A New FrostWire for Android is Ready for Download!

This new release has a lot of fixes (EZTV, BtJunkie search, torrents issues, crash on audio player), also we upgraded Picasso library for image caching and did a significant update to the jlibtorrent library that improves memory handling and avoids a DDoS attack on the network.

The update is currently being rolled out in stages to a small percentage of users on Google Play so that we can fix any newly introduced bug without impacting the majority of users.

If you feel like you can handle it you can download the installers of build 202 and SourceCode on GitHub for both FrostWire Plus and FrostWire Basic on github.com
