Hey Guys been awhile since i went on the offensive ragtagging the remarkable sites i found regarding DC++ development well this time i found a site called oldversion.com
oldversion.com tell the users that updating isnt a good thing that the user should not do it..
“Sometimes upgrading to a newer version can be a good thing. Other times, your computer may not be compatible with the new version, the new version is bloated, or all the options you liked are no longer available.” – Oldversion.com
Their latest recommended version is 0.674 and the registrant is godaddy guess that means gofigure since its probably not godaddy thats behind the site just as a domain registrant.. now we do not recommend any user to actually take their advice and not update since that can resolve in alot of unwanted issues like tth corruption, openssl exploits, adcget exploits, etc etc.
“We believe that every computer user has the right to use a version of the product that he or she is most comfortable with, not the one dictated by the software developer, so we provide access to the files that are no longer obtainable.” – oldversion.com
in anycase i just wanted to show it of since it was funny didnt think that such sites existed, sure its good to have a mirror site but we do however want the mirror sites to be updated if they wanna host older versions fine but don’t tell em not to downgrade to em. Our co-lab with filehippo is a fine example of how we want it to work so our hats goes of to em.
- Official Website – http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net
- Company – N/A
- Current Version – 0.674
if they was serious about mirroring they could atleast update it to 0.770 instead of saying that 0.674 was the current version..
