BitComet came out with a news release of their client, and as the first of all major BitTorrent clients it offers a stable 64-bit version.
The 64-bit version allows for larger disk caches, something that may benefit the heavy-duty downloaders among us.
“Our beta testing has shown the 64-bit version to be at least as stable as the 32-bit, and more so for extreme users,” the BitComet team told TorrentFreak.
“Our analysis of crash reports has shown that there are many users who have used BitComet for extreme downloading where disk cache sizes were maxing out the abilities of any 32-bit app. So now BitComet x64 has ability to support disk cache up to 16GB, compared to 2GB for 32-bit apps,”
“The average user probably doesn’t really need it yet, but for those on very fast connections who want to run a large number of tasks that operate primarily within the disk cache, this new ability is perfectly suited,” the BitComet rep added.
BitComet 1.27 and a full changelog of all the new features and fixes can be found on the official website.
