Review: Deluge 1.1.6 - Powerful BitTorrent Client for GNOME

Filed under
Reviews

Written in GTK, Deluge is a powerful BitTorrent client which, in my opinion, is the GNOME counterpart to KTorrent, the most popular client in KDE. The version I will review in this article is the latest at the time of writing, 1.1.6, released on April 6, 2009.

Deluge 1.1.6

Deluge has a clean, easy to use interface which may be familiar for those who used KTorrent. At the bottom Deluge will display in several tabs plenty of information regarding the active torrents:
- the status of the download (download speed, upload speed, share ratio, seeders, peers, ETA etc.)
- details like the name, hash, number of files or total size of the torrent
- the files included in the torrent
- peers IPs, client version and speeds
- the last tab, Options, will allow to set individual settings for each torrent you are downloading, including bandwidth and sharing settings or the location where the torrent will be saved

"Linux" doesn't tell you whether the kernel can deal with buffers being passed when the spec says it should be a package. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS knows how to deal with an HPET. "Linux" doesn't tell you whether the OS can reinitialise graphics hardware. Read more
