Transmission 0.5 is due to be released this weekend, feature's have been frozen and only bug killing and optimisation shall be undertook until the next release.

If you've not used Transmission before, take a look at http://transmission.m0k.org/

If you wish to help squash bugs, then grab a nightly build, or build yourself from SVN (information on both is provided on the Transmission site).

Have been using this since SPeedY_B recommend it. Really nice, light weight client that does what you need it to. I've even gotten around to compiling my own from SVN. :)

I had it compiling nightly from CVS before the site went down a few weeks ago, never got round to making a script to get the SVN, but there's nightly builds for that anyway :)

Didn't author move project from CVS to SVN after the server crash problem? Also I've noticed the guy doing the nightly builds hasn't put any up in almost a week (pre-0.5).

Yup, the change was made after the crash.

Haven't been monitoring the nightlies recently, just tend to stick with releases.

Well, hasn't been anything really changed since 0.5 was released. Looking at changelog shows 1 update.

Yeah, have checked the forums and seems like many features are being worked on (DHT, ect.). Oh and seems nightly builds are still being made, they are just above (middle) the other SVN builds for some reason. :)

Due to some issues with Transmission it was banned from a large tracker last night. If this spreads to others it could be bad news.

It's not a big issue. The Oink guys are pretty good, they'll un-ban it once the problem has been resolved.

Personally though, I've not had any over-downloading problems with it.

Yar, same. I hope it gets sorted soon.

Only one of those I've used or would consider is AZureus and it pretty much eats my machine alive after a few hours. :(

Just for reference, the problem has been fixed in SVN builds. Oink are unlikely to un-ban the client until 0.6 is out.

Also in SVN is the ability to auto stop when a certain ratio has been reached. Spiffeh :D

Yeah this is really nice. Have been checking almost daily since the ban. Both seem to work well for me, can't wait for 0.6 to get the ban lifted.
