What is ADC?
ADC is a new protocol for the DC++ client. It is still under development. The specifications of the protocol can be found here. It potentially adds the capability to do the following:
- Different shares in each hub
- Nickname changing without having to reconnect
- Encryption (chatting / file transfers)
- Authentication without plaintext password transmission.
- Advanced searching using regular expressions
- Higher hub user counts, due to the lack of MyINFO which takes up a considerable amount of bandwidth.
