What works

Installation, indexing, displaying files all work fine, pretty much everything except one crucial feature...

What does not

The client can't connect to the slsk server since Wine 0.9.40. This worked perfectly in Wine 0.9.39, but no subsequent version of Wine has allowed the slsk client to connect to the server.

Since I can no longer enter 0.9.39 as the tested version, I would like to add here that in 0.9.39 the slsk client would eventually go deaf to incoming distributed search requests after being up for an hour or two, requiring a restart of the application. That behavior may be fixed by now, but until Soulseek is able to connect again, there's no way to be sure.

This one regressed feature makes an almost perfectly working program unusable.  Soulseek runs in a virtual machine, but user response in Wine was much faster.  In addition, uploading rates in Vbox are hamstrung due to NAT issues, which were not a problem in Wine 0.9.39.

Nicotine+ improves upon the Windoh client in both features and ergonomics (IMO) with one important exception: files shared in Nicotine+ cannot be seen by other users doing network-wide searches.  So far, the specifications of the Soulseek distributed search mechanism are closed, except to official clients.  This may change when the new (test) server is finalized and replaces the existing server.

So, in the meantime, the Windows Soulseek client is still necessary to allow the rest of the network to find one's shared files.


What was not tested

Anything beyond connecting. Pretty much everything worked in Wine 0.9.39 once connected.
