Most of the links you put up are over 3 years old and none are from this year.

interesting you post this since a security update for wpa was sent out much earlier today for mint and ubuntu... most likely others as well...
Another avoidable security flaw it seems..

The wi-fi connections of businesses and homes around the world are at risk, according to researchers who have revealed a major flaw dubbed Krack.

It concerns an authentication system which is widely used to secure wireless connections, experts said it could leave "the majority" of connections at risk until they are patched. The researchers added the attack method was "exceptionally devastating" for Android 6.0 or above and Linux.

A Google spokesperson said: "We're aware of the issue, and we will be patching any affected devices in the coming weeks."
The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team (Cert) has issued a warning on the flaw.

"US-Cert has become aware of several key management vulnerabilities in the four-way handshake of wi-fi protected access II (WPA2) security protocol," it said. "Most or all correct implementations of the standard will be affected."

This sounds like something along the same lines as the SSL flaw we saw some time ago a supposed random function is in fact very predictable, as always watch out for strange activity by aliens etc , I have pity for anyone breaking into my old

The worst of all this is that I too want a new client  :lol:

I will do the best I can to get something ready even if its just to show we have fixed many of the bugs, the annoyance that I'm working on atm is the transfers area, its not nice and was undergoing a big rewrite so its not really ready for anyone yet, theres no magic wand to say give the folks this bit and let them pretend that bit still works but in reality does not due to it being rewritten on the fly and in need of a serious recalibration of effort, that aside I have been using the beta 3 mk "who knows what", each time i have visited the wmw chatroom for the past few years and its pretty good but like I said when its ready you can have it folks, you wouldnt buy a 2 wheel car, and I wont ask you to put up with something thats broken. 

As an aside folks theres nothing stopping any of you from forming a steering committee to help direct the work as all the effort really is a lot for one developer who has to second guess most of you when it comes to whats acceptable and whats no longer required, we could save a lot of time if we all start talking again in fine detail instead of generalising around a problem area.

« Last post by White Stripes on October 16, 2017, 11:08:50 pm »  heres the actual thing itself... its buggy as hell but it does, to a degree, function... note that this is an old release that was mostly a 'try it out' and 'proof it exists' thing.. the actual code that makes it up is scattered about so another release would be a feat to pull off...

the search function of the forum... something many seem to forget about... is also useful...

Really ?

Aside from numerous answers to folks questions spanning many years these static pages are still in evidence.

(from post here,13104.msg74685.html#new)

One of the reasons you may not have seen everything OurMx related was likely to do with the site separation we had for OurMx topics, they would naturally appear on OurMxWorld and not WinMxWorld, a simple mistake to make.

I am of the opinion that your not a regular forum user or you would have seen many of the posts or at least one of these links above and the ones posted off forum including the ourmx forum that we parked up when the development tean dropped to one.

Whats also not shown here is any of the other support information including new tutorials for when we go open src, these describe in detail how the various bits of the client work so others can step into the battle when the time comes, all this goes on outside of your view, such material has a priority over answering the same questions umpteen times on the forum here, I will always answer questions out of politeness but for some reason the same posters make the same posts and are simply out to waste time that could be better spent elsewhere, for the same reason i havent created any new data for this year on progress, its not a vanity project I'm working on, its to get it working and completed and if that requires research i do the research if that requires some support pages I write those and share anything important with the developers area we have on the forum here, the other developers also share so we all sing from the same hymn-book, all this goes on outside of your view but have no doubts it goes on.

I'm not asking you to "put it out there" I'm merely saying you should keep folks informed.

If as you say you have done this and that, how come you never mention it? You talk about everything but.

It is not simply a matter of keeping anything to myself, I may well take a differing view than yourself on whether to release something or not but with so little in the way of support  I really feel unless somethings pretty much annoyance-free I cant toss it out there as we both know if there issues or problems it would fall to me to support it in some emergency capacity, that is the reality of the situation and whilst I am not happy with the current version it will remains out of sight.

This will not be the case forever, I am certain that transparency has been delivered even if its been the cause of much annoyance to some, the truth has always been told and this will continue to be the case, when the time is right and things look better in terms of bugs etc we can all as a community explore the open src route, this will then free both the community and myself from any further commitment and I hope lay the seeds for a more public foundation for all of us, currently the WinMX  network rests on the goodwill of less than a dozen folks, those folks are unselfish decent folks whom put you all before themselves because they care for this community, if anyone seeks to judge me for being cautious then so be it but the communities welfare has and will remain my primary concern.

I'm not annoyed or frustrated as I rarely use Winmx and have long given up on the "New client".

I was curious to see if any updated info was on this forum, but it seems you want to keep it to yourself.

Transparency is the best policy.

I would love to be able to show you my machine with all the main projects and subprojects dated and stored away for when they are needed to be added to the main build, unfortunately your never going to see what I have been up to with your own eyes and thats always a problem, if folks have no trust then its like trying to build on sand.

Originally Some folks said the whole project was made up and fake, this was disproved with a very early release that was full of problems, we all agree it needed further work, that work has been rolling on and progress has been made, the progress however is not up to a stage what I wish to deliver to the community, it needs a few more tweaks and routines and some existing code streamlining, so in short its looking a heap better but its not yet a full clone, there is then no rush to lauch a badly floating vessel when the boat we all bob along on is still holding its own in the water, I know its annoying, I know its frustrating but put yourself in my shoes for once, I know there are folks out there whom can assist in the communities client project and sit idle, the price on the community however for the laid back attitude is shrinkage and apathy, thats not my wish nor will I rest from the task, however we all use this network and I want it to live on and on for the next generation of folks needing a safe place to converse and stabilise their outlooks on life whilst sharing something of enjoyment, I am not the one holding anything back, please take some time to review the situation, we all want a secure future in terms of not having to rely on anything that could be closed overnight, we have a great community here and it would be immoral to let it sink slowly  when with a few extra hands we could have a spare boat for the time it will become necessary.
