Formerly entitled LimeWire Pirate Edition(LPE), WireShare is the newest fork of the original LimeWire open source project. Our sole intention is to create and maintain a bona fide continuation of the project. All work is undertaken on a pro bono basis. The name was changed for legal reasons. We are in beta stage; if you'd like to change this, come talk to us in #wireshare at irc.freenode.org!
