FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Earlier this week the FrostWire community reported an issue with our latest fixes dealing with .bittorrent file associations in FrostWire 4.17.1 for windows. Thanks to user “Trel” we have now resolved this issue and launched a hot fix release that resolves the problem, also pushing forward a fix that will enable FrostWire to save considerable bandwidth when communicating over the Mojito DHT network, thus making the P2P network healthier as more users upgrade to 4.17.2.
Hat tip to the LimeWire Team for sharing the Mojito DHT findings.
Version 4.17.2 (November 2008)
Note: Version 4.17.2 exists only for Windows users. Mac and Linux users don’t need to worry about this hotfix release.
FrostWire, a BitTorrent/Gnutella Peer-to-Peer client, is a collaborative effort from many Open Source developers and contributors from all around the world. In late 2005, concerned developers of LimeWire’s open source community announced the start of a new project fork “FrostWire” that would protect the developmental source code of the LimeWire client and any improvements to the Gnutella protocol design. The developers of FrostWire give high regard and respect to the GNU General Public License and consider it to be the ideal foundation of a creative and free enterprise market.
