I switched back to Azureus recently, just because it handles torrents better, in terms of queing and not overloading my connection.

Only problem is, it would never open a .torrent file from the finder, or anything for that matter - you had to drag it in.

All this is fixed with the new Azureus 2.5.0.0!!

Available here!!

:D

Downloaded torrents to my desktop would be automatically opened by Azureus and the file trashed so it's all automated. That's what I like about Azureus... no fuss no muss piracy. :)

I checked the update just 2 hours ago and it was still a release candidate. Cool they got it released as a final so soon. Updating now. :)

That's odd, I don't recall ever having to drag and drop the torrent into the app, I'd just double click on the files icon within finder and it would open right up.

Downloading now! :D

Is there a 2.5.0.0 for Intel?

Is the 2.5.0.0 version at the link for PowerPC only or Intel as well?

I ask because the Intel Wiki link doesnt have 2.5 listed.

I just restarted my client (Intel) and was greeted with the automatic update to 2.5.0.0.

Are you sure about that? I had issues on both platforms!
Hmm, I'd never had the problem on PowerPC and always had it on Intel, so I assumed that it was a processor-related issue.

It never worked for me either on PPC.

Downloading the new version now, so hopefully this will fix it.

Bit W00t!

Can I just say how happy I am that this is out!

I have to use Az for the majority of sites out there...and the older version was so messed up for me.

I could never get the pop up windows to close, and I could never get it to quit, I always had to force quit.

With this update all those issues are fixed....!!

This is so great...!

No, that hasn't been necessary for a while now (for my system, at least).
I downloaded 2.4.0.2 two weeks ago and I still had to get that special version of Azureus. I'll try to see if 2.5.0.0 launches properly.

Nor did it ever work for me. Appears to work now though! Also looks like the interface is improved a little more (proper OS X columns).
Plus, the whole thing seems snappier™

I had a look at the what's new section & it specifically states that, for OSX, opening via the finder is a new feature in this version. I thought it was just a bug that it didn't do it before, but apparently not.

Mine used to work on my iMac G5. Then I bought my mbp and it never worked. So who knows? Only thing that matters is that it works now.:cool:

You probably have the upload (or download) cap set to a number too close to the speed of your internet connection. That'll guarantee horrible performance, since there's no bandwidth left for browsing or whatever.

I've noticed that on high-latency connections (cable modem) you need a pretty big gap to make it work smoothly. When I switched to a very low-latency DSL connection, I could push closer to the connection speed without affecting things.

I always have the uploads capped at 10-15 kbps, I admit I've never capped my download speed though. Thanks gonna try that.

Great news, thanks for the head's up - Azureus is my torrent client of choice! :cool: I'm still on a PPC Mac so I assume everything will work just fine...
