2016-06: GNU Taler 0.0.0 released

We have reached our first big milestone, the 0.0.0 release! The release includes implementations of a bank, exchange, merchant and wallet and is available on the GNU FTP mirrors.

While the exchange implements the complete protocol, the implementations of merchant and wallet are both fundamentally incomplete and still lack key features, including important error handling. GNU Taler still lacks an implementation of an auditor or logic for integration with "real" banks. Thus, this release should not yet be used for actual financial transactions.

That said, you can already setup your own functional payment system and run your own toy currency -- or just try out the demo using the Chrome/Chromium browser at
