After we released Tahoe-LAFS v1.8.1 on Nov. 28, the Twisted project
released Twisted 10.2 on Nov. 29, and there is an incompatibility
(since we were relying on internal details of Twisted that we
shouldn't have been) so that you can't use any current version of
Tahoe-LAFS with Twisted 10.2.

Once we've fixed #1286 then this will be resolved and you'll be able
to use the trunk of Tahoe-LAFS with Twisted 10.2.

We've also started reviewing and committing a backlog of tickets, and
improving documentation, the WUI layout, removing dead code from the
source tree, and we fixed up our Debian Lenny buildslaves to produce
.deb's automatically. (See below for a list of tickets.)

Perhaps once we've finished a few more of these outstanding
review-needed tickets and #1286, we should release Tahoe-LAFS v1.8.2.
I'm particularly interested in #585 (make it work with bbfreeze). That
would, I think, let us build a single "tahoe.exe" file which people
could download and execute on Windows to have a running local
Tahoe-LAFS node! :-)

One more thing we could consider, in light of the discussions on this
list, would be to change the default erasure coding settings to
something like (K, H, N) of (1, 1, 1) or (1, 1, 5).

I'll create a Milestone for it on the Roadmap tonight.

If you want to help, review a patch! :-)
