Emule

Postby quicksilver » Sun Jan 09, 2005 4:44 am

I tested this client out today and it seems to work although it was a bit like its namesake ,Stubborn :D. Its an open sourced program, and you can get it here

http://prdownloads.sf.net/emule/eMule0. ... taller.exe

What is eMule?
At dawn of May 13th 2002 a guy called Merkur was dissatisfied with the original eDonkey2000 client and was convinced he could do better. So he did. He gathered other developers around him, and eMule Project was born. Their aim was to put the client back on track where eDonkey had been famous before, adding tons of new features and a nice GUI.

As of today, eMule is one of the biggest and most reliable peer-to-peer file sharing clients around the world. Thanks to it's open source policy many developers are able to contribute to the project, making the network more efficient with each release.

What does eMule mean?
The name "eMule" comes from an animal called "Mule" which is somehow similar to a donkey ;)

How often is eMule updated?
eMule is not updated regularly, but at the moment the frequencies are between 1 and 3 weeks. Don't take this for guaranteed. :)

A list of a few features available.

-Clients use several networks to create one reliable network. (ED2K, Source Exchange, Kad). Kad is now in an open testphase, eMule v0.42 can be enabled to use Kad
-eMule's Queue and Credit system helps to ensure that everyone will get the file he wants by promoting those that upload back to the network.
-eMule is completely free. eMule is also completely free of any Adware, Spyware, and ect. We do this for fun and knowledge, not for money.
-Each file checked for corruptions while downloading to ensure an error free file.
The eMules Intelligent Corruption Control helps to speed up the correction of corrupted parts.
-Auto priorities and Source management allows you to start many downloads without having to monitor them.
-The Preview function allows you to look at your Videos and Archives before they are completed. For video previewing, we recommend the Video Lan Client.
-The eMule features webservices and a webserver that allows you to have quick access to and from the internet.
-You can create categories for your download to organize them.
To find the file you want, eMule offers a wide range of search possibilities which include: Servers (Local, and Global), web based (Jigle, and Filedonkey), and Kad (Still in Alpha).
-eMule also allows you to use very complex Boolean searches that make the searches much more flexible.
-With the messaging and friend system, you can send messages to other Clients and add them as friends. In your friend list, you can always see if a friend is online.
-With the build in IRC client, you can chat with other downloaders and chatters around the globe


This page contains all the accesories , plug-ins and help files you could ever want
http://www.emule-project.net/home/perl/ ... m=download

Ok my opinion on it is that you can see that this is a "programmers" program as it has so much information available to the user maybe too much for the average user, and this will mean that it wont get the widespread usage (or tons of files ) of joe public ( you and me :D )
I,m no fool but it took me a while to figure out where to share my files and I think for new users the Que and Credit System in use counts against them and makes them not receive the priority they may wish for (yes thats right a bit slower for new users !)
All in all it worked fine and I did receive files , theres no spyware and I liked the location feature as this gave me the satisfaction of knowing I was sharing with the world :D

Seems Microsoft has a patch that affects this program so you may wish to obtain this from here, otherwise your downloads will start to crawl.

http://forums.cricketmx.com/download.php?id=532

This will tell you all about it.

http://www.cdfreaks.com/news/10387

The patch was designed to slow down malicous programs like worms but affects ordinary users of P2P. :(

eMule 0.49c

Dear eMule users,

in the 7th year anno eMule we are once again happy to present you a new version: eMule 0.49c. As the name indicates, this version is mostly a maintance version concentrating on fixing all the problems and bugs you reported, implementing requested improvements and of course keeping Kad updated.

Out of those many smaller changes, the most noticeable are:

* Ability to share and unshare single files instead of directories only and also support of Drag&Drop to do so easily
* Support of new security features on Windows Vista (and partially also XP) to further harden eMule against any possible exploits
* Automatic recovery of corrupt part.met files by using the backupfiles
* Kad improvements like automatic search-keyword rearranging (allowing searches like 'an eMule' and also helping to reduce load on busy nodes), avoiding fragmented UDP packets (making it more compatible to zealous firewalls) and other changes
* Improving UPnP by refreshing the mappings as well as adding Webinterface support
* And as always fixing bugs and adding other small changes

For all the details, check out the complete changelog below!

eMule 0.50a
Release date: April 7, 2010
It has been a long ride, but now we are finally halfway there :) We are once again happy to present you a new shiny version: eMule 0.50a. Many small but nonetheless important fixes and changes were made, but the main features of this new version are:

* Making eMules file verifying algorithm future proof by combining the ed2k hash with the AICH hash to identify and verify downloaded parts and files. This guarantuees that existing and newly found MD4 weaknesses will not affect eMules ability to deliver uncorrupted files in the future.
* Several GUI improvements, like supporting new taskbar features of Windows7, easier access to download commands by adding a new toolbar, an improved shared files dialog and a brand new Kad graph to look and wonder at
* Better usability in small LANs by adjusting Kad to such an environment and supporting highspeed uploads
* And as always fixing bugs and adding other small changes

For all the details, check out the complete changelog below!
