BitTorrent Inc. leaks the screenshots of its upcoming Mainline client version 8: an updated version offers users channels they can browse through to search for content. Besides, it provides the option to rate and comment on torrents.
BitTorrent Inc. recently took advantage of the Consumer Electronics Show underway in Las Vegas by releasing the details of version 8 of its upcoming Mainline client. The event is part of so-called “Project Chrysalis” which BitTorrent Inc. has been embarked upon for several months now.
BitTorrent Inc. announced the project in December, saying that Chrysalis rather represents a metamorphosis than a radical aesthetic and UI overhaul, or important new features. The representative of the company described the project as “a new beginning, with all the power of current BitTorrent technology its users know and love remaining at the core”.
Recently the Consumer Electronics Show has provided BitTorrent Inc. with the platform to show what users may expect from prospective versions of its Mainline client.
First of all, BitTorrent Mainline version 8 represents a radically overhauled user interface, which was developed to simplify their experience and make the service much more easier than ever.
Simon Morris, Vice President of Product Management BitTorrent Inc. announced that part of the new look is the creation of channels apart from the top of the application which you can select and browse through for a more convenient and faster downloading experience. Besides, the client’s users are able to rate and comment on torrents.
Mainline version 8 also offers its users the capability for transcoding and pushing content to different devices and external media.
Beta version of the Mainline client is expected by the end of March.

|The question I have is that if the mainline BitTorrent client is developed and maintained by the uTorrent team (after that whole merger/purchase), will the uTorrent client eventually undergo the same GUI overhaul since, as a rule, the uTorrent client is the first to be worked on with the mainline BitTorrent client being secondary and usually a step or more behind in versions and features?|
|I'm kind of intrigued with this (the channels). From what I understand, bit torrent has always had that kind of abstraction between the client, the downloadable torrent files, and the sites you get them from. Does this mean a shift away from that kind of model, and will this raise the ire of the copyright morons even more?||
