If you’re on Windows http://hookupdate.net/escort-index/, you share a lot of files (or browse a lot of shares) and the client often crashes for you, there’s a good chance it’s just running out of memory. Thanks to forum user David H. for persevering through weeks of trying out different builds and sending dozens of crash reports until we finally figured out it was all just a memory problem. Bear in mind that even though the 64-bit build can use as much memory as it needs, it *will* use more memory. There are a lot of pointers flying around, and those are now all double the size.

We’ve posted a detailed account of our trouble with PayPal, and the EFF’s efforts to help us over the last few months. You can read about it and discuss it here:
So I’m not entirely sure how much of a problem SoulseekQt memory consumption is for people out there, but it’s something that comes up pretty regularly on the forum and I figured I’d try to push through the horror of trying to refactor some of the most sensitive, complicated parts of the client code and see how far I can get.
[Updated ] Lots of changes to download folder management, Qt 5.9
I’m itching to release this build as it already fixed a lot of issues for quite a few users, but since it includes changes to very sensitive download folder management code I’m a little wary of releasing it just yet. I’m hoping you guys can try it out and let me know if you run into any new problems or whether it works well for you after some time. Changes include:
[Fixed!] Problem with automatic activation of privileges
The issue is fixed! We received word from Paypal that the engineering issue was resolved on their end, and there have been no unactivated donations for the last 2+ days. Thank you for your patience and support! Continue reading “SoulseekQt lowmem edition phase 1 – user shares”
