To gain more testing of this release, we hand out a Beta version of the coming 0.50b. We expect the Beta phase to last longer than usual and it should be quite stable (for a beta), so users who prefer to use the most current version are encouraged to update and try it out.

Note: A Beta version will more likely crash than a release, because it doesn't ignores any (even smaller) errors in order to make it possible for us to find and fix them.


About 0.50b:

Dear eMule users,

it has been a few weeks months years since the last eMule version saw the light of the day, but finally a successor is about to be completed. As the name indicates 0.50b is a more of a maintenance release, focusing on bugfixes and smaller improvements. The most important one is the reworking of the upload code and better IO handling, which allows eMule to more efficiently handle high bandwidth lines, utilizing the full upload capacity (which means others can download faster). Other changes include optimized internal handling of the AICH hashes, the replacement of the (defunct) Filedonkey search option with the ContentDB and the update of used libraries, like miniupnpc making UPnP compatible with more devices. And of course as always quite a few minor bugfixes and changes.

A note to developers: The "official" development IDE has changed from VS2003 to VS2008.

You can download the new version here:

In my opinion, that's what the project needs at the moment. I think there is only one developer available so it would be a cool way to work together in the project, it would be easier to report bugs, etc...

I agree with Avi-3k, it seems smart to me.
At least netfinity compiled his mod with it.

I second that!

eMule should really use some modern IDE :D

We can play at home with whatever versions of VS, but there are two serious questions; and those would be: minimum OS required to install, and target OS.
For example, VS2010 is the last that could be installed in WinXP.

For target OS see here.
VS2005 was the last one supporting Win98 and WinME.
VS2008 was the last one supporting Win2000
Since VS2010 the minimum target is XP.

In DownloadListCtrl.cpp line 1402 apparently must be
if (content!=NULL && content->type==UNAVAILABLE_SOURCE)

to avoid possibility of crash.

If I'm not mistaken, conditional block at lines 463-490 in RoutingZone.cpp could be made two times shorter:
bool CRoutingZone::CanSplit() const
{
#ifdef _BOOTSTRAPNODESDAT
	if (Kademlia::CKademlia::GetRoutingZone()->GetNumContacts() < 2000)
		return true;
#endif

	// Max levels allowed.
	if (m_uLevel >= 127)
		return false;

	// Check if this zone is allowed to split.
	if ( (m_uZoneIndex < KK || m_uLevel < KBASE) && m_pBin->GetSize() == K)
		return true;
	return false;
}

with VS2013 you can still compile with XP compatibility, using target v120_xp.

Nice. :flowers: Do you have any plans for reviewing default settings ? (like UPnP, safe .dat/.met writing etc...)

Line 2941 in DownloadListCtrl.cpp has two identical checks; either first or second expression should be omitted:
if (pCtrlItem != NULL && pCtrlItem && pCtrlItem->type == FILE_TYPE)

There aren't any plans yet, but of course everything is open to discussion / suggestions (in its own threads please).

Taking UPnP, I do think it's fine the way it currently is - it's rude altering any computer / router settings without asking the user first and the First-Time-Wizzard has a prominent button to test/enable UPnP right on the second page.

There are new Windows versions, and that should be taken into account, even though old code still does the necessary minimum.

1) For example Otherfunctions.h file, where history ends with
#define	_WINVER_S2008_	0x0601	// 6.1

2. Unidentified smart heads in M$ decided to break compatibility in API for getting Windows version - https://msdn.microso...v=vs.85%29.aspx
For example, in Windows 8.1 64-bit existing eMule's function GetWindowsVersion() returns 0x0601.

I think that should be solved on a more general level - see this message.

PS. In your case it is menu items, not buttons.
