Mac BitTorrent: Transmission 2.7.1 gains Notification Center support
Whether it is functionality that users are demanding or just a feature that is really easy to implement, developers are delivering more and more apps with OS X Mountain Lion Notification Center. Add popular Mac BitTorrent client Transmission, which has long offered Growl compatibility, to the list of apps that offer Notification Center integration.
I don’t do a lot of torrenting, but when the need arises this is the client I use — stable, simple (no toolbars, pop-up ads, flash ads, twitter tools or anything else), free and open source. That said, Transmission 2.7.1 (release notes) is now available and it comes to market the following features and fixes:
• Notification Center support on Mountain Lion
• Torrent files can be previewed with Quick Look in the Finder
• Add an option to remove transfers when seeding completes
• Improved speed with the µTP protocol
• Fix bug that caused some incoming encrypted peer connections to fail
• Fix bugs with the speed limit scheduler
• Fix crasher with magnet links
• Fix displaying the Web Client with Bonjour
• Fix bugs with Time Machine exclusions
• Other minor interface tweaks and bug fixes
• Removed Simplified Chinese localization because of lack of localizer
