Release 1.9 adds chat client, e-commerce functions, and even long-distance service.
Saying that it is taking longer than anticipated to roll out its newfangled Morpheus 2.0 peer-to-peer (P-to-P) file swapping software, StreamCast Networks is releasing an interim update to the current Morpheus Preview Edition Monday.
The upgrade, dubbed Morpheus 1.9, boasts a host of new features that set it apart from the current version, which was rapidly cobbled together when the company switched from the FastTrack P-to-P technology platform to the open-source Gnutella platform last March. The switch came after more than a million of Morpheus users were shut out of the Morpheus network in what the company called a massive denial-of-service attack.
The 1.9 version is still based on Gnutella but is not Mac compatible.
