Phex - P2P Gnutella filesharing program / News: Recent posts

Phex 3.2.0 released

After almost 5 months of constant development Phex now reached its next release.

The GUI received many smaller improvements and a multitude of lesser and bigger
changes happened under the hood.

The most notable ones are:

First: download-side THEX integration, so poisoned files are a thing of the
past.

Second, a major redesign of the upload architecture and far leaner security
system for better performance and a vastly reduced memory footprint. ... read more

Phex 2.8.8 released

Phex is a peer to peer file sharing program running on the Gnutella Network. It's available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, and other operating systems supporting Java 1.4 or later.
Phex supports the latest Gnutella protocol, swarming downloads, multiple searches and many other advanced features.

Phex 2.8.8 focuses on bug fixes and optical improvements. We present Phex with a new set of icons, which we hope are more appealing to you then the old icon set. Additionally we solved a few problems with firewall detection and the OSX release.
Very likely Phex 2.8.8 will be the last release supporting Java 1.4. From now on development will switch the to Java 5 and it will be required for the next major release Phex 3.0. Major or critical bugs might be back ported to the Phex 2.8.x release line, but this will have low priority. If you are interested in maintaining a Java 1.4 release line, please contact us.... read more

Phex 0.5.6 released...

The main improvement of this release is a new auto connect
host panel that allows you to configure new auto connect
hosts by yourself. This was introduced fast because
recently there is a problem to find a running standard auto connect host.

Phex 0.5.5 released

In this release some little GUI improvements and bug fixes
are added. But most important a major improvement was done
with fixing of errors for file resuming. Also the Phex
configuration files are now stored in a separate folder.

The release has been split into a binary release
(phex_0.5.5.zip) and a source only release
(phex_0.5.5_src.zip). If you are only interested in using
Phex just download the binary release. For developers the
source release might be interesting too.

Phex 0.5.3 released...

Funny enough: exactly one month after the last release the next generation of Phex is now available. Some of the issues we heard over and over again have been adressed: the GUI-freeze-bug has been fixed, but what is more important is the greatly improved hostcatcher. Phex connects to the network in no time now. All in all Phex 0.5.3 is now more stable and more performant then all previous versions and you should really grab Phex 0.5.3 in the files section.

Phex 0.5.2 released...

Some changes in the automated search bahaviour make Phex
a little less agressive towards the Gnutella-network.

Phex like before version 0.5.0 with the "java -jar phex.jar"
command.

Posted by Konrad Haenel 2001-06-25

New release...

I just released Phex 0.5.0 today. Its "amazing" (as Steve and Bill would say), so get yourself a copy and forget about the other poor gnutella clients.
