KTorrent

KTorrent is a BitTorrent program for KDE. The current release is 2.0.1 which is a bug fix release for the 2.0 release. The 2.0 release adds several big new features to KTorrent :

* Support for distributed hash tables (mainline version)
* Protocol encryption
* Bandwith scheduling
* Directory scanner to automatically load torrents in certain directories
* Trackers can now be added to torrents
* File prioritization for multi file torrents

And of course a whole bunch of bug fixes. We allready supported the following features in the previous version :

* Downloads torrent files
* Upload and download speed capping
* Internet searching using various search engines, you can even add your own
* UDP Trackers
* Port forwarding with UPnP
* IP blocking plugin
* Importing of partially or fully downloaded files

It has only been tested on linux at the moment, but it should work on most, if not all unix platforms. The latest stable version of ktorrent is 2.0.1 and it's released under the GNU GPL License.

KTorrent updated to version 2.1.4.

This is a bugfix release, and contains some minor bug fixes, most notably the .. problem in filenames.

People experiencing the DHT crash, should also upgrade.

If you run Kubuntu you'll have KTorrent installed by default. Also, for those looking for a Linux distro to try for the first time, Kubuntu provides a pretty familiar environment.

It's also in mandriva - if you select internet or multimedia as the type of station when you install the OS. Anyways... its on the DVD so you can always add it if you don't get it installed automatically.

KTorrent 2.2.3 is out
This release contains all the bugfixes from the last few months and a couple of new features, like the filterbar (hit CTRL+F and you can filter out torrents) and the possibility to manage the files of a torrent via the default webgui.

It may have been fixed, but I run into issues with KTorrent 2.1.4 where it seems to hang after any error. If it times out it will wait days for me to find out and click OK before it continues downloading.

I've been using a console program called btdownload-curses

I check it remotely through ssh, which is much faster than vnc when all of your bandwidth is going to a torrent.

nesman, they have a new beta version out if you want to try it.
KTorrent 3.0beta1 can be found on the downloads page at the bottom of the page.
I'll be posting about the final release when it's out of beta testing on here.

Both KT 2.2.5 and 3.0rc1 have been released. 2.2.5 is the next bugfix release for the 2.2 series, it contains all the bugfixes done in the last month since the 2.2.4 release.

3.0rc1 is the next step on the way to the final 3.0 release, it should be a lot better and more stable then the beta release. And it should be ready for day to day use.

Download them here.
