Today the Phex development group is happy to announce the release of Phex 3.4.
Since the last release the core of Phex received many improvements.

The most notable changes are:

  • Much faster searches through a UDP rewrite,
  • Secure signed update checks, so noone can fool your Phex into trusting a false update,
  • And last but not least quite many squashed bugs.

Also Phex is now being built with maven, so dependencies on external libraries have become far easier to manage.

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

If you want to contribute to Phex, please come into our forums or meet us in IRC via #phex @ freenode.net.
