logged into a general interest (read: not free software centric in the least) bittorrent community i'm a part of and they've taken to banning many clients which are just way too broken, as defined by "kills the trackers". in the announcement they say: "Currently, we recommend current versions of : uTorrent, Azureus, Transmission, ktorrent, rtorrent, tomato." (emphasis mine)
aw, look! there's our very own baby, ktorrent, fourth in the list! moreover they say, "Most torrent clients are NOT banned, too many too list." yet ktorrent made the short list. congrats to the ktorrent team, who've created an amazingly flexible client that routinely gives me terrific download rates and all the control i could ever hope for in a very reasonable resource footprint. apparently others are noticing and using it. to think that just a couple years ago there was no good, let alone great torrent client written using the Qt/KDE framework.
i'm building the kde4 version right now to test it out, with hopes i can leave one more kde3 app behind. maybe ktorrent will be the first extragear app to get the "in love all over again" treatment? =)
