Finally! A new kMule release has arrived :ph34r:
We mainly fixed some small problems and improved existing features. See the changelog for details.
What are you waiting for? kMule is even better, now! :punk:
Oh and a word to our translators: please note the new variables that will allow you to link your name and homepage in kMule - you deserve it!

Have fun with the improved kMule,

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

Waiting time has ended - here's a new kMule release! :clap:
We simplified the GUI even more... at least that's what we think. We replaced the old "Low ID"/"High ID" terms by "Firewalled" and "Open", cleaned up the directories dialog, joined "Messages" and "Security", the splash screen now shows the current IP filter loading progress and you can extract the proxy parameters from IE simply by clicking a button.
kMule now has the nice option to automatically extract downloaded archives (we ship the 7za.dll for that) and additionally we took further care of WINE users. As kMule is pretty popular among Linux users, we fixed another potential crash cause - check out the details in our changelog!

As always, here's the download links:

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

Just a quick update this week, I won't write much about it - sorry, but I'm sick :ph34r:
Fixed the reported issues and changed the upload system... and included a completely new feature (custom searches) - see the changelog for details.

As always, here's the download links:

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

Again, tux and I are proud to present another kMule release. We reverted some libraries so the GUI glitches some ppl experienced are gone. Additionally, kMule will run under XP again :angelnot:
I added hashing progress and improved file hash by hashing small files first (so they can be shared faster).
Because some ppl had upload issues, we reverted the upload mechanism... hopefully it works for you, now :flowers:

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

tuxman and I are proud to present the first version of kMule.
Before anything else, we want to thank the developers of eMule for the base and all beta-testers for their commitment.

Our goal was to create a lighter client - in two senses.
On the one hand we removed quite a lot of ballast from the eMule base and on the other hand we tried to make the client as simple as possible to make it possible for every user to experience P2P.
We included a lot of features but nearly all of them are "invisibly" working for you - if you want to know more, you should check out the changelog. :)

You can download the new client via *mule:

Have fun with kMule and keep feeding it so that it may grow :D

@tHeWiZaRdOfDoS and Tux

thanks for slotfocus added. It was a good bet.I'm using mod seems reasonable, have to take to be good mod



It would be even better if it were part of mephisto tweaks .. multichunks and stuff .. I really like that part of that mod, if I could add something identical kmule was very nice.

PS: Add: QR:colors the queue rank tanks

kMule is intended to be lightweight, though we are open for suggestions... if a feature seems to make sense for most users, we may add it :flowers:

Wiz, you got my attention now :) It was about freakin time someone made KAD only client. I've been using stock eMule with KAD only for years. Will check it out right now :)

Wiz, i just have few recommendations. You made it with idea of being simple to use, i'd take that a notch further, but not too far...

- Main menu split panel
Disable it by default and set it to "Downloads" as default menu, most users don't really care what they share, they just care what they download.
So, client will still upload stuff on its own but you just won't see it. You can still set it to split and any other
And also remove the sidebar toolbar with controls (as default). It'll make it look less cluttered and i find right clicking individual downloads is much more comfortable than using side controls.

- "Download" button in Search panel is a bit broken (darker frame around it)

- Remove "Messages" function all together... does anyone even use it? At least i don't know anyone that would ever use it...

- Set progress bar style to a more "flat" style by default. The last two round levels are weird because they have too much black on top and bottom

- Add ability to disable sorting based on "Invalid/Fake/Corrupt". I prefer to sort it based on Availability and it sorts them all messed up at the moment and doesn't entirely obey the Availability column...

- I'd also re-arrange the main buttons like this (for default out of the box setting):
Statistics | Search, Downloads, Shared, Messages | Options, Tools, Help

It would look much better this way.

- Add ability to disable verbose status reporting in the bottom left corner where kMule displays various messages. I get a lot of useless data there that just clutters up the interface and i don't realyl care about that info.

- Add ability to automatically hide "FAKE" files from search results list. So you don't even have to check what the status of the file is, they won't even appear at all.

Agreed.

? No idea, have to check that...

This is used occasionally - especially during releases :)

That's a matter of taste, personally, I like the default style :flowers:

I don't know... maybe as a pref option - maybe! - the spam sorting is pretty accurate.

I think stats is one of the least used entries - at least for the common user. IHMO the windows - considering their importance - should be "Downloads, Search, Shared, Messages, Options, Stats, Tools, Help" - though I don't know, maybe we will actually change the default layout.

Basically, you could disable verbose logging :angelnot:

Hm, yes, that might be interesting :thumbup:


Thx for the feedback :flowers:

Yeah, some are maybe my personal taste and the past experience with interface designs in general. Main eMule problem is that it's just too fiddly out of the box and thats what turns off many new users. Thats why your kMule has a good start, because it's pretty basic by design and does most of the complicated stuff automatically (nodes download, IP filters download, upload auto sensing, auto connects to the KAD etc). First run wizard may scare off some users but in general it's pretty straight forward. If it's basic out of the box but still allows advanced users to enable advanced stuff later, it's all good. the other way around is usually more problematic.

I'd also replace current KAD status icon in the bottom right corner with a plain green, yellow and red orb, like the ones found in Daan-Kad1 skin. It's more obvious without any hunting for the arrows color and it just looks better.

GREEN = KAD Connected
YELLOW = KAD Firewalled
RED = KAD Disconnected

Well, I do think Statistics a important interface to know your U/D information in current session and also your network streaming or chokes.
In personnal, the most frequently used buttons are:
"Kad, Server"(These two removed), Shared, Statistics, Downloads, Search.

Split-window mode re-enables itself automatically every time i start kMule which is a bit annoying...
