Exhale is an insertion tool for Freenet running through wine on GNU platformss. The program conforms to the Freenet Client Protocol version 1 as found in Freenet versions 0.5 and 0.6. The software is used to anonymously publish complete freesites using either one-shot or edition based sites into Freenet's distrubuted file system. The software is designed to be easy to use and implements complete thread control so that stalled insertion processes can be restarted. The entire program is coded in C and can be compiled using the MinGW compiler on wine. The program makes use of Zlib and Minizip to implement container freesites. Networking is done using the sprech multiplatform networking library. Due to the unstable nature of Freenet development and the introduction of mature Freenet Java clients, a version for use with Freenet 0.7 has not been released. This may be developed if there is enough interest. There are currently no known bugs with Exhale.
