Grouping download/upload

Hello!
My feature request is grouping download/upload by filename.
What it means - at present, there are several entries for every downloading/uploading file (one per user). It should be grouped into one entry showing total progress.

Present situation:

not at all - Downloads View is lacking of statistic information (speed, ETA, size, IP, etc) and can't unfold transfer.
Besides, Downloads View doesn't shop uploads.
Besides, Downloads View can't be attached below chat and userlists view as transfers can.

Transfers must support tranfer folding. Like in all powerful Win clients (greylink/strongdc/apex etc).This is native.

Downloads view shows statistics on downloads of users
Especially ETA (Time Left) for the current file as well as an ETA for all downloads from a user (Total Time Left) as well as files left by that user.

Also it shows size left on a file as well as all files left from that user.


It does not show IPs an Uploads this view is totally file centric while Transfers view is about connections.
Uploads especially shows you what parts of a file is currently being downloaded.

Showing ETA on uploads with multiple uploads is not very helpful as it would require guesswork. Most cleints only request little chunks of a file... and you never know how much the other client will download. Time left /Files left could not be shown for uploads. Clients simply never know that.
The file centric view is not useful for uploads.



About detachment. Downloads view has the same detachment functionality as Transfers view.


I also don't get what you mean with "This is native."

By "native" I mean that this is native for Win-systems. And it is very useful.
Okay, check this screens from greylink


Downloads folding, downloads above uploads.
Time left is counting for all download, it isn't too hard to implement.
