Mnet is a universal file space (a single, global virtual space into which you can put, and from which you can get, files). It comes with a single global namespace so that there is no conflict over filenames. It is also an emergent network, one in which the important features of the network result from the interactions of nodes operated by autonomous people or organizations who do not explicitly coordinate with one another. There are many interesting applications that can be built on top of an emergent network and a universal file space. The first application that has been written for the Mnet project is a file-sharing application which lets you search for and download files of all kinds from the universal file space. Mnet is descendant of Mojo Nation.

Release Notes: The major user visible improvements are that broken files now get erased from the visible content and that downloads work much faster and more reliably.
Release Notes: Ported to cygwin, Solaris, and FreeBSD, and fixed the "XML encoded binary data" bug which corrupted some files. Much code has been refactored, cleaned up, or removed. This version does not fix bugs that cause downloads to pause for 15 minutes or hang indefinitely, memory leaks that cause some servers to use up all RAM, or issues in the architecture which cause files to disappear.
