This page exists to provide a quick glance of the current status of the project.

See also roadmap for the next release.

Core

Subsystems

Freenet uses custom code for various subsystems including config, logging, l10n, error correction, and crypto. Out-sourcing this to external libraries would be helpful in reducing future maintenance. Also, part of the crypto code is from Freenet 0.5 and/or unreviewed.

Deployment

[Windows Installer](Windows Installer "wikilink")

The windows installer and tray app

[Debian Packaging](Debian Packaging "wikilink")

Needs more work. Due to the lower rate of mandatory updates since 2014, it would be feasible now. See [Distro packages#Debian](Distro Packages#debian "wikilink")

[Mac Installer](Mac Tray "wikilink")

The Mac installer and tray app

Translations

Translations are done over Transifex.

New user interface

Many different ideas. The current interface works, but it’s often inconvenient.

Applications

There are a wide variety of Freenet-based applications which you could chose to work on! See Projects.

Operation

Seed nodes

We could do with more seed nodes.

Evaluation

We need feedback on how Freenet performs under different conditions.

Security

Opennet

Opennet can by design only provide limited security (which means that it roughly compares to tor and i2p and needs a huge number of users to provide security against a big attacker. Use the Darknet if you can, and be aware of the Security summary).

Filesharing

Can make it easier to trace users via mobile attacker source tracing if files should stay available a long time or if they are provided on request. Sharing files for a limited amount of time (weeks to months) works well.

Infrastructure

This wiki

We're still migrating from the old wikis. See [contributing to the wiki](contributing to the wiki "wikilink") if you want to help making it better.

Bug tracker

Provides extensive notes on plans and possibilities. Also includes many trivial bugs that should be fixed - or were already fixed but not marked as resolved.

Coverity

Provides a list of defects and other metrics for some of Freenet main projects based on a static code analysis.
