The latest version includes the integration of Skype which allows long distance phone calls using peer-to-peer (P2P) technology. Kazaa v3.0 also offers advanced search capabilities and a free Weblog trial.
Sharman Networks spokesperson Nikki Hemming said the launch of Kazaa v3.0 provides a platform for the company to showcase its future vision of P2P.
She added that Kazaa will continue its innovation despite "narrow-minded attempts by others to stymie P2P technology through litigation, boycotts and legislation."
"With the recent U.S. Federal Appeals Court decision affirming that peer-to-peer software is legal, we expect to continue innovating and enhancing the experience for Kazaa users across the globe," Hemming said.
Kazaa v3.0 also offers users a free Weblog trial through an affiliate program with TypePad and includes improved search capabilities with up to 3,000 more results per search.
