MUTE File Sharing is a peer-to-peer network that provides easy search-and-download functionality while also protecting your privacy.
It compiles as a fast, native application for many platforms (no Java, no Python, etc.).
MUTE protects your privacy by avoiding direct connections with your sharing partners in the network. Most other file sharing programs use direct connections to download or upload, making your identity available to spies from the RIAA and other unscrupulous organizations.
MUTE is based on research, and experiments show that it works quite well. MUTE's ant-inspired routing is light-weight, robust, and adaptive. Results from experiments in real MUTE networks show that the collective behavior of MUTE nodes quickly finds the shortest (or fastest) routing path between two nodes on the network.
What's New in This Release:
· This release fixes bugs in MUTE's initial connection to the network upon startup.
· MUTE has also been upgraded to Crypto++ 5.4, so it should now compile using GCC 4.1.
