Last weekend Shareaza announced that it would be adding support for 2 additional P2P networks to its client. This was done today with the release of Shareaza 1.9 public Beta.

Shareaza 1.9 Public Beta includes support for eDonkey and BitTorrent.

Slyck spoke to MetaMachine (makers of eDonkey) about the inclusion of eDonkey support. They told us that there had been no communication with Shareaza. Mike at shareaza was often criticised by many for not communicating with the Gnutella community prior to the release of Gnutella 2.

Jed of eDonkey also expressed worry about how eDonkey support may be implemented saying "I at least hope they do it in a way so they don't leech off the network". We hope to speak to eDonkey again once they have examined the new release.

The Shareaza website has been updated with the new release. The initial user reaction seems to be very positive.
