GNUnet 0.7.0a released

GNUnet is a framework for secure peer-to-peer networking that does not use any centralized or otherwise trusted services. A first service implemented on top of the networking layer allows anonymous censorship-resistant file-sharing. GNUnet uses a simple, excess-based economic model to allocate resources. Peers in GNUnet monitor each others behavior with respect to resource usage; peers that contribute to the network are rewarded with better service.

GNUnet 0.7.0a was released. This is a bugfix release for 0.7.0. Among other things, 0.7.0a fixes various crashes as well as connectivity, efficiency and routing issues. The new release supports MySQL 5.0 (in addition to MySQL 4.1 and SQlite).
