Is it really necessary test WinMX 3.54 for so small changes?

Postby king » Sat Oct 23, 2004 9:05 am

I don't see protocol enhancement or other big features to justify a so massive beta testing.

WinMX 3.54 beta:
"A new Library component replaces the Shared Files window. The new Library allows for much greater user control over what files are being made available. Rebuilding and refreshing is completely in the background on separate threads. Video files are now scanned for bitrate, compression format, frame size, etc."

I don't see protocol enhancement or other big features to justify a so massive beta testing.

First of all, it looks like Kevin is doing one part at the time.
Second, you shouldn't complain to us. We hav as much contact with Kevin as you have. Complain to Tom via PM if you must, cuz he's Slyck's Kevinhandler. :lol:
Third, why do you keep coming back to b!tch?

DaBlade, first three are ok, BUT:
point 4 and 5 are really unneeded.
If you want to flame, flame per PM as you advised him, too, but not in the public.
There is no demand for b!tching and %&/(ing.
Windows? Blah. Linux? Blah. BSD? Blah.
Just make sure you have a computer licence and I can open your fsckin files.

to add simple features like chat update and shared files indications, WinMX team taked too much time!
why they didn't start with more important features like search improvements or better protocol or full hash of files? How many time will be taken to add these features? 2006 ?
I think frontecode technologies are joking with all WinMX users...

Have you thought about this?:

Those features may be imperative to the new protocol.
What if he started right off at the protocol, without making the neccessary changes? What if the whole network collapsed because of it? Or the client was so buggy it crashed every 10 minutes?

yeah, the only reason people feel inclined to complain is because winMX left us for a year with no update. Everyone thought they were dead, so people think, now that there back, they have some sort of justification to flame.
:P think about it,
edit: if any other p2p e.g. soulseek, emule, ed2k, kazaa, morpheus[if you use it,], mute, ants, etc etc did this, no one would be complaining. They would be happy for a new release.

Hey! A library upgrade! :D Sounds like reason enough for me to update. I've been a Shareaza user for some time, and I've fallen in love with it's fantastic library. I'm looking forward to testing this update next week.

Have you even looked at the screenshots from WinMX.com/beta?
This enables a whole new level of control on the shares.

all the enhancements in the world won't make the good users come back, or make the current users any smarter
