Software Update: µTorrent 2.0 Build 16222 Beta

A new beta of µTorrent version 2.0 was released on Thursday. µTorrent is a very complete BitTorrent client that uses very little memory and processor, and the size of the program itself is minimal. The most important improvement in version 2.0 is the support for uTP: a way of data transport where high reliability and minimal latencies are the spearheads. Since build 16126, the following changes and improvements have been made:

New features:

  • Added versioned help files.

Bug fixes:

  • Setup guide fixes
  • installer with UAC
  • Allow UDP trackers in the first tier when creating torrents
  • UDP Tracker retries three times instead of two
  • potential crash in installer
  • Crashes when removing labels
  • selection of labels over 256 characters in length
  • multiple HTTP download crashes
  • http seed fix for multifile torrents
  • uTP connections that are upload rate limited will not have their max window size grow indefinitely
  • Vista and Windows 7 FW rules are created for all profiles
