I am pleased to announce GoVPN 6.0 release availability!

GoVPN is simple free software virtual private network daemon, aimed to
be reviewable, secure, DPI/censorship-resistant, written on Go.

It uses fast strong passphrase authenticated key agreement protocol with
augmented zero-knowledge mutual peers authentication (PAKE DH A-EKE).
Encrypted, authenticated data transport that hides message's length and
timestamps. Optional encryptionless mode, that still preserves data
confidentiality. Perfect forward secrecy property. Resistance to:
offline dictionary attacks, replay attacks, client's passphrases
compromising and dictionary attacks on the server side. Built-in
heartbeating, rehandshaking, real-time statistics. Ability to work
through UDP, TCP and HTTP proxies. IPv4/IPv6-compatibility.
GNU/Linux and FreeBSD support.

------------------------ >8 ------------------------

The main improvements for that release are:

Argon2d is replaced with Balloon hashing. Found Argon2 libraries written
on pure Go have various problems. Moreover Argon2i should be used
instead, but it has some possible cryptographic defects. So it is
replaced with much more simpler (and seems even cryptographically
better) Balloon hashing.
