The Mnet Development Team  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  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.

 The Mnet Development Team is a loosely-organized band of hackers from around
the planet who work on the project as a volunteer, non-profit operation in the
public interest. Each hacker is either single or else associated with a very
supportive romantic partner.
 The Mnet Weather Report is a series of e-mails to the mnet-devel mailing
list with the mysterious From: address "Carnivore".
