uTorrent 2.0.0 Beta 16546 Released

µTorrent is a small and incredibly popular BitTorrent client.

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.

What's wrong with azureus? I've been using it 3 months and it takes only 60 mb and utorrrent has 30 ~ 50 with full download/upload

Nice job posting what you download. The RIAA will follow you for the rest of your life. :P

Next time please blur the torrents before uploading you can also get banned for not doing so.

Does this still work with the WebUI? I've been wanting to update, but I really don't want to break the WebUI plugin as I use it more than the actual app itself.

I use it, but it scares me that it was bought out by the MPAA. I've tried deluge, but it has some problems with resources, and lots of times won't let me add new torrents.

The MPAA???

If that were true at all, Utorrent would have vanished a long time ago. If it were true they were using it to track people like some believe, the MPAA would have been busting people left and right a long time ago.

You're paranoid. Plain and simple

No it wasn't. It was bought by BitTorrent, Inc, which is not owned by MPAA either.
