Today is exactly 10 years ago that tinc 1.0 was released.

Show full text.

We would have hoped to celebrate this by releasing 1.0.22 and 1.1pre8 today, but this will instead happen in one week.

Tinc 1.1 is close to becoming stable, and I hope to release 1.1.0 before the end of the year. The main features of tinc 1.1 are the improved security over tinc 1.0, and a much nicer interface that makes it very easy to set up new VPNs, and allows you to easily get live information from a running VPN. Tinc 1.1 will also feature an invitation protocol which allows you to easily invite others to join a VPN, by simply giving them an invitation URL that you can create with a simple command. No central servers are involved, invitees will directly connect to your own tinc node to redeem invitations. The invitation protocol will be available in the 1.1pre8 release.
