    "This a beta release; 1 star for that reason only."

    January 20, 2009  |   By ultimately_myself

    Pros

    Supports uTP to circumvent ISP bandwidth throttling.

    Cons

    ver 1.9, build 13910 is still in beta; it's somewhat buggy and not intended for general use.

    Summary

    Sorry about the '1 star'; it's not meant to comment on the software, but rather to draw attention to the fact that this is not a stable (final) release of this version.
    Don't understand why this ver is on Download.com, but not marked as a beta.
    And with the appearance of this beta here, the stable ver is no longer available on this website (but readily available at utorrent.com and elsewhere.
    As of this writing, the stable release is ver 1.8.1.12639 .

    Updated on Jan 22, 2009

    When I submitted my review 2 days ago, the Download.com editors' review was not yet associated with this version. Now that their review is here, I believe, to the best of my recollection, that it is the same review they had put up for the stable ver (1.8) of uTorrent that was previously available here. So, this review still does not point out that ver 1.9 is a beta release only.

    Hey, I appreciate the work done here to help sort out all the software available, but would like to see the editors change a couple things:
    1) date the editors' reviews and state which ver it applies to.
    2) reset the "downloads" and "votes" counters when a new version is put up; the numbers currently indicated are too high to refer just to this recently added beta version.

    Again, this is not so much a complaint as an attempt to add helpful feedback.
