Behaviour
* Changed the description for our .exe files so it shows up as Nicotine+ in
firewalls (ticket #498)
* When using an upload slot limit, uploads that don't start within 30 seconds
are no longer counted as a used slot. This stops a single faulty user from

Bugs

remembered with restart (ticket #205)

* Ban list got unintentionally deleted sometimes (Ticket #519)

Version 1.2.14 (4th October 2009)
---------------------------------
Behaviour

* Multiple shares can now be loaded from the harddrive at the same time
Features
* Support for UPnP through MiniUPnPc (ticket #230)

* Bitrates for Musepack audio were scanned incorrectly
* Saving file lists from users with slashes in the name didn't work
* Filesize was incorrect for files around 2 gigabytes and up in userbrowse.
Version 1.2.13 (22 Sept 2009)

Bugs

* Highlight icon kept on blinking with detached windows
* Fixed links in the Help menu that didn't work (ticket #459)
* A few different GUI related bugs that should make Nicotine+ much more
responsive and use less CPU: Startup time reduced when there is a queue,
queueing many items at a timer, pressing buttons like "Clear Finished" and
"Abort User's Upload(s)"
* ...and lots of tiny bugs
Translations
* Žygimantas updated Lithuanian translation
* Kenny updated Dutch translation
* Nils updated Hungarian translation
Version 1.2.12 (26 May 2009)
----------------------------
Behaviour

retrieved by using the filters. (bug #284)
* Notebook tabs can be reordered and hidden, and these settings will be remembered.
* Search results are now limited. There are two different limits:

These limits are configurable from the configuration screen. (bug #284)

SETTINGS
* Added an Import Config frame to Settings, which duplicates the functionality
of nicotine-import-winconfig. User can now easily import config options

no matter what your allowed uploaders is set to.
USER INFO
* Stats were rearrange and the status of who is allowed to initiate uploads to
the user was added.
USER BROWSE
