Software Update: µTorrent 1.2.3 beta build 358

Spread the love

Version 1.2.3 beta of µTorrent just got a minor update from build 356 to 358. This BitTorrent client has become very popular in a short time. This is partly due to the size of the program of only 112KB and a particularly low load on the memory and the processor. Furthermore, it contains useful features such as multiple simultaneous downloads, the ability to set bandwidth usage and support for protocol extensions and UPnP. The most important change in version 1.2.3 is support for unicode, a feature that only works under Windows 2000 and XP. In this release, the Torrent maker, which was broken in the previous version, has been fixed:

This version of 1.2.3 works both with Windows 9x/ME and 2K/XP. Of course, unicode only works on 2K/XP.

Please note that significant changes have been made to the 9x/ME code (It supports both ANSI/Unicode from the same executable), so things might have broken.

The torrent maker wasn’t working in the previous beta. The new beta also enhances support for chinese torrents.[break]
