A new version of FrostWire 4.18.1 is finally out for Windows, Mac and Linux. This release focuses in fixing many issues our community complained about – mostly related to the connectivity and the media player. FrostWire 4.18.1 updates the “Connection Doctor” strategy and connects to a new network of UHC servers. It addresses a severe bug in the media player. It will now work around an “Invalid Frame Header” bug on some mp3 files and all mp3s should play fine now. Mac users will be happy to find a bug related to opening BitTorrent files completely fixed.
Version 4.18.1 (August 2009) - Updates on the "Connection Doctor" component, to address connection issues. Connects to new network of UHC servers. - Updates on secondary (after-search) loading logic. Loads secondary overlay on the spot, more room for FrostClick artist promotions. - Fixes a bug where some mp3 would not play. Volume, Pause and skip are disabled intentionally during workaround. - Fixes a bug where the media player would loop non-stop without playing all the songs on a playlist once it found an mp3 it could not play - Fixes a bug on for Mac OSX where FrostWire would only download torrents opened via Finder if it was already running. Torrents now launch FrostWire and start downloading at once. - Updates video help link to point to YouTube video of how to install FrostWire on Mac. - Fixes Windows Uninstaller issue where it would leave behind a Start Menu entry
FrostWire 4.18.2 is scheduled to be released sometime during August 2009, it will be an update geared towards minimizing the amount of spam and fake search results, so stay tuned.
