sancho (n): the premier graphical user interface for p2p cores (currently supports mldonkey!)
latest news
 sancho patiently waits for:
mldonkey: to find a developer that can continue development
gcj: a fix for its bad reference bug (locks up/high cpu after a long uptime)
 

sancho has become tired of dealing with the previous webhost's problems, so he intrepidly forges ahead... let's see how well this distribution system works. Maybe on to a real web host some day.

The latest version has been recompiled to avoid an XP SP3 issue, and contains the latest SWT library which should fix some issues with XULrunner, table jumping to selection, and some other minor changes.

sancho information

sancho is a gui that connects to a p2p core application. Power users that use p2p applications usually choose one that has core/gui separation. sancho provides an easy to use, powerful, and configurable gui, currently supporting the gui protocol of the popular mldonkey core.

The sancho project is written for fun, but also to test some new and exciting technologies. It is written in Java using the SWT widget toolkit and can be compiled on multiple platforms with the gcj compiler to native machine code (java=slow and bulky? not anymore! no external java runtime required!). Windows, Linux, OSX and other popular operating systems are supported.
