  • Replaced User Searching peer messages with the new User Search server message, (message 42)
  • Interests and Recommendations messages connected up and accessable my the clients.
  • A new type of user, the Trusted User.

  • Museekd sends out responses to message 26 (normal file search)
  • Museekd quits attempting to reconnect to server if another client has kicked it off (message 41)
  • Redirect User info and browse user requests to yourself from your Internet IP to to get around NATs and routers.

  • Added peer message 52, the Remote Queue Notification. If a remote user attempts to upload to you, but is not a trusted user, it will now get an automatic Private Message warning the user of this.
  • Rewrote the User Shares parsing function in, so now mucous' browsing speed is comparable to browsing in museeq.
