Changelog for 0.48a Beta1
0.48a BETA1
- April, 29. 2007 -
.: The "official" development environment for eMule has switched to VS2003 SP1. VS2002 is no longer supported (but should still compile fine)
- April, 28. 2007 -
.: Sorting in the ipfilter dialog has been fixed on Vista
.: Tooltips now have the proper size on Vista
.: All file related tooltips should look a bit nicer now (on all systems)
.: Added tooltips to the shared files list
- April, 21. 2007 -
.: Sparse files have been disabled on Vista, due to a faulty / limited Vista implementation of them, which cannot be worked arround by eMule
- April, 15. 2007 -
.: Added a spamfilter for search results. It mainly works by remembering files a user has marked as spam and marking files
which seems to be very similar as spam too.
.: Spam results are drawn gray and always put to the end of the list
.: Spam results count max. 5 sources towards the 100 sources global search limit
- April, 9. 2007 -
.: The default paddingsize for obfuscated TCP connections has been increased to 128 bytes (from 16) in order to be harder detectable by size pattern matchings
.: The paddinglength can be changed manually by adding "CryptTCPPaddingLength=[1-256]" into the eMule section in the preferences.ini
- March, 12. 2007 -
.: eMule now supports multi-user installations, which especially is supposed to fix the folder permission problems on Vista
In short: for Windows Versions before vista, nothing will change by default, on Vista eMule will use the current userspecific folders by default
Please consult the onlinehelp for a detailed explanation. The setting can be changed at the extended options.
