Transmission 2.20 BitTorrent client brings improved IPv6-only tracker support
Nearly two months after Transmission 2.13 arrived, the Transmission Project has issued version 2.20 of its cross-platform BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing client. According to the developers, the latest update now remembers downloaded files when a drive is unplugged, and features faster parsing of bencoded data, as well as better support for IPv6-only trackers.
The ability to shutdown Transmission sessions via RPC has been added, and NAT-PMP and UPnP now also map the UDP port. Other changes include improved support for running scripts when a torrent finishes downloading and fixes for multiple bugs found in the previous update. The Mac version of Transmission includes several interface tweaks, support for ZIP and other compression formats in the block-list downloader, and fixes for German and Spanish localisations.
More details about the latest update, including a full list of changes, can be found in the release notes. Transmission 2.20 is available to download for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Alternatively, users that currently have Transmission installed can use the built-in "Check for Updates" feature.
