Freenet 0.7.5 Build 1467
Allows the free flow of information and ideas on the Internet without fear of censorship of any kind
To achieve this Freenet makes it very difficult for adversaries to reveal the identity, either of the person publishing, or downloading content.
The network is entirely decentralized and publishers and consumers of information are anonymous. Without anonymity there can never be true freedom of speech, and without decentralization the network will be vulnerable to attack.
Freenet is unique in that it handles the storage of content, meaning that if necessary users can upload content to Freenet and then disconnect. We've discovered that this is a key requirement for many Freenet users.
Once uploaded, content is mirrored and moved around the Freenet network, making it very difficult to trace, or to destroy. Content will remain in Freenet for as long as people are retrieving it, although Freenet makes no guarantee that content will be stored indefinitely.
The network can be used in a number of different ways and isn't restricted to just sharing files like other peer-to-peer networks. It acts more like an Internet within an Internet.
- Publishing websites or 'freesites'
- Communicating via message boards
- Content distribution
- Sending email messages

What's New in This Release:
- Fixes a bug introduced in build 1466 which can erase the list of plugins to load when Freenet starts if it crashes. If you are affected by this bug and can no longer connect, try adding the UPnP or JSTUN plugins again.
