Deluge 1.3.7

Deluge

Deluge is a full-featured  BitTorrent client for Linux, OS X, Unix and Windows. It uses  libtorrent in it's backend and features multiple user-interfaces including: GTK+, web and console. It has been designed using the client server model with a daemon process that handles all the bittorrent activity. The Deluge daemon is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces being able to connect remotely from any platform.

Deluge features a rich plugin collection; in fact, most of Deluge's functionality is available in the form of plugins. Deluge was created with the intention of being lightweight and unobtrusive.

Deluge has a wide-array of features, including:

  • Core/UI split allowing Deluge to run as a daemon
  • Connect remotely to the Deluge daemon
  • Web UI
  • Console UI
  • GTK+ UI
  • BitTorrent Protocol Encryption
  • Mainline DHT
  • Local Peer Discovery (aka LSD)
  • FAST protocol extension

  • Configurable bandwidth scheduler
  • Password protection

  • And much more!

Deluge has a VERY messy codebase, lots and lots of Python components, whereas qBittorrent is streamlined and doesn't take up as much disk space or have as many files when installed. Deluge's program files folder is just a mess once it's installed. Development is another thing entirely, the project management is too unorganised.

I used to help with development, but I find the dev team's attitude too arrogant so I switched to helping with qBittorrent. LibTorrent on the other hand is fantastic as an engine. Arvid Norberg is a great guy, LibTorrent is the best torrenting engine ever and I'm proud to help with qBittorrent and LibTorrent :)

when i realized that utorrent is a piece of garbage, i started trying out most of the alternatives, ive tried this, transmission and qbittorrent, but ive stayed with qbittorrent, because it was the one to get the most updates


for a moment i thought deluge was abandoned, its good thing that not the case

I knew Deluge has not been updated in a while but had no idea it was more than a year. Good to see it finally updated at least.
