We’re continuously working on adding new features and updating our Vuze Bittorrent Client to make it powerful and customizable for our users. Today, we’re sharing a few updates that will keep you smiling while you torrent. Read on to get the scoop on our latest enhancements.
What’s included in Vuze 5.6.1?
The ability to browse downloaded content via your web browser can be accessed either by double clicking while in ‘library’ view or by right-clicking on the download and choosing the ‘Open in browser’ menu item. Both pubic and anonymous browsers are supported with downloaded content displayed via a local address in the browser. Static and dynamic content are allowed.
For detailed information and examples please visit the Vuze Wiki entry on decentralized websites.
Although seeding (non-infringing files) is an important and integral part of torrenting there may be times where you want to stop seeding in an effort to conserve network resources. The archiving feature makes this easy!
By archiving a download you’re able to reactivate it at a later time. This is handy for torrents that might require re-seeding. Archiving lets you quickly locate downloads on disk when needed and reinstate them with a simple right-click.
To learn more about the feature check out archiving downloads on the Vuze Wiki.
Additional features and updates as shared on the Vuze Dev Blog include:
- Support for opening.torrent files that have been gzipped
- Added peer-set based per-peer max upload/download limits
- Implemented deletion in archive view and reduced memory usage
- Fixed sidebar tag ordering bug
- Fixed sidebar config not being maintained from an empty state
- Show default nick in chat view
- Double-click another nick name to enter them in a message
- Drag+drop archiving, right-click for ‘restore and…’ option for restoring and showing right-click menu
- Persist ‘private torrent’ state across new-torrent wizard invocations
- Add ‘current version’ to update dialog
- Fix unlimited connection limited announce fallback bug
- Added Help menu Advanced options to convert bencoded files to JSON and back – this is useful if you want to manually edit (for example) azureus.config as JSON can be relatively safely edited in a text editor.
- Added option to delete the original torrent after adding to Vuze – Tools->Options->Files->Torrents
- Pick up changes in network more dynamically
