eDonkey allows you to share and trade any type of file, with anyone, under Mac, Windows or Linux.

eDonkey already has a huge following of Windows users, but noticing a void in the Mac P2P arena the development team switched gears to bring this excelent client to the Mac world.

eDonkey contains the most advanced peer to peer filesharing technology available. It is robust, fast and easy to use.

Here are some key features of "eDonkey":
Elegant easy to use interface
International versions. Now available in many languages
Share and Download any type of file.
Downloads are automatically continued from session to session.
Completely distributed and self organizing network. No central servers.
Horde Anti-leeching system (see side bar)
Multiple source downloads. Download a file from several different users at once.
Network wide searches (see side bar)
Support for other download protocols such as http and bittorrent
Private messaging
Simultaneous uploading and downloading of the same file. Providing the fastest distribution of files possible.
Dynamic ports. eDonkey can be configured to run over any port.
Plugin System
ed2k links. You can embed links in webpages that will initiate downloads within eDonkey.
Statistics. Keep track of how much your client is sending and receiving
Multiple search tab interface
Automatic fake file detection

What's New:
Tweaks so downloads should be much faster.
updated zlib
Fixed some horde stuff
Fixed being blacklisted by donkey servers
made speed rates more accurate
when you connected to a server it set your priority to Normal
can mouse multiple select trees that allow drag / drop (shared, media, etc)
changed some default widths
Blacklists get auto-updated
turning off horde would leave the yellow box sometimes
should stop multiple donkeys from showing up if you launch them quickly
upload priorities management changed a bit
Friends don't auto-connect on click, you have to double click or choose "View Folders" from context menu.
