Well it seems like theres something new to play with :D
2005-03-07: 4.0.0 is now available.
Changes since the last stable release:
All new queue-based user interface
Many options are now modifiable from the interface, including upload rate
Lots of other interface improvements
Extra stats are visible, for those who like it
Remembers what it was doing across restarts
New .torrent maker "btmaketorrentgui" replaces "btcompletedir"
Better performance, as always
License has changed to the BitTorrent Open Source License
Torrent fields are correctly created and interpreted as utf8
Too many little things to list
A few technical notes, for those interested:
Single port: launchmany can seed and client can download many files from a single port and thread
Interface now uses GTK instead of wxWidgets
BitTorrent packets are marked as bulk data to make traffic shaping easier
This multi platform offering ,features the usual amount of updates and bugfixes , whos, going to test it first ?
