After a number of beta builds and four Release Candidate (RC) builds, uTorrent v2.0 final has been released. It has been a long wait for fans of this popular BitTorrent client – final version has hit the web almost 6 months after the first public beta was released. As usual, no new features have been introduced in the final build that weren’t available in RC4 and changes are limited to a couple of bug fixes. Major new changes in uTorrent 2.0 (as revealed earlier) remain to be UDP support, transfer cap feature, more user friendly setup dialog, UI improvements, etc. What’s even more important is that uTorrent continutes to be lightweight client – here’s an app that hasn’t (at least not yet) got bloated with every new release.
In addition to the newly added features, uTorrent 2.0 retains almost all of the popular features available in 1.X builds. This includes simultaneous downloads, bandwidth scheduler, RSS downloader and trackerless support (Mainline DHT). Changes in build 17920 is mentioned below (changelog quoted from forum):
2010-01-25: Version 2.0 (build 17920)
- Change: update TCP/IP overhead estimation
- Fix: handle wrapping in uTP timestamps
- Fix: Crash in setup dialog when dialog is exited before server list is downloaded.
