The next release of eDonkey has been long awaited. With much of Metamachine's concentrations on Overnet, eDonkey development has been placed on the back burner. That's all about to change, however. The eDonkey/Overnet developers have informed us of the upcoming release, and some big changes are on the way.

The most notable change to eDonkey will be the integration of Overnet, perhaps as an attempt to jumpstart this fledgling community. Check out some of the details below:

  • Core updates, there was a large amount of code-re-writing and discovery during the creation of Overnet, this is all backported in the next release.
  • Skins, The GUI system from Overnet is here.
  • Speaking of Overnet, this is a combined client, you may connect to both the eDonkey and Overnet networks, to search, share, download.
  • For the first time ever, download links are working under Windows XP, even an "add all."
  • We will be running a skinning contest to determine the default skin for this exciting new program
