      Release Notes: "Browse Host" is back. There are parallel connections on downloads, and full support for the "Hash/Urn Gnutella Extension (HUGE)". It's a first step towards a "Content Addressable Network (CAN)". Bitzi metadata lookup allows you to get more information about files. German and French versions are available. The downloader now checks for corrupt files by looking at overlapping regions. Shared files are loaded more quickly on startup. This release connects to the network more robustly, has installer improvements to save your setting across installs, has full support for HTTP HEAD requests, and throttles outgoing bandwidth for ultrapeers.

        Release Notes: By holding multiple ultrapeer connections, much better search results are now obtainable. Gnutella version 0.6 connections pass both ultrapeer and non-ultrapeer addresses. The default number of connections was increased from 2 to 4. Leaves with multiple ultrapeer connections do not forward traffic to ultrapeer. The number of leaf nodes per ultrapeer was increased from 50 to 75. Slower results are no longer dropped, giving the user more swarming sources. The "rich query without schema" assertion failure was fixed.
