Freenet 0.7.5 Build 1465

Allows the free flow of information and ideas on the Internet without fear of censorship of any kind
Freenet is an open source and cross-platform software designed to allow the free exchange of information over the Internet without fear of censorship, or reprisal.

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.

Main features:

  • Publishing websites or 'freesites'
  • Communicating via message boards
  • Content distribution
  • Sending email messages

What's New in This Release:
  • Oracle Java 6 has not received security updates since February 2013. Starting with this release, Freenet displays an alert when running on old versions of Java. It will require Java 7 or later in a future release.
  • This release changes the rules for accepting connections in a way that we hope will improve performance. Because it is likely that this will interact poorly with the existing behavior, build 1464 and older will become too old on 2014-08-16.
