opps - time to swap to the new version then,.


!Because of an included security fix, an upgrade to this version is recommended.

bluecow: Added dialog for showing the eD2K meta data for search results, download files and shared files. The according context menu item is only in "Advanced mode" available.
.: Added some new checks and fixes in order to ban unfair clients
.: Changed the TCP (local) and UDP (global) source search for clients who are downloading many files, to make some server software happy one more time and to avoid blacklisting
.: Unused credits are removed after 5 month (to limit the memory usage for credits)
bluecow: Server error messages are no longer displayed in the server info window, but in the application log window.
bluecow: ED2K file meta data received during a file search is filtered before adding it to the part.met and eventually to the known.met file to avoid storing of not needed data.
bluecow: Several changes in the file preview command: The preview command is enabled, if a minimum of 16 KB (MPEG audio/video) or 256 KB at the beginning of the file is available. The preview command is also enabled for files of type "CD-ROM image" or if the ED2K meta data indicates an audio/video file type. To enable the new features of the preview command specify VideoLAN client as the video player for preview or (if using some other player) specify the 'PreviewSmallBlocks=1' (section=eMule) setting in the preferences.ini file and disable the 'Create backup for preview' option.
Ornis: better counting of the stats: saved by ICH, lost due to corruption and saved by compression

bluecow: Added sending of extracted meta data and audio/video characteristics for MP3,AVI,MPEG and other files to servers and clients. The text meta data (e.g. Title, Author, Album) is not sent to the servers but to clients when viewing the shared files. Data sent to servers includes audio/video codec, media length and bitrate.
bluecow: More safety in checking shareable files in temporary directory.
bluecow: Added new Server Info window with optional auto scroll, rotating log, copy+paste
bluecow: Added new option to specify or to disable the server UDP port (file=preferences.ini, section=eMule, name=ServerUDPPort, value=0 (disable server UDP port), value=65535 (default; use random server UDP port), value= (UDP port)
bluecow: Added some helpful server socket error messages.

bluecow: Disabled sharing (by accident) of eMule installation folders (config, lang, webserver) and several files from the temporary directory.
bluecow: Fixed a rare problem where a client could receive properly compressed blocks but was though not capable of decompressing the entire compressed stream.
Ornis: Fixed Drag&Drop-image of downloadfiles

btw,. it might be good for popular files you are downloading / sharing to add a comment telling people about the security issues with emule versions less than 30.a and set the file rating to 'invalid / corrupt' - hopefully people will get the message
