Suicide? So the fact that gaim has 1.5 in their downloads section when
they have 2.0 beta 3 out is suicide? The fact that some Linux distros
still use the 2.4 kernel is suicide? Funny how they're all still here
and quite popular....
Linking to 0.7 is suicide. New people come, download it, find there's
nothing there, and leave. And don't try again later. I understand that
there are good reasons behind developing the darknet....but for most
users looking at freenet, they're looking for an opennet. And they're
looking for a network up and running. They're not expecting something
that's just barely starting.

I'm not sure stopping linking it on the website would help it have more
users. About content, I see new freesites apearing quite the same rythm
as on 0.5 so it's just a matter of time for 0.7 to have as much content
as 0.5.

Where did I say that ? In "the same security level." ?
AFAIK, "the same" is not equal to "better". Maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway, I won't argue on that because the decision is not in my hands.
The fact is that 0.7 is the only supported version and that it is the
future. Not linking to the current version and gripping to the old one
would be an interesting kind of suicide for a project that's a constant
work-in-progress...
