Latest version: v0.3 - Graphical user interface
April 28th, 2006
Three months have passed since the last release, and time has come again for a release. When the previous release's focus was on Bittorrent support, this time the focus was on Graphical User Interface. As such, engine updates have been minimal, but still include several important fixes, mostly on the Windows platform.
Important engine updates include support for more than 64 open connections on Windows, support for files larger than 2GB on Windows, and full support for Windows XP Service Pack 2 (half-open connections limiting). eDonkey module upgrades include improved UDP protocol handling, better A4AF handling and other performance and protocol improvements. Bittorrent got some updates as well, most importantly multi-tracker support.
Since this is the first release of the user interface, not all things we planned made it into the release. However, the currently existing features should be sufficient for daily usage. The interface was developed to be ergonomic, easy to use and visually appealing without sacrificing functionality. We hope you will enjoy using the interface as much as we enjoyed creating it.
