Transmission, the most popular non-commercial BitTorrent application, has made a huge step forward when releasing its new version 2.0. The client, considered “community driven” and installed on millions of PCs all over the world, will now be even faster and smarter than earlier.
The first public release of Transmission client occurred almost 5 years ago. Since then the multi-platform free program has gained a firm user-base of millions of people worldwide. It became the default BitTorrent application on different distributions of Linux, this including popular Ubuntu. Moreover, Transmission is also finds itself among the most-used Mac BitTorrent programs.
Last week, after releasing the stable version 2.0, Transmission could consider itself reaching an important level of its development. The client has often been praised by the BitTorrent users for performing full-featuring while having light weight. Now it has geared up even more in order to satisfy the increasing requests of modern BitTorrent users.
For those dedicated to this BitTorrent client, it’ll be interesting to learn about some of the most important enhancements in the latest Transmission version.
As its developers say, first of all, the code of the application is much faster and smarter. What they did was profiling the code for CPU bottlenecks and eliminating them. All the processes including startup, blocklists and verifying local information became faster, while detecting and processing network lag are now much smarter.
As for twenty four/seven remote seedboxes alongside with headless and embedded systems, the creators have made client-daemon easier to build, also added some hooks for scripts and reduced the memory footprint, making it one of the smallest, if not the very smallest, of any BitTorrent application.
Transmission stays aside from bigger clients like uTorrent or Vuze, because it is volunteer-based and non-commercial. However, this sometimes comes with a downside, like, for example, a future development that depends only on the client’s community of volunteers. What this means is that the development would happen only when the willing volunteers are available, for example, a Windows programmers willing to work on the Windows version of the client. Until then, the expansion choices of Transmission will remain limited to the alternative platforms, gaining the title of the most popular BitTorrent application without a Windows version.
