A new build of uTorrent got released about 6 hours earlier. If you have enabled automatic updates this should already be downloaded and installed by now. Anyway this build (12639) only have two changes over the previous 12616 build. A developer note on this build is posted below:
12639 is out and on the automatic updater for all users. The only fix since 12616 is to prevent µTorrent from showing the installer dialog when upgrading from an older version. There are no other changes, and if you are already on 12616, there is no reason to update.
Tracker admins, please allow both builds (12616 and 12639). The user-agent is identical for both.
Nevertheless it’s only a few kilobytes so I can’t see why you shouldn’t download the new build and stay up do date (specially if you are a hard core torrent downloader).
µTorrent is an efficient and feature rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little cpu, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.
