µTorrent 3.2 released

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.

Micro-Sized Yet Feature Filled

Most of the features present in other BitTorrent clients are present in µTorrent, including bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading and Mainline DHT (compatible with BitComet). Additionally, µTorrent supports the Protocol Encryption joint specification (compatible with Azureus 2.4.0.0 and above, BitComet 0.63 and above) and peer exchange.

Resource-Friendly

µTorrent was written with efficiency in mind. Unlike many torrent clients, it does not hog valuable system resources - typically using less than 6MB of memory, allowing you to use the computer as if it weren't there at all. Additionally, the program itself is contained within a single executable less than 220 KB in size.

Skinnable and Localized

Various icon, toolbar graphic and status icon replacements are available, and creating your own is very simple. µTorrent also has support for localization, and with a language file present, will automatically switch to your system language. If your language isn't available, you can easily add your own, or edit other existing translations to improve them!

Actively Developed and Improved

The developer puts in a lot of time working on features and making things more user-friendly. Releases only come out when they're ready, with no schedule pressures, so the few bugs that appear are quickly addressed and fixed.

Release highlights:

  • Show when files are allocating instead of disk overloa
  • Make the user interface use less CPU
  • Refresh Add Torrent dialog with magnet link metadata

I'm testing an alternative cross platform (Windows/Linux) client called TidoTorrent, that has
been developed by a friend, as an eventual replacement for µTorrent. He doesn't like the
way µTorrent is going with unnecessary additional bloatware, and I'm inclined to agree.

Asrokhel said,

Why don't you give out the info of where to get it,
that way more people can test it for your friend?


It's still got a fair bit of debugging code to clear before a public beta is considered.
I'll have a word with him on a status update tomorrow.
