Furthur v.1.7.5 Released

The FurthurNet team is pleased to release v. 1.7.5 of its java-based P2P client. Furthur gives its users access to terabytes of live, legally-traded music and video shared by its users, and an integrated chat community dedicated to live music. Unlike many P2P's, Furthur specializes in lossless, CD-quality audio and video, although it allows mp3s and other formats. Version 1.7.5 is primarily a user-interface upgrade, improving the client's help and setup features, and enhancing the built-in chat engine. It also improves search results and download priority for users with faster Intenet connections, and updates the code for use with JRE v. 1.5. ... read more

Furthur 1.5.6 released! Patch for 1.5.5

All,
1.5.5 had a couple of major bugs that weren't noticed until everyone had it. We've fixed the bugs, and released a patch version 1.5.6. We're sorry for the trouble, but 1.5.6 should resolve the issues we've been seeing over the past day.

Bugs fixed:
1. The search panel fields could sometimes stop responding to input.
2. Version 1.5.5 clients rarely respond to searches.

There are 2 ways to get the patch:
1. If you're running 1.5.5, select Object Type="Music Software", and search for Publisher="PCP Networks"
2. Download from https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=39429... read more
