This release is going to focus on identifying hardening the netDb against context confusion attacks, refining and elaborating upon the behavior of the blocklist, and mitigating some of the types of spam which have appeared on the network. We will be implementing handling of congestion capabilities, eliminating the majority of lookup spam, and implementing an i2pd-style multiple-netDb design which allows each client to use a different store of LeaseSets than a floodfill running on the same router, providing us with a clear boundary between information sent to and used by clients and information sent to and used by the router. By doing things this way, we can also make make it easier for the netDb to handle obscure cases like multihoming. Please test, test, test, and report your findings, these are big changes and they won't go in unless we are sure they're right.
