The thing's name will probably be "PORT" which stands for "pullmoll's onion routing tool", and this implies the direction I want to go. I learned a lot from the errors I made during Entropy development, and I want to it a tad better this time.

Actually if pollmoll's going to write something like that, then why not write a C implementation of i2p? Something that would scale, unlike the current i2p application.

However whatever minor fixes to entropy are certainly welcomed and I'm sure several of us would love it if pollmoll kept developing entropy.

Anyways another "Entropy Complete Distribution Win32" Release is in the works. This time around there will be some major differences. Hopefully it will be a better and easier distribution for windows users. So far roughly a couple mb of junk has been removed, partly from compressing all the binaries all using upx (tests so far have produced possitive results). A configuration tool may be in the works for entropy's initial setup, though it will likely be just for windows users (someone else can write one for mac/linux, as well as any rpm's, etc). As before the goal of this distribution is to attract more users to entropy. Having an attractive and easy windows distribution should help considerably to grow the network. Something else that would help would be further development of the client applications, gofrost, samizdat...

So that's what legion's been up to lately.
I tracked down the Entropy Complete Distribution Win32 first release freenet download key CHK@tS~OuuRgCfmgnFEfdss0~k7xNIYNAwI,rYPhH~fvDas0893kM2JcGQ/ECDwin32.exe

Has anyone tried it yet? Or know anything more about it? I'm not so sure that it will really help attract more people to entropy or not. Though I've been happy with legion's i2p bittorrent distro, and have never found anything malware related, so... I guess I would at least be willing to check out the new distribution whenever it's released.

I found legionīs announcement yesterday on the Entropy forum but but I was not aware of the fact that he finished already his little distro.

BTW: What does this ECD contain? A setup program or an configuration tool for Entropy? If so, is the source code available?

CU,
Markus




Cheers,
Markus

From what I've read the first release of his distro was released roughly 3 months ago. The announcement yesterday on the Entropy forum, refers to a new release of it. Though that's all we really know about it. Er well that and the first distro supposedly contains version 0.8.2-418 of entropy, since after all it is 3 months old or so.

Entropy Complete Windows Distribution Release 2

Noticed a something that somehow went wrong in this release.
entropy.conf needs to be renamed entropy_rsa.conf (sorry about that my bad).

It must have been yet another change in the makefile that snuck past me...

Still the build appears to run and work so far.

::) Nobody's perfect, though sounds like he could have spend some more time on it before posting.
Still it beats having to have cygwin, download the entropy source and build it ourselves. Granted it's not as big of a deal for anyone that already has cygwin and is familiar with compiling applications. I do wonder what all he's included in the distribution.
