Use Transmission to manage your torrent downloads

The BitTorrent protocol provides one of the fastest ways to download large files from the internet, but to take advantage of it you need to install a torrent client. Transmission is one such client and it benefits from an extremely small resource footprint as well as the fact that it is incredibly easy to use.

The client is written in objective-c which means, on a Mac, that it integrates tightly with OS X and uses Growl notification and dock badges to keep you informed about the status of the program. Besides speed and low resource requirements, Transmission includes everything you would expect to find in a torrent client.

In addition to the program itself, there is also a web interface for download management, peer exchange, support for magnet links, global and torrent by torrent speed limiting and much more.

One of the key benefits of Transmission over other torrent clients is the number of add-ons that are available. Browse through the add-ons directory and you will find everything from the ability to control torrents from your mobile to an updated web interface and much more.

What's new in 2.94 (see the release notes for more info)?

- Fix building against LibreSSL (#284, #486, #570)
- Fix building against mbedTLS (#115, #528)
- Fix torrents ETA calculation (#522)
- Fix cross-compilation issues caused by miniupnpc configuration test (#475)

Verdict:

There are a number of torrent clients to choose from, but Transmission's speed and extension options means that it is well worth a look.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
