New FrostWire 4.17.2 for Windows

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Official FrostWire 4.17.2 Windows Download link

Earlier this week the FrostWire community reported an issue with our latest fixes dealing with .bittorrent file associations in FrostWire 4.17.1 for windows. Thanks to user “Trel” we have now resolved this issue and launched a hot fix release that resolves the problem, also pushing forward a fix that will enable FrostWire to save considerable bandwidth when communicating over the Mojito DHT network, thus making the P2P network healthier as more users upgrade to 4.17.2.

Hat tip to the LimeWire Team for sharing the Mojito DHT findings.

CHANGELOG:

Version 4.17.2 (November 2008)

  • Fixes a newly introduced bug in Windows which would make FrostWire(tm) take over the .bittorrent file association without asking the user.
  • Reduces DHT network load. The LimeWire team found out that the Mojito “store forwarding” feature would not provide extra data availability, so it’s been turned off from the DHT on all new FrostWires.
  • FrostWire.ico has been updated. Now when FrostWire(tm) is associated to .bittorrent files, .bittorrent files will use the FrostWire(tm) icon.
  • Note: Version 4.17.2 exists only for Windows users. Mac and Linux users don’t need to worry about this hotfix release.
