Welcome to the new 4.21 series. This new family of releases starts off with two big upgrades: Automatic Installer Downloads (via BitTorrent) and the new Vuze Core 126.96.36.199 for even faster BitTorrent downloads.
We also added a new feature for those users that complained about the FrostClick Promotions, If you’re not into supporting independent content creators we understand, and now you can go to the FrostWire Settings and turn the promotions off altogether. You will only see the FrostWire or FrostClick logo which is the default welcome screen of the application.
Getting ready for Android and more
Our Android efforts are well underway by now, the FrostWire App for Android is very usable and it should be getting a “beta” label pretty soon. In the meantime the application has been tested in over 250 cities all over the world (by a few folks on each) and it’s getting ready for showtime.
That means that the next step will be FrostWire for Desktop talking to your Android device. This will be one of the major additions to FrostWire for Desktop 4.21 series. Expect great tools to copy files from/to your Android device via Wi-Fi.
We’re also planning on creating a FrostClick Torrent search service which will be seamlessly integrated into the “Torrent Search” results, making even more legal content available to you.
Among other very delayed ideas, 4.21 might introduce the long promised plugin platform so that you can extend FrostWire in ways we can’t possibly imagine. We know that the p2p network can be used for far more than file sharing [democratic distributed computing, social networking, gaming, and more] and we want to give you the tools to help us deliver new services on top of it. Stay tuned.
