We went from jlibtorrent 1.2.3.0 onto 1.2.7.0 because we weren’t happy with how stable 1.2.4, 1.2.5 and 1.2.6 were, however the libtorrent 1.2.7 engine starts the downloads almost immediatly for decently seeded torrents and we’ve seen speeds above 7Mb/s on our testing environment.

Below the list of fixes, most coming from the libtorrent project.

NEW FrostWire for Android includes user interface upgrades towards a 2.0 release

Download FrostWire NOW!

We’re excited to announce a new release of FrostWire Plus for Android (1.9.4).

01-frostwire-1.9.4

The user interface upgrades included are part of our roadmap to FrostWire for Android 2.0.

On FrostWire 1.9.4, we added thumb grid views for browsing the pictures and videos on your device.

image-viewer

On past versions of FrostWire, images and videos were displayed in a list view, this meant a lot of scrolling just to see a few pictures or video thumbnails, with the grid views you will have a more efficient way of viewing and managing your media files.

video-viewer

A new feature to accompany the new grid media browsing is a built-in Image Viewer.

You can open an image and on the toolbar menu you will find more actions:
Open, File Information, Set as Wallpaper, Rename, and Share.

The new “File Information” window, is available for all file types.Screenshot_2017-05-20-12-51-47

 

On the next updates the Image Viewer will continue to improve by including a few more basic features like browsing through the rest your pictures using swipe gestures once you’ve opened an image.

Subtle Design Upgrades

We’ve rewritten our file type selection user interface on FrostWire 1.9.4. using the latest Android APIs available for better performance, we’ve also made subtle changes on the way they look.
