macOS minimum suggested compatibility for FrostWire updated to 11.5.2 (Big Sur)

We won’t be supporting 10.14.6 anymore. (although it most likely run fine for the most part)

Our oldest mac from 2014 (7 years old as of this post) upgraded fine to macOS 11.5.2 Big Sur and FrostWire passes all tests in it.

Starting our next desktop build we will be focusing on supporting macOS 12 Monterrey as we’ve had a few users with newer computers reporting crashes.

New Telluride build 15 – Now with –server mode to run as an HTTP RPC server

This is a foundation for many good things on the FrostWire network.

Download binaries:
telluride.exe
telluride_linux
telluride_macos

For instance, now every time that FrostWire for Desktop receives a Video URL, it no longer needs to create a new Telluride Process, it reuses the same process and it can ask the telluride process to fetch the relevant video/audio metadata with a simple HTTP RPC request.

This makes the experience for FrostWire for Desktop users much faster , and eventually once enough desktops are running builds post 15, they will serve as a distributed network to answer video URL searches from Android clients which cannot run Telluride as it stands today.

build 15 – apr/06/2021

  • NEW: –server mode, run telluride as an RPC web server
  • python: pylint-2.7.4
  • python: youtube_dl-2021.4.7
  • python: astroid-2.5.2
  • python: sanic-21.3.2
  • python: sanic_routing-0.5.2
