Please read the following important message
Thank you all for your interest in Adeona.
Please note that Adeona is an ongoing project and research prototype.
Adeona depends on OpenDHT, which
runs on PlanetLab. OpenDHT has
been experiencing some problems. We are working on a new, still privacy-respecting
version, that does not depend on OpenDHT/PlanetLab. It may take some
time to have this solution in place. In the meantime, if you would like
to show support for the OpenDHT project, please visit
its website or send an e-mail
to the OpenDHT mailing list
if you notice problems.
For now, we apologize for the problems with using Adeona, stemming
from the problems with OpenDHT, but we look forward to the new
version being out as soon as possible. If you would like to receive
announcements about Adeona, please subscribe to our RSS feed
available on the main page and throughout the website.
Thank you for your patience,
The Adeona Team
