Shareaza can connect to gnutella, G2, e Donkey and Bit Torrent.
Shareaza hashes its files for all networks, and then distributes those hash values on G2.
These filters increase the chances of getting the files the user wants and decrease the chance of getting malicious or fake files.
The file format used for the filters is an extendable XML schema.
Cropper is able to output images to a variety of formats.
There is an extensibility model allowing developers to create custom output plug-ins.
It is unknown how long I am going to still support it. Thanks to Let's Encrypt and to shiki (forum admin).
Also the mainsite is available as a git repo now for (almost) anyone to hack, fix bugs and maybe redesign. q Bittorrent v3.3.10 was released containing hotfixes.
This q Bittorent release uses API of 1.1.x that hasn't been released yet. Wait for 1.1.2 release, or build from RC_1_1 branch, or build against the 1.0.x series. As a result we switched off our forum to investigate. We didn't discover any evidence of unauthorized entry. And as you may have noticed from the v3.2.x series, we now have a healthy amount of devs contributing to it. This release finally fixes an obscure "hit-and-run" bug with trackers.
It's also great for writing documentation that needs images of your application or web site.
The basic Cropper UI A community plug-in project is available at Make your own, there is an sample class in the extras folder that you can use as a starting point.
This allows Shareaza to download one file from several networks at once.
When another client connected to G2 finds such a file, it is given the hash values for all networks and can search on the other networks with their respective hash values, which increases the number of sources and the download speed of the file.
