BitTorrent 7.10.5
Download torrents faster and with more control than ever

BitTorrent is a fast and free peer-to-peer file sharing application that makes it easy to locate and download torrents from around the web.

The program includes its own search box. Enter a few keywords describing whatever you're looking for, and a browser windows will open at Ask.com with whatever matching torrents the site could uncover. Follow the links, and as long as you made BitTorrent your default torrent application during installation, the program should open and begin downloading your selected file.

BitTorrent isn't your default app? Click Options > Preferences and you can set up your file associations manually. And while you're there, knowledgeable users may want to take advantage of BitTorrent's many customisation options. You're able to tweak the port used for incoming connections; limit upload and download rates to ensure there's bandwidth left for other apps; cap torrent transfers to a particular amount in the past month; use a scheduler to enable BitTorrent to run at full speed only during the times you define, and more.

BitTorrent 7 takes all this further, from support for both global and per-torrent speed limiting, to adding entirely new features like an RSS Downloader. Yet it still remains fast and extremely lightweight, with the core program consuming barely more than 7MB RAM (private working set) when it's first launched - this isn't a tool that's going to slow you down.

BitTorrent 7 also gets a dramatic rewrite to its disk i/o, which means noticeable performance gains in multi-tasking. For example, you can delete files from a torrent or move torrents to a new location, but without the usual slow-down in torrent downloading. Or, download torrents to two different drives, but with the speed of downloading to a single drive. You'll notice gains at both low and high speeds, and whether you're writing to local disk, a RAID or a network drive. You'll also experience improvements to the disk subsystem and rate limiter.

What's new in 7.10.5 (see release history for more)?

– Fix config remote hang
– Adding torrents by magnet links and hashes now updates statistic of number of torrents added
– Change remote Registration Failure dialog from Yes/No to OK
– Remove Pro-only “Show Converted Files” choice from menu in non PRO product
– Fix crash parsing magnet links
– Update the toolbar icons
– Fix crash causes by inconsistent string settings
– Clear the setting that potentially causing crash

Verdict:

A capable and effective BitTorrent client

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
