Today’s news seems to be focused around money. After reporting that Microsoft is willing to pay a $250,000 reward for information that will lead to identification, arrest and criminal conviction of the individuals behind the infamous Rustock botnet, we now report that there will be a paid version of the uTorrent application.

The paid version will be called uTorrent Plus and will be a “premium, fully equipped client for those who are looking for extra convenience and powerful new features”, announced earlier this week BitTorrent, the company that develops and maintains the BitTorrent protocol as well as the BitTorrent and the uTorrent software applications.

BitTorrent went on to say that uTorrent Plus is meant for “people who are looking for a single solution to find, get and play content anywhere, on any device” and touted the fact that uTorrent Plus users will no longer have to deal with problems such as conversion issues or device shifting. BitTorrent concluded by saying that uTorrent Plus will be made available to the public later this fall. No other details on what uTorrent Plus can do have been made public.

Now that the BitTorrent team is planning a paid version of uTorrent, does this mean they will not pay as much attention to the free version which is incredibly popular? No, not at all. BitTorrent reassured users of the free version by saying that it will continue to support the free version and will continue to allocate the same level of resources to it as it ever did.

Speaking of uTorrent, back in June we were reporting that the final and stable version of uTorrent 3.0 was rolled to the public. Or to put it in other words, uTorrent 3.0 graduated out of Beta and was released as a final, stable version. uTorrent 3.0 comes with several enhancements – read all about it here.
