DC++ 0.7091

We are happy to announce that the new version of DC++ is available for download. It’s been about 5 months since the last stable release and numerous improvements and bug fixes come with this new version.

The most interesting GUI changes are as follows:

  • You can set the maximum width of the tabs as you like (no more truncated hub names)
  • Finished Uploads & Downloads windows are refined, from now you can filter to show only 100% finished downloads.
  • Added a popular option to always have a tray icon displayed for quick access
  • Numerous small improvements in the search window
  • DC++ should really remember the positions of all splitters, column orders and column sizes
  • Up-down control in the main status bar to change the number of upload slots quickly

Important bugs fixed :

  • Shell menus are restructured and loaded only if they needed. This also eliminates possible crashes when opening the shell menu under Vista.
  • In some cases it was impossible to add all the found sources to the queue from the search window
  • A possible crash if some ADL Search elements set to auto-download fixed
  • Fixed a possible lockup at start when the download queue has too many directories on Vista
  • Solved a problem which could cause crashes when tabs closed

Other changes and improvements :

  • Automatch queue for all search results is always on from now
  • Partial file list requests are visible in download queue so they can be deleted in case of connection problems
  • The whole Help file became translatable and a few partially translated Help files are added to the release. The localized Help file and tooltips are shown automatically according to the current locale settings

For the complete list of changes refer to the changelog.

Unlike the previous unstable release ( 0.708 ) this new version is tested and found highly stable. As usual it will be marked stable only after the two weeks public test period but the upgrade is recommended even before – especially for Vista users.

About emtee
I started to use DC using DC++ in 2003 when its version number was around 0.261. Since then I've been amazed by the DC network: a professional but still easy-to-use way of P2P file sharing. I was invited to the DC++ development team in 2006 where - in the beginning - I had been doing user support and testing only. A few years later I started to add small contributions to the DC++ code as well so these days I do mostly bug fixes, testing and improvements as well as I take part of the improvement of the documentation for both DC++ and ADCH++. I translated the whole DC++ help file to my native language (Hungarian) and currently maintaining the whole HU locale stuff for DC++. My ultimate goal is to help making the DC network as more user friendly as possible.

  1. After 0.708 and a long awaiting, finally 0.7091 looks promising. I hope that it works fine for most of the users (and also hoping that 0.7091-based mods release soon)
