V4 is out now

Version 4 Final Release is out now and looks really promising. However, I am no network pro, so I would be interested in comments about this new version.

IO Stalls

Comment by jrodman
about NetLimiter Jan 2013

Has a fatal flaw; will block all I/O for over 0.5 seconds once every few minutes.
This means any realtime stuff like games, movies, music, will get screwed up. Also causes UI stalls.

Recommend against.

A very good and functional program, but $30 (USD) seems a little pricey for something that's update about once or twice a year.
