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 current main developer is Michael Labouebe (gfarmerfr).
