LimeWire 2.6.1 Beta
We have just released LimeWire 2.6.1 beta. This version fixes bugs found in 2.6.0, so thanks for everyone's feedback on those. We've reverted back to the old player for now, as we were unable to quickly resolve the issues with the newer one. LimeWire 2.6.1 beta is available at the same url as always:

Otherwise, the new features are the same, including:

- now connects to the network using GWebCache, a distributed connection system
- includes more statistics, such as showing the number of replies sent for files, the number of uploads for files, the number of alternate locations for files, and the user agent for uploads
- on Windows, we wrote a LimeWire exe launcher that dynamically searches for the most recent JVM available on your system each time you run it -- you will no longer have to re-install LimeWire when you install a new version of Java
- many important bug fixes, particularly to uploads and the installers
- LimeWire is now available in many new languages, including Italian, Catalan, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, simplified Chinese, and Swedish

As I mentioned previously, we're also working on several really important projects for future releases, such as upload queuing and a new searching system that will improve overall search performance by several orders of magnitude.

Thanks very much.

Does it already support queueing?

2.6.1 Pro is prompting me to upgrade to 2.5.5 each time I launch LimeWire????

What's up with that? :confused:

Not a big deal... but an inconvenience.
Treatid has noticed this also.

I just fixed the update problem. Let us know if any more issues arise.

Thanks a lot.

I'm actually about to post a 2.6.2 version because I made a mistake in making the non-Windows installers. 2.6.2 should be up shortly. Other than the installers, there are no changes, however.

installer keeps settings?
Have you been able to test whether or not the Windows installer is dependent on the default folders (to keep the previous settings)? I want to upgrade to the new beta but I *really* don't feel like setting all my firewall settings and program preferences the n-th time!

Every time I try to download a new version of LimeWire for the Mac. I have to re-type all my preferences from the previous version of LimeWire. If there was an option on the installer saying: Transfer settings from previous version. or don't have a previous version. I hope you can use this idea in the upcoming versions of LimeWire.:D
