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 at opendht-users@opendht.org 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
