Vuze, the popular Mac OS X BitTorrent
client, has been updated to version 22.214.171.124 adding drive detection for the PlayStation Portable, less CPU usage for seeding, UI fixes, and more. The piece of software is free to download and install on any kind of Mac, as long as it’s running Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
According to the release notes for Vuze (formerly Azureus) 126.96.36.199, new features include the aforementioned Drive Detection one for Devices in Mac OS X (for PSP devices), as well as the addition of a factory option to allow switchable unchoke algorithms. Other changes comprise less CPU usage for Seeding Rules, the ability to only create the transcode directories when required, and a properly updated OS X platform component. Corrected bugs include: fixed Speedtest not working; OS X 10.6 support – opening torrent from file; OS X 10.6 support – not getting data from connected peers; and fixed deadlock during UI initialisation.
Vuze is similar to uTorrent, a popular BitTorrent client mostly used by PC owners. The app greatly extends the original Python client's feature set, and can manage multiple downloads at once, from a single window, or offer detailed, real-time download statistics with export to XML, advanced download and seeding-management rules, configuration and torrent-creation wizards, embedded tracker for an easy and automated hosting of your own files, PeerGuardian IP address filtering and web browser, and console UIs. The piece of software can also seed from read-only media.
The cross-platform BitTorrent client makes transferring files via the BitTorrent protocol a breeze, using a new, split-window MyTorrents view with support for categories, and advanced downloading / seeding / queuing rules for powerful and automated torrent management, as well as a customizable user interface. Vuze supports a total of 27 available languages. Vuze is now compatible with all Mac OS X versions starting with 10.3 (Panther) and ending with 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
