FrostWire v5.0.6 Beta


In case you don't notice many of the changes, the most important ones are:

> Send File | Send Folder

Available on your File Menu, or by right clicking on a torrent in the transfer manager.

This feature allows you to send a file or a folder, no matter its size to another person using a simple http:// link. The other person needs to have FrostWire running to receive the file.

The page shown on the link will live at maglnk.com and we need your feedback in case you get lost when receiving a file like this.

We hope we can give the internet a new alternative to the nuisance of sending the ever growing attachments without having to deal with super naggy ad filled websites.

This feature works even better if you send the file to many people given BitTorrent's swarming capabilities, so we included there some shortcuts to share the file on Twitter and several clipboard copying actions that you might find handy (Copy all the suggested text, Copy just the link or Copy the Magnet URL)

> Partial Download for Mortals

Now all search results have [+] icon left of the search result name, if you click there the Partial Download window opens to let you see the contents of the torrent. If the torrent has way too many files and you're just interested in a few you can use a type as you text search filter to find what you need in the torrent easily.

And for the curious, here's the full changelog for this release
