This release of Phex sets the focus on the user interface and the search tab.

That's why we completely removed the need of a network connection to connect to the Gnutella Network.
Instead Phex now communicates with other Phex' via your speakers and notifies you of successful downloads by twinkling, bringing you an experience you won't ever forget, except maybe if you read these release notes on the day they where published :)

Back from fools mode to notes mode...
But the twinkling's there, in the download pane :)

Aside from several bugfixes it offers a completely rewritten search-filter with quick-filters and configurable user-defined rules.

For your convenience Phex ships with 2 predefined filters: An adult-filter and a filter against scam-files, blocking formats which are commonly used by scammers.

The search tab also features a new way of showing searches in a search bar, which can be toggled in the view-menu.

As finishing touch, this version of Phex now supports the "What's New" search, which finds files which recently entered the network, and contains numerous interface-cleanups.

Sidenote: Decentral Content Distribution has been facilitated. See http://wiki.phex.org for more information.
