Deluge 2.0 release notes

Welcome to the latest release of Deluge, a long time in the making!

What’s new

Some of the highlights since the last major release.

  • Migrated to Python 3 with minimal support retained for Python 2.7.

  • Shiny new logo.

  • Multi-user support.

  • Performance updates to handle thousands of torrents with faster loading times.

  • A New Console UI which emulates GTK/Web UIs.

  • GTK UI migrated to GTK3 with UI improvements and additions.

  • Magnet pre-fetching to allow file selection when adding torrent.

  • Fully support libtorrent 1.2 release.

  • Language switching support.

  • Improved documentation hosted on ReadTheDocs.

  • AutoAdd plugin replaces built-in functionality.

  • Web UI now daemonizes by default so service scripts will require -d option.



As well as the usual source tarball available for download we now have published Deluge on the PyPi software repository.

Windows and MacOS

Unfortunately there are no packages yet for Windows or MacOS but they are being worked on. For now alternative install methods are available for testing.

Upgrade considerations

Deluge 2.0 is not compatible with Deluge 1.x clients or daemons so these will require upgrading too. Also third-party Python scripts may not be compatible if they directly connect to the Deluge client and will need migrating.

Always make a backup of your config before a major version upgrade to guard against data loss.

Translations may not be as up-to date so please help out, see translations page.

Plugins written for Deluge 1.3 will need upgrading for Deluge 2.0, due to the requirement of Python 3 and GTK3 UI. There is a update plugin document to help Plugin authors update their plugins.
