The Mnet Development Team [1] is pleased to announce the release of Mnet v0.6.1.

Mnet is a "universal file space" -- a global space in which you can store and 
retrieve files.  The contents of the universal file space are independent of 
any particular server.  It comes with a GUI file browser that looks a bit like 
a classical file-sharing tool such as Napster.  The code is published under the 
Lesser GNU Public License.

The major improvements of v0.6.1 over v0.6 are GUI improvements, faster 
searches, reduced RAM usage and reduced CPU usage.

This is the last release planned from this branch of the Mnet source code.  The 
next planned release will include a completely new, scalable lookup mechanism 
among other substantial changes.

See the Mnet weather report [2] for the current size of the network and 
measurements of the number, kind, and size of files available.

Please view the ChangeLog for more details:


Please visit the download page for precompiled packages for Windows, Mac OS X, 
Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.  Also available from the download page are 
instructions for compiling the software from source.


Please use Mnet and report bugs via e-mail to <mnet-devel at lists.sf.net>, or by 
using the SourceForge bug tracker:


The availability and persistence of files is strongly influenced by how stable 
the servers are.  If you run a stable Mnet server it will help.
