ANNOUNCING Tahoe, the Least-Authority File Store, v1.12.1
=========================================================

On behalf of the entire team, I'm pleased to announce the 1.12.1 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 1.12.1 code is available from the usual places:

* pip install tahoe-lafs
* https://github.com/tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs
  * tag: "tahoe-lafs-1.12.1"
  * commit SHA1: ce47f6aaee952bfc9872458355533af6afefa481
* https://tahoe-lafs.org/downloads/ (and SHA256 hashes)

    070d2a4c4ea220863ff078e8032c01746572e5513c4ac26dc3de4bd03f6d25c1
  * detached GPG signatures (.asc) are present for each file

All tarballs, and the Git release tag, are signed by the Tahoe-LAFS
Release Signing Key (fingerprint E34E 62D0 6D0E 69CF CA41 79FF BDE0 D31D
6866 6A7A), available for download from
https://tahoe-lafs.org/downloads/tahoe-release-signing-gpg-key.asc

Full installation instructions are available at:

 http://tahoe-lafs.readthedocs.io/en/tahoe-lafs-1.12.1/INSTALL.html

1.12.1 fixes a few small things from the 1.12.0 release: the
multiple-introducers ("introducers.yaml") feature was completely broken,
creating nodes with --hide-ip on I2P-only systems should not set "tcp =
tor", and at least one --listen=I2P problem was fixed. Please see the
NEWS file for details:

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

This is the seventeenth 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
https://github.com/tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs .
