0.9.4 Release - Blog

0.9.4 includes a fix for a network capacity bug, introduced in 0.9.2, that was reducing network performance and reliability. It also includes major changes in the in-network update system, and adds the capability to update via in-network torrents.

We fixed several bugs in the i2psnark DHT implementation that was introduced last release. For those of you using console or http proxy passwords, we converted to the more-secure digest method and improved the security for console forms.

For those of you already running development builds, your router should automatically update to 0.9.4-0 using the new in-network torrent facility. For those running 0.9.3-0, you will update normally using in-network HTTP, and we will have more information for you when we release 0.9.5.

Files are available on the download page.
