It is not a closed protocol, but it is continually evolving and not well 
documented. I don't believe that rewriting Freenet in C (or assembler for 
that matter) would dramatically improve performance, and a pure client will 
probably not be well integrated into the network i.e. be slow. Your best bet 
is probably to work on Freenet itself and then build a nice filesharing GUI 
(which can be proprietary if you need it to be), and bundle Freenet with it.

You can look here :

How will you build your client ? The best way I think is to build a new 
plugin for fproxy.

Hello,

I'm a developer from Ukraine.
I have to create small Freenet client (file sharing only), but it seems that it 
is problem to find Freenet protocol specification.
Can you tell me, is it closed protocol, or where can I find this specification 
if it's possible...?
Waiting for any news from you.

Hello,

I'm a developer from Ukraine.
I have to create small Freenet client (file sharing only), but it seems that it 
is problem to find Freenet protocol specification.
Can you tell me, is it closed protocol, or where can I find this specification 
if it's possible...?
Waiting for any news from you.


Thank you for your time.
