eMule Celebrates 5 Years with Version 0.48a

As time goes on, things do change. New websites are formed, old ones go offline. One of the biggest changes in the last two or three years was probably the notable slow-down of innovation in new file-sharing networks.

While YouTube may be the latest craze, eMule’s developers gave users a reason to remember that some of the older file-sharing powerhouses are still progressing to this day.

On the fifth anniversary, the eMule development team announced that version 0.48a has now been released.

“Time goes by and eMule grows up. Today (the day of this release) our beloved eMule becomes 5 years old – Happy birthday” eMule’s administrator wrote, “Too keep it fit and healthy for the coming months and years a new version, eMule 0.48a, has been prepared which is now ready to be released.”

The new updates includes:

First step towards Vista by fixing most glitches and problems Vista had with eMule and by this also support of multi user installations (for all OSs)

Support for UPnP

A spam filter for search results

Several GUI improvements like smiley support for IRC and messages., nicer file tool tips and so on

And as always fixing several bugs and adding other small changes

An extensive changelog was also released, accompanying the announcement.
