Changes to the package:

  • Git verifies the signed tag now, you will have to import the freenet developers key from ** or gpg --recv-keys FD6C57F9
  • Includes the Library plugin
  • /opt/freenet folder permissions updated, youll likely see warnings about it when updating. Systemd will change them on its own. Install the package twice and you shouldnt see the warnings again if it changed them correctly.
  • freenet.ini.pacnew can be ignored unless you want a fresh install, only updated for new installations ** New installs will have opennet disabled until you manually enable it
  • wrapper.config.pacnew should be updated if youve made local changes to yours
  • freenet doesnt overwrite our newest geoip db anymore

I can't seem to install the Freemail plugin, it complains that it doesn't have permission to create directories. Any ideas how to fix that?
