Just a few comments on performance:

- I noticed that memory usage increased just a tad - no biggy.
- CPU usage dropped - !DRASTICALLY! Good show!
- Increase in overall throughput - up aways. Again - Good Show!
- New layout of screen organization - took a bit to figure where my favorite goodies were at, finally found them; and, I like the new features very much.

YA DONE GOOD!

To Scottix...Remember I was the one who had issues right after some windows updates, and frostwire froze and then went to the taskbar permanently in Windows 7 64-bit? You then sent me a reply to my personal email, cause you didn't want to....to...oh, some 25 cent word, I can't remember...take away from the impact of the reply. My personal email is locked by Yahoo currently, and I can't remember the security question answer, which means I'm waiving bye-bye to an email addy I've had for over 15 years...anyway, I digress. My question to you would be, would I be able to do this beta testing to see if possibly your move towards 6.0 might help me get FrostWire again?

The word was obfuscate, and you don't need to be part of the beta test. 5.6.1 is released and is working well, now.

The good news is that you CAN get your email back from yahoo, but it will take weeks of back and forth emails. I did do that once, and I did manage to get it back. It WAS painful!

Good luck.
