GNUnet is a peer-to-peer framework with focus on providing security. All peer-to-peer messages in the network are confidential and authenticated. The framework provides a transport abstraction layer and can currently encapsulate the network traffic in UDP, TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, or direct 802.11 (WLAN). GNUnet supports accounting to provide contributing nodes with better service. The services built on top of the framework include anonymous file sharing and a virtual network providing IPv4-IPv6 transition via protocol translation over the P2P network.

Release Notes: This maintenance release fixes a few minor bugs.
Release Notes: This release adds support for non-anonymous data transfers over multiple hops (if both publisher and replicator are using an anonymity level of zero). It fixes various bugs and includes cosmetic improvements in the gnunet-setup and gnunet-fs-gtk user interfaces.
Release Notes: This release adds a few features and fixes a large number of bugs. It is largely protocol-compatible with GNUnet 0.9.3. It introduces flow- and congestion control for the multicast system, support for exit policies and exit discovery for the GNUnet VPN, support for tunneling P2P traffic over HTTP(S) with reverse proxies, and various performance improvements.
Release Notes: This release adds a few features and fixes a number of bugs. It is protocol-compatible with GNUnet 0.9.2. There were various minor changes to the C APIs and the peer-internal protocols. This is the first release that has a compatible Java API. gnunet-java 0.9.3 can be used to access many of GNUnet's services from Java. This release also contains the beginnings of a new GNUnet-based Naming System (GNS), implementing a fully decentralized, backwards-compatible replacement for DNS (many important features and documentation are still missing, but the foundations are there).
Release Notes: This release brings a major rewrite of the VPN subsystem, resulting in significant performance and stability improvements. It also includes a new linear programming based automatic transport selection mechanism. It fixes various bugs and brings various API extensions and other minor improvements. Except for the VPN subsystem, this release is protocol-compatible with GNUnet 0.9.1.
