    "p2pnet.net News:- Spyware expert Ben Edelman analysed the five leading commercial file-sharing applications on Download.com (LimeWire, iMesh, Morpheus, eDonkey and Kazaa) and found only one of them comes completely without bundled software.

    And that's LimeWire.

    “Not only did LimeWire not include bundled software, but in my testing it also did not show any advertisements beyond promotions for the paid version of LimeWire" Edelman says on his web page.


    He also observes that an internal document from Kazaa's cto Phil Morle reveals many of Kazaa employees won’t install Kazaa software.


    LimeWire coo Greg Bildson notes, quite correctly, “Users don't want adware or spyware sneaking in with a file-sharing program.


    "LimeWire is pure file-sharing technology with no spyware and no adware, and we've seen our user base grow steadily because of it." "

    LimeWire 4.8.1 released http://p2pnet.net/story/4188

    "p2pnet.net News :- LimeWire 4.8.1 is out and given that it’s to many intents and purposes an important security patch, LimeWire coo Greg Bildson is suggesting users of earlier versions should apply it immediately.


    LimeWire had frozen its Mac Classic and the new 4.0.10 version “fixes problems for them” says Bildson.


    The application recently received a Squeaky Clean vote from Ben Edelman who analysed the five leading commercial file-sharing applications on Download.com (LimeWire, iMesh, Morpheus, eDonkey and Kazaa).


    Only LimeWire is completely without bundled software, he found.


    In the meanwhile, other new features in LimeWire 4.8.1 include:


    New version update mechanism

    Revised magnet handling code

    Fixed deadlock in DAAP code


    It continues to include:


    Creative Commons Licensing

    UPnP capabilities

    Firewall to Firewall Transfers

    Dynamic Querying

    Skin support"

    This is for the benefit of those searching for a spyware-free P2P program (especially since WinMX has just about ground to a halt). Pete
