LimeWire 4.8 automatically upgrades Windows users who don't have Java 1.4.1 or higher to Java 1.5, which runs faster and is more visually appealing. UPnP-enabled (Universal Plug and Play) routers are detected and automatically configured for optimal performance. Version 4.8 also offers the ability to search for Creative Commons licensed files and to look up Creative Commons information if it is available on files. Licenses, once looked up, will be displayed in the library and search results. And of course, LimeWire continues its guarantee of no adware and no spyware.
LimeWire is the world's fastest P2P file-sharing application, letting users share and search for all types of computer files, including movies, pictures, games, and text documents. The application's other features include dynamic querying, the ability to preview files while downloading, advanced techniques for locating rare files, and an extremely intuitive user interface.
