  1. Released: ApexDC++ 1.2.0 Final

    I'm not saying you have those obligations. I'm not saying you have to do what I say. All I am trying to do is give you honest, upfront feedback as a user about the decisions you and the development team have made. If you disagree with something someone says, tell them what you think. BUT BE POLITE ABOUT IT. I've been polite to you and everyone else here. Twice now you've insinuated that I'm stupid or that I don't understand some -unstated- point you want to make. Whether or not I understood this or knew, you should at least give people the benefit of the doubt and tell them what you think they aren't understanding or don't know in a polite, non-condescending way. P.S. I realize this is the internet and all that, but there is no reason people can't be polite and civil about things.

    Ending support for something or requiring you to patch a game when playing with other people is one thing since everyone needs to be able to see and do the same things. DC hubs are used by all kinds of people with various clients so they are going to have to be compatible with all clients. If people want to DDoS they will, forcing people to upgrade will NOT stop them. People should have the choice of whether or not to upgrade.

    Not all people have the "slots" in their router configuration to forward an additional port. Forcing people to upgrade, no matter what exploits were abusing in a previous version isn't not cool. People need to be able to make a choice about such things. Not even Microsoft forces you to update or upgrade. Specifically about your reply: There's no need to call anyone stupid (like you pretty much did). I tried to make it obvious that I wasn't meaning to offend or attack you. I've reread Lee's post and all it said was that you were going to eventually force the upgrade. Reconsidering the idea never came into play.

    So if I understand what you've said correctly, you're planning to force people to update to a version of the client that requires more knowledge to set up and is already known to have issues. Is it just me or does that sound like a poor idea? I don't mean to be rude or anything, but it seems like those two things are going to cause more problems, issues, and headaches than the new version solves.
