The cross platform Transmission Bit Torrent client has announced the release Transmission 4.0.0, a major release with many new features including native support for Apple Silicon.

This is a major release, both in numbering and in effort! It's been in active development for over a year and has a huge list of changes -- over a thousand commits -- since Transmission 3.00. Some of the highlights include:
Resource Efficiency - Use less memory and fewer CPU cycles
Better Community - Pull requests welcomed and used
Code Modernization - Migrated from C90 to modern C++
New Features - What would a major release be without them?

Here are just a few of the those new features...

New Features
● Support for using BitTorrent v2 torrents and hybrid torrents. (Support for creating v2 and hybrid torrents is slated for an upcoming release.)
● Users can now set "default" trackers that can be used to announce all public torrents.
● Newly-added seeds can start immediately and verify pieces on demand, instead of needing a full verify before seeding can begin. (#2626)
● Added an option to omit potentially-identifying information (e.g. User-Agent and date created) when creating new torrents. (#3452)
● The Web client has been rewritten and now supports mobile use.
● When creating new torrents, users can now specify the piece size. (#3768, #3145, #2805)
● IPv6 blocklists are now supported. (#3835)
● Beginning with 4.0.0-beta.1, Transmission releases now use semver versioning.
● Dozens of other new features -- too many to list here! We've been working on this for a year!
