Halite Release v 0.3.4.0

After almost two years there’s been a new release of Hal­ite. Mainly the release just updates Hal­ite to use the latest ver­sion of lib­t­or­rent and so brings with it all the good­ness Arvid Norberg has baked in his fant­astic lib­rary.

Halite Release v 0.3.3.0

Finally a new Hal­ite snap­shot has been released. It’s an unstable build but has been work­ing quite well for me. Con­fig­ur­a­tions from the last stable should load fine, mileage may vary for older ver­sion. For the sake of clair­ity I’ve adop­ted to nota­tion of using a odd num­ber to sig­nify unstable releases. The indic­ator num­ber being the […]

Halite Snapshot v 0.3.1.8

I’ve released a new Hal­ite snap­shot to SourceForge.net. First, and very import­ant, there is a known prob­lem where if UPnP is turned off then Hal­ite can crash (quite fre­quently) at star­tup. This is a prob­lem in the under­ly­ing lib­t­or­rent layer and is being worked on. I was going to wait till that issue were fixed […]
