Yes we are alive and kicking!
This is a routine maintenance release that catches up to the latest plugin changes implemented in DC++ by Crise and a few other general fixes. While we're migrating over to using DC++ maintained plugins there are two plugin files offered for download. The traditional plugins are still available and the new LuaPlugin is renamed to ScriptPlugin; you can find both of them here.
A list of changes have been published and we are expanding our private testing group for 2.0. Expect to see another post regarding recruitment for this very soon.

At peak times, apexdc.net can receive over 30,000 visitors a day and 12 requests per second.
This is why we're always monitoring and looking for ways to improve our server performance. Today the site will be moved to our newly built web server running the latest technology ready to handle future releases.
We have temporarily disabled any auto updates while the process is completed and I will add an update to this post as soon as my DNS updates on the new server.
Update: If you see this message you're on our new server (details inside).
Marthapt liked a post in a topic by Lee in Released: Welcome to ApexDC 1.4
We are pleased to announce our first featured update since 1.3 was first introduced. We have merged with StrongDC++ 2.42 to keep up with Big Muscle's improvements, introduced a more efficient installer using Inno, rewritten the webserver area that was initially planned for 2.0, and more!
1.4.0 follows StrongDC++'s decision to disable emulation by default on all hubs (please let your hub owners aware of this, otherwise they may be unknowingly blocking ApexDC users). This can be configured under favourite hub properties if you wish. Our new installer detects your system language and processor architecture (32bit or 64bit), has a cleaner uninstall and removes OpenCandy integration in favour of our own ApexDC Toolbar. You will still need to confirm the installation of the ApexDC Toolbar and it can be uninstalled at any time.
The webserver changes mean that you no longer use the templates on apexdc.net and load them locally. There are lots more changes so check out the page for more details.
Let us know what you think!
