'm not 
part
of the project anymore, why should I keep freenethelp up, why 
shouldn't I
revert all my changes to the website back, why should I do anything 
else?
But such things are childish tit-for-tat reasonings, and I am not 
going for
such a thing.
Yes, you are never childish...

I've been getting TFE fine, but I haven't been able to load FIND for  
almost
a
week.  The lists are pretty silent lately, as well.  Conspiracy  
theory,
anyone?

No, the explanation is simply this, that many active (meaning formerly
inserting/posting) Freenetters have gone over to i2p. Not only do you  
see
icons such as thetower guy there, but a lot of other ex-freenetters,  
some of
which still didn't leave Freenet completely (like me).

I've been pointing that out in the irc chan too, but I got slapped on  
the
wrist for it. aparently, saying the obvious is 'not done'. For the  
first
time, Freenet has some serious competition, and it's not performing  
well,
speaking in a darwinian sense. As yet, it doesn't seem to affect  
finances
that much, but once you start to lose interest and people go to  
another
(promising) I2P, that can't be far away.

I have said many times before that there is a lack of progress, or at  
least
a sense of progress, certainly for the ordinary freenet user (and, in  
fact,
for the end-user there HAS been little progress). The development  
cycle of
Freenet is NOT normal, not even for a new-technology-beta. It seems  
that
Freenet is performing better...but  compared to what? To how it was a  
year
ago? No doubt, back then it was totally bork. It's a pitty we don't  
have
performance testing logs, but I suspect that it's now about as good  
as it
was 2 years ago...hmmm. Yesyes, I know a lot of technological goodies  
have
been added, but that doesn't interest Joe Doe: he just wants it to  
work, and
good. That means, primarely; finding something he wants, and d/l it  
fast,
and, seen the fact it's freenet, in a safe manner.

Freenet doesn't do all that.
Now, granted, though I have been pleasantly surprised, neither does  
I2P, as
yet. But the difference is, they are working 4 months on it, and have  
come a
long way and  they *are*  improving dramatically. With that pace they  
are
gaining support rapidly, as already can be seen (and that's why it has
suddenly become more quiet on the posts, and Freesites are less and  
less
being updated). The moment the DHT is ready, Freenet will not offer  
anything
en plus, practically speaking.

Now, I'm ambigous about this all. In theory, competition is a good
thing...only it doesn't seem to have any impact, here. It's mostly  
being
ignored, and when someone points it out, it's not welcomed.  
Furthermore, I
don't think two main anonymity projects can be maintained by the OSS  
crowd,
at least not the way it is done now. what is taken by one is at the  
loss of
the other one, and vice versa, me thinks.

That's why, in a former post, I tried to stimulate both parties to  
try to
merge their technology and forces...but to no apparent avail. Is it  
that
difficult to see that both projects have specific advantages, that  
would or
at least could benefit both? Geez. Freenet has potential, it still  
has, but
it just lays there as a dead horse, and i2p is has great ease-to-use
promise, but still has to prove some basic things, like being able to  
scale
(not that Freenet is out of the loop with that one neither).

Anyways, when I pointed this out, I

If files are your thing, you might do better to check out I2P:
http://www.i2p.net/
I2P is an interesting and worthwhile project, but the Freenet support 
mailing list is not the appropriate place to advertise it, particularly 
when the advertisement is justified by debatable claims.

Freenet is not well suited to sharing lots of files.  There's a 
BitTorrent
set-up in the works for I2P as well.
I disagree, with FEC Freenet is, or should be, well suited to 
distribution of large files - in the past I have seen 90kb/sec download 
rates on large files, which is 3-4 times faster than I typically get 
with BitTorrent, although I haven't tried a large file download off 
Freenet in recent months.

I don't know what the status of I2P is, and this support list is not 
the place for advocacy anyway (for Freenet or I2P), but last I heard I 
wasn't aware that it had any distributed caching functionality.  
Freenet has had such functionality for years.

When you all fire up your nodes you know there is a very strong

So you know your computer will be doing something illegal and yet 
choose to do it anyway simply because you can not see it.  That is 
willful blindness and is not a defense that will stand up in court.
If that was true then the postal system would be in trouble, since I am 
sure most people within the USPS acknowledge that illegal materials 
(such as child pornography) are probably transmitted through the postal 
system, yet they do not open every letter and every package to prevent 
this from occurring, nor are they expected to.

its that they can't.  Now perhaps they don't want to either, but it is 
hard to see how someone can be said to willfully avoid doing something

That is unclear. Otherwise the recent P2P cases where the RIAA has not
achieved victory would not have happened. This is precisely why they
need INDUCE to pass (which probably WOULD criminalize Freenet).
While I am no fan of the Induce Act, I should point out that from my

Shaky logic.  Nothing is forcing postmen to work for the USPS, yet if

ignorance because they chose to work for a service that does look

IANAL (BIKAF), but I would expect that for ignorance to be willful it 
can't be a side-effect of a goal, it must be a goal in itself.  There 
are plenty of reasons why someone might want to use Freenet other than 
obtaining illegal content.

It doesn't matter that they can't see exactly what their node is 
doing, but only the fact that they know what their node is probably 
doing.
If someone gives you a package in Mexico and ask you to carry it 
across the boarder.  You do so and customs finds it full of drugs.  It 
doesn't matter that you didn't see what was in there or even if it was 
locked and you couldn't see what was in there.  All that matters is 
that a reasonable person would know what's in there.
Really?  I suspect there are at least thousands of postal workers who 
deliver packages from Mexico to the US without opening them every day, 
are you suggesting that they could all be arrested?

Freenet is DESIGNED to actively thwart attempts to find the authors.
This is a fundamental design goal. It is a motive. Whereas the postal
system simply doesn't care one way or the other.
The postal system is specifically designed to prevent itself from 
reading what is being posted, this, for example, is why it is illegal 
to read someone else's mail in many countries.

 In fact, right now,
Freenet is so slow that only perverts and geeks use it. Or so it would
be argued.
Being a geek is illegal now?
In any case, I don't see any reason to think that Freenet is illegal
under current US or UK law. Whereas I see every reason to expect it to
be criminalized under INDUCE - which is designed to make it easy to
criminalize things like Freenet. However IANAL, and my opinions are
based on third party analysis of INDUCE by somebody who is probably
merely a law student or interested bystander.
I have seen enough lawyers being completely wrong enough times to trust 
my own judgment on the law before I blindly trust that of a lawyer.  At 
the end of the day, law is just a very long and rather inconsistent 
instruction manual, it isn't beyond the comprehensive abilities of we 
mere mortals, must as many lawyers would like us to think that it is.

Debatable. But most of the problems with Java come from the fact that it
is non-free IMHO. If and when freenet works on GCJ, we benefit from:
1. Reduced CPU usage due to better optimization and no compilation at
run time.
There are optimisations that can be performed at runtime by a JIT which 
cannot be performed by a native compiler, so it can't be taken for 
granted that avoiding runtime compilation is an advantage.

2004-05-24 Thread Ian Clarke
That is a shame.  Clearly I don't agree with your reasoning, there is no 
evidence that any other language would not have similar or worse issues 
(consider the amount of time we would spend dealing with memory leaks 
and array overflows had we implemented in C++). As for focus,  our 
experimental approach is a necessary consequence of the fact that we are 
doing something completely new that nobody has done before, this 
necessitates a different approach than if we were, say, implementing an 
operating system.  Furthermore, many of the changes made to the code 
have been to simplify and refactor it, not just to add further complexity.

Anyway, thanks for your contribution to-date, can someone remove DFI 
from the gateway page?

It saddens me more than a little to have to announce this, but I've decided to
retire from the freenet project.  I will no longer be active as a developer or
as an index site maintainer, or as the operator of a node.
I'm truly sorry, but with only a 1 gHz machine with 512 MB of RAM, freenet
simply consumes too much of my system's resources, both in terms of CPU time
and memory (not to mention bandwidth), especially continuously running a second
Java app besides (the spider).
I find Java's memory requirements to be totally unreasonable, its performance
lackluster, and I've finally come to the conclusion that it was indeed a poor
choice of language in which to implement a project of this size and complexity.
A native-compiled language would have offered vastly superior speed and, no
doubt, significantly lower memory consumption as well.
In addition, I'm finding myself increasingly put off by the project's apparent
lack of organization and focus.  Rather than streamlining, simplifying,
cleaning up and verifying the existing design, we have a never-ending series of
let's try this and let's try that.  Too many code changes are being done on
pure speculation and hopeful optimism, rather than close scrutiny and careful
analysis.  I fear that at the rate we're going, as more and more new ideas are
incorporated into an already extremely complex design, this burgeoning
complexity will eventually result in a system that *no one* truly understands
the workings of, or how the various parts of the whole interact, rendering it
virtually impossible to anticipate or even estimate the impact that changing
this or that part of the code will have on the rest.  This does not exactly
make me feel optimistic about the project's future success.
I still do believe the project's goal is an admirable one, and an important
one, and I do wish you all the best in your endeavors.

Getting Freenet working on OSX is pretty straight-forward provided you

the instructions for Linux.

We could certainly use someone willing to package Freenet up nicely such
that it can be installed and used on OSX without resort to the
command-line - but unfortunately none of the core devs use OSX :-(

You need to remove yourself by logging into your paypal account and 
canceling the subscription.  Contact Paypal support if you need help 
with this.

Once you have done this I am happy to refund whatever you did not intend 
to donate.

Hi,

please take me off immediately from your subscription service.
Consider this february donation the last one. This means I

donating only 20. I would consider a yearly subscription, but
definitely not a MONTHLY one!
I appreciate your immediate attention on this matter.

Um, thanks for the pessimism I guess.

Some of us are working very hard to figure out how to address the 
problems we are seeing, but I guess others just want to benefit from 
this research project without accepting the risks.  Fortunately, most 
seem to accept that sometimes, when you are on the cutting edge, and you 
are trying new ideas all the time, somethings things need to get worse 
so that they can get better.

[freenet-support] Progress report, and request for help

2003-11-22 Thread Ian Clarke
Hi All.  Time for one of my regular progress reports:

Next Generation Routing is in, and we are working feverishly to weed out 
the bugs, and coax it into working nicely.  The process is challenging 
as often the effects of changes cannot be seen for several days, but we 
are making progress.  We have made rapid progress on the issue of 
load-balancing, and are now focusing on how to ensure that node's 
specialize appropriately.  Just yesterday we implemented a change that 
might address this problem although it will be a few days before we know 
how effective it is.

One of the negative effects of our decision to migrate over to next-gen 
routing has been that we haven't put out a new Freenet release in quite 
a while, and this has left the project's finances in a less than ideal 
state, since most of our donations come in in the days after a release. 
 The current status is that the project only has enough funding to keep 
Matthew employed until the middle of next week.  As anyone who follows 
development closely will know, Matthew is central to providing momentum 
to the development process.

As a result, I am appealing to supporters of the project to dig deep and 
make a contribution to keep things going.  You can donate online via 
Paypal or E-Gold, and if you would prefer to contribute by mail, please 
email me directly to arrange it.  If you would like to make an ongoing 
contribution to the project, you can even set up a monthly subscription 
of $5, $10, or $20.

Either way, we really need your support to get us to the 0.6 release on 
which we are now focused.  You can donate by visiting our donations page at:
   http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=donate

Many thanks,

Ian.

Freenet URLs are much more likely to be given to people in hyperlink

[freenet-support] Freenet stable build 5029 - Next Generation Routing now in stable build

2003-10-28 Thread Ian Clarke
After months of work we have finally decided that the Next Generation 
Routing code is ready for wider testing and have thus merged it into 
the stable build of Freenet.

Next Generation Routing or NGR represents a MAJOR change to the way 
freenet searches for data, while still preserving the underlying 
principles of its operation.  For example, Freenet now considers actual 
network latency and bandwidth while making its routing decisions, while 
also considering many other factors including reliability and the load 
imposed on other nodes in the Freenet network.  We believe these 
advances help to keep Freenet on the cutting-edge of P2P research while 
also providing our users with a useful if far-from complete piece of 
software.  To learn more about this see:
   http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=ngrouting

NGR is far from being the only improvement.  We have continued to 
migrate Freenet over to Java's new non-blocking IO API.  We have made 
major changes to Freenet's handling of connections to other nodes, added 
many new diagnostics and configuration options, fixed many bugs.

We believe that this new build will be a great improvement on build 5028 
and we urge all users to upgrade, while cautioning that it is unlikely 
to be without bugs.

As always, while many have generously donated their time and 
considerable expertise to these advances, they would not have been 
possible without the dedication and hard work of Freenet's grossly 
underpaid full-time developer, Matthew Toseland.  Please help us 
continue to grossly underpay him by making a donation to the project at:
  http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=donations

Lastly, please note that this is not a formal release of a new Freenet 
version and it is absolutely NOT Freenet 0.6!  Since this code is still 
rather new, we do not want the publicity that normally accompanies such 
a release.  Please respect our wishes by not submitting this news to 
high-traffic websites - we need to save that publicity for the 0.6 
release which we are now working toward.

Kind regards,

Ian Clarke

  hi there,

  if you enter a non-existent hostname in the allowedHosts field, the
  freenetnode crashes with a BadHostName exception, but does not indicate
  this
  on the system tray (windows).
 
 See my earlier email.  I'm currently modifying the windows tray app to
 probe the FNP (FreeNet Protocol) and web interface ports to see if the
 freenet node is actually running.  This will visually indicate precisely
 this sort of problem.
 As general advice, if you're having problems with freenet and it seems
 like it isn't working as it should, you can right click the tray and pick
 View Logfile to see the most recent logs which should include errors and
 exceptions.  Alternatively use the 'most recent exceptions' (I forget its
 name) in the web interface.
 
 Can you describe the 'crash' ?  Does the web interface actually stop
 working?  Does the BadHostName exception actually not appear in
 freenet.log (as shown by View Logfile) ?

You don't *have* to upgrade just because a new build is available.  
Surely it is better that improvements are made available to users as

This way you get a choice about how up-to-date you want to be.
