Try the new FrostWire 5.7.0 release candidate installers


A new generation of FrostWire is almost here for 2014 and you can try it now before the official release on

FrostWire developers have upgraded the older vuze BitTorrent engine with the latest code from the Vuze/Azureus project, they’ve also replace the java runtime with the latest one from Oracle and this should eliminate binary incompatibility issues some Windows XP users had with the 5.6.x series.

The old chat tab is gone and it’s been now replacd by an IRC Web Client so now FrostWire boots up a bit faster.

Upgrades to search include integration with a new torrent index with over 3 million torrents and tens of millions of files to search from, as well as bugs and crash fixes.

Help the development team by testing the release candidate installers, if you have any issues with the 5.7.0 RC build 1 installer please leave a message in the comment section below with as much detail as possible about your computer and the conditions under which a problem may have ocurred.

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including BitTorrent support.
