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. In version 5, Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and FrostWire is only a BitTorrent client. Development of the program has been active since the program was first released in September 2004.

FrostWire 4.17.2 for MacOSX

Download FrostWire 4.17.2 for MacOSX

This release for MacOSX includes some of the fixes added to Windows 4.17.2 release but it’s aimed mostly to solve some incompatibilities found on the new Macbooks and Macbook PROs.

Some Mac users had reported that FrostWire 4.17.1 would not start , we revised the previous launcher and fixed possible errors and updated the Mac OSX native libraries for improved Leopard compatibility. Also FrostWire will now refuse to be executed from the Disk Image (DMG), teaching some newly mac-converted users how they should install the application.
