    Transmission 1.0 has just been released so fire it up and download the update! :)

    There is a new UI which has been modified to better suit Leopard. there is a new encryption option in the preferences which allows you to "Prefer encrypted peers". there is also a new dock icon which has a "quitting" label when you close transmission, presumabley to stop users from thinking it is non responsive while it closes connections. here are some piccies.

    The new UI and "Quiting..." badge have been in the nightlies for 3-4 days now.

    It looks a lot better in Leopard then in Tiger IMHO.

    Even though I'm back to Azureus, I'm most excited about Transmission, simply because it's the BT client most under development in OS X land. If these chaps keep it up, they're going to be far and away the best client available within a year or so. Almost every other client is either out of development or banned or heading in some awful direction. Azureus is like Vista in a bottle; there's no reason to move past a version released a full year ago. The µTorrent project is dead in the water. Tomato Torrent is slightly more productive than coding a torrent client yourself. The "official" client is two years behind the version on Windows, which is just a repackaged version of µTorrent. And so on. The only two real clients on this OS are Transmission and Azureus, and one of them has a much brighter future than the other (as long as they work harder to prevent such fiascos as .95)...

    I really want to like Transmission but every major release since I think .7 or so has been giving me nightmares. It'll randomly garble downloads and sometimes cause certain transfers to freeze at about 90% or so and yet still download data. I left it on over a weekend once and came home to find that it had downloaded in excess of 13GB of useless crap. :(

    I'll wait it out for a week or so and wait to see if there are still any bugs. For now BitRocket will have to do.

    Have you bothered to try and figure out why it does not work??

    I personally turn Upnp OFF of my routers and go about things the manual way. Upnp is not exactly a good thing from what I have read. It might make things easier but it can also cause problems.

    Maybe try portforward.com to get everything up and running so it works.

    I love Transmission and this release; however, I'm not at all crazy about the new look. :(

    The addition of a peer connections setting helps a lot, as I recall the previous unmodifiable value was too low for some torrents and one of the reasons I still preferred Azureus. The new UI is nice too. Now lets see if it plays nice with Leopard's firewall.

    Can you limit connections to less than 200? 200 is too many in a student flat with a Netgear router as it makes the rest of the internet t3h slowness.

    Wow. This version looks great. Is it just me, or did they update the icon a bit too?

    Best of all, it doesn't hang around for 30 secs after quitting. Looks nice too.

    Not sure what I think of the new UI. I liked the old one, this one is a lot more slick though. Updates are always good, they feed my update addiction:D

    Mine did an update earlier today but I don't notice any difference.
    It restarted too. Maybe I need to restart it fully :confused:
