Version 184.108.40.206 has the following bug fixes:
- 1. Fixed a number of bugs related to the TreeView. It will now update correctly in more scenarios that before. For example, if for some reason a client isn't shown while connected and that client changes his Username or Status, the TreeView will now update accordingly and so will any open conversation window with that client.
2. Fixed a bug with the Encryption password being saved when clicking "OK" in the pop up window instead of when clicking "Save" in Preferences as supposed to.
3. When changing the Encryption password and saving the Preferences, if connected, s!mpL3 LAN Messenger will announce itself to the network so other clients appear in the TreeView so no manual "Refresh" is needed after this action.
4. When multiple clients are connected, the "Chat" option will always be added above all clients instead of being further down as it used to be (was usually second).
5. Fixed a bug that could lead to a crash when receiving a message from a client and the TreeView wasn't showing that client.

- Various bug fixes when connections change while connected or disconnected (msgboxes)
- Specific settings not being greyed out as supposed to in Preferences GUI (previously Settings)

- Preferences GUI - Completely re-designed to accommodate extra settings, become less crowded and look better. Some settings have been removed for now and will be re-implemented in the future if needed. Also added the ability to mute/unmute sounds.
- Various UI tweaks - OS aware Notifications, moved some settings to the main window, under a new menu called View. Added some new features like the option for the main window and/or conversation windows to appear in the taskbar.
- Status - Your status is visible to others. The tray icon also corresponds to your status and it shows to others next to your name in the Treeview. You can change your status by clicking the icon next to your Username before connecting (cycle through) or by choosing the one you want by right-clicking the tray icon.
