After a long beta cycle the Phex team is proud to present you Phex 2.2, finally a stable release.

Most notably in this release are the download improvements, mostly implemented by Nick Farrell. You will notice a much better download segmentation with dynamic sizes based on the candidates speed. Slow candidates get smaller segments then faster candidates. Also slow candidates will give partly downloaded segments to available faster candidates.
An improved segment selection will make sure you start downloading the rarest parts and the beginning of the file first. You can even select your preferred download strategy.

As the first file-sharing program Phex features MAGMA (MAGnet MAnifest) file support. A magma-list is in essence an easy way to share your list of most loved files with your friends. It contains a collection of magnets.
Read more about MAGMA in the Phex forum:
About Magma
And check the specs from Arne Bab:
MAGMA Specs v2.2

The new Library coming with this release supports you to create MAGMA files and offers a more easy way to find, share and filter your files.

To stay up-to-date with the Gnutella protocol this Phex release supports:
  • PushProxy proposal
  • The newest vendor messages
  • Magnet and MAGMA support
  • Compatibility with Limewire "good host" rating
and many other updates...

Thanks to Arne Bab we are again able to release a Mac OS X version.
