today ten years ago, eMule came to be. A decade . What are ten years in the internet and tech sphere?
Let's see: 10 years and 20 months ago, eDonkey2000 was released. 7 months before eMule, the first iPod hit the stores. 2 years after eMule Facebook was founded and Youtube didn't exist for another year. A decade ago the most used home desktop OS was Windows 98, AOL was a common ISP and mobile phones were used to make calls instead of shooting birds around
So times sure change, but eMule trudges along like any good mule would do. And so we are happy to celebrate its 10th birthday today. It wouldn't have been possible without the support of countless people over the years, starting at you our users to the translators, debuggers, board moderators, modders, supporters, graphic artists and of course the developers who have joined and moved on over the years. Thank you.
How will eMule's journey continue? We hope to continue working on eMule to keep it running and up-to-date. This means for the most part we will fix existing bugs which pop up, make sure eMule works well on new released versions of Windows, implement detail improvements to its core mechanics and interface and react on upcoming events in the Kad network like fighting spam. We do not expect to make many major changes in eMule anymore, like we did when adding Kad because eMule has become a mature software and the development time available is not as plentiful as it was 5 years ago anymore. In this spirit we hope to release the next version in a few months.
So lets look ahead to the next 10 years - after all, mules can get well over 50 years old
Your eMule Team
