Release notes for 1.2.14 This version is an updated version of 1.2.13, with the two most important changes:

  1. The search function should work again for everybody, no matter what OS and processor type (ticket #486)
  2. Nick Voronin rewrote a big part of the filelist handling, reducing the loading time for filelists a lot (ticket #480)

We've also added support for UPnP when MiniUPnPc is installed.

Release notes for 1.2.13 The most noticeable changes are the bugs we removed from the GUI part making Nicotine+ more responsive and less CPU intensive. With this version the download queue is stored in a separate file; While Nicotine+ converts this automatically for you, it does mean you cannot go back to 1.2.12 without losing access to your downloads (you don't lose the queue but 1.2.12 cannot access it).

Installers: Windows OSX (this version is broken) Ubuntu

Release notes for 1.2.12 We decided to remove the PyVorbis dependency since it caused trouble for quite a few people. We are now using Mutagen as our primary meta data library. Another major change is the search display limit which will protect you from overloading Nicotine+ when searching with overly generic queries. Throw in a lot of miscellaneous changes and fixes and we think you will be happy with this upgrade :)

Please note that the plugin system is still under construction and shouldn't be used unless you want to fool around with source code.
