Ok, for all you bittorrent lovers out there, new version of this great (if not the best) bittorrent client, it is wierd that the main page doesnt say what is new in this release, but it is available for download from the Download page
Azureus works perfect for me, fast & stable , and I like this auto updater funktion, it check version and update it, not only the main program, but also all the plugins I have installed, it keeps me up-to-date
what i dont like on azureus is the fact that at least for me it isnt as fast to load, also uses too much resources, and the worst of all is when i get things like: "36mb downloaded (9.8mb discarted)" i mean thats just too much
i prefer bitcomet over the other bittorrent clients myself, simple very low resources used and better connecting to other users
Its dying quickly today. First the big torrent site and then all the little ones. Every single popular torrent sight is being shutdown today. Makes me sick in the stomach. This is gonna be really sucky Christmas.
I personally prefer BitComet (tried them all) : low on resources, fast downloads (at least they seem faster to me when compared to BitTornado or Azeurus (sp?) ), simple & clean inteface...
About the torrent sites shutting down, there are still alot of them left (PirateBay for example, their replys to C&D letters are simply hilarious ! or torrentreactor, or newtorrents) and otherwise there are tons of IRC channels with torrents.
Usenet would be perfect if you wouldn't have to pay a monthly fee to get access to a good server (only things i can donwload thru my ISP are eBooks & maybe mp3's).
Anyway, there's still eDonkey if it comes to the worst...
