  • Speed up for large IP-filter list loading.
  • Option to make eMule use highres scheduling (better precision for sleeps and some timers). Currently the upload throttler takes advantage of it if enabled, which may give smoother upload performance and smoother pings while using eMule. Try it at you
  • Changed search function in IP-Filter Dialog: When searching for an IP in the "Start" column, the "range" where the specified IP is within is searched. Hint: This way one can check if a particular IP is blocked in the loaded IP filter list.

  • An option to enable or disable MiniMule has been added to the General options dialog
  • Servers added from other clients or servers will now get low priority by default
  • Reworked file comment dialogs: added rating icons, network info and sortable comment list
  • Added archive recovery for ACE archives. (As for ZIP & RAR already present: create a version of the downloading archive containing the files that are already available.)

  • 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).
  • Made sure to always use the intern UDP port if both (intern and extern) ports succeed in the firewall test
  • Changed installer to set the currently used shared usage setting as default if available
  • Buddy search interval has been reduced, to increase the chance to find a buddy without waiting too long

  • When deleting more than 50 files the first 50 names are shown in the confirmation dialog [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
  • Kad will now enforce certain limits when adding new contacts to the routing table: No more than 1 KadNode per IP, 2 similar KadNodes (same bin) from a /24 network and max 10 different KadNodes from a /24 network are allowed. This is supposed to make routing attacks against kad more difficult / resource-intensive
  • Clients which sent comments which get filtered by the comment spam filter are now treated like message spammers (banned)
  • The ed2k: in ed2k-links is no longer case sensitive
  • When connecting to Ed2K eMule starts with a random server instead using first on in the server.met. Any sorting, priority, etc. is not affected by this
  • Kad now keeps track which filenames were published by different sources for the same file and uses the most common name (instead the last published one) when responding search requests
  • Same hashs (files) which have different filesizes are now properly stored seperatly instead overwriting eachother
  • Kad calculates a rating based on how many different sources publish a file and how many files publishes a source. When responding to a search request, files with a rating below a set limit will be sent last in order to avoid that spammed files push out valid ones.
  • If you select a non-default incoming directory which already contains files, eMule notices you that those files are automatically shared by eMule
  • Rearranged the symbols in the shared files directory tree a bit
  • The onlinehelp for the options dialog is now topic sensitive for all languages instead only for english (well actually it is not, but this is serverside work which will be done step by step till the release). More areas to get topic sensitive to come in the future
  • The new UDP state is shown in the MyInfo field in the Server Tab. As long as the UDP firewalltest is unfinished "(unverified)" is appended
  • Added showing of IRC-warning and error messages to the active channel window.
  • Added auto-activating of private IRC channel windows when self-initiating the conversation.
  • When messaging a friend, eMule now makes sure that the userhash still matches after connecting and SecureIdent (if enabled) is passed in order to ensure that its really your friend.
  • Added Uyghur translation [translated by Abduqadir
  • Added deleting of single entries from AutoComplete drop down lists by pressing the DEL key.
  • 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 not connected to
  • Made sure that only one challenge to verify a contact is sent at a time to the same IP
  • A specific UPnP implementation can be disabled by adding "DisableMiniUPNPLibImpl=1" or "DisableWinServImpl=1" into the "UPnP" section of the preferences.ini
  • 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
  • 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]
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Added: Vista styles for context menus.
  • 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
  • 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
  • Added: Unshare context menu entries for directories within the virtual "Shared Directories" folder.
  • Reworked connecting code, fixing some minor and some major bugs, including a possible loop in unreachable DirectCallback sources
  • Added new close icons for closeable tab controls.
  • Kad now ignores multiple IDs pointing to one IP in routing request answers
  • Added: Hot tracking effects for Vista themes for all (owner drawn) tab controls.
  • Added GUI name references to some more Kad queries [tHeWiZaRdOfDoS]
  • 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)
  • 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
  • On a fresh eMule installation, several less important list columns are now hidden by default to avoid overloading the interface
  • Slightly increased the max. button size of the maintoolbar
  • You can no longer share single files within unshareable directories (like your temp dir)
  • 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
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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
  • If you want to avoid this purging for some reason you can put "PartiallyPurgeOldKnownFiles=0" in the "eMule" section of your preferences.ini
  • When sorting lists for file types, eMule now further sorts by extension when the filetype is the equal
  • 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"
  • 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)
  • 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
  • The allowed comment size has been increased to 128 characters
  • Added support for Windows 'Address Space Layout Randomization' security feature (Windows Vista)
  • Made sure a received Kad routing answer doesn't contain more contacts than requested [Xin Sun]
  • Added support for Windows 'Exception Handling Protection' security feature (Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista)
  • Added showing of watermark images to listviews (see "LvBkImg" entries in "Template.eMuleSkin.ini")
  • Unified drawing of multiple selected items in all listviews.
  • Several optimizations in listview drawing.
  • Added drag image for files in Transfers window (used when dragging selected items onto a category tab).
  • Added label tips for partially visible sub items in all list views.
  • Added default sort orders to list views in Transfers window.
  • Added list view search functions for sub items.

  • Added simple on-the-fly filter for search results to filter already received results. The
  • 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.
  • 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

  • Added showing of smileys to Chat and IRC windows [Smileys by Daan]
  • Each dialog (kad, server, etc) has now its own "doorway" helptopic which eMule shows when pressing F1 or the Helpbutton, instead of only calling the helpindex

  • The download comments dialog has now a direct possibility to edit the comment spam filter, changes are instantly applied to all existing comments
  • Several changes have been made to improve kads resistance against malicious keyword publishing
  • Added a general anti-flood-protection to kad. If Kad receives more request of a specific type from one IP than it would expect, it starts ignoring those requests and envetually banning the source. This is supposed to avoid or slow down several attack scenarios.
  • Added a filter box (like in the search results) for on-the-fly filtering of shared files into the shared files tab. This filter is supposed to help finding specific shared files, it has no effect on which files are actually published
  • Open searches are now stored if you close eMule and restored on restart. This way you don't have to research your favourite words in case you didn't get to finish looking at the results. Can be disabled in Options->Display

  • You can now bootstrap to kad from an URL which points to a nodes.dat file (in the Kad tab)
  • In order to reduce spam messages and by this make the messagesystem more useable again, eMule now supports Captcha authentification
  • Added obfuscation to the Kad UDP protocol. Kad obfuscation is part of the protocol and is unrelated to the Ed2K-Obfuscation settings
  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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]
  • Added: Vista themes for all owner drawn tab controls.
  • When corrupted part.met files are detected, eMule now automatically tries to use the part.met.bak files instead

  • 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
  • Added support for Windows 'Heap Corruption Detection' security feature (Windows Vista)
  • Added support for preview the content of ISO files. (file details->content)
  • Added support for Windows 'Data Execution Prevention' security feature (Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista)
  • Added auto-sizezing of column widths to all list views (double clicking on column divider will size the column width appropriatly)
  • Added Options->Extended->Resolve shell links which lets eMule share 'linked' files (Windows Explorer shortcuts). This way one can also share single files within unshared directories.
  • Added support for previewing self extracting RAR archives.
  • Added: Downloaded files are marked in the same way as by 'Internet Explorer' which leads to showing a warning message from 'Windows' when opening potential malicious files (for Windows XP SP2 or later).
  • Added: Opening DRM protected files shows a warning message to prevent accidental opening of a web browser and navigating to malicious sites.
  • Added new ed2k link type: "ed2k://|search|[searchterm]|/" makes eMule start a search for the specified searchterm. Plugin for webbrowsers which make use of this will follow later
  • Windows 7: Added global progress bar in the eMule taskbar button, progress colors: green when downloading, red when a download is errorous, yellow otherwise
  • Windows 7: When hovering over the eMule taskbar button (connect/disconnect/throttle/unthrottle/open preferences)
  • Windows 7: Overlay icon on the eMule taskbar button indicating active up- and downloads (disabled by default, enable by ini entry "ShowUpDownIconInTaskbar=1").
  • Tweaked uploadcode to significantly increase the possible uploadspeed per slot especially on LANs, making eMule more suitable for those
  • Changed Kad to work better in small LANs.
  • 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 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
  • 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
  • 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)
  • Reworked the upload code and implemented better IO handling, which allows eMule to more efficiently handle high bandwidth lines, utilizing the full upload capacity (which means others can download faster)
  • Optional HTTPS protocol in Web Interface will protect remote control sessions
  • Added: mp4, mkv and ogg quick verification (thanks to Enig123)
  • IRC tabs - each tab now has a separate input and autocomplete
  • Added magnet links, basic parsing (file name, length, hash, AICH hash and sources)
  • Certificates for HTTPS may be created in Options
  • Support for searching collections in the web interface
