    "The current version of Transmission is now 2.7.6."

    January 9, 2013  |   By zunipus


    My favorite of the easy torrent clients. Features encryption and blacklisting.


    None lately. In the past it could go flaky and freak your system after hours of work. But that appears to be gone.


    The current version is 2.7.6. If you find the link at VT/CNET is FAILing, a new version has probably been released. Here is where to go for the very latest version:

    Here is one of the current web links to use in for the up-to-date blacklist. If this link fails, there are others:

    Enter this link under Preferences/Peers/Blocklist. Be certain you use BOTH a blocklist and encryption! Be absolutely sure you keep your blocklist up-to-date every time you use Transmission or any other torrent client. Also be absolutely sure you turn on encryption and ONLY accept encrypted peers. NEVER use Transmission without the blocklist AND encryption if you want to remain as safe as possible.

    As always:
    • Don't just be a LEACH! Keep your ratio (upload:download) over 1.0! Be a pal and keep it over 2.0.
    • Don't torrent copyrighted data. The RIAA and MPAA would love to royally screw you over beyond justice or fairness. They HATE you and they want to prove it to you. No joke. Be safe and careful out there.
