Ares 2016 (2.4.2) is the latest version of this popular peer-to-peer (P2P) software, available since last May.
Although there are no significant changes from the previous release, Ares 2.4.2 is now more stable and powerful than before, while some bugs have been solved and now it’s fully compatible with Windows 10, Microsoft’s latest operating system.
Therefore, attending to the changelog of Ares 2.4.2, it’s highly recommended to upgrade if you use any previous version, so don’t hesitate and download Ares for free from this website.
How Ares 2.4.2 works
The main use of Ares 2016 is file sharing (with special focus on music downloads above all), but of course it’s also possible to download movies, ebooks, software and all types of files*. Furthermore, the program also allows the download of torrents, so there is no need to install any other app of this kind, since Ares works seamlessly with the BitTorrent protocol since its latest version.
The behavior of Ares 2.4.2 is identical to what we were used to with previous releases: all we have to do is just search what we want to download (from the main window of the program) and a list of files will emerge, which means that they are available to download directly from other users on the spot.
Other interesting features are online radio, chat rooms or even an embedded multimedia player, so we can preview the files to be downloaded before the task gets 100% completed.
Ares 2016 is an Open Source software, totally free since its launch in 2002, so you’ll never have to pay for using it and it doesn’t show any ads at all. Free means free.
