Stable build 5087 is now available. The snapshots have been updated. Please upgrade. You can do this on Windows by using the update option on the start menu. On Linux, OS/X etc, you can update by using the update.sh script (and restart the node). You can alternatively shut down your node and download http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/freenet-latest.jar over your existing freenet.jar, then restart your node.
To obtain best performance from this build, you will need to update your freenet-ext.jar. Shut down the node, download the new freenet-ext.jar from http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/freenet-ext.jar , copy it over your existing freenet-ext.jar, and then restart the node. If you do this, and you are using a supported platform (pentium 2/3/4, athlon, on windows or linux), you should get a significant reduction in CPU usage with this build. We have included native code optimizations for the above platforms for certain heavy math operations that Freenet does frequently and that Sun's implementation is not good at. Specifically, on my Athlon XP, I get a factor of 8 performance gain on modPow(), which is a very common operation in asymmetric crypto, and a big part of Freenet's overall CPU usage. I also get a factor of 3 gain in BigInteger.doubleValue(), which is used constantly in routing. Other changes: Fixed several major bugs introduced recently, which generally had the effect of preventing the node from opening connections. These are hopefully the main causes of the problems reported with 5085/5086; obviously the node will not run well if it only has 10 or 20 connections. Also, back off connection attempts to a node if the connection lasts less than 20 seconds. Traffic padding improvements (reduced padding size to 200 bytes, laid the groundwork for further reductions once 5087 is common by no longer sending RequestInterval on all FNP messages, instead send smaller fixed length packet-messages containing the MRI, one with every packet). Fix a rare NPE, delete some unused code, add some comments, change some logging, SuSE wants LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 (not 2.2.5) in start-freenet.sh. -- Matthew J Toseland - [EMAIL PROTECTED] Freenet Project Official Codemonkey - http://freenetproject.org/ ICTHUS - Nothing is impossible.
