Welcome everybody to the new FrostWire forums.
Expect a bit of breakage the following days as we adjust to this new platform.
We thank you for your patience.
STICKY: PLEASE READ -> USER GUIDE FOR FROSTWIRE 5
The Super Happy Fun Comprehensive Guide to FrostWire 5
--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: Please note that currently new builds are being released frequently to fix bugs and the like. Some of these new builds retain the old version number so as not to flood users with unnecessary updates. If you notice a bug or issue and cannot find a solution on the forums, please re-download FrostWire from the main webpage and re-install it to ensure that you have the very latest version. 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
