Release Notes: In this version, UADDR now uses BerkeleyDB, "normal" download function is replaced by a wrapper to GDL functions. Speed computation is more accurate.

Release Notes: In this release, the BerkeleyDB detection was improved. The transfer key of broken clients can now be accepted. When a transfer with an user ends, other waiting transfers with him are now woken up. Minor bugs were fixed in download and search. It is now possible to link DCTCs of different computers to allow them to share the user IP address database (UADDR) and to perform searches on hub where you are not directly connected to. With the GUI, users can now be flagged from GDL list, the seen hub list is saved faster on leaving, each GDL has a time to complete its task, and the user share list is displayed as a tree and is now buffered to improve display speed.

Release Notes: SOCKS Proxy (v4) is now supported. GDL autoscan now uses the link between DCTC clients. Search queries no longer return your own shared files. It is now possible to retrieve the shared file list of a "not connected on the same hub" user if its address is known. When attaching a GDL to a client, autoscans now restart.

Release Notes: In this release, the temp directory is deleted on GDL destruction, the GDL download source no longer stays in 'try' mode for long periods of time, and direct download is now used.

  •  30 Sep 2001 06:03

Release Notes: When multiple DCTC runs (on different hubs), queued transfers can now go from one hub to another, if the user the owns the file you're downloading has gone to another hub. Numerous bugs have also been fixed: DC clients can now browse a shared file list, DCTC no longer hangs when trying to establish connection with a hub, search query from client in active mode is now supported, and the dc_gui/DCTC freezing problem while browsing heavily loaded hub should be fixed.
