I2Phex released
« on: February 03, 2006, 10:43:16 AM »
Complication has been churning away and there's a new release with some goodies for y'all!

Latest changes in cvs:
- enable webcache functionality, which makes use of eepproxy
(for non-default proxy settings, edit related values in i2phex.cfg)
- bring in updated from Phex sources,
and "org.apache.commons.httpclient" from the Apache Jakarta project
to support new HTTP client code
- minor bugfixes, watchdog timer to abort stalled webcache downloads,
the source of which is partly unresolved
- create new info message, displayed when I2Phex first connects,
to inform users about querying a webcache (results take 1..2 minutes)
and alternative ways of getting peer references ( http://forum.i2p )

The full installation package can be found at: (pgp sig [link:])

Windows users can just run that, installing it into a directory "next to" your I2P installation directory (e.g. if you install I2P in the default location - C:\Program Files\i2p, you should install I2Phex in C:\Program Files\i2phex). *nix/osx users can instead run "java -jar i2phex_0.1.1.37_install.exe", installing it next to their I2P install.

The installer should create an i2phex icon on your desktop and a start menu folder with i2phex and an uninstaller. Whenever you want to run I2Phex, just use either of those, or run the I2Phex.exe in the I2Phex installation directory. *nix/osx users can just use "java -jar i2phex.exe" in the I2Phex installation directory, or can work through the optional shell scripts.

There is also a non-exe version up at: (pgp sig [link:])

This is the plain i2phex without an installer - just unzip it and run the included I2Phex.exe. You won't get a start menu, desktop icon, or uninstaller, but you may not care.

There is also i2phex's "source" release available, but that only includes the partial export that phex's original "makeRelease" bundles. To build from source, I recommend:
cvs -d co i2phex
cd build
ant makeRelease

This builds release/i2phex_0.1.1.37_install.exe and the rest. That ant script assumes ../i2p/ is the i2p source directory, with everything built, plus the contents of ../i2p/build/ available at ../i2p/lib/ (this last restriction will be removed later).

The release has been tagged in CVS as "i2phex_0_1_1_37".

As an aside, just to reiterate, there is no official I2P or I2Phex project at sourceforge or any .tk domain. You should retrieve news from and downloads from If you do download I2Phex from another location, please be certain to verify its PGP signature - all I2Phex releases announced here are signed by jrandom's public key [link:]
