ed2k-shutdown 0.2 released

ed2k-shutdown is a little helper tool which cleanly shuts down a running edonkey2000 or Overnet command line client (the command line client needs to be made to listen on the admin port however, and the admin username and password must match as well, of course).

This is just a port to gnet2/glib2.

New Feature:
Now you can also use ed2k_shutdown to just send a single 'command line command' to the core. Very useful for cron scripts and the like. You can also implement an ed2k-link handler this way that sends new ed2k-links from your browser directly to the command line client, without using ed2k-gtk-gui or the like.... read more

ed2k_hash v0.4 for windows now available

ed2k_hash v0.4 for windows is not available.

This is a complete GUI rewrite based on the FLTK toolkit, by Jeromy Laheurte.

Versions for linux will follow as soon as I get around to sorting out the automake/-conf stuff (hopefully next week when I'm back).

overnet-unfreezer lite 0.2 released

Can't stop releasing new versions ;)
Lite 0.2 has an altered freeze detection mechanism that should be way better.

overnet-unfreezer lite 0.1 released

Eventually, a version of this workaround for a bug in the Overnet command line client for Linux is being released on Sourceforge. I hope not too many more will be necessary before the bug is fixed. ;)

ed2k_hash 0.3 released

version 0.3 is now available as a source tarball for linux/*nix platforms.

It should compile fine on windows, too but lacks some functionality on windows.

ed2k_hash v0.3 in CVS

ed2k_hash is in CVS. It is a complete rewrite of the original code and has many goodies (like descending recursively into directories [at least on unix systems; the windows code for this is not implemented yet])...

check out module ed2k_hash from the repository.
