Transmission 2.84 was released on 2014/07/01. I think it deserves an update for the LTS to keep track of the new fixes.

The fixes include https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/Changes#version-2.90:

    Initial CMake build system support
    Many improvements to support Windows builds with MSVS and MinGW; drop XP/2003 support, only Vista and up now
    Allow building against system UTP and DHT libraries
    Fix several memory leaks and buffer overflows

    Fix invalid JSON encoding for non-printable characters
    Fix multi-threaded locale use when encoding/decoding JSON data
    Fix encrypted communication with libevent 2.1+

My version of Transmission is 2.92 (14714) and I don't have any PPA installed. So maybe this bug should be marked as closed, maybe somebody else can confirm this before closing the bug
