Download µTorrent 3.0 Alpha Featuring Remote Control, Apps and Video Torrent Streaming

Written By Sam on 12 July 2010

µTorrent team has released uTorrent 3.0 alpha which is the combination of two experimental projects “Falcon” and “Griffin”. This new release is a huge leap from the previous version 2.1. uTorrent 3.0 alpha comes with many features including remote control, Apps and has the capacity to stream video torrents. The VPN users IP address will not be exposed to the public, since uTorrent has taken preventive steps to overcome this.

BitTorrent Inc team has come up with many interesting features in their latest version, one such feature is the ability of users to install extensions with ease and add custom features. This helps the users to stream torrent video files and access their client distantly via a secure web- interface. The new release comes with patch for the major security flaw via which VPN users real IP – address has been exposed. IPv6 is the reason for this, hence uTorrent have disabled IPv6 by default, and however those who do not use VPN can enable it in the advanced settings.

µTorrent have released new Appa which includes µBrowse. Once these app specs are made available to developers we can expect more useful apps. The new features of uTorrent is for Windows users only, a stable version of the Mac client has also been released recently. The Linux version of µTorrent is under work and expected to be released soon.
