If you have Python3 and pip >= 8 you can get it with
pip3 install -U --user --egg pyFreenet3. It provides a cleaned up fcpupload script with --spawn support (requires GNU/Linux):
pip3 install -U --user --egg pyFreenet3 echo 1 > testfile fcpupload --spawn --fcpPort 9486 testfile
add -p 1 (high prio) and -e (realtime) for higher speed
It creates a Freenet node which listens at port 9486 (except if one already exists there), inserts the testfile, waits until the upload finishes, gives you a CHK link to the file and stops the node afterwards.
Also fcpupload now works again when used with a remote node.
This is tested by doublec, but still has rough edges (For example pip3 install can fail with error: option --single-version-externally-managed not recognized). But it works: people who have Java and Python3 installed on GNU/Linux can now upload files into Freenet without having to worry about Freenet at all — even without ever seeing it.

The European Copyright directive threatens online communication in Europe.
But thanks to massive shared action earlier this year, the European parliament can still prevent the problems. For each of the articles there are proposals which fix them. The parliamentarians (MEPs) just have to vote for them. And since they are under massive pressure from large media companies, that went as far as defaming those who took action as fake people, the MEPs need to hear your voice to know that your are real.
If you care about the future of the Internet in the EU, please Call your MEPs.
