uTorrent Gearing Up for uTorrent 2.0


There was a time when uTorrent updates were quiet releases, with relatively little fanfare. Suddenly, there was a newer version than the one people were using. Now though, with the upgrade to uTorrent 2.0, there’s a lot more buzz about it.


The uTorrent forum is carrying word that the beta version of uTorrent 2.0 boasts some features that will be fantastic news for anyone torrenting from Ireland. One of the most interesting of these is the relatively simple ability to track exactly how much you’ve transferred (both upload and download) and to respond when you reach a certain stage. This is pretty much ideal for anyone living in a world where internet is capped at XGB per month.

The other big news with this update is the addition of UDP, which is basically just a change of protocol on the tracker’s side that uses significantly less processor. As the uTorrent team points out, “It’s important for us to support this because trackers have limited resources, so this should allow them to support many more users with their current hardware and not crash under the load.”

All in all, it seems as though relatively little will change (on the user end, at least) with the release of uTorrent 2.0. If nothing else, we’re just glad to see that the application that many see as one of the best torrent clients out there is still going strong as it hits version 2.0.
