GNUnet Comments

New version 0.10.0 out on 24 Dec 2013

Comment by tabakis
about GNUnet Dec 2013

The biggest change, cryptographic primitives: "GNUnet used RSA 2048 since its inception in 2001, but as of GNUnet 0.10.0, we are powered by Curve25519". This change "breaks backwards compatibility entirely".
