Freenet 0.7.5 build 1291 is now available, please upgrade. "The recent client layer bug" is some sort of database corruption bug in 1286 or thereabouts, or maybe even earlier, which caused NullPointerException's and requests to stall. 1287 detects this and cancels the requests, and also makes sure it doesn't happen again. But it doesn't tell the user. Sorry for the confusion, I should have added an alert in in the first place.
Changes in 1288: - Fix a major memory leak in the new message queueing code, and add some measures to limit the size of the old ID's cache by reducing the maximum age and periodically deleting ID's for completed requests. - Detect the recent client layer bug when changing priority. - Fix a major datastore bug (both stats and bloom filter), and force rebuild for the bloom filters. This was causing both >100% usage on the stats page and an over-full bloom filter resulting in too much disk access. - Multiple selection on the downloads/uploads pages. Ugly at the moment, help would be appreciated! Changes in 1289: - More work on recovering from the recent client layer bug which we work around by cancelling downloads. Tell the user what is going on, and make sure restarting works. Changes in 1290: - Some more fixes to restarting downloads. Changes in 1291: - Fix a stupid bug in 1289, telling the user would have broken fproxy in some cases. Apologies for the lack of rigorous testing recently. There hasn't really been anything to fall back to, most of the builds have been broken one way or another so waiting a week for testing has not been feasible. There are a few more core features that need merging in the near future, but these will be tested before releasing (but they will eventually be mandatory). Near future: - Threadless block transfer. Send side has been fairly thoroughly tested already, receive side needs more testing. This will help on fast nodes with low thread limits, and is necessary for the bulk flag. - Fairness between peers in accepting requests. This is necessary for new load management and greatly improves Freenet's resistance to simple denial of service attacks, and should also help nodes with low bandwidth limits to not be crowded out by everyone else. - Bulk flag. This should enable significant performance improvements. - Load management hints. This is the last stage before full new load management is possible, although it will take some time to get that working. One other core feature which is essential before 0.8 is to sort out node.db4o encryption and implement auto-backups (and probably some caching too). After that hopefully it's all bugfixing and merging. Obviously there is work to be done on the Windows installer and Freetalk, but there are also a bazillion bugs to fix in Freenet itself. It's probably worth doing some work optimising the search plugin too. THANKS TO: infinity0 etaoin toad
