What's New

Version 0.5191:
  • Sorry for the delay on this release. It's been a long while. All updates to the source on cvs have been made so you can all start committing changes to the code. Now ares support is fixed. Gnutella support fixed. Nodelist updating is fixed. A few minor changes to correct glaring problems and concerns. A basic update to keep people functional. I will be looking into universal more...


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Development is dead, protocol is insecure.

Is this application dead? I haven't used it in a while...but, 5 of the 6 networks were down -- nothing came up from the search & its been a while since there has been any update/news on the developer site!!!

It looks like the development has been resumed on this excellent software! Granted, there is still some work to do, but in the mean time you can download files from four different network from a single well-designed application.

(On a MacBook Pro) Poisoned is a beautiful application but only on PPC Macs. I can't find anything now I'm on Intel partly due to it being PPC only so I'm stuck with FrostWire for now.

For everyone still on PPC that's having problems with connections try PoisonedAlt.

i was loving Poisoned for a couple of days until i started having problems saving my ProTools recordings onto my Lacie Disk (i couldn't!). i had to erase my entire brand new mini mac and reinstall everything. now my computer works great, but i'm staying away from Poisened.

I somehow doubt that poisoned could have done that...

Even since I got my hey hard drive and had to re-download Poisoned Gnutella and Ares wont load, anyone know what I can do?

Poisond used to run seemlessly with my Router (Link Sys 54mbps wireless w/four port ethernet hub) and while also running limewire. now, running either causes the other's port forwarding to mess up and as a result i have to reset the router for the applications to recognize the forwarding. also, i have to restart for uploads to work on either.

before the last update i got, i could download within limewire and it would be doing the same in poisoned automatically and yet there would be only one import to itunes since the two applications somehow spoke to one another. i like to use poisoned as a fast track interface and limewire for gnutella.

also, poisoned no longer recognizes shared files that are within music folders for the artists. thus, i can only share 6GB instead of the 60GB i actually have. please email jhaack1@hotmail.com for more info.

and keep up the good work.
posioned is the only serious file sharing program for mac besides lime (which is gnutella only) - thus, i really want to see an official 1.0 release with some serious statistics and advanced preferences. also, if you can fix all these problems and the glitches that others recommend, then you can probably switch people from limewire as well . . .
