Add popular Mac BitTorrent client Transmission, which has long offered Growl compatibility, to the list of apps that offer Notification Center integration

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
