Transmission differs from bigger clients like ?Torrent, Vuze, and BitComet in that it is volunteer-based, open source, and noncommercial. There is no payware version as with Vuze Plus. We don't bundle toolbars, adware, DNA, or anything else. If we did, someone else would fork the project and strip it back out.

Feature Spotlight:

* Uses fewer resources than other clients
* Native Mac, GTK+ and Qt GUI clients
* Daemon ideal for servers, embedded systems, and headless use
* All these can be remote controlled by Web and Terminal clients
* Bluetack (PeerGuardian) blocklists with automatic updates
* Full encryption, DHT, PEX and Magnet Link support

Install transmission 2.04 in Ubuntu 10.04/9.10

    It’s not actually performing the upgrade…”The following packages have been held back” yet it identifies that three transmission packages are to be upgraded.

    what am I doing wrong?
