The v1.0 release of allmydata.org "Tahoe", the Least Authority  
Filesystem, will be this coming week.  By marking it as version 1.0  
we intend to convey:

1.  We believe that it is reasonably safe to rely on this software to  
store your data -- safer, at least, than relying on RAID on your PC,  
or relying on copying your data to a remote server.


2.  We intend to maintain backwards-compatibility with this version  
and to actively fix security or reliability issues for the forseeable  

Tahoe v1.0 will be completely backwards-compatible with the current  
release, v0.9.  (Also with the previous release, v0.8, if anyone cares.)

The first major user of Tahoe v1.0 (as far as I know) will be http:// 
allmydata.com -- we at allmydata.com are already in the process of  
transferring our customers' data to a Tahoe grid.

Please see The Roadmap [1] for the details of what needs to be done  
in the next couple of days in order to complete v1.0.  Help is much  
appreciated!  Reports of how it works for you and automated tests and  
documentation are the most needed things at this point.
