Bram Cohen has just released the latest version of the official Bittorrent client. The main changes are:
  • 2005-03-07: 4.0.0 is now available.
    Changes since the last stable release:
    • All new queue-based user interface
    • Many options are now modifiable from the interface
    • Lots of other interface improvements
    • Extra stats are visible, for those who like it
    • Remembers what it was doing across restarts
    • New .torrent maker "btmaketorrentgui" replaces "btcompletedir"
    • Better performance, as always
    • License has changed to the BitTorrent Open Source License
    • Torrent fields are correctly created and interpreted as utf8
    • Too many little things to list
    A few technical notes, for those interested:
    • Single port: launchmany can seed and client can download many files from a single port and thread
    • Interface now uses GTK instead of wxWidgets
    • BitTorrent packets are marked as bulk data to make traffic shaping easier

I stil don't like the interface. I'll stick with ABC and hope it gets updated with the new features rapidly.

Kewl, now I will wait when ABC gets updated and then I will enjoy these changes. I might give it a whirl when I get bored.

alright now i agree with you.. (wow. i agreed with kirby. oO :p) the interface looks... kinda bad. for some reason it reminds me of kazaa. and crap i cant seem to get as high of speeds on this one either.. :( havent gone any faster than 5 or 6 kbs even though i set my upload rate to like 164. :(
