Versie 5.5.5 van FrostWire is uitgekomen. FrostWire is een in Java geschreven bestandsuitwisselingsprogramma voor Windows, OS X, Linux en Android. Sinds versie 5 kan er niet meer via het Gnutella-netwerk worden gedownload, maar alleen nog via BitTorrent. Het programma kwam tot stand toen Limewire, waarnaar dit programma is gemodelleerd, in 2005 overwoog om code toe te voegen waarmee auteursrechtelijk materiaal kon worden geweerd. De Windows-installatie wordt geleverd met een Ask-toolbar; let dus bij het installeren even op wat er allemaal is aangevinkt. Sinds versie 5.5.0 zijn de volgende veranderingen aangebracht:
