Its code is freely available online and is licensed under either the GNU Public License v2 or the MIT License. The development team welcomes anyone who is interested in contributing code, documentation, translations, or other help.

Current Transmission 4.04 massively downloads with zero progress. The problem has been posted in their forums with no resolution. I'm looking for an alternative. I am on a Macbook Pro M1 Pro running macOS Sonoma 14.1.1

Seven month and the Transmission folks still haven't fixed the "Sort By Que" Pull-Down. Transmission is dead to me.
