Install Latest Deluge 1.3.0 RC1 in Ubuntu Lucid Using PPA

Deluge is a feature rich bit torrent client, which is really popular among Linux users. Deluge is cross platform and works in OS X, Unix and Windows platforms as well. Though I would rate KDE's KTorrent over Deluge, Deluge is definitely well integrated into the Ubuntu's Gnome desktop. Deluge recently released the first release candidate of Deluge 1.3 series packed with a lot of new features and bug fixes.

What's new in Deluge 1.3.0 RC1?
  • Improved plugin support.
  • WebUI got a lot of enhancements and improvements, especially by giving priority to the scenario in which large number of torrents are there in a session. 
  • A new plugin called AutoAdd allows for an unlimited amount of watch folders and for providing options for torrents added for those folders.
  • Another Plugin called Notifications replaces the previously built-in notification support and provides more features.
  • Full changelog here.
