When you download WinMX, you're getting WinMX and only WinMX, no bundled spyware, no ads, no B.S.

Upcoming Beta Tests:
WinMX v3.55 BETA
This version includes a very important upgrade to the core WPNP primary connection protocol, and an important change to the Search Window. With the protocol upgrade it is hoped search coverage will be near-100%, which will translate into vastly-improved search results, especially for rare files. The protocol upgrade is also a preliminary step toward a persistent hotlist (which will be in an upcoming test.)
Test Starting Soon!
Estimated Duration: 1-2 weeks
Release Status: Unknown, dependant on test duration and results.
WinMX v3.60 BETA
File downloads are sourced and managed by a completely new system in this version. AFS/AEQ are gone, also file mismatches should no longer be a problem. Minor WPNP file transfer protocol upgrades. Fragmented file support added.
Test Not Started Yet
Estimated Duration: 2 weeks
Release Status: Immediate release unlikely, network turn-over req'd.
