FrostWire ‘Kills’ Gnutella to Go All BitTorrent
Just found this article:

This could mean 2 things: the Gnutella-network is gonna lose a lot of users OR available Gnutella-clients can welcome a lot of new users for their client!

Developer(s) of Phex, take this opportunity with 2 hands, let's bring out a new version of Phex soon and become (in near future) a big player at the Gnutella-network!

Hope there will be some "Gnutella-loving" developers that wants to help the Phex team with this :xeri_ok1ani:

I wonder what the FW devs will do once all their users switch to a conjunction between some other Gnutella client and one of the probably 100 better BitTorrent clients.

I very much agree now is the time for a new Phex release.

probably 100 better BitTorrent clients.

True, most Bittorrent-clients that i know are much better. FW will lose a lot of users with this...

I very much agree now is the time for a new Phex release.

Agree, now is the time for Phex to step out the big FW-shadow, a new version, some promotion (blogs, forums, twitter) will give Phex a very big boost :xeri_ok1ani:

I hope some (FW) developers that are unhappy with the new FW-future (i'm pretty sure some of them are) will be interested in helping the Phex project...

FrostWire 5.0.7 is out and a lot of people don't like this new "BitTorrent only" version!

I will publish the latest snapshot once I have time. Do you think is stable enough?

ToNneTje July 10th, 2011 06:10 AM

Yes i think it is, i'm using it under Ubuntu (11.04) and as far i can judge i don't have any problems with it...

I think you can remove the export option to include freebase ip-cache because freebase seems to be "dead" :(

Is the Polar Skulk option stilll active? I like the idea behind this but i seems to be "dead" too (cooperation with a site like Jamendo or another site would be great!)

Maybe it's an idea to "block" some extensions by default, most of them are fakefiles.
The extensions that i block in the filter are:

.torrent .wma .rar .zip .mov .r00 .exe .uue .au .snd .qt

With these extenions in my filter i almost never get fakefiles anymore! :xeri_ok1ani:

Most people search for regular music/video files so for them the searchresults will be a lot better! (offcourse they can edit the filter to remove extensions again if they want).

Maybe this helps you:

I really don't know if it works for MAC systems (i'm using Linux).
