I was thinking there was intention of updating the protocols for some time now. Is there no intention then to eliminate the 2GB file cap? If it's not eliminated early on in the new client then it would be much more difficult to do later on. IPV6 compatibility will eventually have to be added. If some of the protocols are not updated then I would not have much use for WinMx. I'm not big on chatting in a chat room all day. I don't have the time to. I'm thankful for the feature, but that's not what brought me to the network. I'm the user that leaves WinMx running for months at a time without ever shutting it down. I may not be in front of the computer screen all day, but its doing its job without me. Exchanging of files is what brought me to the network back when WinMx was first released, and it will be what keeps me on the network or makes me decide to leave at some point if those changes are never made. Equal importance needs to be placed on the chat feature, and the exchanging of files feature. If anyone thinks the chat feature is the reason users prefer WinMx over other clients then I believe that person is gravely mistaken. I like the chat feature a lot, but for communicating with others users on the network for being nice enough to let me download from them. Its good to be able to say thank you or something along those lines. I'm very thankful for chat rooms, but I don't use them often. I want to see equal importance being placed on both features of the client. I hope they are keeping that in mind when work begins on the new client again.
