Thank you! But... it's no so user friendly as I hoped - too detailed, many programming therms, duplicates etc. I thought about something like press release. 8-)

Well, this is the default change log as I usually create it for each version... Its intended target are the power users who are interested in a certain level of detail on the changes. But if you'd like me to I can come up with some advertisement-like text based on the recent changes. ;)

How about this:

Shareaza 2.7.6.0 has been released!

We proudly announce the release of Shareaza version 2.7.6.0.

Among the more than 100 changes since the last version are improvements to our UPnP support, updates to compensate for wrongly encoded .torrent files (which means we do support opening files that are rejected for instance by µTorrent because of encoding or invalid path errors) as well as a lot of plugin related changes.

These plugin updates include a new link shortener plugin. It allows to copy a short URL from the context menu of files in your download list and library. This allows you to easily share your downloads and library files with your friends on social networks, via email, in chat rooms etc. Just select the new option "Copy Short URL" from the context menu and paste it in any text input area (Ctrl+V or "Paste" from the context menu). This even works on websites that do not allow the usage of Magnet file links.
Other plugins that have seen notable updates are the SearchExport plugin and the VirusTotal plugin (the latter one allows you to check files against the VirusTotal database for files containing viruses and other malicious content). Also, we have sadly removed our bitzi.com plugin, as the respective web service has been shut down.
Last but not least, we have made improvements to the plugins that extract metadata from the files in your library. This will allow for more precise file searches and more detailed search results in the future.

But enough talk about plugins. What else has seen changes? Well, the most noticeable change will probably be the download monitor windows popping up automatically when you start a download. They allow you to keep track of your running downloads even when the Shareaza main window is currently closed/in the background. If you don't like them, they can be disabled on the "General" settings page.
Also, we have added an option that limits the number of opened search windows at one time to a specific number. This is due to many search windows causing the startup time to increase significantly. In order to change this from the default value 10, just edit the respective advanced setting "Interface.BrowseWindowsLimit". To disable, set it to 0.

Besides of these big visible changes, there have been many changes under the hood as well as a number of small optimizations and bug fixes. For a complete listing of all the changes, have a look at our change log:
http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/mediawi ... Log2.7.6.0

As always, 32 and 64 bit binaries are provided on our download page:
http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/?id=download
We encourage users of Shareaza or similar filesharing software to use the provided P2P links for downloading Shareaza.

I don't read the summary much (but I'm sure others do). It seems fine, though. However, on the Downloads page the 'Release Changelogs' link still points to the old generic link at http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/wiki/ChangeLog (which redirects to http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/mediawi ... /Main_Page).

I agree, this should be fixed ASAP.

I've always liked the intent of the Total Commander 'Whats New' section, but not the implementation (summary is lacking). However, it has the running version history, with dates and links to the 'Newsletter' (summarized changelog) for major releases. Just for ideas, you can find it here: http://www.ghisler.com/whatsnew.htm

Changelog still redirects to Main Page. But there is a link to the actual Changelog on the Main Page. Seems strange to me, but it might work.
Actual ChangeLog: http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/mediawi ... /ChangeLog
Lined page: http://shareaza.sourceforge.net/wiki/ChangeLog

I said I liked what they were trying to do, not how they did it.
