FrostWire, the free and opensource filesharing client for Windows, Mac and Linux is out with a new version which improves heavily on its core search features.

On this release we’ve revamped our smart meta search architecture to be faster and more energy efficient, it also increases the range of torrents and files indexed by several orders of magnitude even though ISOHunt has been removed from the list of search engines, with the addition of new search engines. The 5.6.x series will focus on adding even more search engines without taking a hit on CPU usage and bringing better quality search results.

It is highly recommended to install this update, while we work on 5.6.x updates and a new generation of distributed search that will come about for the 5.7.x series.
