The Vuze team have released version 4.5 of the popular BitTorrent client.

This latest release provides users with a new speed test, support for transcoding and transferring content to Android phones and iOS 4.

The new speed test
The heavily touted new Speed Test promises that users will see “significant increases in download speed” after running.

It’s a noble effort and whilst my speed seemed no faster – nor any slower – than that of default torrent client ‘Transmission’, the ‘optimization test’ will undoubtedly be of benefit to many users.

Other new features include the ability to assign numeric file priorities, basic streaming playback support and library view tweaks.

Vuze is a Java based application that requires Java 1.5 or higher to run.
