BTQueue 0.1.3 has been released

It was about a month since BTQueue 0.1.2 released last month. I would like to introduce BTQueue 0.1.3 which is actually a minor bug fixes version with several features added. In this version "peer" command is back again. You can query the latest peer list replied by the tracker anytime you like. In addition, I added "eval" command that allows you to view or modify data in memory on the fly. This function will be very useful if you are Python programmers. Since I have just gotten a chance to use DHT, it is possible to force DHT by setting local policy; otherwise, DHT will be forced if the announce URL starts with udp://. The option --saveas has been fixed to work as except. One more thing, IP to Country database has been updated to include up-to-date mapping.... read more

I know that I has just released 0.1.1 only 5 days ago but it worths to upgrade if it has a good enhancement like this.

BTQueue 0.1.1 has been released

I am very happy to announce the release of BTQueue 0.1.1 at release number 451. In this version, I focused on fixing race condition, handling error and integrating to external frontend. There is one change that you have to know. resume command now just changes any state of given ID to waiting for the next scheduling. If you want to force it to run immediately, you have to use option "-f". Two commands are introduced in this version: du (disk usage) and df (disk free). These commands are to help integration with external frontend with quota support. Lastly, you are able to see latest error message again.

BTQueue 0.1.0 has been released

I'm very exciting to announce the release of BTQueue 0.1.0. After very so long waiting for a year, I have finished BTQueue 0.1.0 and hopefully it works well without the classical bugs, e.g., 100% utilization and freezing.

This version is kind of beta release. You can leave comments and report bugs to help me fix them all. My purpose is to develop BitTorrent client for production run in data center and co-location.... read more

BTQueue 0.0.18 has been released

Eventually, BTQueue 0.0.18 has been released with lots of new
features, improvements, and bugs fixed. In this version, xmlrpc is
heavily used to fully support remote submission so that it is the
first cluster-ready BitTorrent client. In addition, low disk space
checking mechanism has been added to prevent consuming all
disk in automatic crawler mode. Output table now is rendered
dynamically to eliminate misalign column. Furthermore, you are
allowed to specify favorite table formatting or define as alias. A
most requested feature is file selection for multifile torrent.
Actually, BitTornado provides this capability for long. However,
BTQueue gives you more flexibility to generate priorities string
for large number of files in a line. Peers command has also added
to help you identify problem when no connection has been made
in reasonable period.
Don't waste your time. Try it right now!
