      • Is it possible to implement the freenet protocall on a microcontroller?

        I am thinking of the esp8266 platform, with an SD card as storage. The implementation would be written in C. Any of your devs with C experience think that this might be possible for me to undertake from a technical perspective?

        I am envisioning "smart dust", with esp8266's plugged into usb for power, with little solar panels, or otherwise powered.

        With built in wifi, they could connect to ahotspot or through a mesh network (there are already mesh implementations for them) and provide high availability, low powered nodes with 32 or 64 gb of storage for the network.....and they cost…

              • Rewrite the program in C. Oust Java. It's a pain in the ass to install. Keep it simple.

                I would like to see freenet rewrote in C. Get rid of Java. It would be faster and more secure. Java is a pain in the rump to update and install. I hate java. and java based programs. C would make Freenet fly a lot better with the public.

                  Freenet takes forever to start. That's so annoying, it makes me want to pull my hair out!

                  • Move away from Java (consider Lua)

                    Both the U.S. Department of Justice and NSA have issued statements recommending that everyone stops using Java, due to fundamental flaws on both the JVM and the language itself that make Java software genetally insecure. Moreover, Java code tends to have performance and memory leaking issues. Would you consider moving to or allowing a fork of Freenet in another language?

                    Lua comes to mind, as it can run as fast as compiled C code. It is also much easier to learn, which could help bring more developers on board.

                    • My database keeps getting corrupted after crashes - Why is Freenet so corruption prone?

                      I can't back up Freenet every day. There must be a better way of preventing data loss. Make it so I can fix a corrupted queue, or make the files auto-backup. It's really frustrating when I I finally catch up to where I was last time, and then it corrupts again, and my last backup was weeks ago. The last two times I backed up the files only to find out they were already corrupted when I turned Freenet back on, so my last working backup is from March.

                        • Supply signature files for installer

                          you should add gpg signatures for the installer and also ensure a https download for them. Otherwise there is no way to trust the downloaded file.

                          • serving distributed calculation

                            I hope Freenet can serve dynamic website. For example, I made a site like twitter(of course I havn't), call it SS. All SS's code is Java, run in jvm. Then I can upload the site to Freenet and people's computer will run it in a jvm. This is just distributed calculation. What's more, people can browse a url and be responded by SS. Then a distributed twitter is made, just like twister using bitcoin block. The distributed calculation can be used in many ways, like twister, health research......

                              • Make dynamic web pages possible.

                                Freenet is currently like the Web 1.0, it only serves the static content. In order to be more useful and popular among users it should enable its users to run dynamic web pages like web discussion forums, chans etc. I realize it is a challenge but I guess it is worth considering.

                                  I got feedback from someone I've recommended the Freenet, that Freenet has Java Runtime Environment too much in the foreground and it would be better for security reasons if Freenet would rely by default or at least more on OpenJDK and have OpenJDK more in the foreground than now; for example on the installation sub website of freenetproject.org and the wiki.

                                  • The Next Era of Freenet Technology

                                    Freenet is a great Project... For accessing the rest of the Internet some may say TAILS utilizing TOR will still be the best..
                                    The FBI wants to hack users behind VPN/TOR ...
                                    What we need is a Freenet like connection system, sharing the bandwith to actually suf the web while getting rewarded to do so and need to give the rewards to surf again..
                                    So we need a freenet network that allows us to utilize a socks5 relay to secure each others and get to close locations of websites with allways non blacklisted ips.. real censorship free human driven networks.…

                                      Hallo,

                                      schade das diese Seite größtenteils auf Englisch ist, ich z.B. verstehe kein Englisch, so geht es sicherlich vielenen älteren Bürgern in der Bundesrepublik. Immerhin sprechen in Europa über 100 Millionen Menschen die deutsche Sprache, warum wird diese Gruppe ausgeklammert? Spanisch wird wesentlich seltener gesprochen, wurde aber dankenswerter Weise berücksichtigt.

                                      Ich habe großes Interesse an freenet, verstehe aber auf Grund der englischen Sprache nichts.

                                      Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort

                                      Frank

                                        • fix the mac installation. It doesn't recognize java during setup.

                                          It used to work. Now the installer works with java, but when the files are installed and setup begins, it suddenly can't find the java runtime environment and just hangs.
