MLdonkey 2.6.3 for Morphos
« on: September 06, 2005, 06:36:19 AM »
MLdonkey is a multi-platform multi-networks peer-to-peer client. Originally, it was the first open-source client to access the eDonkey network. The protocol was 'reverse-engineered' using an efficient protocol sniffer, Pandora.

Changes in the MorphOS release package:

  • new build 2.6.3 (please checkout 'Read more')
  • tools (ed2k_hash, get_range, make_torrent, etc.) added again
  • new server.ini
  • up-to-date guardian.p2p
  • "MLdonkey" startscript changed to handle mlnet.pid after

 system crash and different locations of the settings directory
  • updated documentation (... and please RTFM!)

Important changes in mlnet since last MorphOS release:



Core:
  • create ini file backups on shutdown
  • bunch of new options to handle backup of the config files (with "tar.gz" and "zip" support)
  • Better clear Fifo buffers

  • Kick uploaders which send no data for more than 1 minute
  • Access to disk data (free space, max file name length)
  • support guarding.p2p in zip/gz/bz2 format
