Dear all,

We are happy to announce the release GNU Taler v0.4.0 with support for
customer refunds, protocol versioning, incremental key material
download, returning funds from the wallet directly back into one's bank
account, and various other minor improvements. The Chrome and Chromium
wallets are available for download via the App store.  The exchange,
merchant backend and bank components are on the GNU FTP mirrors.  Note
that the Firefox wallet will take a few more days to become available in
the App store due to the Mozilla review process.

GNU Taler is a free software electronic payment system providing
anonymity for customers. Payments can in principle be made in any
existing currency, or a bank can be launched to support new currencies.
Merchants are not anonymous, and--due to income-transparency--the state
can perform effective tax audits.

This is still an alpha release of the five key components providing
logic for running an auditor, bank, exchange, merchant and wallet

Key open issues include:
* No integration with "real" banks, so only toy currencies are
  available for now.
* Documentation, testing, error handling and performance still
  need to be improved.

You can download GNU Taler from:
* All GNU FTP mirrors             ftp://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gnu/taler/
* Our Git repository is at        https://www.git.taler.net/

Please report bugs to our bug tracker at       https://gnunet.org/bugs/

Documentation can be found at                  http://www.taler.net/
Additional documentation about the APIs is at  https://api.taler.net/
A demo is running at                           https://demo.taler.net/

Happy hacking!

Christian & Florian & Jeff & Marcello
