Welcome to the Nicotine+ Trac

What is Nicotine and Nicotine+?

Hyriand's rewrite of PySoulSeek with a PyGTK GUI is called Nicotine (wayback machine).

Nicotine+ is an attempt to keep Nicotine working with the latest libraries, kill bugs, keep current with the Soulseek protocol and add some new features that users want and/or need.

The main developers were daelstorm, quinox and hedonist.

The current main developer is Michael Labouebe (gfarmerfr).

Installers: Windows Ubuntu/Debian & other .deb based systems (require at least python2.5 and GTK 2.12) UPnP module i386 / amd64
Source: tar.gz

Release notes for 1.2.16 Plenty of bug fixes, the most important ones being #641 and #593: The former means all your private rooms should now show up and the latter one means portmapping with the binary UPnPc works. For the complete list of changes check out the Changelog

Windows users: Some users reported that you have to uninstall 1.2.14, or install 1.2.16 to a new directory. Without this Nicotine+ fails to start properly.
