We’re Officially Dropping Support for Windows XP

Today we’re officially dropping support for Windows XP.

The number of issues that arise as technology moves forward which are no longer addressed by Microsoft, who already dropped support for Windows XP 5 years ago, along with a very small XP user base (our estimates are less than 5%) are the reasons going forward with this decision.

FrostWire will still be working on Windows XP, but we’re focusing on the other versions of that OS.

For now we’ll be focused on supporting and fixing all issues arising in the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10.
  • Mac OSX 10.7 (Lion) or later (64-bit)
  • Linux Ubuntu (.deb based distributions) and Red Hat descendants.
  • Android +4.0.3.

FrostWire .PISI package for Linux Pardus now available.

User Demir from Istanbul, Turkey let us know today that Linux Pardus is very popular over there and that they’ve created a FrostWire .pisi package for easy installation of FrostWire on that Linux Distro.

We can’t really test that package on our end, but If you are a Pardus user reading this, please give it a try with that package and let us know how things went.
