    Release Notes: Much faster searches through a UDP engine rewrite. Secure signed update checks, so no one can fool your Phex into trusting a false update. Last but not least, there are quite a few bugfixes.

    •  08 Jul 2007 07:13

      Release Notes: The GUI received many smaller improvements and a multitude of lesser and bigger changes happened under the hood. Download-side THEX integration was added, so poisoned files are no longer possible. The upload architecture was redesigned and a far leaner security system is used for better performance and a vastly reduced memory footprint. Many bugs were fixed.

        Release Notes: This release should improve performance and fix many user-reported problems like download deadlock situations, memory leaks, and too many open file errors.

          Release Notes: On the interface side, Phex now has a new way to handle downloads, so you can set a target-folder for each download individually. The splash screen can now be hidden by left-clicking on it. Below the surface, Phex got an all new and more structured system for handling preferences, which further improves the separation of GUI and Core. A download write buffer is used to reduce the load on your disk. Some nasty little bugs were fixed.

            Release Notes: This bugfix release should solve the problem of completed download files not being copied into the destination directory. It also adds French language support.
