Software Update: Vuze

Spread the love

Version of Vuze has been released. This Java-written Bittorrent client, formerly known as Azureus, has among other things the ability to prioritize individual torrents or the individual files within a particular torrent. In addition, the program has a built-in tracker, so that sharing your own files is possible. Furthermore, the functionality of Vuze can be increased by means of plugins, such as for example with the Country Locator. In addition to the standard version, there is now also a plus version, which offers a virus scanner for 25 euros, as well as the option to burn CDs and DVDs, and to play media even before the complete download has been completed.
