Happy Sunday! This week has been very important because significant leaders like Mark Zuckerberg and Pope Francis spoke at the United Nations. And also, today we are releasing a new FrostWire (6.1.5) for Windows, Mac and Linux.
This update makes FrostWire faster and leaner in memory usage, here’s how.
We fixed Kat Search, Bitsnoop Search, and EZTV search, so now you won’t have any issues when you search. Also, we replaced our HTTP networking engine and FrostWire is now more efficient and reliable than ever when it comes to web connectivity, this means faster and more reliable search results, faster media result previews, faster YouTube, SoundCloud and Archive.org downloads and all of this with less resources from your computer.
We also updated our Java runtime to the latest version (1.8.0 build 60), and removed Radio functionality which had been hard to maintain, not used by many people and not that great as we couldn’t keep up with the station url churn.
If you want to enjoy online radio we recommend you just open your web browser and head to shoutcast.com.
Enjoy your weekend with this new FrostWire. Remember, FrostWire is totally free and you can download it directly our our website FrostWire.com/Downloads
