BitTornado is a torrent downloader for Linux.
BitTorrent is a tool for distributing files. BitTornado is extremely easy to use and downloads are started by clicking on hyperlinks. Whenever more than one person is downloading at once they send pieces of the file(s) to each other, thus relieving the central server's bandwidth burden.
Even with many simultaneous downloads, the upload burden on the central server remains quite small, since each new downloader introduces new upload capacity.
What's New in This Release:
· T-0.3.16 was a huge success; the crashing bug seems to have been squashed flat, thank you so very much wxWidgets and wxPython. As a result, after a few very minor changes, here is T-0.3.17, a new stable release. This replaces the rather archaic T-0.3.7 as the latest stable version.
