Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Release notes for 3.4.0 prepared

Hi,

I prepared sample release notes for Phex 3.2.2 in the sourceforge project.

SourceForge.net: Phex - P2P Gnutella filesharing program

Best wishes,
Arne

The next Phex version will be 3.2.2

I just thought that it might be useful to post the release notes here, too. No use in excluding anyone who doesn't have access to the sourceforge project...

Release Notes
On the surface, this release mostly features noticeably improved networking code, due to which the thread usage for network connections dropped by about 40%.

One of the effects of this change is, that Phex can now handle 99 UP2UP connections with ease, as tested in two performance tests:
- http://wiki.phex.org/Phex_Performance

The second visible change are two new translations: Spanish and Mexican. (thanks go to LuisC-SM!)

Also we added a "nasty file filter", which should hide most (but surely not all) really nasty files, so you don't accidentally download things most people really don't want to see.

Not showing on the outside, abstractions from the i2p integration (i2phex branch) were ported to the main release, and even deeper below the surface, the code structure is being gradually adapted, to create a better Phex API, which allows other developers to easily use code from Phex as backend for their programs.

And as usually many Bugs where found and fixed.

As a sidenote, the startup wizard now prompts, if you want to subscribe to the Polar Skulk, a feed of free files served via Gnutella, and the served files get downloaded into a subdirectory of the download folder so they don't disturb regular downloads.

If you want to follow the development of Phex more closely, you can build Phex directly from our subversion repository:
- Information: http://wiki.phex.org/Subversion


Changelog
- GUI: Spanish and Mexican translations added (thanks to LuisC-SM).
- GUI: Search Filter: Default Rule added: Hide Nasty Files.
- GUI: Decentral Content Distribution panel added to welcome wizard.
- GUI: Add option to shared files export to export only selected files.

- CORE: Magma-Lists now download to a subdir of the default download dir.
- CORE: Integrated DestAddress from i2phex which allows other forms of ID
beside IPs.
- CORE: Use of shared threads for network connections reduced threads by
approx. 40%

- FIXED: When browsing a host a blocked URN caused a connection abort.
- FIXED: Scanning of shared files crashed when a new directory was added.
- FIXED: Removed a possible deadlock situation during read/write lock handling.
- FIXED: Problems with available range set handling when download file size is
unknwon are solved.
- FIXED: A running file rescan throws errors when shared directories are
changed concurrently.
- FIXED: Download file preview was not possible if file beginning was not
verified yet.
- FIXED: File size unit in search quick filter resets to 'bytes' when toggling
through search tabs. (Bug: #1799473)
- FIXED: NPE on Mac OS X when displaying HTML text.
- FIXED: Turkish language file issue

There are 3 remarks I must make:

1. Previewing a file does not work in linux. I suppose the app must launch a player?

2. when selecting Menu Settings>Filtered Ports, displays a window which is not localized 'cause there is no available text for it (missing).

3. During the translation of the Phex, I found some text that was meant to set up the fonts in GUI. Is this going to be a feature for a future release?

Other than that, I'm very new to Phex and my critics would be very inaccurate due to my short knowledge of the app.

Kind Regards

Luis C. Suárez

1: Do you have mplayer installed? IIRC Phex launches mplayer for me when I preview.

2: I now made the text inside the FilteredPorts dialog localizeable (though I wasn't able to get the text inside the buttons).
You can find it Lang.properties - the strings beginning with FilteredPorts_

3: Didn't know that... seems Gregor did some things there I didn't see (I'm sure there are quite a few of them ).

But especially since you're new to Phex, your critics are very welcome, because you didn't yet get used to the current state, so you can see it less biased.

I've been using Phex for 5 years, now, and I'm so used to having it behave as it does, that I don't see weaknesses anymore.

So, if you see anything that bugs you, please submit a bug report!

Yes, I do... I also have rhythmbox, totem, vlc and gxine (using gnome btw)

Ok, I'' see what I can do to get it done fast as hell

Well, I really hope this is a future feature. All java apps that I've ever used, lack of this feature and the reason why I never used Limewire/Frostwire was because the text is unreadable in my 1680x1050 monitor. I have always used gtk-gnutella (since long time ago) but after I found Phex, I really love the time to DL files and the GUI.
Even when text is small, I can read it =).

Kind Regards

Luis

Other than the 2 comments above, Nothing really bugs about Phex =)....hmmm except for the fact that I don't get an icon on the system tray when closing it... but I believe this is some gtk integration problem,... considering the mature of Phex, I believe this will be a future feature for us gnome linux users.

Cheers

Luis

PS. Too bad I ain't no coder... There are hundreds of things I'd like to be involved in linux but I ain't got keine scripting knowledge... maybe a little shell scripting but that only helps me to sort some things around my everyday pc usage.

EDIT: By "considering the mature of Phex" I never meant to say that Phex is a matureness application, on the contrary. I more or less meant to say YOUNG ;=) ...
EDIT2: I've installed Phex on a M$WinXP . The integration is just perfect everything works as it should.. too bad I don't use it (joke.. I love linux)

There was an idea to integrate a java library which would take care of the system tray (I don't have it in KDE either).

And I can't really code that much Java either - I mostly do an advanced form of copy and paste...

But free projects don't only need coders (even though more coders is almost always good), and so I can contribute and do something useful, too

Just an idea....
Frostwire is also a Java GPL OS project...
Why not borrowing a little code ? ;=) (After all, it's also a matter of copying and paste )
They have fully systray integration...

Kind Regards
