New Version With Ipv6 Support
Posted 21 December 2016 - 11:37 PM
I have been occational user of the emule for the previous decade. I ever wondered why there was no new version for this solution including some needed features such as IPv6!
As this software generates LOW ID for users behind NAT, enabling IPv6 makes more users able to share using High ID.
Would there be any other version for the software soon or not?

The most important and practical one: Currently there is not enough development power for the official version to implement such such a major feature. Related to that is the fact that there are unsolved problems: Servers won't support IPv6 (because the server software isn't developed anymore) and for Kad's DHT IPv6 is a security problem (the current one relies on IPs being a scarce ressource to prevent an attacker from impeding / overtaking the network / routing tables and IPv6 isn't scarce anymore). Those issues could most likely be solved - with enough time.
Some mods have done their own implementations already which work, but don't solve the Kad problem (which won't become obvious until it's juicy enough for an attacker to exploit the weakness - so untill the majority of Kad has switched).
