Feature Requests sorted and summarized
This is a short list of feature requests for Phex. I sorted it according to what I think most important. Feel free tpo discuss it in this thread and to add new feature requests in here (I'll put them into the list, then). I partly cathegorize simply by intuition, but I hope this is no problem :)

Info: Bug reports should go to: Bugs at sourceforge.

The three cathegories stand for:
a) Profile: Feature Requests, which are on the wishlist or have not yet been done, but seem important, and can be used for PR. What can set Phex apart.
b) Backend: All those parts which improve the general inner workings of Phex. The harsh reality behind the Look and Feel (the GUI).
c) GUI and Polish: As opposite of the Backend, this is about all those things, which imporove the feeling of the User-Interface and the usability for the User, often withhout offering significant "objective" advantages (else than maybe a few clicks less work), but often make the difference in the first choice of programs.
d) Other: There are always things, which defy cathegorisation.

The List moved to the Wishlist in our wiki. It's far easier to manage :).

I would like to see a option to open musicfiles with the default external player from both the library and upload screen.

I'd like to have the Settings screen to accept commands to play MP3, OGG, MPEG files with my favourite players :)

By the way, I've been using xMule, eMule and GTKGnutella, and I've found Phex the easiest and fastest installation in linux so far!

I'd like to see an option to run Phex without the Java GUI as a daemon on Linux. Somewhat like mldonkey and mutella.

A Web GUI would be used to access Phex.

- Connection Preferencing: Min number of Phex-connections, max number of connections by one vendor; different settings for leaf and UP-state.

(source of this Idea: gtk-gnutella)

My wish list:

Ability to generate and export statistics about uploaded / downloaded files.
Something like in Bearshare.

Ability to disable GUI.

Ability to run multimedia files inside PHEX via user specifed external program.

Ability to connect with all selected favorites hosts, not only with one host per click.

Didn't see it listed as a feature or a request:

Partial File Sharing (Helps on larger files)

Also, I'd like to suggest that the main Phex developers take over support for I2Phex. Last I heard the main I2Phex dev (sirup) was MIA.

PFS is already included in Phex (swarming + PFS) with the addition of intelligent segment selection, which downloads rarest segments first.

For i2Phex we'd have to know, how many changes have been made, and if we can integrate the source-code seamlessly.

It could be quite much work, and the i2p-people don't want i2p be widely spread as of now, afaik. So we'd have to make i2phex invisible in the gui, till they decide, that the time of i2ps dawn has come.

Besides: the main devs are GregorK (doing a hell of great work here), I'm only doing a part-time job where I can :).
Sometimes other devs add their contributions

Do you have experience with i2phex?

See, I read the swarming feature list, but didn't see PFS in it. Suppose most casual browsers don't really care about that feature :)

I have some experience using I2Phex (I'm not a coder tho). I agree it shouldn't be spread around at the moment, and this is not an advertisement for it by any means. I just have heard the the guy who did the main work on it seems to be MIA. I thought the devs of mainline Phex could at least capture and preserve his changes. I would not expect you to release them yet or anything, but I'd hate to see his work get lost :) I understand his changes could be very vast and difficult to integrate.

Anyway, this is just a suggestion. I understande that the developers will work on what they want to work on, and I encourage them to so they stay happy :) Keep on enjoying yourself fellas.

THe Filter System, now i understand now it works. but there is other filter i hoping it could be add to Phex. the Filter is similar to LimeWire.

I want a filter that filter out the search result i just put in the blacklist. Sometime i know some tend to pop up with lowest KB i know (about 120 Kb to 1MB) is a possible a virus and i know some of them is a virus by a keyword.

I would like to have a filter that filter out. What you think. i dont mind the Phex Filter result, but i rather to have LimeWire Filter system too. it very useful to me to filter out the result that i dont want it to appear on the result list
