  • Fix to show that a download in 'Connecting...' status is really hitting more hosts, by adding 'Connecting (tried ## hosts)' after 15 hosts are tried.

  • Allow browse-host to work on yourself even if you're firewalled or in a private network.
  • Allow files resumed from the library to go to the proper directory for the file's mediatype.
  • Analyze all data files when starting to detect errors and ignore them, instead of failing to startup.
  • Fix many issues related to upload requests improperly being rejected.
  • Improve security of OOB replies.
  • Use a pool for deflater / inflater objects, reducing the amount of memory required for initiating connections, sending/reading query replies with XML, and sending/reading QRP tables.
  • Re-enable the magnetmix button by default.
  • Use the built-in XML parser instead of bundling an additional xerces parser.
  • Fix scanning for stalled uploads to reduce the number of 'watchdog' objects created.
  • Fix launching processes to display a message if the process failed to launch.
  • Add support for binding to a specific IP address when creating outgoing connections.
  • Internationalize the popupmenu from the system tray.
  • Force Windows icons to be refreshed when LimeWire takes a filetype association.

  • Update the splash screen.
  • Fix remembering the windows size, position & state so that if LimeWire is maximized, it will start maximized during the next session (instead of starting restored with a larger window).
  • Optimize the tooltip in the statusbar bandwidth indicator to be lazily calculated.
  • Disable renaming when multiple files are selected in the library.

  • Optimized storage-space required for URNs (SHA1 hashes).
  • Convert many things to an 'enum' for better type-safety.
  • Prevent a socket connect with no timeout from potentially waiting forever.
  • Optimize the collection of many small writes to a TCP socket into a single larger write.
  • Fix reading with a read-throttle enabled to reduce massive CPU usage.
  • Optimize events in the I/O thread so that events causing data to be read/written will happen before the throttle is informed of time-elapsing, allowing the data to be read/written faster.
