ApexDC++ is, and always will be, free from all forms of malware. The project is managed and developed by veterans of the P2P world and as such we feel we are in touch with the opinions, wishes and requirements of our users.
We have been testing 1.5.10 for a month now to try and resolve the startup issues users faced with 1.5.9. We're pleased to announce 1.5.10 fixes this issue and a host of other issues. We have merged with DC++ to include new search and hash changes - we have included a conversion tool that will automatically migrate your share to the new hash database where compatible. Only Windows XP users may need to rehash their share due to the old WinAPI (you guys have till April 2014 to upgrade).
When you first start 1.5.10 you will see a new splash screen indicator displaying your conversion progress to the new hash database (should take 10-20 minutes on first run). This was inevitable as DC++ changed their hash database to version 3 a while ago and was causing our users issues with filelists.
1.5.10 is considered stable and we highly recommend users on previous versions to upgrade (especially 1.5.9).

Just in time for the holidays we have reached 11 million worldwide downloads recorded by SourceForge.
We have had plenty going on this year including opening up 2.0 development for Mac OS X and continuing to maintain our 1.x branch. We plan to release 1.5.9 shortly with a new protocol extension to help migrate users from an existing NMDC hub to the ADC protocol. You can already check out the latest 1.5.9 Beta on our forums.
In the mean time enjoy the snow and have some fun with the family - Happy Holidays!
We have published a 1.5.8 Beta with the intention of making it final/stable if no show stopping bugs are reported. There's a new feature that shows you the correct percentage of a file an uploader is requesting off you, which helps determine their ETA to finish the download. Previously we displayed the upload chunk size and feel this is a more accurate approach. Please note that this will only take effect between 1.5.8 users and later - so get updating
Any mandatory updates now use the update check window to notify you and we have done further backend improvements.

Following DC++'s recent security fixes, we have released 1.5.7 to keep our users protected. In addition to the security fixes we have merged the latest Plugin API code with DC++ so you can use the plugins available on this page. Make sure you update the plugins if you're upgrading from 1.5.6. You can check out the full changelog available here.
Developers can now compile our source using Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 as we have provided support for this. Separate Windows XP binaries are compiled with 2012 - make sure you check out the XP folder if you're upgrading on Windows XP. The installer will automatically select the correct binaries if you're unsure.
We strongly recommend all existing users upgrade due to the nature of the security fixes.
Update 07/08/2013: An updated version has been uploaded. Everyone who has upgraded before this date will need to download the new version - sorry for any inconvenience. More information is available here.
