After almost 5 months of constant development Phex now reached its next release.

The GUI received many smaller improvements and a multitude of lesser and bigger changes happened under the hood.

The most notable ones are:

  • Download-side THEX integration, so poisoned files are a thing of the past.
  • A major redesign of the upload architecture and far leaner security system for better performance and a vastly reduced memory footprint.
  • And last but not least quite many squashed bugs.

But even though Phex made good progress, we want Phex to evolve even faster, and so we're searching for additional developers who want to join us in development.

We ask you to join, because we believe that Phex is vitally important for society: It is a free cross-platform filesharing client and welcomes new ideas to transform the filesharing experience into something even greater.

We'd be glad to see you join up, be it as developer, as documenter, as artist or forum moderator or as starter of your own Phex community in your country.

Whatever your personal reasons for joining, if you want to contribute, you're welcome!
