Valknut is a client program for peer-to-peer file sharing that uses the Direct Connect protocol. It is compatible with other DC clients, such as the original DC from Neomodus, DC++ and derivatives. Valknut also interoperates with all common DC hub software.
Valknut was originally written by Mathias Küster and is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). It is written in C++ and uses the cross-platform Qt library for its GUI. As a result, it is a KDE compatible client. Valknut compiles and runs on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and OS/2 - eComStation.
Originally, Valknut was called DCGUI, which was similar to the name of another Linux DC client. It was then renamed to dcgui-qt to avoid confusion. However, trademark problems relating to the use of 'Qt' in the name forced another name change, to Valknut.
Following the release of Valknut 0.3.7, Mathias Küster stopped working on Valknut. Edward Sheldrake then moved (forked?) the code into the wxDCGUI project, where work is underway[when?] to add additional features, as well as to port Valknut's Qt3 user interface to Qt4 and eventually to wxWidgets. In May 2008 the first Qt4 version was released and later it was updated to Qt5. But development of the software stopped in 2009 and only framework update was given.
During startup, the graphics of the splash screen show a Valknut.
EiskaltDC is a disconnected fork of Valknut.
