New BitComet Version Released

Postby quicksilver » Fri Apr 29, 2005 1:07 pm

Seems theres a newer version of Bit Comet to download that addresses a few of the issues raised by some of the folks who run the trackers, good to hear :)

http://www.bitcomet.com/index.htm

BitComet is a p2p file-sharing freeware fully compatible with Bittorrent, which is one of the most popular p2p protocol designed for high-speed distribution of 100MB or GB sized files. BitComet is a powerful, clean, fast, and easy-to-use bittorrent client. It supports simultaneous downloads, download queue, selected downloads in torrent package, fast-resume, chatting, disk cache, speed limits, port mapping, proxy, ip-filter, etc.


Chatting now ? Thats always a good sign as it allows the users to spread the word about fast moving events even if a forum is taken down along with a tracker.
The more technical items here are way above my head, but I,m glad its still an ongoing project :D

Theres a small article here about its changes and improvements

BitComet .64 Released
April 12, 2006
Thomas Mennecke

BitComet's turbulent past has actually managed to enhance its popularity. The release of version .60 allowed the client to share peers associated with private trackers with the public BitTorrent population. Although this infuriated private trackers and resulted in BitComet's banishment from many such trackers, it helps exemplify a paradoxal double standard in the BitTorrent community.

The situation was subsequently resolved, with developer RnySmile reverting back to version .59. This version did not contain the bug that allowed the sharing of private peers; however was a technological step backwards from .60. Further resolving the situation, RnySmile upgraded the BitComet application and restoring the features lost in version .60 by releasing .61, .62 and .63.

Contrary to most other P2P development, BitComet continues to set the pace by issuing releases on a consistent basis. Today reinforces BitComet's consistence, as a stable version of .64 has been released. Although mostly cosmetic, there are several core bug fixes that should make this BitTorrent application ever slightly more stable.

From the BitComet homepage:
GUI Improved: the optional IE toolbar is removed
GUI Improved: able to read RSS feed
GUI Bugfix: chat user list is removed temporarily
Core Bugfix: fix the bug that the play button doesn't work after click stop button in task preview window
Core Bugfix: fix the bug that unable to seek continuous when preview avi/rm file
