The new version of DC++ is out ( probably the last one in 2007 ). You can find it here .
As in a previous blog post, this new version adds the Coral distributed network hublists, which will make sure you have a working hublist in your client.
Also, this version brings ( more or less ) the compatibility with ADC 1.0 . This means that the protocol BASE feature is advertised ( instead of the BAS0 revision ). UCMDs ( the ADC’s User commands extension ) is also advertised in the initial SUP string protocol, so DC++ users can now use the commands given by ADC hubowners ( hubsofts should start implementing ) . This also means that 0.704 will use the protocol string ADC/1.0 when trying to download. Don’t worry, you can still download from older versions because the 0.10 protocol string is still kept ( same goes about the INF flags OP, RG… ). The only compatibility that is really breaked is the password sending because the hash the client must send in 1.0 is slightly different ( see differences between ADC 1.0 and 0.10 ).
0.704 includes more fixes that everybody wanted to have as soon as possible, these include : closing tabs with mid-mouse button, chat focusing all the time, hub name printed to main window title.
The segmented downloading crashes are now fixed .
On top of all, enjoy your new version.
