Frogblast is a clone of the Hotline 1.2.3 client software. Frogblast is the result of many, many months of work and is written exclusively for Mac OS X using Apple's Cocoa APIs. It supports the entire 1.2.3 feature set, including administrator functions (user booting/banning), account creation, editing, and now threaded news. Frogblast was written for Mac OS X from the ground up, and offers a far better user experience than any of the other available Hotline clients, including the official one.
What's New
Version 1.2.4 adds the following:
  • Fixed a the Download Queue bug where files would stop early.
  • Fixed a bug that would prevent files from downloading completely when on hxd 0.2.8 servers.
  • Fixed a number of crashing bugs.
  • Changed the sound format to aiff to try to avoid sound problems introduced with Jaguar.
  • Fixed a bug (again) that could cause uploads to stop early when on Windows servers.
  • Fixed some problems when uploading files with multi-byte characters in their names

It doesn't let you type in the first few letters of stuff to find things quickly in folders. Need to use manual to use icons.

As good as HotLine's client and and better, even if it takes a bit to get used to if you're a seasoned HotLine user. One of the best things is with all the new features, there are intuitive key commands to go with them. About as good as OS X apps get.

By far the best Hotline client. The only area it may lack for some users is features. Its the most effecient for LAN usage (easily achieving 5-10MB/sec) where as many other clients cannot get near this speed. But overall the interface is quite good.
