I2P 0.7.13 release
« on: May 01, 2010, 09:50:29 PM »
The 0.7.13 release contains several changes and bug fixes to improve performance. It also includes improvements for the plugin support that was introduced in the last release. The new, smaller tunnel build message is enabled, to reduce overhead and increase build success.

Of course, there is the usual assortment of bug fixes as well. Upgrading is recommended.

Please help grow the network. Give the developers feedback on IRC #i2p or forum.i2p2.de and get involved, spread the word, and donate! We are still looking for help on new and existing translations. Please volunteer on IRC #i2p.

Files are available on the download page.
