Azureus brings the popular Java-based BitTorrent client to a new level of stability, usability, and speed.

Very actively developed, this latest version includes a new split-window MyTorrents view with support for categories and advanced downloading / seeding / queuing rules for powerful and automated torrent management, a customizable user interface, seeding from read-only media, and significant reductions in resource usage.
