V1.0.8 - Automatic modem / router configuration, BitTorrent, new web interface, new resources...

After 5 month of intensive development, Weezo V1.0.8 is out! This latest version underwent deep and thorough changes – new features, bugfixes and optimisations – to make it possibly the most powerful all-in-one remote access and private sharing tool.

  Modem / router automated configuration
Thanks to UPnP, Weezo is now able to automatically open and forward ports on most modems / routers. V1.0.8 is also able to configure XP’s firewall.

Installing and configuring Weezo has never been so easy

Web user interface evolution
New task bar, “start” menu and windows features make Weezo’s web interface a little closer to virtual desktop.

This version also includes the new “Vista black” theme.

Alongside with “classical” web download, it’s now possible to download files using BitTorrent clients.
This new protocol has been chosen for it’s ability to transfer huge files and to resume downloads. It is in no way an incitation to illegal download! This implementation will not allow clients to exchange files with one and other.

This resource will enable video stream re-encoding and redirection through Weezo. Stream capture is based on Videolan and accepts any HTTP/RTP/MMS or file-based input stream.

Other new resources...
  • "Audio library": this will automatically build a database with shared music information, and thus enable you to remotely access your music with an iTunes resource-like interface. You will so be able to sort and search your music.
  • "External Website" will enable you to embed any external website into your Weezo site.

Performances optimisation
Weezo now relies on latest Apache (2.2.6) and PHP (5.2.4) versions.
Advanced PHP Cache (APC) has been integrated to the server, and so reduces its load while improving overall performances.
Weezo’s interface graphical elements and html pages have been re-processed to gain size and therefore save bandwidth.

Other new features
Besides those evolutions, a lot of other new features have been included into this release, thus turning Weezo into an even more powerful tool:
  • Possibility to limit the number of simultaneous users connected to an account
  • Proxy support for outgoing connections
  • Uploads and zip downloads progress can now be tracked
  • Real-time video encoding can now display subtitles
  • Remote desktop increased performances
  • Possibility to reorder audio playlists items
  • Now compatible with Windows Vista UAC
  • ...

V1.0.8 also includes numerous bug fixes:
  • Nintendo Wii detection problem (resulting in the impossibility to use Weezo on some Wii)
  • Remote desktop: cropped desktop or horizontal blank lines seen on some computers
  • File sharing: some files whose name includes spaces couldn’t be downloaded
  • iTunes maximum quality limitation didn’t work
  • "Problem reading configuration file" on resource creation
  • More RSS formats supported
