Ubuntu netbook

The latest stable version of the popular Bittorrent client µTorrent is version 1.83. But the developers decided that the next major release packed in too much to simply call it µTorrent 1.9, so the next version will be called version 2.0. And µTorrent 2.0 beta is already available for download.

The update brings:

  • Support for UDP trackers, a new protocol for BitTorrent trackers that uses less CPU power on the tracker end
  • Improved setup dialog with built-in speed test
  • Transfer Cap options that help you track and control how much data you transfer (which helps if your ISP caps your data transfer rates)

The beta is only available for Windows at the moment. The latest version of µTorrent for OS X is 0.9.1.2.
