Hamachi gives you LAN over the Internet. Virtually any application that works over local/home networks can also be used over Hamachi networks. Think - Windows File Sharing, iTunes, Remote Desktop, Remote Assistance or even gaming - all fully encrypted, authenticated and peer-to-peer. Hamachi is a zero-configuration virtual private networking application with an open security architecture and NAT-to-NAT traversal capabilities. Hamachi is the first application to mix seemingly unrelated networking technologies in one powerful package to deliver an unprecedented level of direct peer-to-peer connectivity. Hamachi is secure. All Hamachi communications are encrypted and authenticated with industry-standard algorithms and protocols. Nobody will be able to see what two Hamachi peers are talking about. However what is equally important - Hamachi security architecture is completely open meaning that its detailed description is available to anyone interested for review and validation.
- Added notifications in a form of system tray balloons; this feature can be turned off via hamachi-override.ini
- Added an option of enabling diagnostic log from the Preferences, System page. Maximum log size defaults to 16 Megs, split into two 8 MB files. The size and the verbosity of the log file is controlled via hamachi-override.ini
- Added new languages - Croatian and Hungarian. Serbian is on its way.
- Updated a number of existing translations
- Modified Hamachi adapter driver to use stack space more rationally; all bulky temporary variables are now allocated off the stack
- Modified the installer to put Hamachi adapter _last_ on Windows' "adapter binding list"
- Modified the installer to disable "DNS updates" on Hamachi adapter, which is another way of saying that 5.x.x.x address should NOT now be getting an A record if the machine's running a DNS server
- Modified the installer to set DefaultGateway on the Hamachi adapter to 126.96.36.199 and its InterfaceMetric - to 9000. This Vista-specific fix; non-Vista installations are not affected
- Fixed "stuck in a reconnecting mode" issue
- Fixed UPnP code to understand broken dialects of HTTP/1.1 spoken by some home routers
- Fixed local value of peer's MAC address being different from the value used by the peer itself (affects IPX connectivity)
- Fixed "Failed to connect to the adapter" problem by
- making Hamachi select any suitable adapter if the default one is not available
- making the installer force Windows to name all newly added items in a Network Connections folder (affects machines that do not use Windows Explorer as a default shell)
- Fixed the problem with per-peer information not being saved properly when Hamachi is running as a service
- Fixed the problem with "Block Vulnerable Services" option not working properly
- Fixed cosmetic UI issues (language, wording, formatting, etc)
