Publisher's Description

Deluge uses libtorrent in it's backend and PyGTK for it's user interface.It features a rich plugin collection; in fact, most of Deluge's functionality is available in the form of plugins. It was created with the intention of being lightweight and unobtrusive. It is our belief that downloading shouldn't be the primary task on your computer and therefore shouldn't monopolize system resources. It is not designed for any one desktop environment and will work just fine in GNOME, KDE, XFCE and others.

I use this on Ubuntu - very nice little client.

Works just as I like it.

Keep up the good work.

You really should try the latest release. At the time I posted similar criticism of the early Windows betas. The Windows version has improved beyond recognition and really is worth giving another go.

Absolutely fantastic client! Used it on Ubuntu for a long time but the Windows version was too buggy. Just recently tried it again and it's MUCH better. Way more stable, really quick and not experiencing any issues i was have a while ago.

Keep up the awesome work Deluge team.

Extremely slow o.0 ? Rubbish ? (/facepalm) Rubbish is created by throwing away a wrapper off your hamburger. Software is hard work!

Runs just fine on my old celeceron with 256Mb RAM. And have no comaplaint about GUI either.

Completely agree emanresU deriseD, this is absolute rubbish (at least on windows). Extremely slow and cumbersome with hideous looking GUI.

uTorrent (when I last used it) forced me to open my ip-blocker to BitTorrent inc in order to access the DHT.
Given that there's no obvious need for this - and BitTorrent's links with the movie industry - that was good enough reason for me to use a different torrent client

A complete clunkfest, complete with "GTK+" dependencies. It's slow, it's ugly, and it will remove any preexisting .torrent association you have on your system when it's removed (because, you know, the installer is too stupid to know if it CHANGED it or if it ADDED it).

I can see no reason whatsoever for a Windows-only user to use this over uTorrent or Vuze. Regarding the DHT paranoia mentioned above: You can unblock JUST router.bittorrent.com, or you can bootstrap DHT from peers you connect with normally. uTorrent does not rely on connections to BitTorrent, Inc. for DHT to work. If you're so paranoid about the MPAA and DHT, you'd better stop using DHT completely, since all they have to do is establish one DHT node, and they have your IP address and the hash of the torrent(s) you have active. It has nothing to do with BitTorrent, Inc's server.

I'm now running release 1.1.5 and this application has improved massively since my previous post - stable, feature rich and a very clean interface. It's now my default torrent client.

The info provided says lightweight and 26 KB but the download comes in as a heavyweight at 26 MB. I do not need a supersize program for torrent downloads. Sorry.

Sadly I have to concur with "been" on this...on the Linux platform this product is excellent and some Windows versions have been good but others have been horribly buggy and recent versions simply don't work at all. It makes no sense at all to release broken product and merely wastes the time of, and annoys, users. As a Linux only product I would give 4 to 5 stars but here the Windows product is under review hence the minimum 1 star rating.

This program started out as a promising looking open-source torrent client. The developers make their distaste for Windows clear on their own website and each release of the Windows port has been buggier and more unstable than the previous.
The most recent release 1.0.0 RC8 doesn't work at all in Windows and I wonder if it's even intended to.

I'm reluctant to criticise developers who give their time and effort for free, and I'm sure than that Deluge is an excellent piece of Linux software.

But if it's not possible to produce a Windows version of this client that works then please don't produce a Windows version at all, otherwise everyone's time and effort is wasted.

A straight forward torrent program that is similar to uTorrent, but has many different features.

The filesize of course is a lot bigger than uT, but who cares?

The only problem I have had is when I try to delete torrents from the program they never delete. If I restart the program they are gone though.

I hope to see many more updates for this program.

Works efficiently under Linux. Straightforward to use, with an uncluttered, clean interface.

I gave this a try a little bit ago when looking to update from my 1.6 utorrent but I found this to be lacking in too many basic features. Not ready for prime time imo and the speeds need improvement. This client isn't Windows native and is making the move over and it shows. The GUI is a little bit on the chuncky side and it is a touch buggy but nothing really to complain about. Again for me its the lack of some basic features that make utorrent a pleasure to work with.

I'll keep my eye on this though and see how it matures

Not fully featured as uTorrent, but the only bittorrent client Iv'e tried that beat it for downloads speed. Quite stable, actively developed. Very good.
