I am pleased to announce NNCP 5.0.0 release availability!

NNCP (Node to Node copy) is a collection of utilities simplifying
secure store-and-forward files and mail exchanging.

This utilities are intended to help build up small size (dozens of
nodes) ad-hoc friend-to-friend (F2F) statically routed darknet
delay-tolerant networks for fire-and-forget secure reliable files, file
requests, Internet mail and commands transmission. All packets are
integrity checked, end-to-end encrypted (E2EE), explicitly authenticated
by known participants public keys. Onion encryption is applied to
relayed packets. Each node acts both as a client and server, can use
push and poll behaviour model.

Out-of-box offline sneakernet/floppynet, dead drops, sequential and
append-only CD-ROM/tape storages, air-gapped computers support. But
online TCP daemon with full-duplex resumable data transmission exists.

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

The main improvements for that release are:

* *Incompatible* configuration file format change: YAML is replaced
  with Hjson, due to its simplicity, without noticeable lack of
  either functionality or convenience.
* *Incompatible* plain packet format changes. Older versions are not
  supported. zlib compression is replaced with Zstandard, due to
  its speed and efficiency, despite library version is not mature
* Ability to call remote nodes via pipe call of external command, not
  only through TCP.
* nncp-cfgnew generates configuration file with many comments.
  -nocomments option can be used for an old behaviour.
* Duplicate filenames have ".CTR" suffix, instead of "CTR", to avoid
  possible collisions with ".nncp.chunkCTR".
* Ability to override process umask through configuration file
* Files and directories are created with 666/777 permissions by
  default, allowing control with umask.
* Updated dependencies.
* Full usage of go modules for dependencies management
  ("" namespace is used).
* Forbid any later GNU GPL version autousage (project"s licence now
  is GNU GPLv3-only).
