First preview of gnunet-gtk 0.7.0

2005-05-31: First preview of gnunet-gtk 0.7.0*
    Work on GNUnet 0.7.0 is progressing.* Just to show where we are, here is a screenshot from the new GNUnet GTK user interface.



Note that the only thing working in the interface is the keyword search.* However, the search shows one of the nice features of 0.7.0, previews.* In GNUnet 0.7.0, it is possible for search results (and directories) to contain thumbnails.* This way, GNUnet can show previews of the files -- before any download.

The new GNUnet GTK user interface uses Glade, which makes it easy to customize and extend the UI.* The code for gnunet-gtk is no longer part of the main GNUnet codebase:

$ svn checkout https://gnunet.org/svn/gnunet-gtk

That sounds very interesting and usefull!  :)

But: Thumbnails doesn't protect the downloader against movie fakes... The thumbnails are perhaps faked too, if the filename is changed...  ::)
A "web of trust" is necessary to fight against such things.

0.7 will feature Friend-to-Friend besides Peer-to-Peer topology.
