    eMule 0.60A (Beta)

    Miss the good old day with eMule!

    https://forum.emule-project.net/inde...owtopic=165281


    It has been a while, but finally the code has got changes, new executables were compiled and prepared for testing.
    This is the first public beta of eMule 0.60a.

    Internally, the changes are extensive; there are security improvements and optimisations, a few bugs and regressions were fixed.
    All that might be, and in many cases should be, invisible to users.

    The visible side of the changes should be:
    SMTP email notifications can use secure transmission and user authentication
    HTTPS can be used for downloading server.met, nodes.dat, IP filter and language DLLs
    servers: first connection is tried as obfuscated (often server capabilities were unknown at the time)
    minor increase in KAD publishing rate
    Windows UPnP implementation got changes (and needs field testing)
    improved compatibility with the latest versions of mediainfo.dll, including 20.08
    uniform checks for data rate limits
    parts import for handling broken downloads (should be enabled in Options->Extended - for the current session only)

    And now, have you been attentive enough and noticed plural form executables in the first phrase?
    This is not a mistake, there are two executable files, because eMule gets 32-bit and 64-bit builds.


    In 64-bit Windows it is possible to use well know "overwrite the executable" kind of upgrade as the simplest way to switch between 32-bit and 64-bit builds or versions - there and back.
    Of course, external DLLs (MediaInfo.dll, for one) must have the same bitness as eMule itself.

    Moving this thread here for now, since this is apparently a low profile release (no announcements or mentions on the official homepage).

    Anyway, this is so great! There hadn't been a new version in literally a decade... which also means development has been inactive for approximately half of the program's life A part of me can't believe it still works. morph4u's LPE is my mod of choice these days because of its very low resource usage, hopefully he will update it when v0.60 goes out of beta.

    Emule 0.60A (Release Candidate)

    Testing helped to fix a number of issues, the application got one step closer to release.
    This is a release candidate. Please pay attention, this is not the release build yet.

    Internally, the changes are extensive; there are security improvements and optimisations, a few bugs and regressions were fixed.
