µTorrent 2.0 build 16081 beta

µTorrent is an efficient and feature rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little cpu, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.

To get the best torrent speed from your internet connection: only have a small amount of torrents active, and be sure to get your speed settings right in the torrent client. This is even more important when using a wireless connection because some wireless routers can’t cope with all the traffic and will crash / lose connection.

New Setup guide & Speedtest.
Add Moldova to peer flags
UDP tracker support
New installer with EULA, file association
