The Freenet Project team announced the newest version of its censorship prevention suite on March 8th 2017. This release provides easy, privacy-preserving publishing in the darknet without the need for a server. By loading the Sharesite plugin, users can publish multiple simple websites with just a few clicks. These sites get stored decentrally within Freenet so they stay available after the user goes offline. Like all other content in Freenet they can then be accessed anonymously and users can opt-in to receive a notification in the Freenet web interface when a website they watch gets updated.

When accessing content Freenet provides many precautions against accidental de-anonymization. One of these features is protection against media files which could spill the users address or exploit security problems in browsers. This release tightens these protections for the common gif image files by detecting and removing potentially dangerous data in these files, for example comments which could be interpreted as instructions for the browser.

The new release is available for Windows, OS X, and GNU/Linux. It can be downloaded for free from
