Few days ago Deluge 1.3.0 was released, Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent client for Linux, OS X, Unix and Windows. It uses libtorrent in it’s backend and features multiple user-interfaces including: GTK+, web and console. It has been designed using the client server model with a daemon process that handles all the bittorrent activity. The Deluge daemon is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces being able to connect remotely from any platform.
Deluge features a rich plugin collection; in fact, most of Deluge’s functionality is available in the form of plugins. Deluge was created with the intention of being lightweight and unobtrusive. It is our belief that downloading shouldn’t be the primary task on your computer and therefore shouldn’t monopolize system resources. Deluge is not designed for any one desktop environment and will work just fine in GNOME, KDE, XFCE and others. We do our best to adhere to the freedesktop standards.
What’s new in Deluge 1.3.0?
- Fix issue where the save_timer is cancelled when it’s not active
- Fix unhandled exception when adding a torrent to the session
- Moved xdg import so it is not called on Windows, where it is unused. fixes #1343
- Fix key error after enabling a plugin that introduces a new status key
- Ignore global stop ratio related settings in logic, so per torrent ones are used.
- Ensure preferencesmanager only changes intended libtorrent session settings.
- Fix issue when adding torrents without a ‘session’. This can happen when a plugin adds a torrent, like how the AutoAdd? plugin works. The user that adds this torrent will be an empty string.
- Add TorrentFileCompleted? event
