Freenet 0.5 build 5108 Released

About a week ago I noticed that The node version information page was not only showing that my node was aware of over 550 nodes, but that build 5108 has appeared. Since then I’ve gotten the official build from the freenet site and gave it a test run. Then I got a custom build that included the painkiller mods and put it in.

Current node version information:

So far the modded 5108 appears to be running smoothly. I’m going to update my alternate freenet download page sometime in the next week or so to include both the “official” 5108 and the “painkiller” version.

This has appeared because a volunteer has taken over development of the 0.5 branch of freenet. ….. I’ll have more about that when I get a chance to spend some time reading Frost boards.

This is probably the last one of these I’m going to do for a while since the node’s data store is continuing to grow in size and the node appears to be pretty much fully integrated with the network. Performance wise everything is working every bit as good as before. Freesites that load now are the same ones that worked before, Frost messages are working, and a couple of test downloads with Fuqid worked as expected also.

I notice there’s 4 nodes using 5108, a new build with a fix for a weak DH exchange.

Uptime 22 hours 53 minutes since last reboot

Connections open (Inbound/Outbound/Limit) 126 (79/47/2000)
Transfers active (Transmitting/Receiving) 18 (11/7)

Now a week since restarting fresh and the data store is growing

Data Store:

Used space 2,597,196 KiB
Free space 23,617,204 KiB
Percent used 9
Total keys 7262

There’s now 315 active nodes known about and the number continues to grow:

Conclusion… with the right settings in the freenet.ini file and even ONE good node reference, freenet can grow quickly

Something over two days in and the datastore is beginning to fill out to a percentage greater than one.

The routing table is also shaping up pretty good. It now knows about 225 nodes that it has connected to

And of course, traffic and number of connections is at normal levels
(current uptime is 9 hours 36 minutes since last reboot)

I’m about a day and a half into the new node experiment. Starting out with a new node identity and an empty 25 Gib data store.

Current snapshot of the node’s state;

Node performance is exactly what I’m used to in terms of freesites loading, frost messages being retreived & inserted and in the insert progress of a file with Fuqid.
