ANNOUNCING Tahoe, the Least-Authority File Store, v1.12.0
=========================================================

On behalf of the entire team, I'm pleased to announce the 1.12.0 release
of Tahoe-LAFS.

Tahoe-LAFS is a reliable encrypted decentralized storage system, with
"provider independent security", meaning that not even the operators of
your storage servers can read or alter your data without your consent.
See http://tahoe-lafs.readthedocs.org/en/latest/about.html for a
one-page explanation of its unique security and fault-tolerance
properties.

With Tahoe-LAFS, you distribute your data across multiple servers. Even
if some of the servers fail or are taken over by an attacker, the entire
file store continues to function correctly, preserving your privacy and
security. You can easily share specific files and directories with other
people.

The 1.12.0 code is available from the usual places:

* pip install tahoe-lafs
* https://github.com/tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs

Full installation instructions are available at:

 http://tahoe-lafs.readthedocs.io/en/tahoe-lafs-1.12.0/INSTALL.html

1.12.0 improves Tor/I2P support, enables multiple introducers (or no
introducers), allows static server definitions, and adds "Magic
Folders", an experimental two-way directory-synchronization tool. It
removes some little-used features like the "key-generator" node and the
old v1 introducer protocol (v2 has been available since 1.10). Many
smaller fixes and changes were made: see the NEWS file for details:


https://github.com/tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs/blob/0cea91d73706e20dddad13233123375ceeaa7f0a/NEWS.rst

Many thanks to Least Authority Enterprises for sponsoring developer time
and contributing of the new Magic Folders feature.

This is the sixteenth release of Tahoe-LAFS to be created solely as a
labor of love by volunteers. Thank you very much to the team of "hackers
in the public interest" who make Tahoe-LAFS possible. Contributors are
always welcome to join us at https://tahoe-lafs.org/ and
