The tools are in the different builds - many users would like the full builds others would not so there is the full builds and the smaller more streamlined builds.Originally posted by Error304
Currently the best version is:
* Clean KMD 2.4.4
This is basically an updated version of Kazaa Lite K++ 2.4.3 with the newest tools. It has the most features and options of all versions. Specifically the AutoSearchMore function and build-in accelerator are very good. But also many other functions that you won't find in other versions.
Other good versions are:
* Kazaa Lite K++ 2.4.3
This is the most famous Kazaa Lite version ever. Just plain good.
* Clean KMD 2.6.0
This is the best clean version of Kazaa 2.6.0. It has some of the functions that can also be found in the 2.4.x series, but not all of them. Ones that it does have are unlimited searches, a PL of 1000 and the build-in IP blocker. One thing that it doesn't has is AutoSearchMore.
This build just contains all the tools that you need and not lots of unneeded and confusing extra tools like other 2.6.0 builds have.
No it is not the KLR loader that provides the limited features it is the lack of an updated klextensions, if that was incorporated then there would be very few differences in the latest builds. And also the #klchat build which is the build that has been on this forum the longest of them all, does incorporate a toolbar as a temporary solution to the lack of klextensions, autosearch more can be activated also.
Why are the 2.6.0 versions NOT better as the 2.4.x versions?
One simple reason: functionality
The 2.6.0 builds use the KLR loader which adds less features than the K++ loader that is used by the 2.4.x builds.
The 2.4.x builds also have a special add-on called KL Extensions which adds many useful features like AutoSearchMore and a build-in accelerator.
The 2.4.x builds also have a more user-friendly interface with for example a custom startup webpage.
The ONLY advantage in the 2.6.0 builds is the ability to have multiple search tabs.
I am guessing that you dont spend your whole day listening to users who complain they can no longer get any search results on the k-lite channel, Error304 you can only make an accurate statement on this if you actually talk to the users and help them troubleshoot - it is NOT a romour and many individuals inc. our previous admin Paul stated this, now i dont know you but to me if I see it first hand from users and also i believe that Paul's word is beyone reproach - then again you may not believe it is?
Aren't old versions being blocked off the network by the new versions?
This is just a rumour. Currently almost the entire network consists of old versions, so even if this rumour is true then you don't have to worry. It will take months before we will notice any changes (if we ever do). Until then just use your old version. You can always switch in the future. Old versions still work perfect now.
