“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”
- Winston Churchill
Over the years, we’ve been working to turn Vuze into the easiest way to find, download, and play high quality and especially HD videos.
On this road, we’re continually coming up with new features and moving as fast as possible to get them into your hands – though neither our speed nor execution lives up to the “perfection” cited by Mr. Churchill. In fact, our speed occasionally led us to bolt features onto the existing interface in less than optimal ways, and to push core functionality into hard-to-reach back corners of the product (aka “advanced tab”). As our users, you’ve told us loudly and clearly which changes you’ve loved (which has been great) and which you’ve hated (which we’ve tried to learn from). With your feedback in mind, we decided a few months back that the time was right to re-think how the various parts of Vuze should fit together to form a great product.
Today, we launch Vuze 4.0, which has been directly inspired by your feedback. In this release, you’ll find a few key things:
- First, you’ll find a dramatically streamlined and redesigned client. All the features you know and love are included in the new design. We’ve simply focused on improving usability and ease-of-use.
- Second, you’ll find new subscriptions functionality. Now, you can easily find subscriptions related to content in your library, in the Vuze Network, or create your own subscriptions using Vuze Search or RSS.
- Third, those of you who use private trackers will find that our powerful meta-Search functionality now supports logins with user ids and passwords. (And if you haven’t yet tried our new Search, you should definitely check it out.)
- And finally, we’ve made some major improvements to our emerging content platform, the Vuze HD Network, to make it easier for you to find videos that interest you.

We’re really excited about these changes. Let us know what you think as you dive in and take the newest Vuze out for a spin. We’ll continue to refine and enhance Vuze for you, based on your comments.
