Firestorm 188.8.131.52478 released to the wild!
This release has been a long time coming and took an enormous amount of work to get out to you in its stable state. It contains a lot of new features, loads of bug fixes, crash fixes and stability and compatibility improvements. Along with the usual formats, we are also offering a fully supported Windows 64-bit version and a Linux x64 Beta.
Change Log: For a complete list of features, changes and fixes, please visit the CHANGE LOG and/or view Inara Pey’s BLOG POST, which has in-depth descriptions of most of the important stuff. A list of key items is included below, as well, but is by no means complete.
Clean Install: We always advise that you perform clean installs when updating. http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/fs_clean_reinstall
Downloads: Can be found on our Downloads page linked at the top navigation bar of this website. (Please note we are using a new download server for this release and have no idea how well it will perform. Please be patient if downloads are slow.)
Support: As always, if you have any issues or questions please feel free to contact support. However, we ask that you please be patient during the first 48 hours, as this is when we will be most busy, and we are all just volunteers trying to help in our spare time.
