Transmission 2.10 BitTorrent client released
The Transmission developers have issued version 2.10 of their popular cross-platform BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing client. According to the developers, the latest update addresses a number of issues found in the previous release and includes several performance improvements across all platforms, including various CPU optimisations and memory cache reductions aimed at reducing disk I/O.
Transmission 2.10 now features support for automatically stopping idle seeding torrents and three new command-line utilities for editing, viewing and creating torrent files. Web Client updates include the addition of a peer list to the inspector, a new compact view mode and support for sorting by size and filtering by active and finished. Other changes include cookies.txt file support, the ability to display file sizes and speeds in base 10 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard systems and gzip compression support in the RPC server.
Further information about the update, including a full list of changes, can be found in the release notes. Transmission 2.10 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Users that currently have Transmission installed can use the built-in "Check for Updates" feature.
