From Bram Cohen
The new BitTorrent for Windows brings together BitTorrent's proven expertise in networking protocols with µTorrent's efficient implementation and compelling UI to create a better BitTorrent client.
You'll also notice BitTorrent comes with BitTorrent DNA, which stands for Delivery Network Accelerator. BitTorrent DNA is an enterprise-grade content delivery accelerator. It is distributed by your favorite websites and software companies to speed up your downloads by connecting to multiple sources of the same file. During and after each download, your computer helps distribute what you download. By giving and receiving in this way, your favorite websites operate more efficiently and provide a better and faster experience for everyone.
BitTorrent respects your privacy and only accelerates content that you want. It does not use your computer for unwanted data and does not negatively affect other applications that use your Internet connection. BitTorrent DNA contains no spyware, adware, or malware of any kind.

# μTP, an updated BitTorrent protocol that makes efficient use of bandwidth while reducing network problems, is a critical component in continuing to drive that legacy forward. μTP is an enhanced BitTorrent transfer protocol that we introduced in our μTorrent client a few months back. While BitTorrent 6.x clients partially supported it, the new BitTorrent 7 client now has support for μTP on a par with the popular μTorrent software
# UDP NAT-traversal an improved way to find peers who might otherwise be stuck behind firewalls
# Transfer Cap feature a way to limit the total bytes transferred by your client in a specific period, to keep you in line with any limits imposed by your ISP
# UDP Tracker support a way to reduce the load on trackers and improve performance
