Transmission 2.10

Transmission (bittorrent client) 2.10 was released a few days ago, and while it doesn't bring major changes, the new version includes several performance improvements (small memory cache to reduce disk IO and some minor CPU optimizations), support for a cookies.txt file, support for automatically stopping idle seeding torrents, new command line options and other changes which you can see HERE.

The latest Transmission 2.10 is available in the Transmission stable PPA for Ubuntu Hardy, Karmic, Lucid and Maverick so to install it, use the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:transmissionbt/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install transmission
