About

What is Deluge?

Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent client for Linux, Unix and Windows. It uses libtorrent in it's backend and PyGTK for it's user interface.

Deluge features a rich plugin collection; in fact, most of Deluge's functionality is available in the form of plugins.

Deluge was created with the intention of being lightweight and unobtrusive. It is our belief that downloading shouldn't be the primary task on your computer and therefore shouldn't monopolize system resources.

Deluge is not designed for any one desktop environment and will work just fine in GNOME, KDE, XFCE and others.

Deluge is Free Software and is licensed under the GNU General Public License.

The Deluge Team consists of Marcos Pinto, Andrew Resch, Sadrul Habib Chowdhury, and Martijn Voncken. Previous developers include Zach Tibbitts and Alon Zakai.
