ed2k-gtk-gui is a graphical frontend (GUI) that allows you to control an eDonkey2000 command line client (core) running on the local machine or on a remote host. It is based on the GTK+ toolkit and the gnet library.

Here are some key features of "ed2k gtk gui":
complete graphic interface for the command line client
download preview for movies and audio files
coloured progress bars
handles ed2k-links in GNOME and KDE
upload statistics on a per-file basis
upload and download speeds over time statistics
multiple search tabs
multiple selections in downloads list and servers list
drag'n'drop ed2k-links from your browser to the GUI window
download files from the search results with a custom filename
fetch up-to-date server lists via http on a click (html and server.met format)
blacklist for search results to filter out unwanted results
keeps track of when a download was last seen downloading and was last seen completely available on the network
junk-filter for filenames in download list
export ed2k-links of shared files, search results or downloads to the clipboard
automatically spawn a core and/or connect to a core when starting the GUI
different icon themes (default, GNOME2, H2O, Jara, Orbit); and the green colour can be switched off
direct access to the internet movie database (imdb) website via the toolbar
directly search sharereactor and jigle via the toolbar
custom font for the lists and icon scaling
many other goodies

What's New in This Release:
ed2k://-link handler dialog allows setting of initial priority now
Fixed ed2k://-link handler installation for some Gnome-2.6/2.8 [Alban Browaeys, Simon Umbrecht] (#1018350)
Fix outdated and non-working default serverlist URLs and point them to http://www.edonkey.com/server.met
Allow more precision for max. upload/download speeds, ie. use floats instead of ints (for modem users) (#884270)
Mozilla/Firefox ed2k:// link support; just follow the instructions from the options page ('GUI 3' tab, scroll down to bottom) to make Mozilla or Firefox send ed2k:// links directly to ed2k-gtk-gui. (Thanks to Laurent Besson for the hint).
Added 'Check razorback history of file' to the search list context menu. This will give you the names a file has been known under previously and availability information and helps you to avoid fakes.
Orbit icon theme updates (Elouen Lanoe)
