Is Transmission for macOS abandoned?

Post by muse laundromat »

I'm genuinly asking and am concerned. Transmission 3.00 was released 22nd of may 2020. This is two years ago, and there's been no updates since. Transmission is still not updated for Apple sillicon M1-processors, which coincidentally also was released in 2020. I know there are some work on the nightly builds, but two years and still nothing stable has been released? Plus the website screams "outdated and no longer maintained".

Is development of Transmission dying?

Transmission is very much alive, and i recommend checking out the nightlies. https://build.transmissionbt.com/job/trunk-mac/

There are code changes almost every day at the moment. https://github.com/transmission/transmi ... mmits/main

Just today i've asked users if they want changes to the design of 'Groups'. https://github.com/transmission/transmi ... sions/3083

Thanks! That’s good to know, but why hasn’t there been any betas or stable releases in almost two years? And what is the ETA for the next beta/ stable?
