µTorrent 2.0 beta drops anchor

Throttle ye not

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The upcoming second version of µTorrent, the world's most popular BitTorrent client, has moved into beta.

It comes loaded with new "transfer cap settings" to help users whose ISP bandwidth is regularly throttled to better track their usage in megabytes. They can also stop the client torrenting when that limit is exceeded.

"Currently, you can configure the time interval, the data cap and whether it should stop based on only download, upload, or both combined," said the firm, before nodding in the direction of anyone worried about where their data might end up.

"As a privacy notice, this traffic data is not sent back to us or anyone."

The first µTorrent v2.0 beta additionally comes with back-end support for uTP.

"uTP is an alternative communication method for BitTorrent traffic that allows the client to automatically regulate its bandwidth usage to avoid adversely impacting your internet connection," said the outfit.

"This will allow you or other users on the network to download their torrents without killing your connection without any additional setup required."
