i2phex (official cvs release)
« on: September 20, 2005, 07:42:01 PM »

Prompted by some reports of differences between the source and what
was bundled in legion's packaging of, as well as concern
for the safety of the closed source native launcher, I've gone
ahead and added a new launch4j [1] built i2phex.exe to cvs and built
the latest from cvs on the i2p file archive [2].  It is unknown
whether there are other changes made by legion to his source code
prior to his release, or whether the source code he put out is in
fact the same as what he built.

For security purposes, I cannot recommend the use of either legion's
closed source launcher or the release.  The release on the
I2P website [2] contains the latest code from cvs, without

You can reproduce the build by first checking out and building the
I2P code, then checking out the I2Phex code, then running
"ant makeRelease":
  mkdir ~/devi2p ; cd ~/devi2p/
  cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at login # (pw: anoncvs)
  cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at co i2p
  cd i2p ; ant build ; cd ..
  cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at co i2phex
  cd i2phex/build ; ant makeRelease ; cd ../..
  ls -l i2phex/release/

The i2phex.exe inside that zip is usable on windows by simply
running it, or on *nix/osx via "java -jar i2phex.exe".  It does
depend upon I2Phex being installed in a directory next to I2P -
(e.g. C:\Program Files\i2phex\ and C:\Program Files\i2p\), as it
references some of I2P's jar files.

I'm not stepping in to maintain I2Phex, but I will put future I2Phex
releases on the website when there are updates to cvs.  If someone
wants to work on a webpage that we can put up to describe/introduce
it (sirup, you out there?), with links to sirup.i2p, useful forum
posts, legion's list of active peers, that'd be great.

Noticed that and the launcher that is referred to in this post are no longer up on legion's site. Seems there is just a and it's source. After checking the i2p forums, seems the custom launcher was removed.

Wonder why .28 was skipped? Whatever the reason .29 seems to work fine and I've no complaints.
