Postby maksis » 19 Nov 2020, 19:40

Version 4.00 introduces a new Extensions tab that can be used to install new extensions or to manage installed ones.

Functionality that has been moved to extensions

The inbuilt scan for missing/extra files and share monitoring have been replaced with separate extensions that can be managed from the Extensions tab. The respective extensions will be installed by default when upgrading from an old version (the share scanner extension will be installed only for people using the RAR settings profile). The new extensions aren't able to use your previous share scanning and monitoring settings so you may want to review the settings of both extensions after upgrading.

Writing own extensions

AirDC++ Web API allows implementing extensions for various different use cases, such as queueing new files, performing searches, validating finished bundles or files/directories to be added share, sending/reading chat messages, validating share of other users, dynamic setting of speed limits, managing share refreshes, adding context menu items that perform custom actions etc.

Existing AirDC++ users with AirDC++ 3.71 who have switched to the Beta update channel (Settings -> Miscellaneous -> Update channel) will be prompted to install the beta version.
