A new and important service release of DC++ is released today. It does not bring any new functions this time, instead, it fixes two severe and many less problematic but still annoying issues.
First of all, DC++ 0.782 fixes a massively reported startup crash on Windows 7. This is the most urgent fix as this problem makes DC++ unusable for some users. While it’s not exactly confirmed the problem more likely hits those who are already upgraded to Windows 7 SP1.
A long standing crash and memory leak problem is also fixed which caused DC++ to crash after several hours of running in specific hubs/scenarios.
Some less important but still welcomed fixes have also been applied as follows:
- Prevented a remote crash which could be triggered via malformed user commands from a hub
- The favorite hub window correctly obeys the color settings again
- A stricter failure check of the default MiniUPnP interface makes the success rate of the automatic connection type detection even higher
- Fixed a long standing hang on exit problem under WINE
The complete changelog for 0.782 shows you all the changes in detail. Immediate upgrade is recommended for everyone, especially for those who experience crashes or running DC++ on Windows 7.
