BitTorrent App Transmission Updated With Apple Silicon Support
The popular BitTorrent Mac app Transmission has been updated to add support for Apple silicon.
The move means that the app no longer has to run in emulation mode via Rosetta when used on M1 and M2-series Macs.
The move to a native Apple silicon app means that Transmission can make better use of the resources available to it while likely also performing more speedily on modern Macs.
The app is also now a universal binary which means that there is only one version of the app for users to download no matter whether they have an Apple silicon Mac or one running an Intel chip.
The newly updated BitTorrent app, which also has versions available for Windows and Linux, has also reportedly been updated to migrate away from the aging C90 codebase to the more modern C++.
As for other improvements, there is now support for BitTorrent v2. torrents as well as hybrid torrents. MacRumors also notes that people can now set default trackers that can be used to announce all public torrents should they so wish.
The updated Transmission is now available for download form the app’s website and is absolutely free of charge. Those looking to get their hands on a great BitTorrent app should definitely check it out.
