DC++: 0.760 is out

0.760 is another landmark release after more than a year of hiatus. Above the windows theme integration and modern look'n'feel our newest client brings a lot of new improvements on the GUI behaviour, either. For example its possible to organize your hubs to certain groups from now or as another major enhancement , users are able to throttle their up and downloads. Parsing of XML inputs are rewritten from scratch so existing hublists should be checked to fully comply to the standards. Beside the plenthora of small bugs fixed this version of DC++ also drops compatibilty of old NMDC format hubists and clients using ADC 0.10 or older protocol.
Have fun using DC++ !

DC++: 0.750 is out

This is a project aimed at producing a file sharing client using the ADC protocol. It also supports connecting to the Direct Connect network.

0.750 marks the moment where the migration to MinGW is mature enough to call DC++ a full MinGW compliant application. This release improves the program functionality and how it works on your system. Major enhancements include : openssl fix for older libraries, fixed major known crashes, updated help, minor GUI features, new interface for settings page, and the REF extension for NMDC and ADC that allow peers attacked by the CTM exploit(willingly or unwillingly) to find out the corrupted hub that is used for attacking.
Have fun using DC++ !

DC++ 0.709 available

0.709 comes out with the main goal to address the bugs that made 0.708 unstable, and also fixes more problems that were discovered lately in DC++. Help pages have been updated also for a better user interaction and OpenSSL was updated. We hope this new version will be more stable and especially more reliable.
