Cocoa shadow client for the Kazaa network.

Overview

NOTE: It appears that the Chimera Web browser is completely unable to download an unstuffable file of Neo, please use another browser to download Neo.

Neo is a Cocoa shadow client for the Kazaa network, it is not a real Kazaa client. Neo scans through IP ranges looking for Kazaa hosts, indexes their file list, and stores them locally on your hard drive.

What's new in Neo

Version 0.90 adds the following:
  • Massive internal changes: Upgraded to latest SQLite database, Removed dependency on OmniFrameworks, Overall speed and (massive) stability improvements
  • Reliability improvements: Fixed the disappearing hosts problem(s), Master List no longer drops hosts (was going way to fast), Fixed bug which wouldn't let you browse certain hosts
  • GUI Improvements: Spiffy new icon, Uses Jaguar NSProgressIndicator if available, Fixed color display bug with the table views, Editor table goofiness fixed, Updating hosts updates the ping time
  • Download Manager improvements: Per-user download queue implemented, Buttons always enable properly, Fixed a bug with the max simultaneous downloads, Downloads 'stall' now stall when speed is 0
  • Contextual Menus: Preliminary contextual menu support in Download Item list, Preliminary contextual menu support for the search window
  • English only release, I've not had any time to get the localizations updated, sorry
  • Lots of other stuff I've forgotten...
  • Neo is now open source!

Just a note to some people looking for the outlining application called Neo -- this is not it. Check the AppStore for Neo.

You might find "Poisoned" more appropriate - it's a multi ptp network client - at least that's my take on it. Using port scanning CAN get you into all sorts of trouble and is seem by many as a low-threat "hacker" attack. try poisonedproject.com

I've used this program for a while now and have found it incredibly useful for media downloads, is very easy to use, very simple, and very streamlined. A few new features wouldn't hurt, but I think that overall, this is the best P2P for mac right now. TO ANYONE HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING IT TO WORK: If you cannot find anything in a search, go to the smaller of the two windows, click the second button, then hit "Master List" and wait for the host search to finish. You may need to do this multiple times to get the fair majority of hosts. You may change the maximum number of hosts it will scan each time in the Preferences menu. Good luck.

This program is awesome. It's got a nice, simple interface, is as straightforward and simple as possible, quite reliable and much better than LimeWire. If not for only 400 or so servers (much less than compared to other Gnutella clients), this would be better than KaZaA itself. One suggestion would be to get more IP ranges -- cover entire ISPs such as AOL, EarthLink, Juno and many others.

Neo is basically a portscanner, so you want to be careful with it. I stopped it pretty quickly as I realized that I was pinging thousands of IP addresses. I work for a college as a computer technician and I live on campus, so running this could have cost me my job. There's got to be a better way for us mac users to have kazaa. If you're going to run it, be careful, and make sure it isn't against any acceptable use policies or contracts that you've signed.

It takes a few minutes of fiddling to get some downloads going, but it works quite nicely. The database can get rather large on the hard drive (mine is around 75 MB after a few Master List retrievals). This may be the best Kazaa that Mac users will get.

Finally, something better than Limewire that works!! Yes!!!!!! Now the only thing that would be better is an official Kazaa release for Mac OSX and 9.

I'm very impressed. I can actually find and download files on this program. I have no complants about anything. I think its easy to use, searches fine, simple interface. I don't even mind that it isn't a real Kazaa client. In fact I don't want it to be! This works! Limewire and iswipe have become completely worthless!

I'm amazed that this actually works. It's dawn awkward to use, but I have downloaded plenty of stuff with it. I hope I don't get into trouble with my broadband ISP for running a port scanner. Please let this turn into an official Kazaa client... no wait, that would load it up with spyware and cause it to suck. Anyone porting Kazaa Lite?
