Release Notes: This release fixes random corruption in backend data which caused downloads to be redirected in cosmos (this was introduced by the cache system).

Release Notes: This version fixes the very annoying 'end user sessions bug' on some configurations. It also adds a cache to queries to speed up the network, and incorporates some fixes to both the client and Node Manager.

Release Notes: Remote control support was added to the client via a Web interface, allowing you to schedule downloads from your office directly to your home PC. Support for Microsoft proxy authentication, improved efficiency, updated documentation, forged packet protection, and many bugfixes were added.

Release Notes: An occasional core dump under Linux when exiting the netmess daemon, an occasional race condition in thread code, a small problem in the Client startup code have been fixed.

Release Notes: A little problem for NATed, directly connected Internet nodes was fixed. Better nodelists replication, a PING2 command in the network protocol, and better control of the MySQL daemon at statup were added. Log file garbage is no longer generated when trying to start multiple netmess nodes instances. An experimental IRC chat, improved memory usage, and some other general improvements were added to the client.

Release Notes: Optional listening was added on port 80. Queries speed and routing is improved. Firewalled users can now see who is downloading from them in the status message.

Release Notes: The sources of the client are now online at SourceForge. Small bugfixes were made. An HTTPS CONNECT feature was added, which will speed up a lot proxied downloads. Download performance was enhanced in many cases. Performance behind firewalls/proxies was enhanced.

Release Notes: Some node manager promotion rules were updated. The client now supports multiple users. A client teleconfiguration feature was added.

Release Notes: Query cycle detection was improved. A teleconfiguration function was added. The node promotion rules were changed. A bunch of bugfixes were made. In the Linux version, stability problems were fixed and the dependency on libstdc++ was removed. Plugins are now operational on Linux. A "similarities sorting" feature was added to the client, causing similar files to be grouped and displayed in a tree. An auto-update feature and a download rating feature were also added to the client.

Release Notes: This version adds similarities sorting in the client; this will effectively group results looking the same in a tree, making browsing in other people's files a lot easier.
