RetroShare v0.6.1

  • Released on 3 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by lautrepay

Retroshare is a feature-rich communications platform for small groups of users with a focus on privacy. The program includes an exclusive and secure toolset for instant messaging, chat rooms, forums, direct messages (e-mail), file server, VoIP, channels for distributing content, and link exchange. It functions as an open, distributed alternative to many commercial groupware programs.

Additional features include RSS feed reader, status messages (away/busy), different modes for low traffic, transfer and disk space limits, plugins, skins, and much more. Cross-platform (Mac, Linux, BSD).

Great for small businesses, groups, and a safer alternative to most file sharing methods. Networks can be small or large, but communications between users are limited by default to friends and friends-of-friends, with more specific controls available.

@This is me
It would be perfect if it supported EXIF.

Specular on 2015-05-03 13:47

@smaragdus, EXIF metadata (rotation at least) is a planned feature, judging by the Github issues page.

If any devs out are there feel like adding support for it I'm also sure the author would welcome it :)

smaragdus on 2015-11-15 19:00

@Specular
Since version 1.5.0 Pictus offers EXIF orientation support! ;)
By the way the latest version is 1.5.1.

Doesn`t work for me in Windows 8.1. Appears for a second then disappears off screen.

__philippe on 2015-04-19 16:16

WeatherMate 4.3 finally working under XP.
(just ignore the "Cannot create application shortcuts" warning)

During initial run, a tiny temperature icon is created in the system tray.
Thereafter, right click the icon to set personal options, such as position of main WM43 window, local preferences, forecasts display periods and so on.

Nifty app.

job_toss, thank you! That worked perfectly.

The author was pretty non-responsive. He emailed me like 1-2 months after my initial wishlist/suggestions and shot down every one. -__- I wish he had just told me that when I asked about this problem.

AndTheWolf on 2015-09-21 17:54

Version 1.23 has been available for about a month.
