0.5 is alpha software. We need testers and also debuggers.
This project recently joined sourceforge.net and developers are wanted.
Currently there is no installer (setup utility); so if you're the
casual user, you will have to wait until the next release. For
developers, the whole source code is readily available.
As of this
release, FileScope is a fully functional and complete client. It works
with all four networks and all the features (searching, swarm
downloading, etc.) work fine. Only minor bug fixes and tweaks are
wanted to contribute to this project. Nothing can be better than
developing a P2P app this good in C#. Many developers have already taken interest.
We want more. You don't have to do much to be a developer. Send us a patch fixing a
small bug; and then tell all your friends you made the whole application yourself. We don't
care, as long as you contribute.
Email Matt and ask whatever
questions you like. We're flexible.

Why use FileScope?
FileScope is the client that has
everything you need for file sharing, regardless of the kind of content
you're looking for, or operating system you're using. It is fast,
effective, feature-filled, and attractive. As this is an open source
project, developed in a very powerful and popular programming language,
developers can join to help FileScope make even faster progress.
FileScope is completely decentralized, ensuring that its networks will
never be "shut down"; and its programming model ensures that more
networks can easily be added in the future. Most importantly, this is
totally free software.
