--by Aubrey, the friendly lumberjack? :P
FrostWire 5 is a next-generation BitTorrent client which abandons the old Gnutella network and now uses the BitTorrent filesharing network. It is hoped that this move will help users see less spam, have a faster experience, and (most importantly) have an easier time sharing files with your friends.
IMPORTANT: After Many releases, with the release or Frostwire 5,2,11 The Frostwire Team is feeling confident that they have a pretty fine Torrent client. Development and improvements of course continue, thanks to much input from testers and users. It is recommended that users update to this version (as of 5 December 2011) You can also monitor the changelog to read all the latest release notes.
FrostWire 5 introduces:
- New Substance Look-and-Feel system for a prettier FrostWire
- Torrents only - Gnutella functionality has been removed.
- Partial downloads - only want a few songs from an album? Have them without downloading the whole folder.
- Share files with your friends in mere seconds using MagLnk (without a need for firewall configuration!)
- Faster than ever loading and installation
- The ability to search multiple major torrent trackers to find exactly what you're looking for
