BitTorrent Client FrostWire 5.7.2 Has Been Released!April 16, 2014 • By oltjano terpollari
The BitTorrent client FrostWirte 5.7.2 has been released with many major changes and improvements, but with the main focus and goal on performance and stability.
Many torrent users experience Internet connection problems while they download large files because the BitTorrent clients tend to consume all the network bandwidth. Thanks to the uTP support FrostWire can now deal with bandwidth congestion issues in a way that won’t compromise your Internet experience while you use it.
The FrostWire BitTorrent client now automatically takes care of transfer speeds by adjusting them in a way that other programs in your computer such as web browser and Netflix can normally work.
To be honest with you guys, I struggle when I download big files with the Transmission BitTorrent client in Ubuntu, it eats all the bandwidth and makes very hard for me to perform other tasks such as watching videos on youtube.
“Another benefit of having added uTP is that some WiFi/DSL/Cable routers won’t have issues with packet data overflow when torrenting with FrostWire, which in some cases can completely drop the internet connection forcing you to restart your router to reconnect to the Internet.”, reads the official blog.
Veteran users will experience new things while using FrostWire 5.7.2 BitTorrent client, while new users will be able to understand how it works very easy.
The following is the full list of changes:
- uTP support enabled.
- Multiple crash fixes.
- UX: playable single file torrents now can be played from transfer list.
- UX: Fixes UI Thread freeze when opening Options > Search.
- UX: Better error reporting when a torrent can’t be fetched from a
- magnet connection.
- Spanish translation update by @dennistobar.
