.7 has very few users, very little content, and no opennet.
It's useless for new users.

And the security that you say is better has yet to be tested. I
wouldn't bet on something that's only been around for a few months vs.
something that's been slowly improving for...well, longer than I've
known freenet.

My point of view is that Freenet has always been a work-in-progress. The
0.5 version you call "stable" was under developpement just before
becoming unsupported. It has never been stable : google a bit and you'll
find scripts for restarting it every night because of its "unstability".

Did you try both versions ? If yes, you should have noticed that they
are quite as stable and that 0.7 offers far better performances and
AFAIK the same security level.

So, why should the developpers of the project push newcomers to an
old/buggy/unsupported/user-hostile network while they are working on
another one that is *already* better ?

My 2 cents
