First attempt to run after install actually failed to connect. Gave me a bit of a shock/disappointment...

Anyway, the port was just reserved at the firewall or router, probably firewall, and since the version changed it was smart enough to block this different Shareaza from connecting. Changed port and it worked. Does Shareaza remove old firewall exceptions on install?

Maybe there should be code for trying a different port if Shareaza can't connect? Or detecting failure on start up in general, the GUI was showing IP address of 0.0.0.0 which can't be right so Shareaza could have detected this automatically.

Well... I am not connected either. Shareaza didn't even make the attempt for almost 15 minutes, then suddenly, it did. However I have been passing the connection test the entire time.

It does not make attempts to connect on its own.

There was a bug and Shareaza waits for 250 seconds instead of 250 ms before connection to fresh host. :o Fixed, re-uploaded...

Odd. It did work correctly on restart without any delay. But I suppose a 250 second wait might cause weird side effects, and Shareaza might "resume" connections it hadn't actually made yet because the wait was so long. Anyway, a very good thing to catch before a public release! Wish all problems were this easy to notice.

Hi

How can i remove the annoying "chat" windows of DC++ hubs when they are trying to conect?
In my case i have 5 hubs that auto connect on initializing. Beside the connection attempts, if i close the chat window, it disconect from the hubs.
Is this supoust to be that way?

Although Shareaza's behavior is somewhat strange, connections to DC++ servers mean you are also in a chat room on each server.

That wasnt the way it worked in 2.5.4.0
in 2.5.4 you could connect and not be in the chat hub.... WAY BETTER than the annoying chat room poping up all the time when you start shareaza and are disconected somehow..

i'll definitely stay with 2.5.4 even w/ its buggy G2...

Well so at least i think there should be a auto hide option or a windows that puts the chat hubs in one tab only....
just my idea/opinion..

I am not disagreeing with you. There are likely much better ways to present the chat for each server.

PS.: Ryo, would you mind compiling and uploading a 64 bit installer of the latest stable release?

You are wrong, probably you never used an original DC++ client.

You're right. Is it also so annoying on other dc++ clients?
hide option would be just fine.

When i double click shareAza tray icon (near the windows clock icon) when shareaza is already running, it does not maximize shareaza (full screen). THis happens only in 2.5.5 , and not in 2.5.4

Is this supoust be that way?
