"Get the older version if you need a proxy"

I made the mistake of doing an auto update from version 2.11 to 2.12 and found a necessary feature had disappeared without notice - the ability to connect to an anonymous proxy. I'm not saying I'm downloading copyrighted material with this client, but anyone who is might be advised to use an anonymous proxy service - and this client just doesn't have it anymore. If you're not worried about getting sued by the MPAA or RIAA or their flunkies, go ahead and use this client. It's actually an awesome program with lots of speed and unlike Vuze, it won't kill your Internet service by overwhelming your router with too many connections.
