>> From its start as a Napster clone to its leading role as the quintessential Gnutella client, LimeWire is the highest-profile P2P application. Hi, I'm Seth Rosenblatt for CNET Download.com and in this First Look we're going to check out what's new in LimeWire 5. Re-envisioned for Web 2.0 LimeWire 5 emphasizes sharing with friends, a cleaner interface and the new advanced tools. Let's start off with the redesign. Two search bars and two sidebars cap off the new look. The uppermost search is the global search that scans what everybody is sharing over the P2P network, while the secondary one on the right searches your library. The sidebars are set up similarly. The outer one shows your library, the global P2P network, and your friends. Click on My Library to reveal your stash of media. The P2P Network option shows what you're uploading and downloading, while the Friends option provides a hot link to your friend's libraries. You can import your Google/Jabber contacts to quickly build that friends list. If Facebook can do it why not LimeWire, right? Search results can be presented in both the new Web 2.0-style that surfaces just the most relevant information, with an Information button to dive deeper or you can use the "classic" spreadsheet view. If you're obsessed of about what's going on when you share the advanced tools feature is for you. It reveals highly specific information about your transfers similar to what's been available for a long time from torrent clients. This data includes IP addresses, bandwidth, the program being used and its version. The new features and overall functionality make this by far the most mature version of LimeWire to date. Despite the typical performance flaws found in all file-sharing clients, this Version 5 continues to offer solid performance and good looks across the board. For Download.com, I'm Seth Rosenblatt with your First Look at LimeWire 5. ^M00:02:05 [ Music ]
