In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Release Notes

  • added IPv6 support
  • removed Windows 2000 support (kind of... can be added again with ease I guess)
  • hop information / properties can still be viewed if state is "stopped" or "stopping"
  • added start delay of about 30ms before starting to ping next hop (should improve performance)
    ! fixed trace/hop list freeze (one of them being the use of _beginthread and not _beginthreadex and waiting for it's handles...)
  • theme support (now uses OS's default theme instead of Win98
    ! other minor or critical fixes (such as leaks)
