After Lime Wire LLC stopped distributing its software in October 2010, an individual compiled from the latest Limewire beta PRO source code a modded LimeWire Version named Limewire Pirate Edition and released it FREE to the community to help keep the Gnutella network alive.
LimeWire Pirate Edition is available for Windows, MAC and Linux. It is based on the LimeWire 5.6 beta which was released online but then withdrawn when the RIAA won its case against the service at the end of October.
LimeWire Pirate Edition is pure P2P software; it does not depend on any servers operated by Lime Wire LLC or other companies. It does not include any adware or spyware, and it cannot be remotely monitored or shut down.
Changelog Limewire Pirate Edition:
- all dependencies on LimeWire LLC's servers have been removed,
- all remote settings have been disabled,
- the Ask toolbar has been unbundled,
- all features of LimeWire PRO have been activated for free
LimeWire Pirate Edition should work better than the last functioning version of LimeWire (5.5.10), and it should keep working for longer. There's no adware or spyware: the piratical monkeys are doing this for the benefit of the community.
