Deluge 1.3.12 Released, How to Upgrade in Ubuntu


A new release of Deluge BitTorrent Client was release yesterday with a collection of fixes to keep the 1.3 stable.

Deluge 1.3.12 is the first stable release in 2015. It brings following fixes and improvements:

  • GTK UI: Add Torrent dialog does not appear
  • Include fix for Twisted 15.0 URI class rename
  • Enable lt extension bindings again for versions >=0.16.7 (this disables Tracker Exchange by default)
  • Backport atomic fastresume and state file saving fixes as another attempt to prevent data loss on unclean exits
  • WebUI: Fixed i18n issue in Connection Manager which left users unable to connect
  • WebUI: Increase cookie lifespan for display settings
  • Console: Fixed ‘set and then get’ in config command
  • Scheduler Plugin: Show current speed limit in statusbar
  • Win32 packaging fixes.

How to Install / Upgrade Deluge in Ubuntu:

The new release has been made into Deluge’s official PPA, available for Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and their derivatives (e.g., Linux Mint 13/17, Elementary OS Freya).

1. To add the PPA.

Open terminal from the Dash, App Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut keys. When it opens, run command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa

2. After that, run commands to update system cache and install Deluge (GTK UI):

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install deluge

You may install the package deluge-web or deluge-console if you want the Web UI or the console UI.

For those who have a previous release installed, Deluge can be upgraded directly via Software Updater.
