This release fixes a severe vulnerability in path folding that allowed to distinguish between downloaders and forwarders with an adapted node that is directly connected via opennet.

This vulnerability was reported to the Project by Prof. Ming Yang and Prof. Zhen Ling from the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Southeast University, Prof. Xinwen Fu from the Miner School of Computer & Information Sciences, University of Massachusetts Lowell, and Yonghuan Xu from School of Cyber Science and Engineering, Southeast university.

Yonghuan also provided support in fixing the vulnerability. Thank you very much!

To reduce the probability of hitting other problems in path folding, we also merged the pull-request to completely avoid path folding at HTL 17 or higher.
