New: Try Experimental Features starting on 6.4.6 for Desktop

Good morning! We’re so happy to announce that soon we’re going to release FrostWire 6.4.6. for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

FrostWire 6.4.6. for desktop has a new advanced settings section to let you try features at your own risk.

There’s 2 kinds of features: `ALPHA` and `BETA`.

  • ALPHA features come turned off when you first install FrostWire.
  • BETA features com turned on when you first install FrostWire.

For example, the current `VPN Drop Protection` feature is still deemed alpha, we still have some important work to do, and we don’t know if it’s unstable yet to be tested by everyone out there. The feature would therefore be an opt-in feature for those who want to try ALPHA features.

Once the feature is ready for a first try with lots of users, we can promote it to `BETA` and it will be on by default on most FrostWire’s out there, except on those users curious and risk-averse enough to disable `BETA`features.

Also, if you run FrostWire from source code, ALL features are enabled by default.

Want to try it? Download FrostWire 6.4.6. pre-release today!

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
