The 2.17.0 release brings exciting new features – and some small bug

New is that IPv6 geolocation for IPv6 clients is now enabled. (This
requires recent versions of GeoIP, 1.4.8, and mod_geoip, 1.2.7.)

Furthermore, MirrorBrain responses now include HTTP headers containing
cryptohashes, according to RFC 3230/RFC 5843 HTTP Instance
Digests. In addition, RFC 6249 (Metalink/HTTP: Mirrors and Hashes) is
supported (based on RFC 5988 Web Linking).

Here's a screenshot which says it all :-)

On the "small but useful" front, mb vacuum has a new option: -q|--quiet;
mb edit now respects the VISUAL environment variable; internally, a
database versioning and migration scheme was implemented. 

Bug fixes are: in mb makehashes a problem was fixed with filenames
containing certain characters. mirrorprobe now handles incomplete
responses better.

As new platforms, Ubuntu 11.10 and Debian 6.0 packages are now built and

Please refer to the 2.17.0 release notes for more details.

Packaged binaries are built and ready for upgrading. You will find them
on the http://mirrorbrain.org/download/ page as usual.
