Stable Build 5099: Network reset

Stable build 5099 is now available widely. This is a stable network
reset; you WILL need to reseed if you are still on 5096 or earlier.
Thanks to all who helped to test 5097, 5098 and 5099. Thanks partly to
their efforts, this build appears to have greatly improved insert
performance relative to 5096, and there are 64 nodes of build 5099 in
the seednodes, so upgrading should be relatively uneventful. You may be
able to use the update utility on Windows, or on Linux. If
this does not work, for example if your node connects to zero nodes
after startup, download seednodes.ref manually from , and save it over your existing
seednodes.ref . If you can't use the updater you will also need to get
freenet-latest.jar, which replaces freenet.jar. In any case you will
need to turn off the node before updating. If you have any problems
contact us.

The changes in this build are numerous, the highlights:
- Much better insert performance due to numerous bug fixes, some of
  which were quite serious, and some minor architectural changes
  relating to inserts.
- New simulator application merged to stable. Not usable by most end
  users, but has been producing a lot of interesting results for us.
  Please do not try to slashdot us on the simulation; when we have
  some more results we will put up a page showing our findings, with
  lots of graphs.
- Lots of minor code cleanups.
- A few other minor changes.
