The MP2P network is the work of Pablo Soto and his associated Optisoft company in P2P friendly Spain. Based loosely on the Gnutella network, Pablo created one of the most successful file-sharing networks.
The shareholders of this community, Optisoft; and Pablo Soto, the lone developer, saw different visions for Blubster. The inability for the two sides to reconcile their visions led to Pablo's departure in late 2002. The exact details of this split are unclear, however it's widely believed Optisoft was pushing for a more commercialized product, while Pablo was looking to keep such commercialism to a minimum. Optisoft retained the right to distribute Blubster by purchasing the licensing rights to the MP2P technology. Out of the Optisoft picture yet still in control of the underlying technology, Pablo went on to found Piolet (pronounced Pee-oh-lay) on January 3, 2003.
Rather, personal health problems in 2005 prevented Pablo from concentrating on his nearly five year old project. Healthy again in 2006, Pablo has reinvigorated the MP2P project. MP2P fans were surprised this week to see the homepage renovated, with the release of a new product: Manolito.
Currently, the Manolito client contains no appreciable differences from the latest version of Piolet. Many changes are coming however, as Pablo now has a team of developers working on the project with him. In addition, the Manolito homepage promises "anonymity" for the end user - details of which should be released by the development team soon.

Fortunately, Pablo Soto, the lead programmer of Piolet, has remained active with some limited distribution of his client.
After his departure, Pablo then went on to create Piolet. Over time, the internal problems at Optisoft were resolved and Piolet and Blubster were joined under the same flag.
With solid community backing and Pablo keeping his population well informed, the Manolito P2P network has the ingredients necessary to once again become a premiere P2P network.
