with regard to Point 3, and Point 14, the only problem i see is that under normal circumstances, results may often seem unrelated, with the text entered in search not contained anywhere in a file name, but obviously, the search is also indexing metadata tags, like mp3 tags, so the files are suitably listed.Say for example, I do a search for (Shudder) Eminem, and among the search results i see 'Stan.mp3', with no mention of Eminem in the file name. The search is obviously reading either the full pathname (C:\music\eminem\albumname\stan.mp3) or it is reading the mp3 tags, which includes the artistnam, song name, album name, track number etc infoA filter as suggested might not list such a file because the filename does not contain the search term 'Eminem'
What network do you hail from Plum ?I ask this as many of the excellent ideas you have put forward are already implemented in winmx and some of the suggested improvements will already be in the new client, there are labour intensive ways to track the rogue primaries but a protocol update does seem the way ahead and was the preffered route, winmx already features encryption in all areas bar the client to client file transfers although it may now need modifying due to being widely published, files can be matched using a lightweight hash and searched for by metadata criteria in winmx and the new client already features a matching routine that checks whats been requested with what was delivered.I have to roll to work so I'll cut this post short but I,m very pleased you seem to be thinking of fixes rather than problems, a most refreshing change and a welcome one Keep up the positive and helpful dialogue
Create some way to make OpenNAP stuff support swarming and for the WNP and OpenNAP transfers to be more compatible.
this has probably been answered but opennap can 'swarm' ... with itself that is... the lopster opennap client already does this.... mixing opennap xfers with wpn xfers would be a bad idea tho since those are two different networks with two different hashing systems and it would be unfair to the users of other opennap clients...
