Beta 0.7.0 released

Message posted on November, 26th 2003

Check release history for details

The main features of this release are:

  • Drag and drop between almost everything. Unfortunately, the drop to another program under win32 doesn't work at present time, as it is not yet implemented in the win32 port of GTK+.
  • Theme and font management (skins).
  • Advanced log management: much more events are commented and a log file is written.

This release was ready three weeks ago but we haven't any central server. Moreover, the current one can be unstable.

Beta 0.3.0 and 0.4.0 released!

Message posted on May, 26th 2003

Check release history for details

Seems that lot of time has passed since the last release! So, the project is not dead and the mole is still digging its way.

We worked a lot since release 0.2.1, but we never got the time to release the changes we made. We then worked on other projects to try to earn some money (seems to be necessary in this world), and went back to HeavyMole recently.

And HeavyMole is back! With a MS Windows version!
A word on this MS Windows version: at first time we thought we'll ever release only some GNU/Linux/Unix releases in the hope to give a cool software only to this world, and to give another reason fo MS Windows users to migrate to these better systems.
We changed our opinion principally for two reason: HeavyMole is a sharing application and sharing is something that has to be done with the most people as possible (otherwise it can be some kind of MS Windows users racism...), and giving a MS Windows and GPLed version of a Unix program is a good way to promote the GPL world and can also motivate users to migrate to a GNU/Linux system.

You may also wonder why we release two different versions on the same day. The difference between these two versions are principally that the version 0.4.0 includes the use of gtkmm2.2 instead of 1.2, and that the MS Windows support is finally supplied. The use of the release 0.3.0 is therefore mainly for programmers which may want to compare the differences between the two versions. The fact is that the version 0.3.0 should have been released earlier, but you know how life is...

Anyway, we hope you will enjoy our application.

Beta 0.2.1 released

This release is working, so please help us: install it, try it and tell us if you experienced some troubles.
You can also check here for troubleshooting on common problems.

If it seems to work, it would also be cool that you let it run so that other people find you when they connect.

Beta 0.2.0 released

and run to downloads to try it!
See here for instructions on installing and running HeavyMole.

Beta 0.1.1 released

Message posted on November, 29th 2000

Check release history for implementation details, or the download page.

Note that we still would like to get some feedback of what's happening and that we're looking for some testers.

New release planned for November, 23th

Message posted on November, 21th 2000

This release will feature:

  • standard autoconf/automake release.
  • dedicated server replacing the FTP server: this should solve most connection problems and speed up the application. The ftplib library is not needed anymore.
  • GUI monitor displaying stats about connections with neighbourgs.
  • UDP semi-reliable implemented: this should secure chat connections and others.
  • should work between big and little endian hosts.
  • you can modify user preferences during run.
  • added some GUI features.
  • memory optimisations + some bugs fixed.

We'd like to get some feedback

Message posted on November, 19th 2000

At the present time, the situation is:

  • we do not have a permanent access to Internet, so it isn't pretty much easy to update our site. We'll try to catch a permanent access as soon as possible
  • as we dont have a permanent access, we do not have any HeavyMole application running anywhere, and so, no-one's recording any message on the 'HeavyMole' chat room. Sorry for guys who wrote us some novels.
  • We'd like to get some feedback of the application. What kind of problems did you encounter during installation, compilation and execution? Is the application usable? What about his behavior? Is there any bug or problem which quickly needs to be fixed? Send us your comments to heavymole@linuxmail.org
  • we'll try to make a standard autoconf/automake distribution as soon as possible
