Sharing changes

2.60 will use the new monitoring feature (introduced in version 2.50) for all directories. Scheduled refresh will be disabled for users updating upgrading from older versions. In order to make sure that share changes made while the client was closed will also be applied, the share will be refreshed after the client has been started (can be disabled).

New filter in search and file lists

Version 2.60 introduces a new filter for search and file lists. You can use more advanced text patterns, filter by the dupe status, exclude matching items instead of only displaying them and so on. The other filters have been improved too.

Here are a few filtering examples that work in search, file lists, user list, and in the Users tab. Type the shown text in the filter box when having the type "Any" or the specific column selected.

Show items newer than 10 days:

Show items larger than 1 GiB (or users sharing more than that):

Show users with connection of 100 Mbit/s (or faster):

All download links and the changelog have been updated to the latest version. There's still some time to test 2.60 and get the bugs fixed before it goes stable 8-)
