Thanks very much.

- Option for the maximum simultaneous transfers of a single file, preventing a file from taking all upload slots.

- Reorganize preferences: No more firewall option, rename port to firewall, the search option (limit, speed, quality) removed, no more compression option, no more out of band option.

- New system of requeries [not going to happen any time soon]

- A file rating system, allowing users to collectively rate fake/garbage/good/excellent files.

- Browse clients other than LimeWire from upload window

- Allow browsing firewalled hosts

- Use NIO to take up less resources/RAM

- Client side queueing of multiple requests to a single source

- Remember advanced stats checkbox between launches

- Remember preferred sort order between launches

- Ability to clear existing sort on a table.

- Explore button on download page

- A private folder accessable only by trusted users

- Allow certain files/folders to get preferred status in upload slots

- An option to connect to fewer ultrapeers when acting as a leaf

- A mailto button for formatting & sending magnet links

- Multiple download folders for different types of downloads

- Sharing of portions of iTunes selections by choosing a playlist

- An edit menu (and ability to copy/select any displayed text)

- Ability to send download filename in search box.

- A mini LimeWire to handle magnets

- A window menu to bring chat/options/stats/main window to the foreground

- Browse host to display results with directory structure like in the library

- Drag & Drop support

- Monitor pane moved

- Bandwidth status displayed in the GUI at all times.

- Searching for phrases together, using "LimeWire Rocks" and finding only results where LimeWire Rocks, instead of limewire on the rocks.

- Seekable media player.

- Symbol next to the 'X' on search tabs to show the context menu.

- Re search for corrupt files automatically. (Should be taken care of already with TigerTree support, actually.)

itunes support for windows

I want a firewall indicator light in the LW gui: green you are unfirewalled on the port and yellow you are firewalled (like bearshare). Once you click on the yellow light it bring you to a page explaining how to configure firewalls and routers for gnutella. Also, this light would be hideable in the display menu - show /hide-. The idea is to lower the number of firewalled nodes which will benefits to all users.

--repeat search added to the context menu of the downloads pane

-*****ulative search results for repeat search (differentiate old sources by grey colour?).

--truncated filenames in downloads pane visible by tooltip (as with search items).

--clicking on a download enters the filename in the keyword search box (automatically or by contextual menu). [redundant if the edit menu happens].

--a Gnutella CONNECTION TESTER (stand-alone or integrated), that will diagnose and rate the health of the connection relative to what the user can expect with a browser, identify upstream blocks and filters, and link to suggestions for improvement as et voilą rightly suggests. [useful even if the firewall->firewall transfers become widespread] Old request here

--moving all the advanced stats (and maybe similar GUI options like IP, Location, and Vendor) to a standalone app or plugin (Pro goody?)

--first time splash screen that also warns about slow start-up because of hashing. Better yet, the hashing of 50 files before connections are attempted the first time. Hashing of further files and folders made relative to CPU usage.

--Add File menu item added to the Library->File Menu [already covered under Drag and Drop addition?]

--support for bit-torrents/bitprints/multiple networks or whatever the current filesharing fashion happens to be ;) . Do unto other networks better than they have done unto gnutella [discussion over here]

LoL Stief :D (are you serious? Multinetwork thing is a flawed idea from start... forget it) Your other suggestions are great however ;)

- For OSX: "Show file" (as opposed to opening it). With that we can simply find the file in the filemanager.

- For OSX: Add downloaded mp3 to Party-Jukebox-Playlist (remember, that te playlist is called differently in differently localized iTunes).

- When finding a file which I already have locally, LimeWire should automatically try it as alt-loc for my local files and, when successful, add it as alt-loc for that file.

Isn't it the same as the existing "Explore" button? I don't know if this button found on Windows (that opens an Explorer Window showing the directory where a selected file is stored) has an equivalent on OSX's Finder. May be this button should be named "Find" (rather than "Explore" on Windows)?

In the OSX-GUI we only have a "start"-button, which plays the file, but no "show"-button (which is how it should be named in OSX)

The "Explore" button is in the Library.

Feature request: less Buttons, more Shortcuts as replacement (backspace could be used to kill/clear marked downloads etc etc).

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 05:38 PM.
