|gotta love the elitist snobs who always say older versions are better - there's alway one in the comments.|
You ever play a video game, where everything is so well done - then a new one comes out, and they've mucked up the best features of the previous versions..? Well, just when you think the utorrent folks have made their best version, another one comes out, and it's even better. These guys know exactly what the users want, and they give it.
I've always instantly upgraded utorrent, but this one appears to be such a leap forward that I think I'll wait for the stable - but I will get it.
|I had a major lack of uploading speeds when using the 3.0 beta. Seriously. Let a torrent sit uploading for 15 minutes and it never went over 40 kB/s. Reverted back to the 2.2.1 version and speeds were normal again (200 kB/s).|
|Stable Version Is Required,This Falcon Project(utorrent 3.0 Beta)Is Quite Exciting.Thanks For The Info Sam.|
|16 knowumsayin ; I don't see it as elitist to stay with an older version until a new one is proven. I've been burned by betas. I'm looking forward to a new version but I, too, will wait for the release version. you wanna be a beta tester? Great. Thank you for your service to the community.|
|Think I will stick with 2.2 for now. The old saying if it aint broke dont fix it rule.|

|I've tryed both beta and stable versions of two "Newer Versions" and they are both stinko; awful- yuck so sticking with 1.8.5 works great with vista HP always amazes me how you can t get it right before it gets released.|
Huge shame no one cares to have numerious test runs oh well beats me why not . .
|i got that|
|cobrin has a point. 1.61 was and still is the fastest version|
|I dont notice a speed difference or any problems with torrents on the new beta. Will keep beta version. I'm running 64 bit quad core amd 3.0 processor and windows 7 64 bit ultimate.|
|Guys remember when software is in beta that means it is for testing only. It is ment for you to test it and provide feedback to the company that developed it. Your feedback is what they rely on to fix the flaws for the final stable version.|
|Thankkks its Awesome, Can't wait for Stable Release||
