Dear eMule users,

This version is mainly a security update for 2 severe issues: A security issue in zlib 1.2.2 was found, which is used by eMule and can at least be used to crash eMule. A second bug allows to crash eMule clients with a malformed Kad-Packet (only if Kad is enabled)
We recommend to upgrade to 0.46c as soon as possible.


As review, some major points of the 0.46(a-c) releases are:
  • Lots of bugfixes
  • Collections: you can create, view and use collections for eMule, to bundle a number of files virtually together and use this to define a set of files. A set that can be signed to ensure the origin.
  • Reworked Shares files window, containing a tree of shared items - for more overview and control
  • Multiple temp-folders with automatic selection on download start
  • Visual fixes and improvements
For all the details, check out the complete changelog below!


Win9x users only:
The following has to be installed on Win9x/ME only -- it enables the Unicode functionality for eMule on those OSes.
Microsoft Layer for Unicode on Windows 95/98/ME Systems (MSLU) version 1.0

So - download the new eMule client - and have fun. :)

Your eMule-Team

----------------------
.: The upload limit and capacity as well as the downloadlimit will now be set to unlimited by default
.: When the uploadcapacity is set to unlimited (0), USS will be automatically enabled to determinate the best uploadspeed
.: If using the prio default capacity (16KB), the new version will reset it (one time) to the new default unlimited
zz: UploadSpeedSense will at most raise speed 30 KBytes/s above current upload speed. This will prevent it from raising to very high limits if your client can't upload fast enough to reach the limit due to no clients in queue.
zz: Bugfix+enhancement to the code that requests less of the file from slow download sources. Will now only activate this code if there's little enough left of the file to complete.
Ornis: Resizeable collection windows
Ornis: added some USS localisations
Unk: Some cpu fixes for Kad. (Kry)
Unk: Changed how we maintain contacts for kad.
Unk: Kad node lookup algo modified to use far less overhead with better results.

.: Fixed some minor general GUI glitches (Icons, save&restore, etc)

----------------------
- July, 1. 2005    -
----------------------
Unk: Some users complained that the "Users | Files" box wasn't large enough for their lang. Double clicking that box now pulls up MyInfo with user/file counts included.
Unk: Added some extra info to the full screen MyInfo box. (Parts based on Morph mod)

----------------------
- June, 28. 2005    -
----------------------
zz: Removed "Automatically Swap All (A4AF) Sources To This File" menu item. For the same effect, raise download priority on the file instead. See Web Help&Support -> Features -> Source Management
zz: When downloading from a really slow source, request less of the file at a time. This locks less of the file, so if there's a faster source available we have a better chance of downloading from it even when the file is almost completely downloaded.
Unk: Basic Collection framework and gui (see documentation for detailed information on this)
.: Improved Collection Gui.
.: Collections are now properly signed/verfied. If verifying failes, the authorname and key are removed
.: Downloadrequests for collections will bypass the downloadqueue and served immediately
.: Added splitter control to the shared files window
.: Changed the apperearence of the splitter slightly

----------------------
.: Extended the "Run as unprivleged User" function: If starting with the eMule-Account fails (for example because of lacking privileges)
    eMule will restart as the same users but with reduced privileges (but same file permissions).
This helps users which are already working with an Non-Admin account to improve the security a bit more

Ornis: minimule shows now count of all completed files, in all categories [by TED]

Ornis: splitterbar for the serverwindow
Ornis: reworked dialog lists setup save&restore:

----------------------
- June, 10. 2005    -
----------------------
Ornis: added support of multiple tempfolders (to seperate by  |  ). A tempfolder out of several is selected when adding a download, depending on the incomingfolder (category) and most free space. (temppath can not (yet) be changed lateron)

Unk: Fixed a possible memleak with Kad Notes.

----------------------
- May, 28. 2005      -
----------------------

----------------------
- May, 21. 2005      -
----------------------
zz: Fixed underflow error for "Shared parts" column in Shared files list, which caused parts to sometimes be shown as light blue even when they are common in the net.

----------------------
- May, 19. 2005      -
----------------------
zz: Bugfix to UploadSpeedSense (USS). Sometimes with low ping times and low Ping Tolerance settings it could get stuck at min speed.
zz: USS now detects when max ul limit is raised in prefs, and goes into "fast reaction mode" for a short while to quickly find out if it can raise the limit.
zz: When using several pings (tweak prefs setting), USS now uses median value instead of average value. This removes some of the randomness in the ping times to better see the trend and give a more stable speed. About 1-8 pings recommended.
zz: Slightly changed colors in "Shared parts" (fka "Obtained parts") column in shared files list:
      White = You don't have the part.
      Red  = You are the only one known to have/share this part. Please don't unshare the file.
      Blue  = You and others are sharing this part; the lighter blue, the less people sharing it.
      Black = You have this part, but its availability in the net is unknown (i.e noone have asked you for this file yet, and you are not downloading it)

----------------------
- May, 16. 2005      -
----------------------
.: Some modifications to avoid disapearing Search Parameters window.
.: Added new functions for PreviewApps.dat file. After the command line several parameters (separted by ';') can be specified:
Ext=<file extension> (the command will be invoked only for the specified file extension, specify several "Ext" commands for more extensions)
MinSize=<bytes> (min. completed part file size to enable the preview command)
MinStart=<bytes> (min. completed part file size from the start of the file to enable the preview command)

----------------------

----------------------

----------------------

Ornis: filesize limit of fileupload via webinterface can now be set in the preferences.ini, Section [WebServer] :  "MaxFileUploadSizeMB=5"  (or 0 for no limit)

----------------------

.: Added new macros to webservices:
#name inserts the filename without extension
#cleanname inserts the cleaned up filename without extension
#cleanfilename inserts the cleaned up filename
.: Fixed a problem with registering eD2K links to be taken by eMule.
zz: Improved a4af code to work better for No Needed Part sources. Earlier code could make a source get stuck on a high prio NNP file even if there were other files (with lower prio) that weren't NNP.

----------------------
- May, 7. 2005      -
----------------------
.: Servers with a failure count of >= 2 or with a failure count which exceeds the specified one are shown in gray shades in server list control

Ornis: fixed some bugs in the webinterface ( category change, javascript problems for some languages, speedbar percentage display,
      saving timeout from preferences, mixed priority assignment for servers)

----------------------
- May, 6. 2005      -
----------------------

I'm still online with the Beta you released.
What has changed since then (except for the MediaInfo DLL)?
Should I replace the Beta with this version?

On july 24th I downloaded and installed v0.46c BETA.
Today a new version is released. I was wondering if something important has changed (security or something).
So my question was really: do I need to install this version if I'm using the BETA?

Great,but i noticed you removed the 1024/256 ADSL speed from the list of connections :( Why is so? It was present in 0.46b,but not anymore in 0.46c...

All of the security related patches were done in the beta. The only major change I've seen in this version is the upload bandwidth throttler. I'm still trying to understand what changed, though :P

So what? When using the wizard you can choose custom speeds - you don't have to choose from the list. Or set it manually later.

yeah.. good job for e-mule 0.46c. I was posted a comment at E-Mule 0.46c beta forum for complain about the E-Mule Chinese Simplified Version 0.46b (The virus found were ACLAYER.DLL and ACLAYER.EXE) also in the Simplified Chinese version 0.46a. (The E-mule developer should be more responsible!)
Most of people are using the buggies e-mule 0.46a and 0.46b right now.

I want to emphasized on the program "Uploading" Improvement is same important as "Downloading" If some other people using the e-mule version that possessed a problem of uploading, then how do other people receive the files.

I notice not much improvement in my download speed, most possible the other people uploading process got some problems. How do I get the source files from them. STOP using buggies e-mule 0.46a and 0.46b.

One thing, before the administrator release the final version of software. It should be properly tested. If the virus is already entered in our system. Then we seek for remedy it is too late. The e-mule uploading should be fixed on 20K for most of the broadband. If no people uploading the files, then from where we can get the better source?

The E-Mule version should put stable release just like what open office done.
Such like Version 1.1 Stable Release.

"DONT SEEK FOR REMEDY ONLY PROBLEM FOUND, DO MORE ON PREVENTION."
Hope there are a lot of improvement with E-Mule version 0.46d or 0.47 in the future!

Regards,
viperiii
