Shareaza 2.7 brings lots of fixes and improvements

Shareaza is a very powerful multi-network peer-to-peer ( P2P ) file-sharing client supporting Gnutella² ( G2 ), Gnutella ( G1 ), eDonkey2000 ( eMule ), DC++, HTTP, FTP and BitTorrent protocols for Windows (or Wine). Shareaza is FREE & contains NO Spyware or third-party products.

Shareaza includes the following features:

  • The ability to download the same file simultaneously from multiple networks.
  • Scheduler, which allows users to schedule tasks on Shareaza for a later period.
  • Media Player - unlike some peer-to-peer software's media players, Shareaza's completely bypasses corruption and merges file chunks into one, creating a previewable video from virtually any amount of downloaded segments. This does not include sound in MPEGs however.
  • Complete unicode support, as well as numerous translations.
  • The ability to 'skin' the interface, allowing users to change its appearance and more...

What's new in this version:

  • Fixed download size range of download properties dialogue.
  • New torrent codepage defaulted to UTF-8.
  • Set default chunk size to 256 KB (for compatibility).
  • Fixed garbage "hosts" from broken Web-caches.
  • Fixed adding sources to just downloaded file in library.
  • Implemented BTH adding to library file on torrent seeding.
  • Removed Discovery.EnableG1GWC option to help connecting when no Gnutella 1 UDP-cache can be found.
  • Fixed adding URLs with comma.
  • Fixed downloading from silent FTP-servers.
  • Fixed "disappearing" trackers.
  • Fixed "stuck at 99.9%" download.
  • Optimized source requests timings (ED2K, BT).
  • Optimized uploading file chunk size (now 1000 KB)
  • and much, much more (full release notes)

Didn't realise Shareaza was still about. Not torrented for years.

What's the best torrent client nowadays?

I just wish the original Napster was still about. I was on dial-up at the time and getting one track within 30 mins was considered worthy of celebration. Image what it'd be like on 120meg broadband.
