Version 0.5.1 released

This release contains quite some important features:

Support for Tor and I2p.

Which means you can connect to Tor and I2P peers.

And support for the DHT.

Which means you can connect to other Xeres/Retroshare peers even if you don’t know their IPs.

There’s a lot of cool new UI features, especially the settings part where you can configure all the above and also control UPNP and Broadcast Discovery.

There’s also the (in)famous LEDs in the status bar 🙂

Here’s the list of changes:


  • add Tor support
