    33From version 0.80 onward, Transmission's peer-id is formatted Azureus style with one digit for the major version, two digits for the minor version, and one character to denote a stable release (0), nightly build (Z), or prerelease beta (X). For example:
    44
    5  * -TR130X-     Beta release leading up to version 1.30
    6  * -TR1320-     Official 1.32 release
    7  * -TR132Z-     Nightly build between 1.32 and 1.33
     5 * -TR1330-     Official 1.33 release
     6 * -TR133Z-     Nightly build between 1.33 and 1.34
     7 * -TR133X-     Beta release of 1.34
     8
     9Rationale:  This differentiates between official and unofficial releases in a way easy for trackers to detect with simple string comparison.  An official release ("-TR1330-") is lexigraphically smaller than its post-release unsupported versions ("-TR133Z-" and "-TR133X-"), which in turn are lexigraphically smaller than the next official release ("-TR1340-").
