Transmission comes with Windows-based bittorrent client




The release of an official beta build of the BitTorrent client Transmission for Windows seems only a matter of time. Transmission is a popular client for Mac OS X and Linux. There’s been times an unofficial Windows Qt port.

Thereafter, the versions 2.91 and 2.92 successively appeared in order to solve the problems. The latter can also itself ransomware the possible removal of an OS-X system.

As yet, the official beta for Windows is not yet published on the download section of the Transmission site. This is because the makers are still waiting for a Microsoft certificate to sign the software. In that case, Microsoft does not notice the software to be potentially dangerous.

The authors themselves say, through developer mike.dld at the forum that they would rather not offer official unsigned Windows build on the main site. On March 3 mike.dld announced that he signed a beta, with his personal code, wants to offer. Because it is the first official release, there is still a lot of new code that has not been tested in the wild, “even though it is based on the Qt client with a lot of existing code.

According to some in the forum of Transmission should have the release actually still the alpha-label because the difference in quality and features to Linux and OS X versions is still large. It is also possible to fill a client for Windows build from the source, but this requires Minimalist GNU or Cygwin.
