The past year and a half we have put a large amount of effort into rebuilding the Serval Mesh application from the inside out, to include end-to-end encryption, integrated short-messaging and resilient file sharing, all made much, much more useful by a completely overhauled user interface.
Therefore it is with great pleasure that I announce our first release candidate for version 0.90 of the Serval Mesh.
This has only been possible due to the outstanding efforts, including during some difficult times, of our core team (in alphabetic order): Andrew Bettison, Romana Challans, Jeremy Lakeman and Corey Wallis.
To get an idea of the extent of changes, take a look at the release notes and related documents. Changes include:
If you have used version 0.08, you will notice these changes:
Version 0.90 is still considered experimental software, and there are a number of features and improvements that we intend to implement in releases between versions 0.90 and 1.00.
What we need now is for people to download and test this release candidate, and report any issues they encounter.
For more information, visit the Serval wiki page for this release candidate.
