Happy Friday! We’re so happy to announce the new release of FrostWire for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
New: Experimental Features
Starting FrostWire 6.4.6 you can try experimental features at your own risk.
You will have the chance to try the future features of our software! For example, you can try the new setting of VPN-Drop protection. If a VPN connection is not available, automatically FrostWire will stop all BitTorrent traffic for your protection.
New: VPN-Drop protection (Experimental Feature)
As our first experimental feature we’re introducing a Privacy Protection feature for VPN users out there. FrostWire will detect if your VPN connection drops and if you have this setting activated FrostWire will automatically stop all BitTorrent transfers to protect your privacy.
New: Lyrics when available on Playlists
Also, now we added support to display lyrics when available. Now you can listen to music and enjoy the lyrics in the software without the need to open your web browser to search for it!
New/Advanced: Determine .torrent piece sizes
On the other hand, we fixed a bug related to SoundCloud search, and issues reported with BitTorrent transfers.

What is FrostWire?
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 support for the BitTorrent protocol and a full blown media player.
