n downloading, red when a download is errorous, yellow otherwise

t especially on LANs, making eMule more suitable for those

-----------------------
- Feb, 28. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a problem with the sharedfiles list when deleting a shared files [dolph
inX]
.: Fixed minor possible memory/ressource leak in the archive recovery and ipfilt
er [dolphinX]
.: Fixed possible problem when wrong incoming directory due to categories in cer
tain cases [dolphinX]
-----------------------
- Feb, 19. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a bug in Kad which would not enforce the search tolerance in certain ca
ses
.: Changed Kad to work better in small LANs. If Kad detects it is running on a L
AN (only LAN IPs in the routing table), it will assume beeing open and not behin
d a NAT/Router without trying to verfiy (which would fail in a small LAN),
and also doesn't enforces several security features like flood detection
for LAN IPs. Now even a small Kad LAN of 2 nodes works well without any setup i
ssues
(To create such a Kad LAN, make sure all clients have Options->Extended->"Filter
server and client LAN IPS" disabled, delete the existing nodes.dat if necessary
, go to the Kad dialog and enter the IP+Port of one other client (which is eithe
r connected or in connecting mode for Kad) to the bootstrap box - done)
-----------------------
- Jan, 25. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The connection wizzard is no longer shown after finishing the first start wiz
zard (it's deprecated)
.: The first start wizzard is only shown on first starts and no longer after upd
ates
-----------------------
- Jan, 21. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new graph to the Kad window, which lets you watch each Kad lookup in
detail. For non-Devs this is just for fun, you don't need to worry about anythin
g shown there. A detailed explanation of the graph can be found in the onlinehel
p.
.: Added "Automatically show active searches" option to the context menu of the
new graph which lets it switch to active lookups automatically (instead having t
o select it in the list). Now you can watch Kad working for hours without a clic
k! :)
-----------------------
- Jan, 12. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new dockable toolbar to the transfer dialog. The buttons resemble the
context menu options, but making them accessible easier and faster. The toolbar
can be removed by right clicking on it and shown again by selecting context men
ue option of the downloadlist
-----------------------
- Jan, 10. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The context menu in of the downloadlist allows now directly assign a file to
a new category (instead of having to create it separately first)
.: The "Unassign" category context menu entry is now only available if a file ac
tually has a category
-----------------------
- Dec, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed missing setting saving after automatic adapting incoming folders of cat
egories due to changed main incoming folder
.: Fixed a bug with overwriting the nodes.dat on times we actually don't want to
write it [Nissenice]
.: Added a quick intermediate fix to make certain Kad lookups more reliable, imp
roving the (search/source-) results in some cases [based on research from http:/
/www-users.cs.umn.edu/~hopper/kad.pdf]
-----------------------
- Nov, 28. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Switched the eMule fileidentifiers from ED2k-Hash + Size to ED2k-Hash + AICH-
Hash + Size. This means eMule is now using two hashing algorithms combined (base
d on MD4 and SHA1) to verify if a received part (and eventually the comlete file
s) is not corrupt
This change is necessary due to weaknesses in the MD4 algorithm and enables e
Mule to make sure to never complete a corrupt files for the next decade
All changes are backwards compatible, so no clients or files will be exluded
from the network
.: AICH part hashsets are build out of existing AICH recovery hashsets, no rehas
hing is done
.: AICH verification is enabled when using an ed2k link with included AICH hash,
or when searching and downloading a file from Kad when certain requirements are
met (this will only start to work once the majority of nodes update)
.: The AICH hash can be seen in the search results list for kad searches if avai
lable
.: ed2k links can no longer be created without the AICH Hash, except if it is no
t available. ed2k links without AICH hash are considered deprecated, but are sti
ll accepted by eMule for now
-----------------------
- Nov, 15. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files list now shows files in root directories properly [dolphinX]
.: Fixed a bug with determining if the filesystem can handle large files when us
ing categories [dolphinX]
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "KeepUnavailableFixedSharedDirs" ("eMule"-S
ection) which lets eMule keep shared directories on fixed drives even if they ar
e not found anymore
.: Fixed minor memleak on kad searches [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
-----------------------
- Oct, 13. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "ForceSpeedsToKB" ("eMule"-Section), which
will make eMule display all speed values in KB/s (instead of B/s to TB/s dependi
ng on the speed)
-----------------------
- Aug, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files dialog has now a tab selector, letting you choose to view th
e statistics,(reduced versions of) the content, ed2k-link or metadata info for t
he selected file(s)
.: The statistics page on in the shared files dialog also has the following new
entries: Popularity rank (ranking all your shared files based on Requests), On Q
ueue (clients on queue for the selected file) and Uploading (current bandwidth u
sed to upload the selected file)
.: The new tabs in the shared files dialog can be closed or restored by an arrow
button on the right side
-----------------------
- Aug, 3. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed possible resource leaks in ZIP file decompression [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]

eepOnError", "DontRecreateStatGraphsOnResize", "UpdateQueueListPref", "MessageFr
omValidSourcesOnly" (Section "eMule") and "EnabledDeprecated" (section "PeerCach
e")
.: The exit conformation messagebox has now a "Don't ask me again" option
.: Added "Pause on when preview possible" option to the downloadlist context men
u. Only visible when "advanced mode controls" is enabled
-----------------------
- Jul, 09. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Improved storing AICH hashsets after a download has finished - should be much
faster now if you share many files
.: Sparse files are available on Windows7 again, Vista stays the only version we
re they are disabled
-----------------------
- Jun, 12. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Added basic checks and user warnings for wrong operator usage (like using OR

sults in such cases.

exact phrases with quotes
