It's been a while, but hakchi2 ce 3.5.0 is finally here!

This release brings a bunch of fixes and new features, one of the most notable being the mod hub, a repository system that allows sources other than the mod store to be easily accessed from CE.

The first repository to make use of this new feature is KMFD's Mod Hub, so no more downloading the hmods manually from the pack just to get one of them that were updated.

Other notable changes is that the PuTTYtel telnet client is included and the Open FTP Client menu item now opens windows explorer by default.

Also included is preliminary support for running in mono on Linux, to run without crashing, ensure you have libusb installed.

A full list of changes in CE is as follows:

  • Mod Hub

    • An all new repository system that allows any source to be added and accessed from within CE!

    • Launch the driver installer when needed if not installed
