uTorrent 3 alpha goes 64-bit

If you've been waiting for a native 64-bit version of uTorrent, your wait is over! The team has released its first alpha version for testing, and it's ready to download and install on your Windows x64 system. Just head on over to the uTorrent 3.0 alpha 64-bit forum post for the link.

So what does the 64-bit version get you? Not a lot, as far as your torrent experience is concerned. Support for a larger disk cache is about it, along with the fact that Windows won't have to do any x86 emulation to run uTorrent. Commenters have reported occasional crashing, but this is an alpha release we're talking about -- so that's to be expected.
