Version 1.15 is now available. The following changes were made:
  • fixed problems with library directory scanning that would cause delete/re-create cycle on inner folders on some file count changes
  • added option in Settings > Files to control CPU duty-cycle for hashing
  • added option in Settings > Files to limit MB/s rate of hashing
  • request-limiter loss detection routines have been tuned
  • fixed problem with update-check timing
  • fixed problem with file colors in search window
  • only saves library config file to disk if changes have been made
  • prevent system suspend (but not display suspend) while running
  • optimized request-limiter stack management routines to use much less CPU
  • updates to treeview control to better manage column width settings
  • double-click from browse/search will now also directly add the source to pre-existing downloads
We are working quickly to make continued improvements. New releases may be posted frequently. Please keep an eye on the web site or forum for updates.

Version 1.14 is now available. The following changes were made:
  • new portable edition, designed for stand-alone operation on portable media / portable location
  • fixed problems with library file visibility when there are hash-duplicates with mixed sharing status
  • better remote piece load error relaying for peer connections to avoid blocking problems when downloading multiple files from one user
  • improvements to the timing of find sources during network startup
  • channel list tooltips show last online and/or gathered
  • peer report of remote file not shared will cause retries for 15-20 seconds to allow remote to rename/move files without full interruption
  • fixed several problems with peer/file priority selection in menus, especially with multiple items with mixed priority
  • network location hinting has more aggressive filtering
  • fixed problems with shared file counts in browse when not all files in folder are shared
  • network keyword search efficiency improvements that save 15-20% outgoing bandwidth
  • option to weekly check for update now working correctly
  • faster hashng upon piece caching for upload
  • library checks last-modified time on files during directory scan, mismatch triggers file hashing
  • library watches folders for changes via inotify/ReadDirectoryChanges, including last-modified times
  • option in settings to disable all library checking of file last-modified times (work around for rare buggy NAS units)
  • several improvements to Linux inotify client to maximize efficient use of handles and descriptors
  • fixed display/ellipsizing problems with path buttons at the top of browse window
  • fixed several minor GUI issues

  • option in channel settings to copy private key
  • new downloads are auto-scrolled into view
  • new uploads are auto-scrolled if view was previously at bottom
  • implemented FontLink fallback in Uniscribe layouts so most code-points now render correctly
  • work-around Uniscribe bug/crash when processing UTF-16 surrogate pairs with undefined script
  • fixed problems when attempting to trash a download file that is currently allocating
  • more consistent private message length limiting
  • fixed problem with 12/24 hour time display in channel timestamps
  • several improvements to tree-view controls for smoother updating and scrolling
