I'm using the beta and having no problems with it but why does macupdate post alphas, betas, and release candidates as the main download? You should think you should have an option for both. The average user may not know what they are downloading

I love this Client. It's simple and works great... and I know it's all done for Free... but it gets updated so infrequently, and then there was the Malware thing... So, anyone know of a good simple Torrent Client?

Transmission seems clumsy to me. I use Vuse and like it. https://www.vuze.com

Ever since this app was hit with malware twice last year, I am very wary of downloading a copy any way other than through the app's autoupdater. But when I use "Check for Update..." in 2.92, it downloads the 2.94 update then tells me "Update Error! An error occurred while extracting the archive. Please try again later." According to https://github.com/transmission/transmission/issues/600 the autoupdater doesn't work on Sierra and High Sierra. What's going on here?

MacUpdate needs a button so "We" can tell them when a Version of some Client is out. You're Two versions behind, guys!

We are very appreciative of our helpful comMUnity, and we will be considering this suggestion as we plan for more improvements. For now you are always welcome to email us info to updates@macupdate.com and we will investigate.

In this case, we had some security concerns that caused us to pause posting new versions. However, our users have redirected our attention to this product and our testing can confirm that it is safe to post new updates. Thank you again!

Hey Albabe, you can see in my reply to Leesa above that we had some concerns with this app, but thanks to you and others we have re-evaluated that position and feel safe making the current version available again.

All the best!

@ BryanatMU

Was the concern over 2.92 having the ransomeware? I've been using 2.93 since it came out with no problems... but now you have me paranoid about 2.94.

Sorry to add any anxiety with my comment. I'm not familiar with the specifics of the previous concern, but I can tell you that we wouldn't be posting this update if there was a reason to worry ?

The best browser in IMHO. Very fast and stable, no privacy concerns, and a wide choice of plugins make it my favourite in this area.

C'mon Transmission. It's been Two Years since you've updated this app, and most of us are still a bit paranoid since your last Update was hacked so some Jerk could Ransom Our Computers back to Us..

Do something to make us feel like you give a crap, please.

Used it once without problems. I use VirusBarrier Scanner from Intego which is free on the Mac App Store to scan any .dmg files and then the actual application itself before using the app.
