Looks like BitTorrent v4 has been released. New clients for Windows, Mac and Linux.

From the release notes:

2005-03-07: 4.0.0 is now available.
Changes since the last stable release:

  • All new queue-based user interface
  • Many options are now modifiable from the interface, including upload rate
  • Lots of other interface improvements
  • Extra stats are visible, for those who like it
  • Remembers what it was doing across restarts
  • New .torrent maker "btmaketorrentgui" replaces "btcompletedir"
  • Better performance, as always
  • License has changed to the BitTorrent Open Source License
  • Torrent fields are correctly created and interpreted as utf8
  • Too many little things to list

A few technical notes, for those interested:

  • Single port: launchmany can seed and client can download many files from a single port and thread
  • Interface now uses GTK instead of wxWidgets
  • BitTorrent packets are marked as bulk data to make traffic shaping easier
