    Cool TF -uTorrent Takes a Leap to Version 3.0


    The uTorrent team has integrated several of its experimental projects into the new 3.0 alpha release. The latest version of the main client now includes remote control, Apps and the ability to stream video torrents. In addition, uTorrent 3.0 has taken measures to protect VPN users from having their real IP-address exposed to the public.

    utorrentBitTorrent Inc. has been very active with the development of uTorrent during the past months. Earlier this year the company pushed out two experimental clients, codenamed Falcon and Griffin.

    The Griffin branch of uTorrent adds Apps for uTorrent support, allowing users to easily install extensions and add custom features. The Falcon project enables users to stream torrent video files and access their client remotely through a secure web-interface.

    After having tested the two projects in the wild for a few months, the uTorrent team has now decided to integrate both projects into the alpha release of uTorrent 3.0. With this latest release uTorrent literally takes a giant leap from version 2.1 to 3.0, marking the significance of the fuller featured client.

    Aside from merging the two experimental projects, the latest alpha of uTorrent has patched a major security flaw through which VPN users could have their real IP-address exposed. By default, uTorrent has disabled IPv6 which causes this vulnerability, while adding an option in the advanced settings to enable it for those who don’t use a VPN.

    Together with the new 3.0 alpha, uTorrent has released several new Apps including µBrowse. “As before, all Apps are completely optional, so you can choose to add only the ones you like in order to keep your client as lightweight as possible,” Simon Morris, BitTorrent’s VP of Product Management commented.

    The uTorrent Apps specification is expected to be opened up to the public soon, so third party developers can create their own Apps for the client. Among other things this will allow torrent site operators to embed their website’s search functionality in uTorrent.

    Although the new features in uTorrent 3.0 are for Windows users only, progress has been steady on the Mac side as well. After several years of development, a stable version of the Mac client finally came out two weeks ago. The Linux version of uTorrent is still a work in progress and will be released later this summer.

    I will try soon the 3.0 Falcon beta. I'm in particular interested at the security for IP expose of the users. I learn something about VPN... But I don't remember if my connection is VPN, how I can check it ?

    PS: Here you can see a screen of the Falcon version... In the options are added setting for DNA downloads and for video streaming, maybe I will test it the next days

    I think not but in any case my IP is always exposed. Maybe they should change some thing in uTorrent about that.

    No, because you can select what you want and what not. For this uTorrent will always be a very tiny bittorrent client

    PS: Someone are trying the beta ? It work ok ?

    I tried to do some tests with Falcon, specific version: uTorrent 3.0 Alpha Build 20507:

    1. Installation: Removed Aks Toolbar !!!
    2. Configuration: Always the same...
    3. VPN security: I don't see anything...
    4. Using: Is always uTorrent more or less is same as 2.0.
    5. Memory usage: Is very tiny, like 2.0.
    6. News: Configuration for DNA power download ( ) added streaming contect wich you can set and choose your personal link (useful ? )
    7. Important news maybe useful: Added Apps ! They're similar at Vuze plug-in and you can choose it from apps windows, for that will be always a tiny client and if you want you can add these add-on
    Now I see 9 addon: OutSpark, ClearBits, uBrowse, Tetronimoes, TuneUp, VirusGuard, Raptr Free Games, uGadget and VODO.

    I repeat: I'm not an expert of uTorrent and I don't know what these new feature do (like the old ). If you are really interested to that beta try it ! This is only IMHO !

    However I can tell you that at first glance I find myself well and I like the latest changes that have been made and especially that uTorrent is undergoing an important development for security and keeps the lightness that sets it apart.

    This is another point for that earn on emule and pushes me to change network.
