As one of the Transmission developers, I wanted to speak up and make myself available for questions and feedback. I like gnome-bt but, as you'd expect, I'd love for Ubuntu to use Transmission.
To answer a couple of earlier questions: (1) Sebastien Bacher wrote: > Could you explain what are the gnome-btdownload issues and > what transmission-gtk does better? Like gnome-bt, Transmission tries to be simple and "just work", but Transmission also has MSE/PE encryption, supports port forwarding for UPnP/NAT-PMP routers, has the ability to choose which files in a torrent to not download, has the ability to prioritize which files to download first, and provides a gui for creating new torrents.

Transmission 1.00 has been downloaded 234,014 times since it was released five days ago. cheers, Charles -- ubuntu-desktop mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-desktop
