It offers a automatic search functionality to find new download candidates, resumes the downloads across different hosts and has multi-source downloading (swarming). You have improved download configuration to tune your auto search and there is support for the Gnutella Protocol v0.6 and other protocol extensions. Phex is written in Java and able to run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and many other common plattforms. It is compatible with LimeWire, BearShare, Morpheus, and all other P2P Gnutella clients.
What's new in this version:
- Much faster searches through a UDP rewrite,
- Secure signed update checks, so noone can fool your Phex into trusting a false update,
- And last but not least quite many squashed bugs.
