eMule is a peer-to-peer file sharing application for Microsoft Windows. Started in May 2002 as an alternative to eDonkey2000, eMule now connects to both the eDonkey network and the Kad network. The distinguishing features of eMule are the direct exchange of sources between client nodes, fast recovery of corrupted downloads, and the use of a credit system to reward frequent uploaders. Furthermore, eMule transmits data in zlib-compressed form to save bandwidth.


eMule 0.49a FINAL


0.49a
-----------------------
- May, 8. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: If extended controls are enabled (and if available) Kad search results show the amount of known unique publishers for a file in parentheses in the availability column (this isn't equal to sources, but it is a bit more trustworthy indicator how common a file is).
.: Updated CxImage lib to the latest version (6.0), fixes some image processing vulnability (low risk for eMule) [reported: Steve Manzuik/Juniper Networks]
.: Fixed Unicode issue in stored and loading searches
.: DirectCallback sources are now properly added to and checked against the deadsource list

eMule 0.49b FINAL


Changelog for 0.49b
eMule 0.49b
-----------------------
- Jul, 31. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed some rare possible crashes

eMule 0.49b BETA2
-----------------------
- Jul, 28. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added deleting of single entries from AutoComplete drop down lists by pressing the DEL key.
.: Added a new search method option "Automatic" which lets eMule choose which search method to use. eMule will select either Servers (Local) or Kad, based on which network we are connected to and some other indicators if connected to both networks.
.: Removed a general exception handler for the Beta version. This means eMule crashes instead of ignoring unexpected errors, which however is needed so we actually can find such bugs (if any exist) in the crashdumps.

-----------------------
- Jul, 26. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Implemented a special nodes.dat version, which is more suited for mass distribution without causing significant additional traffic for the included nodes. This hopefully allows us to add a nodes.dat to the installer, so that new user can connect to Kad without having to connect to servers or downloading a nodes.dat themself

-----------------------
- Jul, 15. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Implemented an alternate method to estimate the total user count in the Kad network, which is not based on our local routing table. Its experimental and only shown in the network dialog (double click the world icon in the status bar)
.: Adjusted the displaying of the user count by not showing numbers for a network we are nto connected to

-----------------------
- Jul, 14. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a minor bug with kad obfuscation when contacting answering unbofuscated hello-requests
.: Made sure that only one challenge to verify a contact is sent at a time to the same IP

eMule 0.49b BETA1
-----------------------
- Jul, 11. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added MiniUPnPLib as additional UPnP implementation, the current Windows service based implementation is used as fallback. This will hopefully make eMule's UPnP compatible to most available routers. [miniupnplib by Thomas Bernard, Test & Suggestion: leuk_he]
.: A specific UPnP implementation can be disabled by adding "DisableMiniUPNPLibImpl=1" or "DisableWinServImpl=1" into the "UPnP" section of the preferences.ini

-----------------------
- Jul, 5. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: When reading a nodes.dat without any verified contacts (possible an old file version), eMule will assume all contacts to be verified to avoid slowing down the connecting process
.: Project files for VS2005 and VS2008 have been added, however the official eMule is still developed and compiled on VS2003

-----------------------
- Jun, 27. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Several changes were made to Kad in order to defy routing attacks researched by University of Minnesota guys [Peng Wang, James Tyra, Eric Chan-Tin, Tyson Malchow, Denis Foo Kune, Nicholas Hopper, Yongdae Kim], in particular:
.: Kad contacts will only be able to update themself in others routing tables if they provide the proper key (supported by 0.49a+ nodes) in order to make it impossible to hijack them
.: Kad uses now a three-way-handshake (or for older version a similar check) for new contacts, making sure they do not use a spoofed IP
.: Unverified contacts are not used for routing tasks and a marked with a special icon in the GUI

-----------------------
- Jun, 22. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Shared Files window splitter did not properly save/restore position.
.: Did first small step in dropping Kad1 support by not probing unknown Kad contacts for Kad1 anymore to save overhead. Kad1 clients will nevertheless still be work for now.
.: Fixed a bug which let Kad sometimes assume a Kad2 contact to be Kad1 after probing for both versions

-----------------------
- Jun, 18. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Memory leak in context menus.
.: Added: Vista styles for context menus.

-----------------------
- Jun, 12. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Pressing ESC in Shared Files window filter destroyed the entire window.

-----------------------
- Jun, 10. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added additional sanitize checks to make sure eMule never writes downloaded data into an already completed part
.: Optimized the Kad packettracking code to only tack packets which we check later, to save ressources

-----------------------
- Jun, 9. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed 100% CPU usage bug with tooltips in Statistics Graphs.
.: Added: Tooltip in Statistics Graphs show the Y-value.
.: Kad no longer tries to add UDP firewalled (and therefore mostly unreachable) nodes into its routing table, reducing overhead and increasing reliability [Idea: Netfinity]
.: Kad tries to determine the overall ration of firewalled clients in the Kad network and shows them in the statistics tree. This will only work if you are not firewalled yourself and know enough 0.49b+ nodes
.: When calculating the total user count, Kad now uses (if available) the real number of firewalled clients for the calculation instead a fixed value. This will take more effect when 0.49+ nodes become common

-----------------------
- Jun, 5. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: The "Handle eD2k-Links" button now also works properly with Vista's UAC enabled

-----------------------
- May, 31. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added: Unshare context menu entries for directories within the virtual "Shared Directories" folder.

-----------------------
- May, 28. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added: Vista themes for all owner drawn tab controls.
.: Added: Vista themes for category selector controls.

-----------------------
- May, 25. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed main toolbar redrawing problems under Vista.
.: Reworked connecting code, fixing some minor and some major bugs, including a possible loop in unreachable DirectCallback sources

-----------------------
- May, 19. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Added new close icons for closeable tab controls.
.: Kad now ignores multiple IDs pointing to one IP in routing request answers

-----------------------
- May, 18. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Tab controls were not sized correctly on certain text contents.

-----------------------
- May, 17. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Category tabs in Transfers window did not show correct default text color.
.: Fixed: Category properties dialog did not always show the correct (default) category color.
.: Added: Hot tracking effects for Vista themes for all (owner drawn) tab controls.

-----------------------
- May, 12. 2008 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed: Tooltips did not show correctly with Vista Aero theme.

-----------------------
.: Fixed a minor GUI drawing issue in the transfer window [dolphinX]
.: Added GUI name references to some more Kad queries [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
.: Added sanity check for rare issue seen in crashdumps concerning SourceExchange responses

-----------------------
- Feb, 15. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed the following BETA bugs:
- Popups on the shared files list were not working
- The shared files count in the GUI wasn't always accurate
- Resolved shell links had some issues, preventing them from getting shared
- The GUI wasn't always properly updated when deleting a file in the shared files window

eMule 0.49c BETA2
-----------------------
- Feb, 11. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a BETA bug in the new part.met recovery function

-----------------------
- Feb, 10. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Resolve shared shell links has now its own option in the extend dialog instead beeing a preferences.ini only option
.: Added the preferences.ini only option "FileBufferTimeLimit" ("eMule" section) which lets you set the maximum seconds before flushing the buffer of downloading files (default 60)

-----------------------
- Feb, 9. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: When another client requests to view your shared files and directories (and you allow it), eMule will now attach only the directory names (or relative paths if it is a shared subdir) instead the full path for privacy reasons
.: Fixed a BETA bug which caused eMule to not send single shared files when answering view shared files requests

-----------------------
- Feb, 8. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: On a fresh eMule installation, several less important list columns are now hidden by default to avoid overloading the interface
.: Fixed some BETA bugs with creating collections
.: Slightly increased the max. button size of the maintoolbar
.: You can no longer share single files within unshareable directories (like your temp dir)

-----------------------
- Feb, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a BETA bug which made eMule ignore the longest keyword on server searches
.: Added sanity checks for some problems seen in crashdumps when sending responses
.: Added sanity range check for preferences.ini only option: tcp obfuscation padding length

eMule 0.49c BETA1
-----------------------
- Feb, 4. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Dates shown in the download list have their own time format setting ("DateTimeFormat4Lists" in preferences.ini) which is by default more compact than the old one
.: Added a column to the download list which shows the date when the download was started

-----------------------
- Feb, 2. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Kad routing query contacts are checked against the routing table
.: Kad no longer allows more than 2 IPs from the same subnet within one routing query reply (except on LANs)
.: Fixed small bug in the uploadthrottler [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]

-----------------------
- Jan, 27. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The Kad UDP firewalltest now asks several clients for its external port, avoiding to get a wrong "Open" state on NATs which change the source port on each request but behave like a Full-Cone otherwise
.: Kad now rechecks incoming search results against the filters used for a search and drops all results which fail (which should only happen for buggy clients and spam results)

-----------------------
- Jan, 25. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: When corrupted part.met files are detected, eMule now automatically tries to use the part.met.bak files instead
.: Some data (like the AICH hashset, statistics, metadata etc) from known/downloaded files which were not shared within the last month now gets purged to save ressources and avoid an unlimited growth of the known.met files
(the first purge will be done one month after upgrading, if you have "Remember downloaded files" disabled all unshared files are completely deleted right away so this change would have no further effect)
.: If you want to avoid this purging for some reason you can put "PartiallyPurgeOldKnownFiles=0" in the "eMule" section of your preferences.ini

-----------------------
- Jan, 20. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: When sorting lists for file types, eMule now further sorts by extension when the filetype is the equal

-----------------------
- Jan, 11. 2009 -
-----------------------
: On simple search queries Kad now rearrenges the used keywords itself and uses the longest keyword to determine which node to ask. This reduces the search load on common used keyword nodes like "and", makes such keyword a less viable target to attackers and allows users to do a search which begina with a short keyword like "An eMule"
.: You can deactivate this by putting "RearrangeKadSearchKeywords=0" into the "eMule" section of the preferences.in (there isn't much reason to do so for normal users however)

-----------------------
- Jan, 10. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: You can now also share single file and directories by Drag&Drop - simply drag them from (for example) the Windows Explorer into your Shared Files list
.: You can now share and unshare single files in the shared files window by chking/unchecking the files in the "All directories" tree. Downloading files and files in the incoming directory cannot be unshared
(first one is required for the network the second one is for consistency as the incoming dir is not handled as optional shared dir, therefore not marked in the tree as shared which again would make it pretty hard to find it to reshare any excluded files)
.: Kad file/source search answers now try to avoid using fragmented packets, making it more compatible to zealous firewalls routers which block those (effect increases as more nodes update to this version)

-----------------------
- Jan, 5. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a possible crash in the (minilib) UPnP implementation
.: The Webinterface port can now also be forwarded by UPnP (Options->Webinterface)
.: The UPnP mappings are checked and refreshed if needed before Kad firewallchecks, after waking up from suspend and on smart lowid detection when connecting to servers

-----------------------
- Jan, 3. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The allowed comment size has been increased to 128 characters
.: Fixed a bug which made the download list use the wrong text color in some cases, mostly noticed on special windows themes

eMule 0.50a BETA1
-----------------------
- Mar, 8. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a bug which caused the "Add files to download in paused mode" otpion to not work properly in all cases
.: Fixed a visual glitch on taksbar notifiers when using the Aero theme [gureedo]

-----------------------
- Mar, 3. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added Windows 7 taskbar goodies:
- global progress bar in the eMule taskbar button, progress colors: green when downloading, red when a download is errorous, yellow otherwise
- Taskbar Buttons: when hovering over the eMule taskbar button (connect/disconnect/throttle/unthrottle/open preferences)
- Overlay icon: Overlay icon on the eMule taskbar button indicating active up- and downloads (disabled by default, enable by ini entry "ShowUpDownIconInTaskbar=1").

-----------------------
- Mar, 1. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Tweaked uploadcode to significantly increase the possible uploadspeed per slot especially on LANs, making eMule more suitable for those
.: The number of maximal open upload slots has been decreased to 100
.: Fixed a bug which caused the "Add files to download in paused mode" otpion to not work properly in all cases

-----------------------
- Feb, 28. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a problem with the sharedfiles list when deleting a shared files [dolphinX]
.: Fixed minor possible memory/ressource leak in the archive recovery and ipfilter [dolphinX]
.: Fixed possible problem when wrong incoming directory due to categories in certain cases [dolphinX]

-----------------------
- Feb, 19. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a bug in Kad which would not enforce the search tolerance in certain cases
.: Changed Kad to work better in small LANs. If Kad detects it is running on a LAN (only LAN IPs in the routing table), it will assume beeing open and not behind a NAT/Router without trying to verfiy (which would fail in a small LAN),
and also doesn't enforces several security features like flood detection for LAN IPs. Now even a small Kad LAN of 2 nodes works well without any setup issues
(To create such a Kad LAN, make sure all clients have Options->Extended->"Filter server and client LAN IPS" disabled, delete the existing nodes.dat if necessary, go to the Kad dialog and enter the IP+Port of one other client (which is either connected or in connecting mode for Kad) to the bootstrap box - done)

-----------------------
- Jan, 25. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The connection wizzard is no longer shown after finishing the first start wizzard (it's deprecated)
.: The first start wizzard is only shown on first starts and no longer after updates

-----------------------
- Jan, 21. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new graph to the Kad window, which lets you watch each Kad lookup in detail. For non-Devs this is just for fun, you don't need to worry about anything shown there. A detailed explanation of the graph can be found in the onlinehelp.
.: Added "Automatically show active searches" option to the context menu of the new graph which lets it switch to active lookups automatically (instead having to select it in the list). Now you can watch Kad working for hours without a click! :)

-----------------------
- Jan, 12. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new dockable toolbar to the transfer dialog. The buttons resemble the context menu options, but making them accessible easier and faster. The toolbar can be removed by right clicking on it and shown again by selecting context menue option of the downloadlist

-----------------------
- Jan, 10. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The context menu in of the downloadlist allows now directly assign a file to a new category (instead of having to create it separately first)
.: The "Unassign" category context menu entry is now only available if a file actually has a category

-----------------------
- Dec, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed missing setting saving after automatic adapting incoming folders of categories due to changed main incoming folder
.: Fixed a bug with overwriting the nodes.dat on times we actually don't want to write it [Nissenice]
.: Added a quick intermediate fix to make certain Kad lookups more reliable, improving the (search/source-) results in some cases [based on research from http://www-users.cs....hopper/kad.pdf]

-----------------------
- Nov, 28. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Switched the eMule fileidentifiers from ED2k-Hash + Size to ED2k-Hash + AICH-Hash + Size. This means eMule is now using two hashing algorithms combined (based on MD4 and SHA1) to verify if a received part (and eventually the comlete files) is not corrupt
This change is necessary due to weaknesses in the MD4 algorithm and enables eMule to make sure to never complete a corrupt files for the next decade
All changes are backwards compatible, so no clients or files will be exluded from the network
.: AICH part hashsets are build out of existing AICH recovery hashsets, no rehashing is done
.: AICH verification is enabled when using an ed2k link with included AICH hash, or when searching and downloading a file from Kad when certain requirements are met (this will only start to work once the majority of nodes update)
.: The AICH hash can be seen in the search results list for kad searches if available
.: ed2k links can no longer be created without the AICH Hash, except if it is not available. ed2k links without AICH hash are considered deprecated, but are still accepted by eMule for now

-----------------------
- Nov, 15. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files list now shows files in root directories properly [dolphinX]
.: Fixed a bug with determining if the filesystem can handle large files when using categories [dolphinX]
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "KeepUnavailableFixedSharedDirs" ("eMule"-Section) which lets eMule keep shared directories on fixed drives even if they are not found anymore
.: Fixed minor memleak on kad searches [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
-----------------------
- Oct, 13. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "ForceSpeedsToKB" ("eMule"-Section), which will make eMule display all speed values in KB/s (instead of B/s to TB/s depending on the speed)

-----------------------
- Aug, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files dialog has now a tab selector, letting you choose to view the statistics,(reduced versions of) the content, ed2k-link or metadata info for the selected file(s)
.: The statistics page on in the shared files dialog also has the following new entries: Popularity rank (ranking all your shared files based on Requests), On Queue (clients on queue for the selected file) and Uploading (current bandwidth used to upload the selected file)
.: The new tabs in the shared files dialog can be closed or restored by an arrow button on the right side

-----------------------

-----------------------
- Apr, 2. 2010 -

eMule 0.50a BETA1
-----------------------
- Mar, 8. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a bug which caused the "Add files to download in paused mode" otpion to not work properly in all cases
.: Fixed a visual glitch on taksbar notifiers when using the Aero theme [gureedo]

-----------------------
- Mar, 3. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added Windows 7 taskbar goodies:
- global progress bar in the eMule taskbar button, progress colors: green when downloading, red when a download is errorous, yellow otherwise
- Taskbar Buttons: when hovering over the eMule taskbar button (connect/disconnect/throttle/unthrottle/open preferences)
- Overlay icon: Overlay icon on the eMule taskbar button indicating active up- and downloads (disabled by default, enable by ini entry "ShowUpDownIconInTaskbar=1").

-----------------------
- Mar, 1. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Tweaked uploadcode to significantly increase the possible uploadspeed per slot especially on LANs, making eMule more suitable for those
.: The number of maximal open upload slots has been decreased to 100
.: Fixed a bug which caused the "Add files to download in paused mode" otpion to not work properly in all cases

-----------------------
- Feb, 28. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a problem with the sharedfiles list when deleting a shared files [dolphinX]
.: Fixed minor possible memory/ressource leak in the archive recovery and ipfilter [dolphinX]
.: Fixed possible problem when wrong incoming directory due to categories in certain cases [dolphinX]

-----------------------
- Feb, 19. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed a bug in Kad which would not enforce the search tolerance in certain cases
.: Changed Kad to work better in small LANs. If Kad detects it is running on a LAN (only LAN IPs in the routing table), it will assume beeing open and not behind a NAT/Router without trying to verfiy (which would fail in a small LAN),
and also doesn't enforces several security features like flood detection for LAN IPs. Now even a small Kad LAN of 2 nodes works well without any setup issues
(To create such a Kad LAN, make sure all clients have Options->Extended->"Filter server and client LAN IPS" disabled, delete the existing nodes.dat if necessary, go to the Kad dialog and enter the IP+Port of one other client (which is either connected or in connecting mode for Kad) to the bootstrap box - done)

-----------------------
- Jan, 25. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The connection wizzard is no longer shown after finishing the first start wizzard (it's deprecated)
.: The first start wizzard is only shown on first starts and no longer after updates

-----------------------
- Jan, 21. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new graph to the Kad window, which lets you watch each Kad lookup in detail. For non-Devs this is just for fun, you don't need to worry about anything shown there. A detailed explanation of the graph can be found in the onlinehelp.
.: Added "Automatically show active searches" option to the context menu of the new graph which lets it switch to active lookups automatically (instead having to select it in the list). Now you can watch Kad working for hours without a click!

-----------------------
- Jan, 12. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: Added a new dockable toolbar to the transfer dialog. The buttons resemble the context menu options, but making them accessible easier and faster. The toolbar can be removed by right clicking on it and shown again by selecting context menue option of the downloadlist

-----------------------
- Jan, 10. 2010 -
-----------------------
.: The context menu in of the downloadlist allows now directly assign a file to a new category (instead of having to create it separately first)
.: The "Unassign" category context menu entry is now only available if a file actually has a category

-----------------------
- Dec, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Fixed missing setting saving after automatic adapting incoming folders of categories due to changed main incoming folder
.: Fixed a bug with overwriting the nodes.dat on times we actually don't want to write it [Nissenice]
.: Added a quick intermediate fix to make certain Kad lookups more reliable, improving the (search/source-) results in some cases [based on research from http://www-users.cs....hopper/kad.pdf]

-----------------------
- Nov, 28. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Switched the eMule fileidentifiers from ED2k-Hash + Size to ED2k-Hash + AICH-Hash + Size. This means eMule is now using two hashing algorithms combined (based on MD4 and SHA1) to verify if a received part (and eventually the comlete files) is not corrupt
This change is necessary due to weaknesses in the MD4 algorithm and enables eMule to make sure to never complete a corrupt files for the next decade
All changes are backwards compatible, so no clients or files will be exluded from the network
.: AICH part hashsets are build out of existing AICH recovery hashsets, no rehashing is done
.: AICH verification is enabled when using an ed2k link with included AICH hash, or when searching and downloading a file from Kad when certain requirements are met (this will only start to work once the majority of nodes update)
.: The AICH hash can be seen in the search results list for kad searches if available
.: ed2k links can no longer be created without the AICH Hash, except if it is not available. ed2k links without AICH hash are considered deprecated, but are still accepted by eMule for now

-----------------------
- Nov, 15. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files list now shows files in root directories properly [dolphinX]
.: Fixed a bug with determining if the filesystem can handle large files when using categories [dolphinX]
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "KeepUnavailableFixedSharedDirs" ("eMule"-Section) which lets eMule keep shared directories on fixed drives even if they are not found anymore
.: Fixed minor memleak on kad searches [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
-----------------------
- Oct, 13. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: Added preferences.ini-only option "ForceSpeedsToKB" ("eMule"-Section), which will make eMule display all speed values in KB/s (instead of B/s to TB/s depending on the speed)

-----------------------
- Aug, 7. 2009 -
-----------------------
.: The shared files dialog has now a tab selector, letting you choose to view the statistics,(reduced versions of) the content, ed2k-link or metadata info for the selected file(s)
.: The statistics page on in the shared files dialog also has the following new entries: Popularity rank (ranking all your shared files based on Requests), On Queue (clients on queue for the selected file) and Uploading (current bandwidth used to upload the selected file)
.: The new tabs in the shared files dialog can be closed or restored by an arrow button on the right side
