Haguichi 1.0.5

Haguichi, a GUI for Hamachi (including Hamachi2) has reached version 1.0.5. Here's the complete changelog:
  • Nickname is now being remembered by Haguichi itself and is always set after each login, because Hamachi² seems to suffer from amnesia.
  • Now using regular expressions instead of splitting strings when parsing the network list (Fixes bug #706567).
  • Now using separate threads for the following actions: change nickname, jJoin network, create network, change network password, approve join request, reject join request, evict member, leave network, delete network
  • Added notification for when Hamachi loses connection.
  • Added option to manually update the network list.
  • Added check to prevent multiple parallel update cycles.
  • Added one seconds pause after login to receive a more updated network list from Hamachi.
  • Added function to determine the distro specific script directory to use (Fixes bug #721314).
  • Dialogs to change nick, join network and create network are now only created when called upon.
  • Attached all dialogs to the opening parent and made most of them modal.
  • Changed status icon behavior to take account for modal dialogs.
  • Other minor fixes, improvements and optimizations.
