It uses [http://www.libtorrent.org/ libtorrent] in it's backend and features multiple user-interfaces including: GTK+, web and console. It has been designed using the client server model with a daemon process that handles all the bittorrent activity.  The Deluge daemon is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces being able to connect remotely from any platform.
