Version 4.21.8 | Release Date: 2011-05-16 | Download

frostwire (4.21.8) stable; urgency=high
* Fixes a possible freeze reported by some users when the configuration
wizard is shown.
* Fixes issue when a user changes default Gnutella Save Folder
and unchecks Sharing finished downloads. Individually shared
files from the old Save Folder would still be shared.
Now all individually shared files will be unshared if you uncheck
this setting.
* Now users don’t have to re-start to stop seeding after they’ve changed
their torrent Seeding Configuration. All torrents old and new will stop
seeding as soon as the setting is applied.
* Better wording to explain on which networks files are being shared on,
Gnutella or BitTorrent.
* Changed color of “Sharing Options” gear icon to blue, gray
icon may have seemed as if the button was disabled.
* Added “Sharing Options” gear button on Search Tab. It’s only visible
once a search has been started.
* Added Help Menu options to learn about how to share/unshare files,
torrent seeding, and how to avoid being scammed into paying for

New Features include:

Easier Tab Navigation (Toggling)
Right click on a tab and you’ll have the option to hide or show any of the FrostWire tabs right there.

Improved .torrent metadata file sharing
Automatic .torrent sharing has been reimplemented to correctly share .torrent files you use, thus enabling more torrent metadata file content on the gnutella network as FrostWire 4.18.6 and further versions is adopted by the community.

.torrent files have now been included as a search type
Being a BitTorrent client it was unnatural not having a .torrent file search.
The more the community uses FrostWire for BitTorrent, the more search results will be available under this search type.

Other important updates for this first release of 2010 include bugfixes on Theme Handling, the Console Tab dissapearing, a lot of code cleanup, 2 reported crashes fixed and a slightly smaller installer compared to the previous version.

Next releases will improve BitTorrent support and antivirus integration for windows users.
