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
